The Forgotten - Heather Graham

The Forgotten

In South Florida, fortyish Maria Gomez mourns deeply the loss of her husband of twenty-five years Miguel.  Her family worries about her seemingly inability to connect with anyone or do anything.  However her kin never anticipated her murder even if Miguel was involved with the Barillo syndicate.

Brett Cody leads the investigation into the homicide of the grieving widow.  He focuses his inquiry on the mob since Miguel’s finger was found in a dolphin tank at Sea Life.  New Floridian and Sea Life employee Lara Mayhew (see The Silenced) assists Brett as her skill with dolphins may enable them to find other body parts in the nearby bay.  However when zombies attack those they loved when they were human (similar to The Strain), the FBI sends the Krewe to help on the case.

The latest Krewe of Hunters urban fantasy romantic police procedural (see The Betrayed, The Cursed and The Hexed) is a likable entry as Heather Graham adroitly deploys zombies and dolphins.  The cast except for the dolphins and the heroine (only for those who read her support role in The Silenced) are underdeveloped.  Still this is a refreshing entry since the leads are not Krewe, but deal with the paranormal and their love like seasoned hunters.
