I never tire of this series. I love the Krewe!
I listened to The Stalking and Roger Wayne delivered an enjoyable listen as we dealt with a Rougarou (Louisiana’s version of a werewolf). I love that Graham often has me researching history, legends and lores with each of her books. She brings history to her books and the tidbits keep things fresh.

FBI Agent Cheyenne Donegal identified the killer known as the Artiste at her cousin’s funeral when she was a teen. She never told a soul that her dead cousin told her.

A series of deaths that appear to

I have to say this was a really fun dark mystery to read I flew through it I enjoyed everything about this book the characters the plot and the twists just wow
This is a rougarou, a Louisiana swamp legend related to a werewolf. It's also the legendary villain in Heather Graham's latest Krewe of Hunters novel, The Stalking.

This series, featuring an elite group of FBI agents who have abilities to see and talk with ghosts, is an atmospheric one that delves into local stories and legends. Graham makes it clear in all of her books that humans are responsible for evil. In the opening chapter of The Stalking, after a serial killer is caught at a funeral, a

3 stars.

I did pick the "whodunnit" fairly early on in this one.

I thought New Orleans and its surrounding area a very interesting place all those years ago when I first started reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series and this Krewe series with Heather Graham has reaffirmed this. I hope I'll be able to visit and see for myself whether I can sense all those "paranormal" vibes.... :)

As for the book, there were a few editing errors (where the wrong name was inserted during a conversation and

Bought this in the airport and made it halfway through. Didn't realize it was part of a larger series. Unbelievable - it's terrible, in every way I can think of.

I think Heather Graham must write her books with her toes while she knits and watches t.v. The main characters are cookie cutter - I ask anybody to show me any true differences between her heroines except maybe hair color. All the culprits are totally cray cray but can hide the fact until the very end...really, not one clue of instability? This book, I had to laugh at the reveal when the criminal starts yelling "I am the rougarou!". And someone running around dressed like a mummy...totally ...more

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

The Stalking is the twenty ninth book in the long-running series, Krewe of Hunters, by Heather Graham and published in September of 2019. The primary plot is centered around Andre Rousseau - a not so recent member of the Krewe of Hunters - and Cheyenne Donegal - an FBI Special Agent.

The plot is set in New Orleans and forms the third book in her next trilogy

I just finished this book. I love Heather Graham books - part mystery/part romance/part paranormal. They are a quick read and entertaining.

good book but...

i like this series but they seem to be getting just a bit redundant Mystery, help from a ghost, solved, new hunter. Things need to change up a bit for me I like the romance\couples angle but maybe a malevolent ghost again since she hasnt done many of those. Maybe a new besides seeing ghosts...idk. Good but predictable.

Heather Graham’s “The Stalking” weaves the Louisiana swamp legend about a “Rougarou”, a werewolf-like creature that tears its victims apart into a chilling supernatural murder mystery that opens with Special Agent Cheyenne Donegal and Krewe of Hunters Agent Andre Broussard’s hunt for a missing woman on the grounds of the Justine Plantation Mortuary and Cemetery where her cousin rests after being murdered in the same manner by “the Artiste”. Years after the tragic deaths, another copycat killer ...more

Her cousin was the final victim of the Artiste and Cheyenne played an integral part in catching him. That was because she saw her cousin's ghost at the funeral and she named her killer.

The Stalking is another Krewe Of Hunters supernatural mystery romance that luckily, this time, wasn’t as heavy on the romance part as it could be. I never even had to skip over huge chunks of the story to get to the action.

As with the others in this series I’ve read so far, the plot was a slow boil, taking a good while to get to the (in this case) rather sudden conclusion.

That being said, it was still a fun read, with solid third-person, past-tense writing. There was some head-hopping, which is

Romance-serial killer whodunnit with supernatural elements. Semi-historical mystery with a plethora of ghosts.

If you’re a romance fan who enjoys a bit of mystery and some supernatural suspense, you may enjoy this book. I love the atmospheric New Orleans settings, plus the more rural, small towns and isolated cemeteries.

The mystery is middling in execution but the concept is original, because the author draws on Louisiana legends and history. I Wiki-read about Rougarou, which is a variation of

When I started reading with the setting in New Orleans and the Dongel plantation, I thought maybe we were getting a visit from my favorite duo with the first Keene. I was incorrect. But the linking of this new duo with a previous Keene member has me a little confused, mostly because it had been awhile since I read the last novel.

It was a good read! I didn't update alot here as I just wanted to keep reading because I was hooked!

It was released in October and I think from the library I received a

Cheyenne Donegal, FBI agent, is in New Orleans hunting down a copycat killer of the Artiste. The Artiste posed pictures of his victims before and after death and sent them to the families and media. Cheyenne’s cousin was his last victim and she named him as her killer. Cheyenne could see and hear the ghost of her cousin and the Artiste was caught. Andre Rousseau is with the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters and is also in New Orleans. He and Cheyenne butted heads at first as neither wanted to admit they ...more

I love this series but was a bit disappointed by the editing. the story starts with Cheyenne Donegal attending the funeral of her cousin who had been murdered. Years later Cheyenne becomes an FBI agent and is assigned to a murder case similar to her cousin's murder. She meets another agent from the FBI Krewe of hunters Andre Broussard who before the second chapter is over his name becomes Andre Rousseau. The story is very captivating but a few editing errors distracted me. I love the Krewe ...more

I've been enjoying the Krewe books since the start. I actually disliked the one before this one, and I am left wondering if the series should close.
I enjoyed Andre's character, but I feel like I'm reading the same story over and over. I love how Graham adds historic and paranormal flair, but Krewe has become repetitive. I felt like the sex scene was just there to be there. There was more chemistry between Cheyenne and Andre than the previous couple, but it was like, "Kay guess we are having sex

When I started reading the particular Krewe of Hunters story, I wasn't convinced,I was going to like it much. Thankfully, after the prologue, the storyline took off and even the intro that I didn't like very much made sense and became important in the end.
However, there was no 'index' to the characters involved, which takes away much of the suspense. Essentially, a list of people involved means that the culprit will be on said list. Without this list, the 'pool' of the 'whodunnit' is much

A hauntingly fun read

New characters and a return to Louisiana. Andre and Cheyenne are FBI agents from the same community and have an odd intermingled history but do not actually k ow each other. They have a series of bad starts to a working relationship which evolves into a fun personal relationship. Family and friends and home are themes in this story as is myth and history. The villains were predictable but the discovery of them was just as engaging and entertaining as the other Krewe

This book is part of the Krewe of Hunters series that feature FBI agents who deal in the supernatural and or paranormal usually the ability to see and converse with dead people. This time is set in Louisiana some in New Orleans and some in Broussard. The agents are investigating a series of death that are similar to deaths years earlier. The book was a page turner that was quickly and easily read.

Another wonderful Krew Of Hunters book!

I always enjoy every book in this series and they never disappoint. An FBI Agent whose cousin was killed by a serial killer joins forces with a Krew member to find the present day copycat. Although I kind of knew who-done-it, this was a good read. A bit of mystery, a bit of romance and some old friends made this book a good one!

Great read!

Great book! Loved the story and the characters. There were so many people to choose from for the bad guy but I really didn't expect who it turned out to be. I love the Krewe and each book is at least as good as the one before it. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Another Good Krewe Story

Another good story from Heather Graham. I have read all Krewe of Hunters books and love them. I don’t like when names get switched like when Andre is talking to Nathaniel and suddenly becomes Andrew! This story is about a killer & 2 copycat killers. Of course there are ghosts & graves involved.
