Something lurks beneath the surface ...
Brodie McFadden is supposed to be on vacation, getting some sunshine and deciding if he wants to join his brothers and the Krewe of Hunters, a special paranormal investigation unit of the FBI. But a diving excursion with an old navy buddy to a historic shipwreck uncovers a crime scene-and the corpse is new.
Museum curator Dakota Kody McCoy just wants her Key West culture festival to succeed. She's always had a deep connection to her home, including being regularly haunted by some of the resident ghosts. Then, in the middle of a performance, a beloved local musician drops dead. It seems accidental, but Kody isn't so sure.
Brodie thinks the recent deaths are linked, and he needs help from Kody. Something about her festival is dangerous. And the threat is creeping ever closer. Has she uncovered a treasure from the past that someone will kill for?
Echoes of Evil by Heather Graham is the twenty-sixth book in the Krewe of Hunters paranormal romantic suspense series but will work as standalone. Once again I listened as Luke Daniels is narrating. Key West and a murder-mystery involving musicians quickly pulled me in.
I really enjoy Heather Graham’s mix of paranormal woo-woo and romantic suspense. Her Krewe of Hunters series offers murder-mysteries, ghosts and romance. Within the series are mini-series featuring related characters or a setting. This mini-series comprises Fade to Black, Pale as Death, and Echos of Evil. This series features three-brothers who can see the dead including their dead mother.
Brodie McFadden a private investigator is in the Keys for a little R&R after a big case he helped his brothers with. That and he needs to decide whether he wants to accept the FBI’s offer to join the Krewe of Hunters with his brother. A dead body and museum curator Dakota Kody McCoy soon have him investigating a murder-mystery, seeing ghosts and falling in love.
Once again Graham delivered an interesting mystery, and I enjoyed tagging along for the ride. Dakota can also see ghosts. Her ghostly companion proved to be interesting. I liked both Brodie and Dakota. The setting was familiar having lived in Florida and I could just imagine the local musicians playing. A few twists, some ghostly assistance and some fade to black passion kept things interesting.
I giggled when the murder victim appears as a ghost. Shenanigans and interesting pop-ins added humor.
One thing I love about this series is they way Graham mixed local history into her tales. Don’t let the twenty-six books in series scare you off. Each book offers a complete mystery and romance. All have a tie in to the Krewe of Hunters, a special unit of the FBI that deals with unusual cases. All the members can speak with the dead. Most involve human evil and Graham writes a well-written plausible plot. I guessed who the culprit was, but not the reason until it was revealed.
Once again I enjoyed Luke Daniels’ narration. I confess I prefer when he narrates fantasy, but he gives every character a unique voice and his female voices are well done. I felt that Brodie’s voice was too stiff and deep for my liking.
Echoes of Evil was a fun installment to the Krewe of Hunters and a nice wrap up to the McFadden brothers.

Reading this book contributed to these challenges:
Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library
I just finished Pale as Death and am really anxious to get to Brodie’s series. So far I’ve really loved this trio. It’s got just the right mix of ghosts, suspense, history and romance.
I completely agree Katherine!
Omg book 26!! And I have read nothing by her
Oh My ..we need to fix that 🙁

Wow that is a lot of books for one series! It must be a fun one. I’m always up for paranormal. Great review!
Yes, I think because all of the books work as standalone and involving different locations and teams it really works.
I’m glad you still like them after this many. I am just planning to start this series and I have bought about 7 or 8 of them on audio. I don’t think one can go too wrong with Luke Daniels either. Anne – Books of My Heart
She keeps them fresh by changing things up with new teams and locations.
I can see myself enjoying this one.
Yes, I could see you enjoying this as well.
wow #26 already. Are the characters from way back still there at all? I also loved how Heather always managed to add some history to her Krew tales. I may just get this on audible. Thanks Kim
Andrew Jackson, sometimes the founder, but within the series are mini-series in different locations and with different Krewe, you can start this one with Fade to Black.

I really need to grab her Suspense books…I have only read her historical’s and whew what a long SERIES!! But this one sounds fabulous.
No worries on the length of series. You can read the mini-series with the brothers: Fade to Black, Pale as Death, and Echos of Evil. It’s a whole new Krewe.

I only read one of her books and I loved the suspense. I plan to read the first book in this series for the Fraterfest. After 26 books it’s good to hear she’s still entertaining fans. Great review Kim and I can’t wait to start this series.
That is awesome Kathy, I look forward to hearing what you think.
Anything written by Heather Graham goes on my “TBR” list! Thanks for the post, and have a great weekend!!!
Same. Enjoy your weekend!
Just the mention of Key West as a setting had me perking right up. The victim as a ghost to add humor sounds like a fun touch.
Yes, Key West has a vibe and magic all of its own.
I love that the books stand alone. I am way behind on the series. Have a great weekend.
Me too, no cliffhangers..lol
Twenty sixth book, wow that is a lot to get through.
Yes, but as I said there are mini series and standalones so you can jump in anywhere.
Heather Graham is still doing her thing,and her writing continues to be impressive! Hugs and Happy Friday! RO
Happy Friday Ro.
