What if you can enter a madman's cruel mind as he plans his vicious crimes? What if you can see the terrified face of his prey as he moves in for the kill—but you can't stop his frenzy once he strikes?Psychic Cassie Neill helps the L.A. police catch killers—until she makes a terrible mistake and an innocent child dies. Cassie flees to a small North Carolina town, hoping that a quiet life will silence the voices that invade her unwilling mind. But Cassie's abilities know few boundaries. And she's become certain—as no one else can be—that a murderer is stalking Ryan's Bluff. It's his fury that Cassie senses first, then his foul thoughts and perverse excitement. Yet she doesn't know who he is or where he will strike. The sheriff won't even listen to her—until the first body is found exactly where and how she predicted. Now a suspect herself, she races desperately to unmask the killer in the only way she knows: by entering his twisted mind. Her every step is loaded with fear and uncertainty...because if he senses her within him, he'll trap her there, so deep she'll never find her way out.

Now, Bishop's adventures continue in two new electrifying tales of psychic suspense.Beware of what you see. It's dawn when the police arrive at the murder scene.

The killer knew she was there. And next time he won't let her get away.
  • If you had knowledge of somebody being in danger, would you feel a need to warn that person? Does having knowledge of a thing - even if it will never touch you - give you some responsibility over that thing? It's an interesting philosophical question. I can hear environmentalists and animal rights activists arguing that endangered species or disappearing habitats are prime examples of just that kind of responsibility. What does it matter if you will never go to that particular area of jungle? It exists and should be protected because - well, why? Because life has inherent value.

    So when a person has knowledge of impending danger, if they choose not to act on that knowledge, they will surely be villainized by all who find out. Or nearly all. Cries of outrage and exclamations of, "I would have handled that so much better!" will be the refrain to which the guilty party makes their exit from civilized society. Because, clearly, the person who allows danger to befall another when they could have stopped it is nothing short of a monster. A participant in the harm itself.

    But when you consider that, based on current culture and society, the knowledge is, at its core, seemingly unbelievable - how does that change things? "I saw signs that this would happen," would likely be completely dismissed, even by the future victim.

    This conundrum is what Cassie Neill finds herself in the middle of. Having fled her previously life to take up residence in an inherited home in Smallsville, USA, she had hoped to live quietly to herself for the rest of her days. But then she has a vision of someone being in danger, and cannot bear not trying to help. So she puts herself at risk, going to two sources who likely will never believe her, to deliver a warning and hope for the best. But one of those two parties doesn't let her walk away after her warning. Doesn't let it go as unbelievable fluff.

    From that point on, the two share a journey of trying to stay one step ahead of evil, and keep the people of Ryan's Bluff safe. Cassie must learn to trust herself, and trust the man who has come so unexpectedly into her world.

    This is a twisting, shocking tale that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat long into the night. I found it difficult to stop even at the end of a chapter, wanting so badly to know what happens next. And upon finishing this book, I immediately started on the next book in the series. Kay Hooper is a fantabulous author, and one I'm excited to read more from.

  • Stealing Shadows is the first book in Kay Hooper’s Bishop/Special Crimes Unit. I thought I read this book before, however, looking at my bookshelf, I read one of the later books in the series. I didn’t realize it was a series at the time. I have several of Hooper’s standalone books and love her writing.

    Cassie Neal is a woman with a special gift. A gift she attempts to put to rest when she moves to a small town in North Carolina after inheriting her aunt’s house. Cassie’s can get into the head of murderers. She has a history of working with the police to find the villain. Unfortunately, there are times when she doesn’t get it right before the killer strikes again.

    That is what happened to Cassie in California. She misreads the killer. Escape is her solution. What criminal will move to a small town where everyone knows everyone else? Before long Cassie has a vision. She tries to warn the Sherriff who calks her up as a kook. Not to be deterred Cassie goes to plead her case to Ben Ryan the towns district attorney. Ben is the town’s hot, sexy, unattainable heartthrob. He also believes Cassie.

    What I like best about this mystery is Cassie’s gift. Her ability to see the killer’s thoughts and through his eyes build tension and anxiety. The author makes me nervous. Who is going to die next? Will the police get there in time? Is there more than one killer? It is hard to know who to trust. There are a couple times that I questioned the main characters.

    What doesn’t play out as nicely is the relationship between Cassie and Ben. They start out as friends. Cassie needs a friend and confidant. Ben has some issues that keep him from staying in a relationship for too long. For me, the friendship turned to more before I could believe it. I want to understand Ben more. His reasons for being non-committal in the past seem more like excuses for jumping from one woman to the next. I like him though I never feel like I know him.

    My favorite character is the sheriff, Matt Dunbar. There is something about his protective nature that touches me. He has the right amount of skepticism to not trust Cassie, but willing to do whatever is necessary to serve his community. His love story is more realistic to me.
    Hooper takes more than half of the book to introduce Bishop. A novel technique since it is Bishop’s series. What I like about the way Bishop’s storyline is developed is that I have so many questions about him, but I don’t feel cheated or like the story is incomplete. I need to read the next book in the series to try to figure this man out. The ESP aspect of the story is handled believably which makes the story more enjoyable. It isn’t necessary to give an eye-roll at all. Bishop has some extrasensory skills that’s for sure. He is also looking for something. We don’t know what that is and I’m looking forward to finding out as I get into the series.

  • I really enjoy this author's Bishop Special Crimes series. They are suspenseful, and the characters are interesting. But this was about as boring and predictable as they come. The description hints at a psychic in danger. Don't be fooled. There's no danger here unless you consider the danger of being bored to death a risk. And the psychic part, while supposedly central to the character, is not fleshed out at all. If you want lighthearted romance that holds no surprises and always has a happy ending, you'll probably enjoy this. For anyone seeking a little suspense and complexity, pass on this one. Trust me, you'll be all the better for it.
