Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Hooper (Sense of Evil; Touching Evil; etc.) pits a team of psychic special agents against a diabolical serial killer in the first installment of her new Fear trilogy. Kidnapping would-be victims in Golden, N.C., the murderer sets up a torturous ending for them and then dares the lawmen to arrive in time for a last-second rescue. The primary agent assigned to stop the carnage is Lucas Jordan, who leads the investigation with a unique team of clairvoyant agents. He also gets a significant assist from Samantha Burke, a former lover who ends up on the case when she arrives in Golden working as a sideshow psychic for a traveling carnival. The initial chapters are rather boilerplate as Hooper focuses on the team's futile efforts to save local victims, but the action picks up when the murders turn personal and the kidnapper abducts a cop and then drowns her in a glass tank. His next would-be victim is Golden's sheriff. At the novel's climax, Jordan must get past his emotions to access his own psychic talent when the kidnapper turns his gaze on Samantha Burke. Hooper does a nice job of keeping the psychic material credible, and the murderer's constant shifts in methodology provide a welcome series of surprising plot twists. This is a solid entry in the annals of paranormal crime-solving.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am an avid Kay Hooper fan- because she is always able to keep me guessing until the very end...and she didn't disappoint me this time.

In this book, Lucas Jordan of the Special Crimes Unit is called in to deal with a serial kidnapper, who puts his victims in hazardous contraptions that will kill them eventually if they are not found in time...and so far- no one has gotten out alive.

In true Hooper style this book is fast paced, and intriguing. And as always there is a paranormal thread that ties the story together. The serial kidnapper is playing a game of life and death with Jordan, and so far the kidnapper is winning. Lucas Jordan of the SCU is experiencing a paranormal block that is only allowing him reach the kidnapped victims to late. The only question is can Luke overcome the block before someone else is killed.

Hooper incorporates the paranormal, romance, and lots of suspense, that kept me turning the pages! Her characters are not run of the mill heros, but real people with real problems and issues- which makes them interesting.

It is going to be a long wait until Summer 2005 when the next book is scheduled to come out.

Ms. Hooper is one of the best when it comes to the paranormal suspense genre. She has kicked off a new series with "Hunting Fear" and if this is any indication of how good this series is going to be...well, lets just say you won't want to miss a single title.

Bishop is back with his crime fighting team that uses more than police investingation techiques to catch the bad guy. In Ms. Hoopers latest Lucas Jordan is tracking a serial kidnapper that takes the victim, askes for the ransom, and than kills the victim all without leaving any clues behind. Luke as been on his trail for eighteen months when the case takes a turn and becomes very personal. Now the clock is ticking and his past has now caught up to his future but is he strong enough to deal with the fear that lives inside of him?

Samantha Burke has not had an easy life. She lives day to day working as a seer for a carnival and it's one night at the carnivale that she picks up an item and has a vision. She knows that she must face her past and that means dealing with Lucas Jordan. But that's okay because she has the strength to do what she must in order to stop a serial killer that hunts a person's fear.

This was a strong paranormal romance that fans of Ms. Hooper will inhale. This is a complex story with equally complex characters. Readers will be drawn to both Lucas and Sam for very different reasons. Their chemistry is intense but will not overshadow the main storyline and that is catching a killer before he has a chance to kill again. I highly recommend Ms. Hooper as well as her latest effort.

Format: Hardcover
Lucas Jordan, FBI agent and profiler comes to Clayton County, North Carolina to track and capture a notorious serial kidnapper, whose has been on a killing spree for 18 months. Noah Bishop recruited Jordan five years ago to work for a Special Crimes Unit of the FBI. Lucas had been working a kidnapping case in Clayton County with the help of Samantha Blake. Not by coincidence, he encounters once again Samantha Blake, a seer, "Madame Zarina" working for a traveling carnival in Golden, North Carolina. Sam connects with people by having psychic visions by her sense of touch. Lucas in contrast connects with people in danger by their sense of fear. Sheriff Wyatt Metcalf and his staff are working the kidnapping case of Mitch Callahan as the FBI arrives on the scene. Wyatt Metcalf and Police Officer Lindsay Graham are lovers when they're off duty. Time quickly runs out on two victims. Lucas and his partner Jaylene are too late to rescue Mitch Callahan and Police Officer Lindsay Graham. Working together to the best of their psychic and non-psychic abilities, Lucas and Sam find a third victim in time. The killer seems to enjoy being one step ahead of Lucas. Sam predicts that Lucas needs her to win this "game" as they believe the killer likes to perceive it. Clayton County is the perfect place with miles of uninhabited land for these crimes to take place. The Carnival after Dark serves as a distraction to the residents of Golden. However with publicity from working the case, Sam develops a notoriety that attracts the killer. Hunting Fear keeps you on the edge of your seat, guessing and hoping they will find the killer before its too late.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've heard a little about Kay Hooper so I selected one of her books. After reading my first Hooper novel I have to say, I'm very impressed.

Hunting fear is based on a special unit FBI officer Lucas Jordan. He has a peculiar psychic ability, he can sense fear. He is part of a psychic FBI unit know as Bishop/Special Crimes Unit.

In Hunting Fear he comes across a serial kidnapper that gets the ransom and then kills the victim anyway. The killer seems to have heard of Lucas Jordan and in a way challenges him to a twisted game in which he kidnaps people and has Jordan try to get to them before he kills them.

This book is excellently written with an intriguing storyline and some great suspense, highly reccomended. I will definately read Chill of Fear, another Bishop/Special Crimes Unit novel.
