Lara Mayhew calls her BFF newbie FBI Agent Meg Murray at 2:30 AM to tell her not to worry about her; as she is leaving DC to return home to Richmond.  Ignoring Lara’s voice mail; Meg worries about her friend for abruptly leaving town in the middle of the night but is also compounding her concern for Lara is her failure to pick up her cell.  Meg fears for Lara as her buddy seems to have vanished.

Using his communicating with the dead skill, experienced Krewe of Hunter Agent Matt Bosworth investigates the serial mutilation of women.  His inquiry into stopping a deranged killer entangles him with rookie Krewe Agent Murray’s search for Lara.  They team up unaware that the psychopath targets Meg next.

The latest Krewe of Hunters urban fantasy police procedural (see The Betrayed, The Cursed and The Hexed) is an engaging entry starring two interesting Feds whose respective paranormal abilities seem genuine (wonder about the skills of any offspring).  The deranged serial killer seems more like a weak caricature, but the cats and mouse (and dog) hunt makes for a solid Krewe thriller.
