In a few words: good mystery

It's been a long while since I picked up a Heather Graham book. Not because I grew tired of the author, but because so many new authors have captured my attention in the last few years. But feeling a bit nostalgic recently I ransacked my TBR pile and pulled out "The Vision" by Heather Graham then curled up on the sofa with my comforter and a hot cup of tea while the snow and sleet did their damage outside. What I really enjoy about Graham's mystery/crime/romance books
One word for this book : creepy! *at least for the first parts ^-^ Honestly, I got the creeps for only reading the first few chapters

Anyway, I thought I got the killer but ouch! I pick the wrong guy! I just wondered, am I losing my deduction touch? *as if I'm Sherlock Holmes himself (*rolling eyes, LOL)

Overall, this is an enjoyable book, providing you're into creepy kind of story which gives you goosebumps :)
THIS IS NOT REALLY A HARRISON INVESTIGATION BOOK!!! Yes Adam Harrison and Nikki & Brent Blackhawk make an appearance but it is no different then The Killing Edge... They are just back ground people who come to Key West to help out at the request of a friend.

That being said..
The funny thing about Graham & her ghost stories are they all follow the same flow, yet I never seem to know exactly who did it and this is book is no different. Yes I usually can narrow it down but so far I have on

I recently started reading Graham's novels again and I find myself being somewhat perplexed.

I used to love this author's work but now, after merely two books, I find myself speed-reading through them and going "meh".

The mysteries are good, the paranormal aspect alright... the romance, not so much.

I mean, the way Thor acted in a good portion of the story made me actually want to scream! I don't care how much of an Adonis he is, I wouldn't have touched him with a 10' pole by how macho he was, how

Two professional diving teams are working together on a Government financed expedition to find the remains of a Spanish ship carrying a fortune in gold, in the beautiful Ocean near Key West. Genevieve Wallace is one of them, she is a great diver, and knows her way in these waters as she grew up here. But while searching for debris from the ancient ship, she suddenly sees a dead woman in the water, anchored to some rock, and when the dead woman tries to communicate with her, she completely loses ...more

The book starts with a prologue about a ghost appearing to Genevieve “Gen” Wallace during a treasure hunting dive off the coast of Key West and warning her to “beware.” That’s the best part of the book—it’s downhill from there. Gen belongs to a group of treasure divers who have joined with another group following clues to the location of the Marie Josephine, which sank around 1820, supposedly loaded with gold. Graham does a very good job handling the dialog and interactions of the members of the ...more

This was a great book. Kept me turning pages and not wanting to do anything else but read! Heather Graham's ghost stories are some of my favorites of all of her works.

After my confusion, I realized I was having a blonde moment. Liked this one, a little creepier than previous ones in the series...on to #5.

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

I loved this book. It was about an old ship that sunk and was scattered all over the ocean floor in Key West, Fl. Two dive teams are trying to locate the old Spanish ship when Genevieve Wallace sees a woman's body close to where they are to be looking for the ship. She races to the surface to notify the others. The police dive team are brought in to retrieve the body, but there was no body down in the water. Then the dreams start and Gen wakes up soaking wet with seaweed in her hair. She is ques ...more
While at the beginning I wasn't too sure I would like Thor -- he was too arrogant and jerky -- and then I wasn't too sure about Gen -- can you say prickly? -- I ended up liking them and their story all the same. Actually the plot and mystery is what really kept me reading. I liked that it was harder to figure out whodunnit than the others in this series, but I did have it narrowed down to two suspects and ended up picking the right one (go me!). Although I'm still not sure exactly why they did i ...more
I read this book because I promised it to someone on the wish list forum on bookcrossing. I was really shocked to see that someone had sent it to me in 2008! Although it is not noted on my reading list for that year, I think I did read it at some point, but just now reread it before sending it on. Not a bad mystery, hard to figure out who was the bad guy, and what the ghost was trying to help with.
This is the second book I've read by this author and I'm hooked! The first was Waking the Dead. That was good, but this one was much better. More of a mystery mixed with a ghost story. Kept me guessing who-dun-it until the end of the book...and that's saying a lot since I usually figure things like that out in books and movies very quickly...much to the irritation and chagrin of my friends! ; )
I liked it. I thought the characters were genuine, and I loved Gen's attitude. I found that Heather Graham could have used more technical aspects as far as the diving was concerned, but it was all right - it just could have used more explanation on the diving and equipment. (I had read The Reef by Nora Roberts, so I guess I was spoiled when it comes to this subject!)

The inner battles as well as the physical were a perfect blend, and I didn't know who it was until the end. So many characters to c
A little darker, through out, than most Heather Graham's books. I enjoyed the read and gave it a five just because she was so consistent with this one. Bravo Ms. Graham, I feel like one of the Fashion Police awarding you for getting it right.
Probably my favorite by Heather Graham so far. I love her Deep South stuff, but this one felt different. Still in the south, but set in a place surrounded by Palm trees and clear water. I loved the treasure hunting aspect and the romance wasn't in your face and unbelievable like some of her others.
I am a sucker for any story about Key West, Florida ..and no story about Key West would be complete be without ghosts! This book is a quick read for anyone interested in Key West ghosts, but also describes the lives of those who search for shipwrecks and the real work it takes to locate them: historical research, a reviw of letters and maps from the time, ship manifests, weather, etc. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of the boats, fishing, the process of preparing for any dive, and the unsp ...more

I started this book because it was just the next book in the Harrison Investigations Series. I didn't really think it would be all that good and I waan't all that excited about it at first; but like nearly all of Heather Graham's books I quickly got into the story line. It was way better than I was expecting from reading the back cover. Once I started reading it, I simply couldn't put it down and felt as though I had to read at least a few pages before I went to sleep at night. I finished it ton ...more
Loved the writing style. The story started off great - got right to the story (which I loved). Kept me reading cover to cover. Without giving the story away I can say it did keep me guessing (physical or ghostly). I thought the characters jumping to conclusion (one person dead, blond, prostitute and female) and they felt it was a serial killer. Loved it over all till the end, was a little disappointed HOWEVER I do love it and love to find new authors (to me that is). I will be reading her other ...more
Another fantastic mystery. Reading through this book and putting the pieces together was interesting. There were several times I thought I had it complete and then I realized there was something new to add. I love the main female.character Genevieve. She was strong in so many ways. She had a belief and followed through even when everyone else including long time friends thought she was crazy. I also enjoyed the paranormal aspect of it. I think there is more to life than we realize and this book ...more
I just love ghost stories!

Key West has got to be one of the most beautiful places I've seen and to know that it is tainted by not only a serial killer but also "ghosts" is a bit hard to come to grips with. A very well written book although a little week on plot. The cast of characters for the most part, all grew up together and it's almost like high school buddies hanging together instead of adults who make their living diving. Will try one more by the author and hope for a little stronger plot.
Although Graham still relies a bit too much on cliches (her characters did a lot of teeth grinding -- I hope they all wear nightguards) and strangely always includes a scene of group grocery-purchasing and unloading for a cookout, her writing is much better here than in other books I've read. The plot thickened and then unfolded in the proper thriller manner, and her knowledge of Key West makes her books super-fun for the Conch Republic fan.
The story is about diving around the Florida coast for sunken treasure.
Genevieve sees a vision of a dead woman in the water. The woman is actually a ghost of a woman who lived during the 1500's.
The question is--do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe that ghosts can help us in our lives today?
This was my first read by Heather Graham. I would read another of her books to decide if I like her style of writing.

This is the 3rd book I have read by this author and it has renewed my faith in Heather Graham. The first book I read was good, but then I read the Island which wasn't that great. In a way I felt like this book was similar to The Island, but it held my attention a lot better. I also appreciated that it kept me guessing as to who the killer was. I would read another one of the Harrison Investigation books.
As always Heather Graham never disappoints me. The story was a great read. This author has a great way of making you laugh out loud even though what is happening at that moment really isn't very funny. Her way of having characters communicate with each other at times during the story is just so amusing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great murder mystery.
I am never disappointed!
This was an enjoyable little ghost story, set in the blue-green waters of the Florida Keys. I always enjoy Graham's tales; while they aren't the 'greatest literary works of all time', they certainly are fast paced, tightly plotted and wonderfully suspensful. (I like that she includes bits of history about the places in which she sets her paranormal plots, as well...)
With ghosts straight out of "Pirates of the Caribbean" and a hero named Thor (nickname the Thunder God), you'd be forgiven to dismiss this book altogether. However, it was actually quite an enjoyable suspenseful read about a female salvage diver and her ghostly encounters. When real dead female bodies started floating up onto Key West's beach, things started getting......

Recommends it for: Heather Graham fans and mystery lovers
Recommended to Amy by: no one. it was in my HUGE to be read pile
*Shiver* This book was pretty creepy. The book was pretty good, however and I liked that Gen was like the prophet Cassandra and how she was disbelieved at first. The mystery angle was pretty good too, and I had trouble figuring out who the killer was (had trouble deciding between two of the guys.) Eventually, I figured out who it was just before the ending.
