In this heavily atmospheric sequel to 2012's Haven, bestseller Hooper once again teams Noah Bishop and members of the FBI's Special Crimes Unit with Haven, a private investigative firm whose agents' special abilities blend nicely with those of Bishop's agents. The escape of bank robber Cole Jacoby during a prisoner transfer catches Bishop's attention because Jacoby apparently used psychic powers to get away from his guards. Bishop, who always knows more than he shares with his agents, already has an agent near Jacoby's suspected Tennessee mountain hideout when Haven dispatches agent Luther Brinkman to the area. SCU telepath Callie Davis and clairvoyant Brinkman connect and combine their special abilities. Meanwhile, SCU's medium Hollis Templeton and telepath Reese DeMarco are on a mission in the same area that finds them confronting numerous spirits and a vortex of evil at massive, old Alexander House. Hooper's characters have a dazzling array of psychic abilities and need them all to combat the growing evil possessing and controlling Jacoby in this modern, yet still gothic, tale. (Nov.)
