I've given this a B for narration and a D+ for content at AudioGals, which ends up around 3 stars.

While Fade to Black is billed as (wait for it!) twenty-fourth in Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series, there is (fortunately) no need to have read or listened to any of the others, as the novel is basically a standalone. I’ve been on a bit of a romantic suspense kick lately and the synopsis – a story of murder involving cast members of a cult TV show – sounded interesting, so I requested a rev

If you are a fan of super heroes, comic books and those general fandoms, as well as ghosts and other things paranormal, then this may be the Krewe of Hunters book that you need to check out.

This is the first book in a new miniseries within the Krewe of Hunters series. It’s going to feature three brothers who are also private investigators. From this first book, neither of the main characters are currently members of the Krewe, but Bryan is getting assistance from them.

The novel opens up at a com
This time, I have in my possession all three books in Heather Graham's latest Krewe of Hunters trilogy. This series features three brothers, Bryan, Bruce, and Brodie McFadden, and the women they grow to love in the course of a paranormal crime investigation.Fade to Black, the first in the series, features the oldest brother, Bryan McFadden.

Fade to Black opens in dramatic style. The cast of a popular older show, now in syndication, Dark Harbor, is participating in a Comic Con in West Hollywood. F

3.5 stars.

Even though these are ghost stories, they are very easy reads and not too terrifying at all. This book introduces the first of three McFadden brothers, whose actor parents died during a theatre show and started haunting their three sons soon after. Talk about never getting rid of your parents!

So with their special abilities to see ghosts, they are prime candidates for the Krewe, especially since they are also war veterans with PI licences. When a Hollywood friend of their parents died

This was my first time listening to a book in this series, but when I saw that Luke Daniels was narrating I jumped for it. He did a fantastic job with the characters and it was fun hearing hints of Oberon and Orla (Iron Druid Chronicles).

Fade to Black begins at Comic-con where Marnie Davante a famous sitcom star, makes an appearance, to help fund her dream of opening a children's theater. Things turn upside down when her co-star is murdered by a man dressed as a comic villain. Meanwhile, PI Brya

This latest Krewe of Hunters addition did not have me spell bound so I'm not going to say too much about it. I think it will appeal to readers who like superheroes and comic books, which I'm simply not into. I'll still be reading the next one by Heather Graham though.

You can never go wrong when you pick up a Krewe of Hunters book...
Absolutely loved it....
This was another really good read about the special FB I unit that deals in the paranormal. The murder takes place at a comic-con where a man, in full costume kills one of the cast members. The cast was from a series, that still played on re runs, and dealt with slaying vampires,or werewolves, or demons, that had inspired a cult following. Bryan McFadden, who has helped out people before in distress, is talked into intervening on their behalf by his parents. It does not matter that they are A li ...more

It was a quick read. I finished to find out who the killer was. The romance was...not really believable? Honestly, this felt like "omg I need to finish a book really fast, let me not worry about slowly developing the relationship between the leads."

Stars: 3 / 5
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal elements, historical flair and the romantic side of the plot.

Fade to Black is the twenty fourth book in the longest series, Krewe of Hunters, by Heather Graham and published in May of 2018. The primary plot is centered around - Bryan McFadden - an ex-military and current Private Investigator - and Marnie Davante - actress in a cult TV Show. The plot is set in Los Angeles, CA.

This book forms the first book in the next

Love this series. Besides liking paranormal stories, I like the history of the settings where the stories take place. The characters are well written and the story line is very good. I do recommend this series but should be read in order. Looking forward to the next one.

For some reason i didn't feel so spelled bound reading this book as i did with her other books.
There was just something that seemed to drag and i got bored while reading it. i try hard not to skip pages to keep the moment but this time i felt like it was just slow moving. It is a great book if you are more into romance then action. The mystery was hard to follow. Someone wanted power, willing to kill for it, and someone had to die. The basic mystery.

So, context: I started in earnest to immerse myself in reading romance novels. I enjoy romance arcs in literary fiction and fantasy books, so I felt compelled to try a true romance novel and find a style (or two or three) of romances I want to continue reading. I picked up FADE TO BLACK because I read the first two chapters in a free sampler of "Summer Romance" titles.

The first two chapters sold me on downloading the entire book digitally from SPL via the Libby app. However, the more I read the

Marnie Davante is an actress of a show with a cult following, but someone has it in for the main cast , a comic super villian named Bloodbone has just killed Clare Barton, Marnies tv mothers, and now her ghost is haunting Marnie.
Bryan McFadden and his two brothers lost their parents both actors in a tragic accident, but that isn't the only thing the close brothers have in common, they see ghost. Unfortunately for them their mother and father stayed behind saying their boys still needed guidance,

"Fade to Black" is okay but nothing to write home about. Neither the characters or the plot are well developed. I couldn't feel anything for them. Suspense was missing. I enjoyed the earlier books in the "Krewe of Hunters" Series very much. Earlier books in this series hold your interest and, when reading them, you hate to put them down.

Heather Graham has always been, and still is, one of my favorite authors. To me, I believe she is writing too many books a year. In doing this, her books are los

Thank goodness! I believe I need to stick to Krewe of Hunters books because I have had disappointment with some of the other series by Heather Graham even though I liked them in the beginning. The Krewe has always been good and this book is no exception. I really like the character Bryan McFadden and the idea that his brothers will have books, too. Marnie is a little different. She seemed really nice at first but turned into a flat-out witch when Bryan turned up and was trying to help. I underst ...more

Another first book in a trilogy of the Krewe of Hunters and another most intriguing mystery. This time three brothers - who started seeing and hearing ghosts when their parents were suddenly killed - are involved, with the story leading to Hollywood with its stars, starlets and has beens.
Once again, Heather Graham spins an incredible tale of intrigue and suspense as well as many red herrings along the way, so that the reader will be surprised as to the ending and who the culprit turns out to be.

The Krewe of Hunters comes to Hollywood in this series entry, with PI Bryan McFadden sent to assist ... by the ghost of his mother, who was a friend of the first murder victim.

No one seems to be sure whether Cara Barton was the intended victim, or whether it was to be actress Marnie Davante ... and it's fairly clear that the killer is trying to at least frighten Marnie out of her wits.

The mystery was well-constructed, with lots of twists and misdirections before the final "whodunnit" was reveale

Marnie is at Comic con with fellow cast mates when one is struck down with a sword from a character actor. She dies. Across the continent, Bryan is being harassed by his dead mother to go and help the dead actress save her friend. He relented and goes. They do not hit it off as Marnie thinks she is crazy for seeing her dead friend at her funeral and Bryan tells her she isn't because he sees her also. Read and find out how this ends.

FADE TO BLACK by Heather Graham is a great addition to her Krewe of Hunters series. The paranormal aspects are skillfully woven into the plot. Actress Marnie Davante's world is shattered when a killer focuses on her, and PI Bryan McFadden is drawn into the mystery in this page turner. Graham deftly injects humor with her ghostly characters. FADE TO BLACK is a good read!

This is another winner. This is my favorite series. I have read all her books since the 80's . Heather Graham writes wonderful storylines and all the people that belong to Adam and his agents are great too. I highly recommend all her books to everyone who love ghosts and those that can see them. Diana Romano

Love the Krewe!

Adam has a way of finding the best people to add to the crew! Bryan is a perfect fit. Marnie is a wonderful character and I loved the return to Hollywood or not quite Hollywood but the tv and film industry for this book. Cara and Jeremy were perfect and Bryan's parents set a perfect stage. Loved it! Bravo Heather write on! Davia
