Murdered by a dead man?

A woman named Maria Gomez is murdered in Miami, apparently by her husband—who'd been presumed dead, slain by a crime boss. FBI agent Brett Cody can't believe it; dead or alive, the man had loved his wife. He also can't help feeling guilty, since he was responsible for protecting Miguel and Maria Gomez.

A few miles away, Lara Mayhew has just begun wo

Have you ever gotten stuck in a book series and each time a new installment comes out, you have to grab it right away? Even though you know that every book in the series follows the same pattern? You know there will be a happy ending, boy gets girl or vice versa, and the mystery is solved, but you still keep reading? The Krewe of Hunters books are that series for me. Now, it might seem from what I wrote above that these books may not be good but that is not the case at all. I actually love them! ...more

Krewe of Hunters (team) are researching clues of female body parts brought up by "Cocoa" the Dolphin (Lara Mayhew is now working at dolphin research facility). It was difficult to follow the clues in determining the murderer. In addition, the FBI agent Brett Cody was protecting Miguel and Maria Gomez - Maria Gomez is found dead and the murderer must be found. The book did not flow as smooth as desired. ...more

I found this book to be very entertaining but not really suspenseful. Never once was I actually concerned about the characters. I guess I just expected them to sail through all of the problems without a scratch. I'm not sure why I felt that way but I did. Maybe I wasn't really connecting with them? Unsure. Yet it's not a bad story at all. In fact it was fun to read and the writing, the descriptions are top notch. I could almost see hot tropical Florida. And I liked Cocoa the dolphin.

This is the first book I have read by Heather Graham, the multiple award winning romantic suspense author. And honestly speaking, it left me cold.

The premise is intriguing enough...a woman is murdered by her husband who is supposed to have been killed by the mafia. Even as FBI agent Brett is investigating the case more such murders by 'dead men' are revealed and the media goes ballistic about 'zombie attacks'. Meanwhile, Lara who has just started working at Sea Life, a dolphin research facility

Five reasons to grab The Forgotten

Zombies! It seems the dead are back and killing those they love. Yep-this case was very intriguing and intense.
Dolphins! I love these beautiful, intelligent creatures and we befriend one brilliant dolphin.
A slow-burning romance in sunny Miami Florida filled with snark, witty banter and a little heat. Graham did an excellent job of making me fall for Brett and Lara.
While the Krewe is called in (Matt and Meg), Brett is not actually Krewe. I cannot reme

Stars: 3.5 / 5
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal elements, historical flair and the romantic side of the plot.

The Forgotten is the sixteenth book in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham and published in July of 2015. The plot is centered around Brett Cody - FBI Agent - and Lara Mayhew - working at the dolphin research facility. The plot is set in Miami, FL, 3 weeks after the events of the previous book, The Silenced.

"The Forgotten," the latest installment of Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters series, brings us to Miami when a man comes home...and kills his wife. Agent Brett Cody, who'd known the dead man, takes the wife's murder to heart, and vows to find out the truth about why Maria Gomez was killed. Meanwhile, Lara Mayhew has come to a dolphin sanctuary in Miami for a new start. And her new life begins with a bang when one of the sanctuary's dolphins brings her a present: a dead man's finger. So begins a ...more
If you're a fan of Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters series, as I am, here's a warning. Don't read my review unless you've already readThe Silenced. Graham's latest suspense novel in the series, The Forgotten, includes some of the same characters, and it will spoil The Silenced if you haven't read it. For those who are going on with the review, The Forgotten is as fascinating as all the other books in the series.

3.5/5 stars

I admit to being a trifle disappointed in this latest entry in the "Krewe of Hunters" series. It seems as though author Heather Graham was just in too much of a hurry to put zombies into her story and get in on the latest supernatural literary trend.

Lara Mayhew, who was in the previous book ("The Silenced") is the main character here. She's in Florida, working for Sea Life, a marine mammal sanctuary, as their PR liaison. One of the dolphins, Cocoa, has taken a particular liking to her

Even though I am not a big fan of paranormal genre, I have been intrigued by this series, and how the ghosts are communicating with the FBI agents, and helping out with the cases.
With this story at first, the whole zombie attack was a bit much to me, but as the evidence is revealed, and more information comes forward, including medical evidence, of what really seemed to happen, it all got more fascinating by every page.
The mystery is alluring, so many questions that need answers.

I thought this series would eventually get old, but here I am on book 16! I really enjoyed this one. Heather Graham described Miami very well, and I liked the role that the dolphin research facility played in the plot. The crime itself involved a notorious crime ring and “zombies” killing their loved ones. Heather Graham also worked in some interesting information on Miami’s Haitian community.

This book was lighter on the paranormal elements - ghosts are present in the story at critical moments,
This is another of the Krewe of Hunter series and it was much better than the last one. The story takes place in Miami and the area surrounding Biscayne Bay. Much of it is set at a Dolphin facility where you can go to swim with the Dolphins and concerns one of the secondary characters from the last in this series. Enjoyable and fast read.

I love Heather Graham and the Krewe Hunters. In the Forgotten, a dolphin is the real hero. The murders are gross and two FBI agents help solve the case. It is easy to get caught up in these murder mysteries. And of course there is always a happy love connection. I have six more of this series lined up to read.

Not my favorite . Not as interesting. Not that interested in the main characters. One throw-away crazy. And the zombi idea should have been scary, but it was not.

Lara Mayhew is recovering well from the horrific living nightmare that had her the prisoner of a serial killer, locked naked in the darkness. She has left Washington DC and relocated to the Miami area where she has become the Public Relations Directors for a marine life facility. Her new best friend is Cocoa, one of the female dolphins at the facility. Cocoa has taken such a liking to her that the researchers have asked her to learn how to work with her.

The Forgotten by Heather Graham is the 16th adventure in this exciting Krewe Hunter series! I was thrilled to read this book. The cover was intriguing. The cast of memorable characters from previous books were included (which is always the best part) and new characters were introduced. In this story, I was in Florida exploring how the dead and recent dead victims came back alive. The scenes were vivid and full of risks. Every step the characters took, there was danger waiting for them to make a ...more

I honestly just drove into this novel straight from the previous. Graham's structure of writing hasn't changed and thats alright by me!

My first note was around halfway through in regards to the topic. This novel brought up Voodoo and I was hoping for my girl Whitney from the first novel series to return. She's my favorite and we have yet to have her return.

The other thing I noticed about 3/4 of the way through was that we didn't reference the spirits/ghosts as much in this novel. Very sparingly

This was just ok. I was a little annoyed with the mary sue-ness of the main character, Lara. When we're introduced to her, she's all about history and politics and completely obsessed with Harpers Ferry. Now, after a traumatic incident (understandably) she's changed careers and does PR for a dolphin research facility, a passion of hers never mentioned in the first book. Of course, she meets the male model FBI agent who is suspicious of her and she's perfect in every way so they hook up. The myst ...more

I've read the Krewe of Hunters series out of order, BUT I'm glad I read The Silenced first, seeing that this book provides spoilers for it. If you are going to read these books, at least read The Silenced before this one. Also don't read my review because it will show spoilers for The Silenced. :)

I enjoyed this book. I liked the continuation of Lara's story, and I like that Meg and Matt were again in this one. I like the mystery part of this one- it made for an interesting story line
Read as an audiobook performed by Phil Gigante, about 8.75 hours. The story was interesting and the involvement of folks who see the dead and some very smart non-human mammals was a plus. However, I must have missed the "romantic suspense" in the description. The romance part was a detractor rather than an enhancer. By the time I got to the end of the story, I had lost a lot of interest and it wrapped up too fast to be satisfying. Further, this was an audiobook and the narrator did not win my in ...more
I read The Forgotten before picking up The Silenced and I’m so glad I did as rather than seeing Lara as that almost broken woman she had been, instead my first introduction to her was of a fun and vibrant woman who put a smile on the faces of everyone around her (for the most part).

Her relationship with Cocoa, the dolphin, was sweet, and I found the insistence of Cocoa to assist Lara with this weird version of fetch to be a great plot device. The way the author weaved the almost unconnected murd

I don't like being disappointed with a book. But I don't like having to force myself to read it either. It may be because this is the first book I've read from this author, but I really disliked this book. Reading the other reviews, it seems like I read a different book. Exciting? Not at all. Couldn't put it down? Forced to pick it up! I just can't get engaged with the story, and the premise - although interesting - is delivered poorly and by a series of tropes and wooden characters. For a horro ...more
While utterly predictable, this book still made the journey a great ride with great characters and beautiful setting descriptions. This one brought in a bit of science fiction as well as of course the friendly, helpful ghosts. It also incorporated a friendly and extraordinarily intelligent dolphin as one of the important characters. If you like these genres and have liked other books in this series, you're likely to enjoy this one as well. ...more

The most unlikely friends

Dolphins, zombies, friends, intrigue, crime and romance. Yes please! This was fun and fast read. The build up on the romance was paced well and it was great seeing Lara again after she had such a horrific role in the last book. The take on zombies was unique and slightly horrifying but genius. This is a great series and I love how each book follows a similar line but is also individual in their story and background! Loving the Krewe.

This book was a bit different from others in the series as the female protagonist did not join the Krewe, but she was made the offer. Though I have only been through Miami (on my way to Key West and back), I enjoyed the description of neighborhoods as well as the ocean mammal protection site where she worked as well as the interaction with dolphins. Another good, if formulaic, story from Heather Graham.
