The Evil Inside (Krewe of Hunters #4) by Heather Graham was an “on the edge of your seat” thriller. On his way back to his hometown of Salem Massachusetts, Attorney Sam Hill sees a young boy run into the street covered in blood and clearly in shock. He calls his longtime friend and sheriff John Alden to the scene. Come to find out, the boy is Malachi Smith who lives in Lexington House. Lexington House has been a legend in Salem where many have been murdered since the 1600’s. Unfortunately, this ...more

This is another Heather Graham novel that does not disappoint. I know this is a series, I have not read it in order & don't really have to. I've always been intriqued with the Salem Witch Trials and this book takes place in Salem, Mass & the paranormal forensic team is investigating a house that has had many murders in the past & trying to figure out what happens to the owners. Very intriquing, suspensful with a little romance thrown in.

Well wow this grabbed me by the short and curly's and kept me totally in it's grip to the very last page. Like all the books in this series it is knee deep in history and actual historic events, I am not a fan of historical fiction but this kept me interested and I loved how correlation was drawn with the events happening in the story. I guessed who did it but I was still surprised by the reveal and what a reveal it was. The love element was light and was kept just on the right side of warm but ...more
I have already read some paranormal romantic suspenses by Heather Graham. Some were better, some were worse. This one was a better one.

I enjoyed the characters, there are likeable. Even though I would like to be more relationship building between Jenna and Sam, it was okay.

The suspense part wasn't really surprising or innovative but still it grab my attention. However, some answers were obvious to me from the beginning.

I would give it 3.5 star. It's a good read for those who are looking for som

This book is set in Salem, MA, around Halloween, making it a perfect October read, in my opinion. Jenna Duffy is a member of the Krewe of Hunters, an FBI group made up of people with a little bit different skills- they can see ghosts. Jenna returns home to Salem at the request of her Uncle Jamie, a twee little Irishman, who can spin a good ghost story. He is also respected psychiatrist in the community, and when one of his patients, a teenager named Malachi, is accused of a murder Jamie doesn't ...more

Heather Graham's newest installment in the Krewe of Hunters still has me hooked! I love the way the series combines elements of both supernatural and ordinary ordinary happenings. She weaves them together so seamlessly.

The Evil Inside delves into the horrific past of Salem, Massachusetts, the famous witch trials and other horrific crimes that took place there. Sam has traveled to his childhood town for a bit of rest and relaxation after successfully winning a hard-fought trial in Boston, but wha

This story deals with perceived slight and mass-induced accusations just for being different. Thankfully, there is usually at least one person out there standing up to bullies and determined to find out the truth, no matter what.
This adventures is based in Salem - where else could it be? - and while not really involving witches, there have been some horrendous murders over the past six months. The culprit appears obvious - a seemingly troubled young man, found in the middle of the road, naked, c

The Lexington House has a bad history of murder, and now it has happened again. Is the house evil or did Malachi really kill his family. The boy is seen with blood all over him and he is automatically the killer. Jaime doesn’t believe he did it so he calls his niece Jenna who is a member of the Krewe of Hunters.

I just finished the fourth book in Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters series -- The Evil Inside. I loved it from the very beginning just for the simple fact that I love Graham, I love the Krewe, and I knew that this one was set in Salem, Massachusetts right before Halloween. I also knew, however, basically what to expect: All of the norms are there -- the mystery that may or may not be linked to something not-quite-of-this-world, a Krewe member, a skeptical (for now) "other" that you just know wi ...more

Offensive. I have no other word for this book. As a human being committed to social justice including woman’s rights, I find the direction Graham takes Jenna Duffy disturbing on a fundamental level. Jenna is supposed to be a trained FBI special agent and a RN; one would think this comes with a confidence and awareness of who she is, but no. Jenna is reduced to a badly stereotypical woman who is a slave to the leading man (Sam) in the book. These two characters dislike each other through the firs ...more

Rated 4.5 "Horned Devil" Stars

This is Jenn's story, the Irish RN and FBI team member from The Krewe of Hunters. She meets & falls for Sam, a defense attorney.

The book took place in Salem, Massachusetts. It's the home of the famous "Salem Witch Trials". You get a history lesson to boot if you don't know anything about them.

I visited Salem, as a child of ten, and was completely fascinated with it all. That actually started my love for reading paranormal mysteries - ghosts, witches, haunted ho
First time reading this author. I enjoyed the setting of the story, being the time of year it is. The storyline was a bit predictable. You knew who was going to fall for who. The "who done it" became clear about 3/4 of the way through if you put all the pieces together. It, still, was a relaxing read and good story of "who done it".

And again... so much to like about these characters and this series! I just wish the author wasn't so patterned in her approach to the story. While the details of the mystery and the ghosts are fresh, the pattern makes the books feel too familiar and trite, which takes away the fun and overall enjoyment.

I'm a sucker for a good romance. But why must each book feature a member of the Krewe falling in love? It would be nice to focus on the mystery more and the romance a bit less - or keep it betwee

Wow! A really great book - I could barely put it down. I really like this series and want to read more of it (Krewe of Hunters) This book takes place in Salem, which is interesting all in itself. The author seamlessly weaves the history of the town into the modern plot, making it quite fascinating. My only complaint about Heather Graham's books is that they are very poorly edited. Every one that I've read so far has more type-o's than I encounter in any other book - very odd. Think her editing t ...more
I ended up putting off this review for a lot of reasons.

First of all, I really didn’t know what to say about The Evil Inside. It was easier to get into than Sacred Evil, that’s for sure. Using the Salem Witch Trials as a springboard for a paranormal murder mystery gives the premise all sorts of potential. And somehow, Sam Hall was a more readily likable main male character than the other guy--unfortunately, he also doesn’t stray far from the whole “Be an ass ‘cause of reasons” schtick.

It seems that my tolerance for formula is exactly 3 books deep. This one follows the same formula as the first three books in the series. Team member (in this case, Jenna the Irish Nurse/medium) meets love of their life and proceeds over the course of a week or two to fall solidly in love while overcoming the tiniest possible amount of doubt about their abilities and getting led around by well meaning ghosts.
I love ghost stories. However these are starting to read like exactly the same story wit

Book four in the Krewe of Hunters miniseries more than lived up to my expectations for this fantastic series. I was thrilled to see that the setting for this book was Salem, MA especially as deep into history as this author tends to get. She did not disappoint this time either. I enjoyed the old Salem history we all know, nicely meshed with newer legends and events from the author’s imagination. The characters in the town were as complex and intermixed as the real p

The Evil Inside takes a slightly different path in this series by not bringing together the entire Krewe of Hunters to work on a case. Jenna Duffy heads to Salem, Massachusetts, her Uncle Jamie’s hometown, per his request. Jamie, a child psychologist, is determined to prove the innocence of one of his former clients who is charged with murdering his parents. To help him further in his quest, Jamie ropes in a hometown, hotshot lawyer, Sam Hill, to defend young Malachi Smith.

After enjoying the previous book, Sacred Evil, I had hopes for the series but unfortunately Graham has regressed and The Evil Inside continues in the same mediocre vein as the first two installments.

The book is in serious need of editing as the numerous grammatical and spelling errors, and repeated sentence structures detract from the overall reading experience.

The historical background on Salem and the Witch Trials is fascinating but too much emphasis is placed on politi

I found this title on Net Galley and was selected to read it and am so glad I did.

"The scariest unknown in the world is the human mind."~ Jenna, from The Evil Inside

I enjoy this series and the biggest draw in each book, aside from the ghostly elements, is the case being investigated. Right from the start I was absorbed with the details of this mass murder because the haunting of Lexington House reminded me of Amityville, and the axe murders were reminded me of Lizzy Borden. I never really figured that it would be the obvious choice, it never is with the Krewe, but I was shock

The Evil Inside by Heather Graham
The Evil Inside is a 4th in the Krew novels. I have not read any of the ones before, but I have read one after where he sets up another unit. I do feel that I have missed some about how the group worked together previous. But does do well standing on its own. I would like to read them all some day.
The story takes place in Salem, Massachusetts. It has a lot of the Salem Witch trials ref. in it. Even some of their ghosts.
