1800s. San Antonio, Texas: In room 207 at the Longhorn Saloon, in the long shadow of the Alamo itself, a woman renowned for her beauty was brutally murdered. Her killer was never found.
One year ago: In that same historic room, another woman vanished without a trace. Her blood was everywhere… but her body was never recovered. Now: In the last month, San Antonio has become a dumping ground for battered bodies. All young women, many of them long missing, almost all forgotten. Until now.
Texas Ranger Logan Raintree cannot sit by and let his city’s most vulnerable citizens be slain. So when he is approached to lead a brand-new group of elite paranormal investigators working the case, he has no choice but to accept the challenge. And with it, his powerful ability to commune with the dead. Among Logan’s new team is Kelsey O’Brien, a U.S. marshal known for her razor-sharp intuition and a toughness that belies her delicate exterior. Kelsey has been waiting all her life to work with someone who can understand her ability to “see” the past unfolding in the present. Now she has her chance.
The case they are working on together is that of several females that have been uncovered in the surrounding area of the Alamo and Longhorn Saloon and Inn. As they uncover more evidence it all points back to the diamond. It appears that all of these missing females claimed that they were psychic and the killer has been using them to try and get in contact with the dead woman in 207 to find out where the diamond is located. Now Sandy has gone missing and feared that the killer may have her.
This is my first foray with Heather Graham. It was a pretty good story, and I would be willing to give her another go. The writing was pretty smooth aside from a few glitches where a turn of events was suddenly started and I had to go back to the beginning of the paragraph to get my bearings. Suddenly I was across town or with another part of the group. I was a little disappointed with the few love scenes. There were a few spelling mistakes but few and far between, so I’m going to give her another whirl in the sometime future. I don’t know, maybe being that she has so many previous published works I was expecting more.
PS: You might find Kelsey annoying
