Just outside Estes Park, Colorado, historian Scarlet Barlow is the Conway Ranch Museum curator. She is organizing and renovating the historical site; a place where a married couple was murdered just after the Civil War ended. Finding corpses places Scarlet’s work on hold as the police investigation supersedes her project even while she is the only suspect.
When her camera shows photos of the dead that Scarlet did not take and quickly vanished without a trace, and statues talk to her; the historian knows she needs specialized help to bring down a recreationist serial killer. Scarlet contacts her former husband FBI Krewe of Hunters Agent Diego McCullough. Dropping everything Diego heads to the Rockies.
The latest Krewe of Hunters urban fantasy romantic police procedural (see The Betrayed and The Forgotten) is a marvelous mystical mystery starring a recurring support player and his ex in the lead roles. The locale contains an interesting history that enhances the paranormal plot; as Heather Graham authors her best Krewe entry in quite a while.
