    When you have FBI psychics scattered all over the place, it is no wonder that this series is about recruiting other psychics. Even though the writer seems to be fixed on small towns, there is no shortage of psychic phenomenon going on in each murder. Agent Bishop is head honcho, lead psychic and he is married to none other than his one true love, Miranda, who is also psychic. In the small town of Silence, undercover 'psychic' FBI agents try to solve the brutal murders of 3 men, who held secrets. Heinous secrets. I suppose this series is starting to grow on me but I sure wish I could find something more along the lines of Harry Bosch. I think I'll settle for Agent Bishop because he's about as close as I'm going to get to my 'Bull in a China Shop' Harry, not to mention the murders are incredibly complex, and brilliant in these novels. I like this author, she is very creative with her stories.

    So Close to Being So GoodThe Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series is a paranormal suspense series that includes romances but at times drifts between wanting to focus on the romance and then pulling back, wanting to focus on the crime mystery but then pulls back. At times the books feel like there is a deep struggle for what the focus of the book is. THE STORY: Nell Gallagher returns to her hometown after the death of her father to settle the estate. It is not a good time to be in town because there have been four murders of prominent men who appear to have been killed because of secrets they possessed. It is quickly revealed that Nell actually works for the SCU and is in town undercover to help solve the murder. Her paranormal talent is that she can see scenes in locations that happened in the past and sometimes in the future. Her talent, however, makes her vulnerable because it takes a lot of energy. Returning has been difficult for Nell especially because of the presence of the man she left behind.Max Tanner was in love with Nell as a young man and was puzzled and devastated when she abandoned him and left town. Now that she has returned, he has questions that he wants answered. But more than anything, he wants to protect Nell from the evil that is in town.OPINION: This book was so close to be a great read. The relationship between Nell and Max was great. I liked the angst between them and how they find their way together again. I was intrigued by such a close psychic relationship between a non-talent and a talent. Unfortunately, the trouble in the relationship is really about Nell keeping secret information about their pasts. For much of the book, the question is what happened to make Nell leave. By the time the information is revealed, I just didn't feel that disclosure satisfied the buildup. I was disappointed because I really liked the couple and wished that the book had embraced their relationship more.The story of the murders was interesting, but there was no way that a reader could have guessed the identity of the murderer. At the same time, the story was very creepy and the investigation stretched Nell's abilities and I wanted to know the solution.I did like the book, I just felt that it could have been great rather than just good.WORTH MENTIONING: I loved the cameo appearance of Bishop and Miranda. Their appearance makes every book better.FINAL DECISION: I have more mixed feelings about this book than my final decision. I would read this book again even though I was somewhat disappointed it. Nell and Max are one of my favorite couples of the series even though I wish there was more about their relationship development in this book. CONNECTED BOOKS: This book is the fifth book in the Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series. It can be read independent of the other books in the series although there are some overlapping characters.STAR RATING: I give this book a solid 4 stars.

    A plot full of twists and turns, just when you think you have figured out who the killer is another possibility is tossed in front of you. The 5th book in a paranormal FBI group series that is interesting and suspenseful. You absolutely don't have to read the series in order as any of these could be read as a stand alone. However, you would be missing out on subtle nuances that allow the steady flow of characters to develop and flesh out further for you.

    This is the first book I read by Kay Hooper and it shurely won't be the last. It was a real page-turner for me. The plot is complex ,every character has a secret and maybe there are too many story lines but it was ok with me. The book has so many unexpected twists and turns that readers won't be able to predict what happens next. Can't wait to read another book by this author.

    Whisper of Evil3 StarsA good premise but the poor character development and weak investigative process make this a mediocre addition to the series. The pacing is off as the buildup toward the climax is drawn out and tedious while the denouement is too rapid and anti-climactic. The romance reads like an afterthought. While Max and Nell have the potential for some sizzling chemistry, their past relationship is revealed in dribs and drabs, which makes it difficult for the reader to care about them one way or the other. In fact, the secondary romance between Shelby and Justin is far more engaging. In terms of the serial killer plot, other than the profile indicating that the killer is a cop (this is revealed at the outset so its not a spoiler), there are absolutely NO clues as to his or her identity because the secondary cast is not fleshed out AT ALL. Moreover, the psychic elements contribute very little to the investigation and the twist is predictable. Overall, not up to Hooper's standards.

    This was fine. It was solid fare of the same flavor of the previous books. I think that my mini-gorge of the first five books in the series will be enough for now. These books, while enjoyable for fluff reading are formulaic, because, although previous characters always make cameos, it always features a new psychic woman, and she always gets back together with her first love, who is a "protector" male. Eh. I think I would enjoy this series astronomically better if it weren't so focused on the same, not developed love story that ends at happily-ever-after (this time around, because it has to be second-chance to suit the 30-something main character and readership), was more about the core Special Crimes Unit members.

    Another paranormal murder mystery by Kay Hooper. I enjoy books with twists and this has a few that pop up at the end. My only complaint with Hooper's mysteries is that the bad guy tends to be someone who there is no way you could have seen that person being the murderer. It tends to be some non-descript character who is mentioned a few times in a meaningless manner. So to those who say "I didn't see that one coming" I respond "Who could have?"Nevertheless her mysteries are fun quick reads that you will enjoy. I have enjoyed the SCU FBI books. Bishop and Miranda make small appearences.

    I never felt involved with the story nor with any of the characters. I really dislike writting style that has too many threads and introduce characters that have no real input to the story. I want well developed, strong and likeable main characters, good dialogue and interestingly plotted storyline. Something like e.g Dream Man by Linda Howard.

    I love how I can never figure out who the killer is. I can always figure it out usually about halfway into a book but I have never been able to figure out who the killers are in any of these books and I love it

    This book would make a spooky movie. It has all of the thngs that would make an audience be swept up in the horror of the plot. It is the story of a young woman who returns to her home town of Silence to handle the estate of her father. She arrives in town after 4 men have been murdered, all who have dark secrets. When she left 12 years earlier she escaped severing all ties, saying good bye to no one, not even the young man who loved her.Nell Gallagher returns to her fathers house and begins to face some of the deep secrets she had buried years ago. Nell has some psychic abilities, which she always had found frightening, that had kept her quite removed from those around her...and they will likely put her life at risk as she digs deeper into her past.The one weakness this book has is that the author feels compelled to keep offering up explanations about the paranormal, and different 'gifts' people have who experience it. These constant attempts to try to convince the reader that the paranormal exists are very distracting....which is why I rated this book a three, even though the plot line and characters should have merited a four start rating. A good fast read.

    This one was a bit...less. I liked the connection she had to her hometown, but there were SO MANY characters you had to keep track of that it got confusing. Some were just in passing and they didn't need a full name, let alone a full page of what they were wearing.However, it did have a good twist, it read quickly and I enjoyed it.

    I must say that this was the most twisted book thus far. loved the fact that just when you think you may have it figured out it is not exactly what you thought.I think the only that irks me is that I had that lingering question about her mom. I really want to know where she is?such a devious mind and I love it. off to read the next book.

    THIS SUMMARY/REVIEW WAS COPIED FROM OTHER SOURCES AND IS USED ONLY AS A REMINDER OF WHAT THE BOOK WAS ABOUT FOR MY PERSONAL INTEREST. ANY PERSONAL NOTATIONS ARE FOR MY RECOLLECTION ONLY3.5 THE STORY: Nell Gallagher returns to her hometown after the death of her father to settle the estate. It is not a good time to be in town because there have been four murders of prominent men who appear to have been killed because of secrets they possessed. It is quickly revealed that Nell actually works for the SCU and is in town undercover to help solve the murder.

The relationship between Nell and Max was great. I liked the angst between them and how they find their way together again. I was intrigued by such a close psychic relationship between a non-talent and a talent. Unfortunately, the trouble in the relationship is really about Nell keeping secret information about their pasts. For much of the book, the question is what happened to make Nell leave. By the time the information is revealed, I just didn't feel that disclosure satisfied the buildup. I was disappointed because I really liked the couple and wished that the book had embraced their relationship more.The story of the murders was interesting, but there was no way that a reader could have guessed the identity of the murderer. At the same time, the story was very creepy and the investigation stretched Nell's abilities and I wanted to know the solution.**********Continuing with Hooper and my current mood for thrillers I decided to pick Whisper of Evil next. We get to know a new FBI agent, Nell Gallagher, who returns to her hometown of Silence after 10 years away. She left one day, without explanations to friends or boyfriend which means that on her return he feels he is entitled to some explanations. Officially she is back to settle her late father's estate, unofficially she is there as an FBI agent to look into some murders of well know citizens who are discovered to have some dark secrets.Nell is a part of Bishop's team, she has what people in Silence called The Gallagher Curse, she can see events and sometimes she can't tell if they happened or are going to happen. After she has one of those visions she usually blacks out for a time. The reason why Nell ran away from home is not obvious in the beginning but something that we discover at the same time that her boyfriend, Max Turner, does. Max is the main suspect for the crimes but all due to circumstantial evidence. When he finds out that Nell returned he can't resist expressing his anger but at the same time he can't stay away from her. This is a story that has many twists and that is probably its main problem. There's the mystery of who the murderer is, of why Nell ran away, of who is her undercover partner and who is the mysterious person who can tap into her life and control her. All this is successfully handled for a while but when they start connecting the dots I found that it didn't deliver as strong a climax as I was waiting for. Still Hooper manages to keep us guessing at the murderer identity till the end, not to mention that she kept me guessing about some other people too. The problem is that in between the twists the book drags a bit. If the previous book was more about the murders, I think we can safely say this one is more about the relationship even if I felt it took too long for Nell to convince Max that it wasn't his fault that she had ran away.***********(view spoiler)[In a bayou town, Silence, men are showing up dead. Nell Gallagher has come home to Silence to take care of her father's estate as she's all that is left, after her sister, Hallie, had been disinherited. Everyone in the small town knows that the Gallaghers are cursed with the Sight, including Nell. What they don't know, including the Sheriff, Ethan, is that Nell is FBI. She and her partner, Galen, have been sent to town to investigate, especially because they think a cop might have something to do with it. Nell ran from this place at seventeen and now twelve years later, she finds her then-boyfriend, Matt, hasn't moved on. The story goes through layer after layer, tying Hallie into the killings and Nell's psychic abilities are starting to push back, her black outs becoming more and more severe. None of them are able to stop the bodies piling up.Overall, it wasn't a bad story. I'm not sure it would have hooked me into the series like the later books did. Some of the character details were limited and repetitive and I guessed part of the twist but the other, well I'm still not convinced was laid out enough to deduce. (hide spoiler)]

    Whisper of Evil is book five in the Bishop/SCU series, but book two in the Evil trilogy by Kay Hooper. Kay takes us on another paranormal journey of romance, suspense, fear, and determination.Summary:It has been twelve long years since seventeen year old Nell Gallagher left her small hometown of Silence behind, and the boy she loved. Nell never knew she'd come back, but her father is long gone now, so she doesn't fear that interaction. She may be home, but it's only temporary. She will settle her family's estate and then strike out alone on the life she's built for herself. Nell isn't expecting this visit home to be pleasant, for a variety of reasons. Firstly, Nell has an unusual ability, what she calls the Galllagher curse, that enables her to tap into an areas energy signature and see what has and/or will happen. With a recent string of murders that uncovers deep dark secrets in town, Nell isn't expecting to get out of town without getting at least a hint of the bigger picture. Secondly, Nell has demons from her past to put to rest once and for all, but it's easier said than done. Lastly and most importantly, Nell has to come face to face with Max Tanner, the boy whose heart she broke so long ago. As Nell gets settled in for her visit, she quickly becomes aware that her ability is the only edge the police may have on a killer who likes to taunt and play mind games. As Nell works against time to fit the jagged puzzled pieces together, she must accept the help of Max and brace for questions she's not positive she wants to answer. But Nell also has a secret. Armed with more knowledge than even the investigating officers, Nell sets out to find a killer that may be closer to her than anyone can guess. With more questions than answers, can Nell handle the the stress of her gift and the pain of confronting the man she wronged so horribly, all while hunting a killer with inside information and abilities of his own?I really loved this story. I was kept guessing throughout the whole book and unaware of the killer until the author revealed it. We also got a lot of twists and turns an unknowns that had us trying to put everyone in their place. I really liked Nell. Her ability was very unique and I think still growing. I can't imagine living her childhood or dealing with the scary visions she saw. My only criticism of her was her lack of empathy when it came to Max. Yes, she showed remorse for all her wrongdoing, but why not at least cut him loose sometime in the past twelve years. It was a bit selfish to me. Max was fantastic. I liked his barely controlled temper and the intensity he directed at Nell. It was sweet and sexy. Supporting cast was magnificent. You never knew or weren't quite sure who you had until the end. It added to the mystery and suspense. Overall a great addition to the series, and definitely one that will have me coming back for more. <3

    The second book in the Evil trilogy, Whisper of Evil isn't quite as good as its predecessor, but still a great story to read. Nell Gallagher goes home to Silence, after running away without a word 12 years previously, to settle her father's estate after his death. When she gets there, the whole town is talking about the murdered men...and the dark secrets they kept whilst alive. So Nell teams up with the man she left behind, Max Tanner, and together they're determined to find the killer. But with Nell's psychic power constantly causing her to blackout, will they be able to find the killer before the killer finds them?I enjoyed how this story progressed as the book went on, with so many secrets coming out, you're kept wondering what's around the next corner, and with the suspicion on everyone in the town, you're constantly looking for clues to who the killer could be. I didn't see the end twist coming at all, although it made sense one it had been revealed and I thought back on what I had read. The psychic visions aspect of it was interesting, it adds a nice touch to the storyline, and the romantic reconnection between Max and Nell softens it, so it's not so harsh. If you enjoy these kinds of books then Kay Hooper's Special Crimes Unit series is a good one for you to try, her books have slight connections, but can be read independently from each other with no problems.

    This is one of the earlier Bishop FBI psychic team (I forget the actual series title). I'm reading them out of order, badly. In a bayou town, Silence, men are showing up dead. Nell Gallagher has come home to Silence to take care of her father's estate as she's all that is left, after her sister, Hallie, had been disinherited. Everyone in the small town knows that the Gallaghers are cursed with the Sight, including Nell. What they don't know, including the Sheriff, Ethan, is that Nell is FBI.

    I always find myself enjoying books from Kay Hooper. I love the mystery and the eerieness that surrounds everyone of her plots. This book was no different. It begins with mystery when Nell moves back to her hometown, the town she mysteriously ran away from many years ago leaving her strange family and the man she loved behind. She comes back on the premise of settling her late father's estate, but there is so much more to the story. Nell, being able to tap into past events, is sent on an assignment as we find out Nell is an FBI agent now assigned to a special unit that all have special abilities. She's there to find out who is murdering men of the town, with hidden secrets that come to light after they have died. As the story progresses, we find out the reason Nell left and many other surprises along the way. Throughout the story nothing is given away until the end. Just when you think you know what will happen, it happens, and it's a big twist even then. I really enjoyed this story. I found myself with a few chapters to go last night but I couldn't stop reading because I just HAD to find out what happened. As usual, Ms. Hooper didn't disappoint.

    This was a surprise, the story was interesting and drew me in kept me hostage till the very last page. With thrillers I usually guess the unsub by the middle of the book but I didn't guess till four pages before the reveal. This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone as the only thing that links them is the team of FBI agents but the focus is on the case not the team so although other team members are mentioned their histories are not important to the plot. The paranormal angle is done with finesse and made to feel real by keeping it within in the realms of possibility, giving the plot the edge of the unknown a little boost it doesn't hurt that the characters are interesting and flawed. I will be reading so many more of this series and soon I have all of them on my E-reader.

    Awesome.. I don't know how she does it but I am so captivated by the stories around each of these characters. How they all still tie in and are the Crime Unit even though they are not always working together. Sense of Evil should be in my mailbox soon then I'll be taking a Hooper hiatus when I finish up the Evil trilogy. That makes the first 2 trilogies done. After accumulating the next trilogy I will start back. I'm moving onto The Prey series by John Sandford which I have all of up to Storm Prey which ironically I read first.. Anywho enough rambling just catching you reading beauties up. Taking a YA break, it started seeming to me that they were all becoming guessable in a sense. Being a huge fan of old Nancy Drew mysteries I'm kicking it up a notch (A ALOT) with the novels by Hooper and Sandford.

    I liked the way the whole psychic abilities thing was explained and demystified through conversations held by characters. I also liked the slow reveal of key characters interlocking pasts. I enjoyed the character focus generally actually. Set in the deliciously interesting town called Silence, it was really about the characters with the mystery slowly reaching out to grab me. In other words I didn't really care about the crime or the killer for a long time.I thought Max's devotion to Nell was a bit ridiculous given their history and excessively romantic. I didn't really care for Max all that much actually. The two or three "killer" point of view sections were unnecessary.The climax was good and unpredictable to me anyway especially the appearance of another person from Nell's past to help her along. A good thriller and worth the effort.

    Who knew there were so many various ways to have paranormal skills? But it sure keeps this author varying the intrigue. I liked this book quite a bit because the main character is flawed, the town of Silence is far from silent, this is the first of the novels where the main character goes home, and home isn't pleasant. Everyone has a past and it us affecting the present in tense-filled and sometimes unpredictable ways. But I may have figured out the ending....which I try not to do. But there is something about this story that has made me guess. I will let you know if I was right....I wasn't!!!!! Just finished it and it did not end like I thought !! In fact, there were 2-3 unexpected twists at the end - and all plausible. Fun read indeed...now off to start the next one.

    WHISPER OF EVIL-Sold-OkayHooper, KayReluctant psychic Nell Gallagher never planned to return home to Silence, especially not to settle the affairs of her father, whom she hated, or to help solve a string of murders that has the local sheriff scratching his head. But before long, she teams up with her old high school flame, Max Tanner, to root out the killer.While the romantic tension between Nell and Max is strong, the book's action is virtually nonexistent. Instead, Hooper fills her story with unwieldy discussions of psychic powers, energy fields and electric brain impulses.another of the FBI psychic investigators - rom/susp

    This book had a rather interesting twist at the end that was completely unexpected. It kept me guessing throughout most of the book. I take an interest anyway in books that discuss the paranormal and psychic abilities, but to add in a twist the way this book did just makes me want to read more. For anyone who enjoys reading about psychic abilities, mysteries, and crime all combined into one novel, this book is highly recommended. I will definitely be getting Kay Hooper's last book in this trilogy.

    Awesome book. I intend to read more of her books. A psychic goes back to her home town under the guise of settling her father's estate. Only she and 2 there with her know her real reason for being there. She is trying to use her gift to help locate the killer who has being killing men in the town . Nell also has to face demons from her own past. I loved this book. It was well written and didn't reveal all the secrets at the beginning. Kept me guessing to the killer and the agent there helping nell.
