The Silenced by Heather Graham (Krewe of Hunters #15)

Where is Lara Mayhew?

Lara, a congressman's media assistant, suddenly quits her job—and disappears on the way to her Washington, DC, apartment.

Novice FBI agent Meg Murray, a childhood friend of Lara's, gets a message from her that same night, a message that says she's disillusioned and "going home." To Richmond, Virginia. Meg discovers that she never got there. And bodies fitting Lara's description are showing up in nearby rivers… Could she be the victim of a serial killer?

Meg is assigned to work with special agent Matt Bosworth, a hard-nosed pro in the FBI's unit of paranormal investigators—the Krewe of Hunters. They trace the route Meg and Lara took more than once in the past, visiting battlefields and graveyards from Harpers Ferry to Gettysburg. Places where the dead share their secrets with those who can hear… As Meg and Matt pursue the possibility of a serial killer, they find themselves in the middle of a political conspiracy. Is there a connection? If so, has Lara been silenced for good? And whom—besides each other—can they trust?

My review: The Silenced by Heather Graham (Krewe of Hunters #15)


Good suspense! Good mystery! Good history! Familiar characters and new ones too.  There is a few love scenes.

Meg Murray has just graduated from the FBI training.  When she listens to her phone messages she has a strange message from her best friend Lara.  Lara  is a congressman's media assistant called Meg at 2:00AM that she has to leave town and go back home.  Lara never made it.

Meg knows that something is not right.  She watches the news and hears about a serial killer.  Whose two victims describe Lara.  Meg sees ghosts.  She wants to be a Krewe sometime but knows they are asked to join you can't just apply to that group.  Years ago she met Adam Harrison and he listened to her and gave her a number to call if she needs it. Now she does.

Matt Bosworth is point on the new case of two woman's murder. Matt is a member of the Krewes. He has been a FBI Agent for ten years. He does not know if Lara fits in the case or not.

Adam has Matt and Meg working together to follow up on Lara's missing case.  Meg feels that her friend is dead when she saw her asking for help.  Matt does not believe that Lara has to be dead.

The setting is Washington D.C. , Richmond, VA, Harper's Ferry and Gettysburg.  Lots of ghosts.

I enjoy Heather Graham's stories. 

I was given this ebook by Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Silenced.
