Linda I think the spookiest part is when Kat is diving to the Jerry McGuen and looks into the black hole of the gallery.

This is a quite typical book from Heather Graham. Nice but not really innovative.

A professional diver dies in the Lake Michigan during the exploration of a ship carrying valuable artefacts from ancient Egypt. Katya Sokolov and Will Chan are sent to investigate the case. They quickly discover that the situation is more serious than it looks and it involves the precious sarcophagus of an Egyptian sorcerer.

The whole story is quite interesting but if you read some other books

The Unspoken by Heather Graham is the seventh novel in the Krewe of Hunter series. All of these tales can be read as a standalone. Each case has paranormal elements, which require the skills of a special unit of the FBI, known as the Krewe of Hunters. Agents Katya Sokolpv and Will Chan head up a case involving a sunken treasure, a curse and several unexplained deaths. This was a fun, suspenseful read as they worked to find a murderer and stop a mummies curse.

In 1898 the freighter, Jerry McGuen,

I enjoyed this book, I especially liked all the information on Ancient Egypt. It was very interesting and a very exciting story. I liked Kat and I was very happy to see Will back. I had been waiting for him to get his own story :)

My biggest complaint was that there were far too many characters. Not only did you have everyone involved in this story, but they brought in and mentioned a lot of the other Krewe members and I found it confusing at times (and I have been

Good story. Love the Egyptian twist. Somewhat predictable villains. Still a fun read.

My second Krewe of Hunters book after The Unholy, I think The Unspoken is a bit better than its predecessor but not better enough for me to say I like this one way more. The supernatural aspect's better incorporated into the story at least, there are a couple of parts that are fairly creepy, but the story as a whole is really formulaic. I know Heather Graham probably intended for this book to be reminiscent of The Unholy, but for me too much of this sequel just comes off as a rehash of the last book.

If you've read my previous reviews for some of the books in this series, you'll know that I've been rather disappointed overall by the KoH series. Most of them seemed to more fizzle than anything else, but I'm glad to say that this book is a marked improvement over the last few books in this series. It's not an overwhelmingly great "Graham's back" type of book, but it's enough to where I can definitely recommend it to Graham fans.

I really believe that part of what makes the book work

The Unspoken by Heather Graham is a clever tie-in to the most recent title in the Krewe of Hunters series, The Unholy. Medical Examiner and paranormal investigator Kat Sokolov was involved in the investigation, featuring the possible reanimation of the mummy of Amun Mopat. Amun Mopat was supposedly an evil and powerful sorcerer during the reign of Ramses II. A ship carrying the contents of the tomb of Amun Mopat sank in Lake Michigan in 1898 and has never been found. A group of Egyptologists bas ...more

Here I was, having just read THE UNHOLY, wondering why I'd never read a Heather Graham book before, and Netgalley gives me the opportunity to read another! We see some of the same characters from the Krewe working in the previous novel, and lo, a mummy in Chicago's lake with ties to the previous case! But new readers can jump right in. There are hints of what happened before, but I didn't feel like I would have been lost if I hadn't just read the previous book. Searching for a mummy (and a kille

This is another book I listened to and from work.

It was okay for a quick mystery read type of book.

It is funny how different people or events in a book stick out when it is being read to you vs. you reading it yourself. It is almost like seeing a movie because it is the story tellers interpretation of the book vs. you as the reader. The author describes a scientist in the book as "bald and looking a bit like the Sesame Street character Dr. Bunson Honeydew". This should be

Setting: Chicago
Case: a diver died while investigating an old ship that carried a mummy of an Egyptian priest a long time ago. Soon there is another victim, but it seems a natural death and it's up to Kat Sokolov and Will Chan to find out if there has been a crime at all.
So far of all the female characters in both teams, Kat is the worst. She is one of those characters who constantly remind people of their degree and who, without thinking, turn their backs to a dangerous person.

My Thoughts

I am so glad I have discovered this Krewe of Hunters series. In The Unspoken, Ms. Graham combines a murder mystery with some historical information and just enough romance to make it fun. We get to learn a bit about time period of Amun Mopat as Katya and Will work to solve the mystery behind the murder of three people involved with the salvage of the Jerry McGuen .

This is my second Krewe of Hunter book (and book seven in the series). The stories are just

Stars: 3.5 / 5
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal activities.

The Unspoken is the seventh book in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham and published in July of 2012. This plot revolves around Dr. Katya "Kat" Sokolov - the third member from the second group of elite paranormal investigators of The Krewe - and Will Chan - media forensics guru and one of the member of the first Krewe of Hunters.

To start off, I liked the 'Note from the Author' in the beginning that gave an overview of the series. This is the 7th book in the series so if anyone jumped in midway through for whatever reason, it brought an understanding to the concept.

I looked forward to this novel as we were bringing back Will from the original Krewe. He didn't get his own story like the others. In the least he's paired with someone so he'll at least somewhat get his own story.

I always thoroughly enjoy reading one of Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters novels. While they are mystery and suspense, often covering murder(s), they also delve into the paranormal - ie the Krewe members are not only highly trained FBI agents but they also apply their 'sixth sense' when solving crime. And, no, it's not the 'ghosties' committing murder and mayhem but they are essentially a 'tool' to catch the bad guy(s) of flesh and blood.

Weekends means milk tea and mystery for me. And Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters stories have just the right amount of mystery, ghosts and some romance to relax the weekend away.

3 stars for this book. It didn’t make me scared enough to read it during the day only. And the creep factor wasn’t there. Hmm, hangover from The Tattooist perhaps?

I usually enjoy Krewe stories but this was just ok. All the elements were there but fell flat. Maybe it’s the Egyptian ghost?
Well. This book. Okay, I loved the premise. Spooky, with underwater archaeology and treasure hunting... all the good stuff. However, the relationship/interaction between the agents, Katya and Will, really bugged me. I understand that the adversary style tension is supposed to ratchet up the attraction, etc., etc., but this story takes place in only a handful on days, maybe a week or so, so I just didn’t buy it.

That said, the haunting aspect, and the mummy’s curse was great. I ate tha

It had a good premise and I couldn't guess the ending right away, but I couldn't connect with the two main characters. They were introduced showing the worst of their personalities and they knew their flaws, but they continued being annoying to each other. Then they were jumping in bed and sharing a deep connection. I have read a few books in this series so I know that is how these books work, but it seemed forced this time around.

I really enjoy these books about a special group of FBI agents who are also "gifted" paranormal investigators. This one takes place in Chicago when a young scientist/Egyptologist/scuba diver is found by his team floating in the hold of a century old ship wreck in Lake Michigan. Of course, other deaths, that have a connection to the wreck and the ancient artifacts contained inside, continue to plague the Krewe team. Is there a ancient Egyptian curse on the wreck or is it plain old fashion human g ...more

Having picked up this book out of order in the series, my impression was not as favorable as it might have been if I'd started with the first book in the series. The plot seemed fairly simple although I was not highly invested in determining who the criminal(s) were. I was more interested in the fact that the ship wreck happened in Lake Michigan, being a life time Michigan dweller, and having lived much of that time only 10 miles from said lake. I also felt that only a few of the characters were ...more

There, she has to work with Will, the magician of the New Orleans Krewe. Of course, they don't get along at first and also of course, they eventually fall madly in love with ...more

This was a really interest story about Egyptian history and specifically the mummy of Amun Mopat which had been lost when the ship that was bringing all the artifacts back from Egypt sank in Lake Michigan in 1898. After a severe storm, the ship was uncovered in the dark mucky water and the adventure begins.

A fun blend of crime, ghosts, mummies, Egyptian tales/history and romance. Kat and Will are an interesting couple as they don’t seem to hit it off right away. It was nice to see members from both Krewe’s working together and in another city. The guilty parties were somewhat predictable but the story and visuals were still entertaining and nicely developed. It was fun seeing some of the cities secondary characters such as Dirk and the ME. I do wish we saw more of the Krewe as Kelsey and Sean and ...more

Not sure why I keep listening to these. Well probably because they are entertaining despite how full of holes the explanation of what happened is and how wildly lame the psychological make up of the bad guys is. For example how can someone who appears and acts completely sane and normal throughout the book, suddenly be totally crackers . . . these guys are supposed to be professionals and so would be able to have at least some inkling that something was amiss. There were several 'bad guys' in th ...more

As per her norm...

I love Heather Graham as an author. She writes books that suck you in, and won't let you put them down. All of her books should come with the caveat that you shouldn't start them unless you have time to finish it in one sitting. They are terrific rides, and leave you breathless at the end! Fun!!!
