Review: Phantom Evil (Krewe of Hunters #1)

Phantom Evil
by Heather Graham

Quote: " You have the ability to find all the answers- if you let yourself do so." ~ Mama Matisse pg. 113

Started: Sept. 11, 2012
Finished: Sept. 17, 2012
493 pages/hardcover, large print edition

From the cover:
A secret government unit is formed under the oversight of Adam Harrison, famed paranormal investigator. The six members he's gathered know a little of the other-worldly; each has honed a psychic talent of their own. The case: In a historic mansion in New Orlean's French Quarter, a senator's wife falls to her death from a balcony. Most think she jumped, distraught over the loss of her young son. Some say she was pushed. And yet others believe she was beckoned by the ghostly spirits that inhabit the house- once the site of a serial killer's grisly work.

My Review:
this is the first book in the Krewe of Hunters series. I had actually read #5 without knowing it was a serious. So for me this was a sort of back-tracking to the beginning.
I am so glad I did. The book shows how the team or "hunters" are formed. How each member has something special to contribute to the group. I love that it shows so much diversity and a somewhat realistic view of how they work together despite their individual backgrounds or beliefs. They pull together for the greater good and to help others. 
It's also mainly about politics and the behind-the-scenes type stuff. Great book before a big election(although it is fiction).
This book did have a few unexpected twists which made for a great mystery. I am currently on #2 and will continue to read and review this series.
Great new story-line for me to become obsessed with!
*5 stars*
