The Night Is Watching

Heather Graham. Mira, $7.99 mass market (400p) ISBN 978-0-7783-1506-3

Bestseller Graham launches the third arc in her paranormal romantic suspense Krewe of Hunters series (The Unseen, etc.) with a rousing tale of the intriguing haunted town of Lily, Ariz. Sheriff Sloan Trent is accustomed to reports of strange activities, including ghost sightings. However, the discovery of a human skull in the basement of the Gilded Lily Theater motivates him to summon FBI agent and forensic artist Jane Everett. Lily holds unsolved historical mysteries—such as the 1872 disappearance of the Gilded Lily’s best actress, Sage McCormick, and a stagecoach full of gold—and also contemporary ones, including murder and more mayhem during the Silverfest celebration. Readers will enjoy Sloan and Jane’s interactions as romantic partners and competent professionals, aided by Lily’s ghosts, although mystery solvers may be frustrated by some of Graham’s suspense tactics. Agent: Aaron Priest, the Aaron Priest Literary Agency. (June)
