The details of the crime scene are no coincidence. The body – a promising starlet – has been battered, bloodied and then discarded between two of Manhattan’s oldest graveyards. One look and Detective Jude Crosby recognizes the tableau: a re-creation of Jack the Ripper’s gruesome work. But he also sees something beyond the actions of a mere copycat. Something more dangerous…and unexplainable. As the city seethes with suspicion, Jude calls on Whitney Tremont, a member of the country’s preeminent paranormal investigating team, to put the speculation to rest. Yet when Whitney and Jude delve deeper, what they discover is more shocking than either could have predicted, and twice as sinister…

As a fan of author Heather Graham, I am happy to report that Sacred Evil delivers. Sacred Evil is the third book in the Krewe of Hunters series. The FBI team is sent to help N.Y. Detective Jude Crosby. NYPD is investigating murders that are eerily identical to Jack the Rippers. The public is alarmed and news media around the globe are reporting, “Jack is back”.

FBI Agent, Whitney Tremont is sent ahead to assist. Jude isn’t exactly thrilled about the FBI’s involvement. He accepts the help but makes it clear he is the lead. Jude is a dedicated detective and a likable guy. He builds a team he can trust and surrounds himself with competent team members. It is quickly evident that the members of his department like and respect him. While he utilizes his team, he keeps late hours and personally checks out all leads himself. Whitney tries to make a good impression for her team and Jude quickly learns that she is more than capable. Her people skills put witnesses and suspects at ease allowing Jude to obtain more information. Whitney’s special abilities give the team some unexpected clues.

The mystery itself was intense, with a long list of possible suspects. I was intrigued by the suspects, storyline and theories. The paranormal elements in the story were excellent. I found myself wanting to research places, cults and historical events mentioned during the investigation. The romance between Jude and Whitney was exciting and didn’t interfere or overwhelm the overall suspense.

Evil Inside, the fourth installment in the Krewe of Hunters series is now available.

I gave Sacred Evil 4 coffee cups out of 5.
