The Unholy by Heather Graham is the newest addition to The Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham. The Krewe of Hunters centers around a group of FBI agents who specialize in “unusual” crimes, unusual meaning paranormal in nature. Each of the Krewe has some ability, in this case that of seeing and talking to ghosts.

Sean Cameron started his career as a special effects artist with Archer Studios in Hollywood. After moving back home to Texas to take care of his old girlfriend who is dying, he joins the FBI. When a grisly murder occurs at his old studio and Eddie Archer’s son is accused, Eddie Archer calls on Sean to help. Eddie also knows who can help him, Madison Darvil, who can also see ghosts. In fact she has ghost living in her house, that of Humphrey Bogart!

The Unholy is a clever mixture of old and new Hollywood legend and lore. The present day murder duplicates a scene in a noir classic and could only be the work of a studio insider with an ax to grind with Archer Studios. Madison and Sean are being stalked by a killer who becomes more clearly deranged with each passing day.

The Unholy is very spooky and escalates the suspense to a high level. The mystery is convoluted and takes precedence over the romance in this entry in the series. The Unholy is a well-plotted read, peopled with fully fleshed out charcters.
