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.

Narration:

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.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading. I LOVE books and what they give me. It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way. It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.

    • Well it’s going to take me longer as I’ve just started and there are 24 or 26 books now. I’m curious to see how many will end up in NOLA sine they are really based in VA. They haven’t really spent any time there though.
