Wait for Dark, by Kay Hooper

(Bishop/Special Crimes Unit #17)


Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now March 7, 2017,   Thrillers - Supernatural


I read the first book in this suspense series, Stealing Shadows ages ago. I quickly followed it with Hiding in the Shadows and Out of the Shadows. I can’t believe this is #17 in this wonderful series. When I recommend this series I always recommend the first in the series and usually the customer buys the first three, and they are hooked. (like me) Unusual crimes normally require the help of the Special Crimes Unit, a group of FBI talented paranormal specialists. In this case, four fatal unusual accidents in a small town bring on the SCU special agents. And as usual Ms. Hooper catches you with the first sentence and doesn’t let up until the end of the book. Looking forward to #18

— Della McNamara


An SCU team investigates a string of accidents, only to uncover a deadly and deliberate monster in this novel from New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper. 

In Clarity, North Carolina, the residents have fallen victim to an unfortunate series of events. Seemingly random accidents have taken the lives of several citizens in the small mountain town. But these deadly coincidences are anything but. Something is on the hunt in Clarity, and the only clue is a cryptic note given to the victims 24 hours before they meet their ends: “Wait for dark.” 

Sheriff Mal Gordon knows how to handle his town, but he has no idea how to handle this. Hollis Templeton and her team from the Special Crimes Unit—including her partner and lover, telepath Reese DeMarco—are called in to investigate.  

But while the SCU has prepared them for the unknown, the incredible evil stalking Clarity shakes the team to its core when one of their own is targeted. Now Hollis, the “cat with nine lives,” finds herself facing death again. 

And this time, not even her partner can protect her…
