She’s being murdered.

It was supposed to be a fun girls’ weekend in Salem, but when a past-life regression session instead sends a terrifying vision of murder to Kylie Connelly, she’s shaken and doesn’t know what to think. Worse, later she identifies the attacker from her vision: he’s a prominent local politician.

Special Agent Jon Dickson of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters is on the trail of a suspected serial killer based on the scantest of clues and unreliable witness testimony. When he realizes Kylie’s vision might be his best lead, he must gain her trust and get close enough to guide her new talent. Though she doubts herself, the danger Kylie sees is all too real—and the pair will have to navigate a murderer’s twisted passions and deceptions to stop the killer from claiming another victim.


Seeing Darkness by Heather Graham takes us to Salem, Massachusetts as we hunt for a serial killer. Spirits, deadly visions and romance await you….

While this is the thirtieth novel in the Krewe of Hunters paranormal romantic suspense series, it is important to note each work on its own. In addition, the series break up into three to four book mini series Linked by location, connection of characters or theme. This begins the first of one such mini series.

Kylie Connelly a recent Harvard grad and her three friends are in Salem for a girls’ weekend. One of their planned events is a past-life regression session. When it’s Kylie’s turn she experiences a murder through the eyes of the victim. It leaves her spooked, but the girls head out to dinner. At the Cauldron, Kylie nearly faints when she sees the man in her vision on TV. Special Agent Jon Dickson of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, overhears and catches her. The tale that unfolds offers a clever murder-mystery.

Jon thinks Kylie has seen the actual murder. He is in Salem to catch a clever serial killer after getting a clue at one of the crime scene that leads him to the Cauldron. Is it possible Kylie has seen his serial killer?

Salem’s rich history, the graveyards and past-life regressions were all intriguing. Graham always shares the setting’s history and the Salem Witch trials were a part of it. I always love the tidbits she weaves into her tales.

Jackson and other members of the Krewe arrive and we get to see both familiar ghosts and new. Between Kylie’s friends, tour guides, locals and Krewe we had a fun list of suspects and an interesting group to learn about.

The murder-mystery was tightly woven and felt realistic. Here we know the villain from the beginning, but are they tied to the other murders? You must read to discover it for yourself.

Read this for the mystery first as the romance is served on the side dish. We learn Jon and Kylie’s story as they work together and the chemistry felt genuine.

Fans of murder-mysteries with hints of the paranormal will enjoy Seeing Darkness, its characters and setting.

    I love that its set in Salem. Salem, Savannah and the old French Quarter of New Orleans always feel like perfect spooky towns. I’ll read this series eventually.
