There's a new psychic on the scene, and he's ready for action: introducing Lucas Jordan, the latest addition to Noah Bishop's crackerjack Special Crimes Unit.

Lucas Jordan has an extraordinary psychic skill that police all over the country find invaluable: he locates missing people. And since being recruited by Noah Bishop for his FBI Special Crimes Unit, Lucas has learned to hone his remarkable ability so that what he does seems little short of miraculous.

He's called in on what appear to be a series of ordinary kidnappings-for-ransom, but almost immediately Lucas realizes the situation is far from ordinary -- and more deadly than anything he's ever faced before. Because a brilliant, twisted madman is out to win a sick game, matching his wits against the best hunter he can find: Lucas.

Baker & Taylor
In a first installment of a new trilogy, psychic investigator Lucas Jordan, sought after by police throughout the nation for his ability to locate missing people, responds to what seems to be a routine string of kidnappings and finds himself targeted by a ruthless and brilliant adversary. By the author of Sense of Evil. 110,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
He's no ordinary kidnapper. Not only does he strike again and again, but he collects the ransom, gets away safely, and leaves his helpless hostages dead. Now, after months of eluding the best that law enforcement can put against him, this monster has left nothing in his wake but a cold trail of unconnected victims.
He's no ordinary cop. Lucas Jordan, a key agent and profiler in Noah Bishop's Special Crimes Unit, has an extraordinary skill: he locates missing people. But his uncanny ability comes with a price, and his methods rouse mistrust in the hard-nosed cops forced to call him into their investigations.
Now Jordan has come to Clayton County, North Carolina, where the latest in a string of kidnapping victims has turned up dead. Complicating the situation is the presence - and predictions - of someone who's even more of an outsider than Jordan himself: carnival psychic Samantha Burke, a woman out of his own haunted past. Her warnings meet with skepticism from the local police but spur Jordan on to do what he does best: hunt fear.
But the killer he is hunting is hunting Jordan - and he's already several moves ahead in a twisted game whose rules Jordan must learn in order to have a fighting chance. For his psychopathic opponent has extended a very personal challenge - and he's about to threaten the one life the profiler values even more than his own.

Fascinating premise, poorly executed. The writing was juvenile, unsophisticated, repetitive. I won't be reading any more from this author.

Of all the Kay Hooper books I've read thus far this is probably my favorite. I loved the characters introduced and how there was a back story to them without it being revealed all at once. The dance between Lucas and Samantha has the sort of elements and emotions that I think make sparkage.

The plot is dark and weaves a tale that has you turning the pages to find out more. I didn't find anything about this book to be boring or dull. It's jammed back with action, mystery, suspense, a touch of romance, supernatural and character driven plots. Five stars!
