The details of the crime scene are no coincidence. The body - a promising starlet - has been battered, bloodied and then discarded between two of Manhattan's oldest graveyards. One look and Detective Jude Crosby recognizes the tableau: a re-creation of Jack the Ripper's gruesome work. But he also sees something beyond the actions of a mere copycat. Something more dangerous...and unexplainable. As the city seethes with suspicion, Jude calls on Whitney Tremont, a member of the country's preeminent paranormal investigating team, to put the speculation to rest. Yet when Whitney and Jude delve deeper, what they discover is more shocking than either could have predicted, and twice as sinister....

A short review to update challenges
Sacred Evil has a change of setting to New York City. There are a series of murders which seem to be copying Jack the Ripper. There is also a movie being filmed which has some connection to this history. The lead detective is Jude. Whitney is sent ahead from the team, as she went to film school at NYU, so she has a double base of knowledge in the area and in film. So begins the romance of Jude and Whitney.
As usual there is the great layers of mystery and law enforcement, with romance and the added history of the paranormal background. Also typical, is the new person being exposed to the team, in this case, Jude, is not initially accepting of the paranormal aspects.
Sacred Evil was a better plot with interesting history and several twists and turns. The romance was a bit insta-love but I always find it more authentic in a suspenseful situation where emotions are high. I really liked this one and the sexy times were HOT.
I was able to get Phantom Evil, the first book of this Krewe Of Hunters series from the Audible Romance package. Heart of Evil and Sacred Evil were available with audio through Kindle Unlimited. The next one, The Evil Inside is not in either program so I requested an MP3 CD through Interlibrary Loan. We will see how that goes.
Luke Daniels is now the voice of the series. He is one reason I chose to start this series. I am able to listen at 1.5x speed. He performed all the voices of males and females well. The various accents sounded right to me.
