the Betrayed by Heather Graham (Krewe of Hunters)
Sleepy Hollow isn't so sleepy anymore…
One night, New York FBI agent Aiden Mahoney receives a visitor in a dream—an old friend named Richard Highsmith. The very next day he's sent to Sleepy Hollow because Richard's gone missing there.
Maureen—Mo—Deauville now lives in the historic town and works with her dog, Rollo, to search for missing people. She's actually the one to find Richard…or more precisely his head, stuck on a statue of the legendary Headless Horseman.
Mo and Aiden, a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI's unit of paranormal investigators, explore both past and present events to figure out who betrayed Richard, who killed him and now wants to kill them, too. As they work together, they discover that they share an unusual trait—the ability to communicate with the dead. They also share an attraction that's as intense as it is unexpected…if they live long enough to enjoy it!

My review: The Betrayed by Heather Graham
I did not know Sleepy Hollow was a real town. Sleepy Hollow, New York and Washington Irving story is the setting for this book. I would be freaking out if I found a real head on a statue of the headless horseman in Sleepy Hollow. (Probably if I found one anywhere.) Good setting for this book. It is also October in Sleepy Hollow. Lots of creepy graveyards.
The suspense was pretty good. I was leaning toward one of the suspects but others were a surprise. It was scary at times.
Richard Highsmith is a politician who was supposed to be speaking at a fundraiser. He was alone for a few minutes and he disappeared. There was lots of security around. They locked the building down. People thought he would go far in politics.
I liked the characters. Maureen Mo Deauville and her dog Rollo find the head. Mo and Rollo have a great record for finding the people she is searching for. She likes finding live ones best. She also makes greeting cards. She is single. She also lives in a old house with ghosts.
Aiden is a FBI Agent newly assigned to Krewe of Hunters out of New York. He really is not happy to that group. He feels he does not belong with them. He is from the area of Sleepy Hollow. The missing was a friend of his.
Their are plenty of suspects that we learn about.
Learn a lot about the area and the history. Lots of ghosts in this story. It makes a good interesting book. Did not want to put it down till I had finished reading it.
I was given this ebook to read for reviewing. All opinions are mine. Received this from Net Galley and Harlequin.
