Overview

The Unholy by Heather Graham



The 1940s: Hard-boiled detectives and femmes fatale are box-office gold. In one iconic scene, set in a deserted museum, the private eye arrives too late, and the buxom beauty is throttled by an ominous Egyptian priest.

Now: The Black Box Cinema immortalizes Hollywood's Golden Age in its gallery of film noir tributes. But the mannequin of that Egyptian priest is hardly lifeless.

He walks—and a young starlet dies a terrifying death.

Movie mogul Eddie Archer's son is charged with the grisly murder. Eddie calls agent Sean Cameron, who specializes in irregular investigations. As part of an FBI paranormal forensics team, Cameron knows that nightmares aren't limited to the silver screen.

Working with special-effects artist Madison Darvil—who has her own otherworldly gifts—Cameron delves into the malevolent force animating more than one movie monster.…

In Graham’s paranormal suspense novel, movie mogul Eddie Archer’s son is charge with murder. Eddie falls back on his friendship with agent Sean Cameron, who specializes in irregular investigations. Now a member of an FBI paranormal forensics team, Cameron knows that evil exists. Teaming with special-effects artist Madison Darvil, another gifted individual, they investigate the malevolent force hard at work at the Black Box Cinema. A fast-paced and suspenseful story that will give readers chills as well as keeping them guessing until the very end. As always, Graham has outdone herself again.

The Unholy is the sixth novel in Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunter series. Each of her novels follows a special unit of the FBI that solves difficult cases utilizing paranormal gifts. All of her novels can be read as a standalone. They each deal with one member of the team, their love interest and a new case. Unholy was a fun read involving a closed room murder, the ghost of Humphrey Bogart and an old Hollywood Cinema. I quickly became swept up in this tale, and was surprised when the murderer was revealed. The tale begins when a murder occurs at the Black Box Cinema and the owner’s son is arrested for the heinous crime. Owner, Eddie Archer pulls every favor he has in Los Angeles to help clear his son’s name. He contacts former special-effects employee and friend Sean Cameron. Sean is now a member of the FBI’s special unit; Krewe of Hunters. He and the rest of this unusual team have recently finished their FBI training. Sean arrives a day ahead of the team, and Archie introduces him to Madison Darvil. She is a trusted employee and special effects artist. He puts Madison in charge of showing Sean around the cinema. The tale that unfolds was both delightful and creepy as we searched for clues to solve this murder. Sean Cameron is a sweetheart. He is smexy, protective and sensitive. His back-story will delight you, and I found him to be completely swoon-worthy. He is a talented special-effects artist, and one heck of an FBI agent. His training and special abilities help him as he works to clear a man’s name, protect Madison and prevent another murder. Madison Darvil is talented, kind, head strong and lives with the ghost of Bogart. Yep, movie icon Humphrey Bogart watches television and chats with Madison in her bungalow! Their interaction was hilarious. At the age of six her best friend died and appeared as a ghost. She shared this experience with her mother. That experience taught her to never talk about her gift..to anyone, ever! While happy in her career she is lonely. Living with this secret and having Bogart around (who likes to sit in the living room when she entertains perceptive dates) doesn’t do much to help her non-existent love life. The rest of the Krewe team is there, but they work strictly on the case as the tale focuses on the murder, Sean and Madison. Graham gives us a great array of characters as suspects from an actor to a costume designer. She provides characters that scream guilty; like Archie newest wife. I wanted to slap this woman and then turn around and slap the loveable Archie for falling for a woman like this..eek gads! The case is a good one. It features a favorite mystery classic; a murder within a closed room. I loved the setting of the old movie theater and the back history to the old black and white movies. I found the whole thing intriguing. Grahams shows us the killer in costume and it is quite frightening. She reveals bits and pieces of the murderer’s psyche. As Cameron, the team and Madison piece together clues I became completely enthralled with the tale. I pieced together parts and totally failed on the masked killer. The romance is secondary to the mystery which is one aspect I appreciate in Graham’s tales. I get great suspense and a couple who I end up believing in and rooting for. There is some sexual content in this novel, but Graham has a talent for providing heated scenes that are all implied.

I love Heather Grahams book but even for her the Humprey Bogar ghost was a little bit to cheesey for me . I had a hard time getting into the story plot or even reading it for that matter the character was just to hard to over come and to distracting for me.

You will never be disappointed when you pick up any of Heather Graham's novels. This was another great Krewe story. I cannot get enough of these books. Love, suspense and a supernatural twist will keep you enthralled with all of her stories.

I read this book and loved every moment. The story line kept me guessing and at time put me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what whoud happen next. Also I enjoyed the romance in the book. The main characters were fasinating right from the beginning. Heather Graham is a terrific writer. Whatever she writes I will read.

I LOVE Heather Graham, I really do. I would put her in my top 5 authors, no question, and I would rate her average novels 4 1/2 stars to 5 normally. But seriously, the ghost of Bogie. Ugh. A bit player, ok, a made up starlet, sure, but a real life actor and having him say "kid" after almost every sentence is about more then I can take. Sooooooo cheesy! What on earth happened that her, her editors, her book writers groups, whoever else that read this prior to publishing and NO ONE thought it a horrible idea? Condidering I am only on the 2nd book of the new krewe, I have my fingers crossed the other two books left redeem this one. I would have liked it if not for that awful part of the story line. Thank God this wasn't the first book I read of hers, because I would have never picked up another! It is that outlandish to me!!!

This is a great book from a great series. I am a Heather Graham fan. I enjoy getting to know her characters and in her series I enjoy the way she does a focus on 2 characters and still includes "old friends". Stories are well written and fun to read.

Good writer. I like all of her books. In this one we get a visit from Humphry Bogart. If you have seen any of his movies you know this will be good. If you don't know who  he is you should watch some old movies, and just know he fits rght in this story.  I hate figuring out who did it before story is finished and Heather Graham never disapoints.

This was a light read, and had a few surprising twists and turns. The characters could use some more development, but the plot was intriguing and original enough to hold my interest. The pacing falls apart at the end. The writing is okay, but not more than that. Setting and plot are great, but the rest feels uninspired. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have read all the "Krewe" books and practticaly all of Graham's other books. I was very disapointed with the ghost of Bogie, why? The same idea could have been conveyed with the ghost of a "made up" film noir actor, its called imagination. I felt the plot was canned. Maybe its time to move on to an entirely new series
