The last of the Harrison Investigations series by Heather Graham. And this was one of the best so far. Maybe it's because it wasn't set in New Orleans.... though, one of the casinos was called the Big Easy. Maybe it's because the ghost story was really good in this one. And, maybe it's just because the main couple's chemistry was just really good. But I liked it a lot.

“I see dead people.” That line from The Sixth Sense, delivered by that child actor, has become one of the more famous, and infamously parodied, in recent history. It sent chills up my spine when I saw the movie and even now, just remembering gives me the shivers. I’m not sure what the continuing lure is for stories about ghosts, but it’s certainly an enduring part of every society and every generation. Heather Graham’s latest romantic suspense, “

A neighbor gave me this book and because I have another neighbor who wants to read it I read it rather quickly. I became a Heather Graham fan a couple of years ago when my sister gave me a triology set for Christmas. I found this book disappointing in one respect: it had several typos and things that just didn't correlate with other parts of the story. With the current ebook explosion readers are becoming more and more incensed by bad editing and poorly written books. Most of this ire has been d ...more

Another good Harrison Investigation read (pre-Krewe of Hunters). The star of the book was definitely Ringo, Dillon Wolf's ghostly side kick. Another where I never saw the killer coming. I am now caught up on pre-Krewe books and I enjoyed the ride!

My go-to author for relaxation and enjoyment! She does an excellent job of combining mystery, the paranormal, and romance to make a good story. This, the final installment of the Harrison Investigations series, is set in Las Vegas, always a great location for a story!

The term Nightwalker is a Native American word for people who can see and talk to ghosts. The protagonist in this book, Dillon Wolf, is a Paiute who works for a company that solves mysteries where ghosts are expected to be playing a part. In fact, his sidekick, Ringo Murphy, is a ghost. Dillon and Ringo currently find themselves in Las Vegas, Nevada. They are sent there to work on a case which includes protecting a casino owner. They end up protecting a beautiful single woman who happens to be i ...more

I picked this book up because the premise looked interesting- Jessy Sparhawk is running on empty. Desperate for some money, she gambles what’s left at a Vegas casino. What she doesn’t expect is the large man who stumbles into her, and dies rather dramatically, with a knife sticking out of his back and a single word whispered in her ear. Suddenly, Jessy finds herself in the middle of murders, ghosts, and the obligatory sexy private detective, Dillon Wolf.

I did not want this book to end. It was great reading and a mystery that is not solved until the end. The mystery starts a hundred years before with a shootout in a saloon in a small town of Indigo but ends in Las Vegas in a casino where Jessy Sparhawk is trying to win enough money to pay housing for her Grandfather. Dillon Wolf was called in to try and solve an attempted murder but the plot goes much deeper than that. Wonderful book.

Loved the character development as always from Graham. She never disappoints. The action was fast paced and the secondary characters added to the dynamics well. The romance progressed at a believable pace and the Krewe came into play nicely without detracted from the main characters. Can't get enough of these novels!

I can tell Graham isn't as familiar with the Vegas area as she is with some of the other locations she writes about. Or maybe because I live in Vegas, I notice it more. I'm not sure. It was just a bit distracting for me. Which sucks, because we all know I'm total trash for Graham and I'll read pretty much anything she writes.
Also, can we talk about how clear it is that Brent and Nikki are her favorites?

Heather Graham never fails to captivate you with her writing. Jessy an employee at a Vegas Casino finds herself in all kinds of trouble all beginning because someone literally dies on top of her on her day off. You thought you were having a bad day.

Good story

I loved the legends and all the different ghosts in this book especially Ringo he made the book! Dillon was wonderful and Harrison's team is exceptional as always. I am on to the next. Congrats to Timothy! I will leave it there to avoid spoilers.

Did not finish, it was so slow I just couldn't get into it. And the constant descriptions of how "appealing" Jessy was were just so cheesy and eye-roll inducing.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The ending was great. I was a little confused, probably because I listened to it. There were a lot of names to follow, but it was a great book.

I really enjoyed this one!
This is a typical, formulaic Heather Graham story, which is exactly what I wanted to read. :)

I always love when mystery stories have a paranormal element to them. In this case, Nightwalker deals with a woman named Jessy Sparhawk who finds out she can see ghosts after a man dies on top of her in a Las Vegas casino. Private investigator Dillon Wolf is a Nightwalker himself (someone who can see ghosts), and finds himself drawn to Jessy. They team up and together try to solve the mystery of the death of Tanner Green and the mysterious word he said to Jessy.

Sometimes you just need to read something predictable; a good novel with a solid story, fun characters, and no surprises helps when you’re feeling a tad burned out. This is when I turn to Heather Graham. A Graham novel will always contain a headstrong heroine, a smart kind hero, an intriguing mystery, a steamy romance, and ghosts! All good things!

Nightwalker did not disappoint. It contained all the classic Heather Graham elements and made for an enjoyable read during my commute. Jessy is a casin
