THE TRUTH IS SCARIER THAN FICTION

Kerri Wolf has joined the crew of The Seekers, a show that searches for paranormal phenomena, as they explore a supposedly haunted old inn on the road between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. The place is famous for its warm welcome—and infamous for being the site of an ax murder rampage in the 1920s. They’ve barely begun when a very real dead body is discovered in the basement. As a nonfiction author, Kerri is supposed to be the rational one, but she can’t explain a terrifying apparition that seems to be both a threat and a warning.

Former detective Joe Dunhill knows what she’s going through—the strange gift of being able to see and talk to the dead is a struggle he shares. A new member of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, he’s on the team investigating the disturbing death. The town is steeped in old-fashioned superstition, and the deeper Joe and Kerri plunge into the dark secrets of the inn, the closer they get to a devastating truth. Will a bloody history be repeated? Or can the spirits of the past reach out to stop a killer?

The Seekers by Heather Graham is part of the Krewe of Hunters series but its the first one I have read and I wasn’t confused at all. Basically, there is a group of FBI agents who can see ghosts and they are called out to crime scenes where paranormal activity is suspected.

Keri, our heroine, is a historical nonfiction author who writes about crime. She is well respected and gives a great deal of attention to the research to make her books accurate from all angles. She is called in to work with a team of ghost hunters from a paranormal web show. She doesn’t believe in ghosts, but being there gives her access to a very tragic historical site that wants to write about. Needless to say, there are ghosts. When a real person gets murdered while Keri and the “Truth Seekers” are in the house, the FBI Krewe of Hunters sends new recruit Joe.

The murder mystery is really well done! An FBI agent is murdered in a brutal, ritualistic fashion in a house known for a horrific 1926 crime of torture and murder. But, it’s not that simple of course. How did an FBI agent looking for a kidnapped girl end up in this house in the middle of nowhere? Why her? Who could have killed her and staged such a gruesome scene when there was a team of people in house? The plot is winding and fascinating for sure. I love true crime books-they are my jam for sure. So, The Seekers appealed to me right away for that aspect; however, this story is really well written. Heather Graham can tell a fabulous story with well developed plot lines. The romance is certainly secondary and that worked well for this story. Joe and Keri were well developed as far as their personas but not so much as a ‘couple’.  Overall, The Seekers was a great murder mystery story with a touch of romance thrown in for good measure and I really enjoyed it!

    • Yes this was really interesting! There are no shortage of suspects which I think made it even more interesting because you are sure its one person for a chapter, then sure its someone else. I really liked it!
