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
4.5 Stars... Take a setting like Salem, MA, add in the magic and mystery of Halloween, the history of the Salem Witch Trials, a gruesome murder mystery that spans centuries, and ghostly guides that desire truth and justice and what do you get???... One hell of a story!... I loved going on this adventure with Jenna and Sam to uncover past wrongs and right the present injustices that come from prejudice and fear... I felt completely immersed in the story from the start and didn't want it to end... ...more

This is the first book in this series where Jackson Crow's team is not called in to help the local police. Even Jackson and Angela aren't present until later. Jenna Duffy comes to Salem to visit her uncle who needs her help. A young boy was found covered in blood and wondering naked in the middle of the street. Jenna's uncle believes he is not a murderer, so he manages to convince her and the man who found the boy to investigate. Sam, a famous lawyer, even agrees to defend the boy.

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 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. ...more

Loved the setting of Salem for this story. The play of how people view those different throughout American history was nicely woven into the story as well. We see Jenna as the main focus of this story which is something I find interesting in this series. There is a whole unit but each book focuses on the relationship of one. The buildup and intersections between Sam and Jenna were entertaining and when they finally shared their emotions it was not surprising. Jamie is adorable and I wish I had a ...more

Another good ghost story by Heather Graham! I thought the plot of this one was really good and as always I like the little bit of history thrown in. The main characters were just okay, nothing special. I enjoyed the secondary characters almost a little better I think.

I was able to get Phantom Evil,  the first book of this Krewe Of Hunters series from the Audible Romance package.  Heart of Evil  and Sacred Evil were available with audio through Kindle Unlimited.   The Evil Inside is not in either program so I requested an CDs through Interlibrary Loan.

Salem Massachusetts has seen it’s share of horror and unfortunately it’s not over, the infamously legendary Lexington House is once again a crime scene of grisly proportions and the only surviving member of the family is also the only suspect, but there’s someone who believes in his innocence and decides to bring in the big guns.

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

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.

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

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

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

Are you interested in the history of Salem, Massachusetts, during Halloween? If so, then read The Evil Inside, the fourth book in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham.
For me, the history was the best part of this book. That is the only reason why I give it three stars. Sadly, this series has a lot of errors in it, and there is a lot of mixed up information. I feel that this series needs a twist to spice things up. I am going to continue with the series because of my love of history and
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". ...more

You got one star because Good reads has rate to put out negative star ratings!

Finally finished the worst series on the planet. Save yourself some time and find another series to read. I may never forgive Graham for this abomination she called a series! NEVER!!!

So I have now read quite a few of the books in this series (not always in chronological order), including a couple in audiobook format, and this review really could apply to just about any of the books, as they follow essentially the same formula. Hot, single guy/girl (who may or may not have a paranormal talent) is in some way involved with/witness to a crime meets hot, single guy/girl who is a member of the Krewe of Hunters come to investigate said crime. These characters hate each other on si ...more

About 60% through the book and this was my status: Slow read for me. Romance seems forced and unrealistic. Also, I lived in Salem, MA for 2 years and it wasn’t nearly as “small town” as the author is writing. Creative liberty and all that comes into play, however it’s hard for me to get past as a reader. I’ll finish the book although I’m pretty sure I’ve got it solved already

I finished the book only to confirm my suspicions as to who the murder was. I was partially correct in my guess.

The Evil Inside by Heather Graham is the fourth best suspenseful mystery! Heather Graham has done it again! She created the best thriller with so many plot twists. I enjoyed following a well-known lawyer as he found a teenage boy full naked on the road. He almost ran over the thin boy. He turns the boy over to authorities only to discover that the blood on his body was his family's. The whole family was murdered. Everyone says the boy went unhinged and killed them all...but Samuel has a hard tim ...more

Romantic and Murderous

Two things that seem to always happen so far and these books.
1 the author always makes the women seem weak. the man always seem to be questioning whether they can handle themselves or not even though they are FBI agents. I don't understand this.

2 it seems we have to have this crazy sexual romantic scene. And I'm not saying it's not nice to have a little bit of love in these books but do we have to have so many pages of this love scene? I swear this is my last time complain

I enjoy the Krewe of Hunters series, even though the basic story line is the same. Meaning, in each of the first four books one member of the team is the spotlighted character in the story. The team member get drawn into the mystery, meets the person he/she will partner with to solve the mystery, becomes irritated with the partner because of his/her paranormal abilities, while feeling a strong romantic attraction. I love the locations (New Orleans, Salem) Ms. Graham chooses for each book. Each c ...more

I liked this. The relationship had more build than the last one but man do these relationships move FAST.

I liked the mystery a lot but as someone who has gone to Salem many times the author got some things right and some super wrong. The Peobody Essex museum is said in the book to be a history's an art museum. The funny thing is the museum she's talking about is the Salem Witch's within eyesight of the Peobody Essex. The town is presented more like it is in Hocus Pocus

I'm in the middle of a reread on The Evil Inside. What strikes me most about this book is how completely off Heather Graham's math is throughout the book. When we first meet Sam Hall, in the middle of the road at night, he describes Detective John Alden looking to be around fifty years old. He also says that he and Alden played football together in school. Later, when visiting the high school he claims he had graduated fourteen years before. Eighteen (the age of most graduates) plus fourteen (th ...more
Sam did not really believe in the paranormal and ghosts but when Jenna comes into his life he had to rethink everything. He was at first not at all sure of her abilities, to the point that he was almost rude. But when he saw her work. The doubt starts creeping in. I loved seeing him go from a total skeptic to a full believer.

The story is set in Salem City and The Witch trials was never far. It was refreshing to read about the Witch trials from the mouth of the characters but became more of a hi
