Dark legends come to life

With the execution of a serial killer known as the Artiste, Cheyenne Donegal thinks a grim part of her past is finally put to rest. Her cousin had been the twisted killer's final victim, and then-teenage Cheyenne was integral in bringing him to justice. That tragedy drove her to become an FBI agent. And now she's back in Louisiana, because someone is murdering young women in the same manner as the Artiste.

Krewe of Hunters agent Andre Broussard has deep ties in New Orleans and Cajun country beyond. He knows that more than one monster has stalked the bayou. Has a deadly threat been resurrected, or does someone have a dark inspiration?

With the life of a missing woman on the line, Cheyenne and Andre have to set aside their doubts about each other and work to discover the truth. The case is too close and too personal-but they can't let it go, especially now that a ruthless killer has turned the tables and is hunting them.

MURDERMYSTERY paranormal ROMANCE Southern

The Stalking by Heather Graham is a Krewe of Hunters tale set in Louisiana. It delivered an intense mystery that will have our agents/couple traipsing through the bayou and wandering Jackson Square.

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 be copycats of the Artiste, have Krewe of Hunters FBI Agent Andre Broussard aiding Cheyenne. He has deep ties to NOLA and he is here investigating the Rougarou.

The suspect list, witness, interviews, history, and ghostly aid kept me listening. The romance was slow-burning and served on the side, but their connection felt genuine. Most of the romance is off page with some heat at the end. The mystery takes center stage and it was well done.

I loved wandering the shops of New Orleans, the talk of gumbo and exploring Jackson Square. The couple has ties to the area making the situation unique and the way this unfolded delivered a twist especially with the line-up!

While the Krewe of Hunters stories are formulaic Graham brings history, unique murders, and fresh settings that make these both entertaining and comfort reads/listens.
