Sleepy Hollow isn't so sleepy anymore…
One night, New York FBI agent Aiden Mahoney receives a visitor in a dream - an old friend named Richard Highsmith. The very next day he's sent to Sleepy Hollow because Richard's gone missing there.
Maureen-Mo-Deauville now lives in the historic town and works with her dog, Rollo, to search for missing people....more
I liked this story quite a bit, but I do have to admit that they can get a bit predictable.
The story begins with the beheading of two people; so its gruesome right from the start. Mo is bright in with her Wolfhound dog Rolo to help search for the bodies, as the heads have already been located (atop Headless Horsemen effigies). Aiden is brought in to assist in finding the killer. He is the newest recruit for the Krewe of Hunters but he doesn't understand why he has been picked by the ...more
THE BETRAYED, by Heather Graham (Krewe of Hunters #14) a compelling supernatural mystery thriller, which takes place in the towns of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, New York, the site of Washington Irving’s LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW.
New York FBI agent Aiden Mahoney dreams (a voice) of an old friend Richard and the next day he reads in The Times, “Highsmith Missing”. Aiden has been working as an FBI field ...more
FBI agent Aiden Mahoney is new to the Krewe Hunter team and is not sure why he was selected for such an elite unit, one that is known for dealing with "weird" cases--or more simply put, the ...more
Except THE BETRAYED didn’t really live up to the last book’s standards, in my opinion. While Graham’s pretty much mastered setting and Sleepy Hollow and the surrounding area were their own characters ...more
I will start by stating that this is the first novel I have read by Heather Graham. I have no experience with any others in the series, or any of her other work, so this is a first for me, all ways around.
It was instantly apparent that Graham’s had mastered her setting and the characters within the her story, as they were all so vivid and clear, but still, I felt that the interactions of the protagonists was ...more
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal elements, historical flair and the romantic side of the plot.

Richard's decapitated head has been found in the town of Sleepy Hollow by Maureen Deauville and her ...more
Aiden and Mo make an interesting pair, but unfortunately it takes a long time for the two of them to connect. Aiden struggles with his abilities, and as thus he makes an intriguing character. The murder mysteries are good too, and as usual, Graham crafts an engaging paranormal mystery. Unfortunately I found it difficult to connect with Aiden and Mo – although interesting, they were also somewhat obnoxious and I doubt ...more
I had trouble warming up to Aiden. A new twist on an agent who is not admitting to himself he can talk to the dead. I really liked Mo & Rollo though.
The mystery was pretty good. I loved the incorporation of the headless horseman and Sleepy Hollow setting.
Aiden is a new hire to Logan's krewe. It was nice having Logan, Sloan, Jane, and Will working as a team again.
When the third body showed up they anticipated it will be apart of another Headless Horseman display. But I thought the police removed or ordered the removal of all displays? Maybe it was just the two that were crime scenes before were removed... either way slightly confusing, but not a loss
Graham has been withholding on the hook up and falling in love details more into the late half of the book with is a different ...more
There are twists and turns and a murderer no one would expect. The ghosts are interesting characters and help develop the romance ...more
Once again 5 gold stars plus 1 million more. The Betrayed was a look t what greed is really like and how a Brave / Traitor Ancestor was hanged and his Women he loved killed to save their daughter only to have the family line be brought to an end by people who wanted what was buried with the dead daughter. But in the end life goes on and their is a happy ever after after all.
