BEST KAY HOOPER BOOKS
Here are some books that were written by Kay Hooper to check out, if you would like to get into reading her work.
Out of the Shadows: Book three in the “Bishop/ Special Crimes Unit” series, that comes from the “Shadow” trilogy part of the series. A nice town in Tennessee has become a killing field for a monster. Two bodies that were tortured before death are found, while a third person has gone missing. The little evidence that is left behind is baffling. The Sheriff in the town, Miranda Knight decides to enlist Noah Bishop, an FBI profiler to help solve the case, which is something that she swore that she would never do. This is as a result of something that happened years ago to Miranda and her sister by Noah. Catching the killer is going to be vital to Miranda, not to mention personal, as the killer has targeted a member of Miranda’s family to get to her.
Touching Evil: Book four in the “Bishop/ Special Crimes Unit” series, that comes from the “Evil” trilogy part of the series. Maggie Barnes is a police sketch artist in Seattle, and has a gift. She can listen to the crime victims tell their stories and draw a precise, detailed sketch that is quite accurate. Some believe that she enters the minds of the victim (with the use of telepathy). Maggie knows how she does it, but does not tell anyone her techniques. At the same time, a madman is going around blinding women after abducting them. Once he is done with them, they are left barely alive. The cops have one hope left in the case, a victim that is still alive and may recover her vision. Maggie is linked to the killer, but has not told anyone how.
Whisper of Evil: Book five in the “Bishop/ Special Crimes Unit” series, that comes from the “Evil” trilogy part of the series. A killer is on the loose and has already killed three people. The victims are upstanding members of the community in the town of Silence. Each man also harbored a dark secret that was only discovered after they were killed. Nell Gallagher returns after over a decade away with some secrets of her own. She must risk life and limb, not to mention sanity to use her skills as a psychic to help catch this killer. There is also a man that she would like to regain the trust of, after she left him all those years ago.
