Publisher’s Description: From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Heather Graham comes a new story in her Krewe of Hunters series…
When you’re looking for the victim of a mysterious murder in a theater, there is nothing like calling on a dead diva for help! Krewe members must find the victim if they’re to discover the identity of a murderer at large, one more than willing to kill the performers when he doesn’t like the show.
It’s Halloween at the Global Tower Theatre, a fantastic and historic theater owned by Adam Harrison and run by spouses of Krewe members. During a special performance, a strange actor makes an appearance in the middle of the show, warning of dire events if his murder is not solved before another holiday rolls around.
Dakota McCoy and Brodie McFadden dive into the mystery. Both have a
special talent for dealing with ghosts, but this one is proving elusive. With the help of Brodie’s diva mother and his ever-patient father – who were killed together when a stage chandelier fell upon them – Dakota and Brodie set out to solve the case.
If they can’t solve the murder quickly, there will be no Thanksgiving for the Krewe . . .
Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
I found this as a part as my Audible Escape package. I’d never tried Heather Graham, so I figured to give her a shot. I realize this is #26.5 in the series, but according to the description it is a stand alone.
I wouldn’t exactly believe the stand alone part. There are plenty of references that I didn’t get. It wasn’t an impactful book probably because I jumped into the middle of the series.
With that being said, it was a good book. I got the drift mostly, although characters were a puzzle. I got confused once or twice but I’m not the sharpest tack in the box either. Anyway, this series obviously deals with the paranormal. There were ghosts in this story so I imagine there are other paranormal things in the other books. This story was a murder mystery. No sex, no graphic gore but some really good writing. That shouldn’t be a surprise since this is no indie author. Heather Graham is well known and prolific author.
I think I’ll give the series a chance. I feel like I’d be lying if I even rated this book because since it’s part of a series that sort of was a standalone but really not, I can’t really judge. I thought it was good. I’ll let you know more after I read more of the series.
