Overview

The Unspoken by Heather Graham



1898: Bound for Chicago, the freighter Jerry McGuen goes down in Lake Michigan, taking with it every man aboard. But what other fate could befall a vessel carrying the ill-gotten sarcophagus of an Egyptian sorcerer?

Now: A veteran diver and "ghost ship" expert is exploring the legendary wreck for a documentary. He dies inexplicably inside the freighter's main saloon. Then another diver is killed and panicked rumors rise like bubbles from the lake: ancient demons have awakened below!

The expedition's beleaguered financier calls paranormal investigator Katya Sokolov to Chicago to save the film—and perhaps some innocent lives. Along with media forensics guru Will Chan, Kat plumbs the depths of an evil that may date back to the time of the Pharaohs. But some secrets are best drowned in the seas of the past.…

The Unspoken by Heather Graham is the seventh novel in the Krewe of Hunter series. All of these tales can be read as a standalone. Each case has paranormal elements, which require the skills of a special unit of the FBI, known as the Krewe of Hunters. Agents Katya Sokolpv and Will Chan head up a case involving a sunken treasure, a curse and several unexplained deaths. This was a fun, suspenseful read as they worked to find a murderer and stop a mummies curse. In 1898 the freighter, Jerry McGuen, sank on Lake Michigan taking every man on board and untold treasures with it. The treasure contained the sarcophagus of an Egyptian sorcerer and some say his curse is what caused the McGuen to sink. For over 100 years men have searched for the ship and its treasures in vain; that is until now. When a diving expert and ghost ship expert dies while exploring the wreck people begin crying it’s the curse. Wanting to preserve the sight and protect his team the expedition leader calls in the special FBI team known as the Krewe of Hunters. Jackson Crow sends Katya Sokolpv to Chicago ahead of the team to investigate. She will meet up with Virginia Krewe of Hunter’s team member Will Chan. They meet at the morgue and the tale that unfolds is suspenseful and mysterious as more dead bodies appear and Katya begins dreaming of a watery death. I love the characters that Graham creates. I have met both Katya and Will in previous novels and was aware of their special skill sets. She is a forensic pathologist who can speak to the dead. He is an illusionist specialist who can work magic with cameras. I liked Katya she is smart, sassy and knows her job. Will can be headstrong, is downright smexy and driven when on a case. The attraction Katya feels to Will is immediate and it completely unnerves her because she cannot stand him. He immediately gets on the wrong side of the medical examiner and acts like he is in the lead. Watching the two of them work together and tiptoe around their attraction to each other was hilarious. I quickly became invested in them. We get to see the rest of Katya’s team when they show up to assist. Graham provides us with plenty of suspects from treasure experts to salvage hunters. Oh and did I mention ghosts and an Egyptian sorcerer? I really enjoyed the mystery Graham provided in this tale. I have always found Egyptian burial sites and the curses supposedly attached to them to be fascinating. She gives us a slew of suspects, several unexplained murders and clues that seem to indicate that the Egyptian sorcerer himself is involved in the murders. Filled with danger and suspense the mystery had me enthralled as I tried to piece the clues together. The romance between these headstrong agents was delightful, and I loved watching Will's feelings for Katya evolve. While there is sexual content, it is mostly implied and I found it to be both sweet and hot. I easily consumed this in an evening and deeply enjoyed it. I want to thank Harlequin/Mira and netGalley for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.

Finally! I was beginning to think she had forgotten about Will, or just didn't view him as important. It was a great mystery, but the romance was kind of a dud. One minute they are fighting, and the next planning on forever with nothing inbetween. I would also have like a little more background on Katya and Will. As always, Heather Graham gives us an amazing historical mystery, with just a touch of paranormal. Absolutely one if my favorite authors.

Heather Graham has a way of never running out of ideas of these awesome stories. From the minute you pick up this books, and all of her other books, she has a way of keeping your interest from the 1st page to the last page

This book is quite good. Finally the characters are becoming developed and their personalities are better understood. The biggest downside is the incorrect use of saxitoxin. It is not from lobster and does not cause anaphylaxix as a cause of death. Saxitoxin poisioning was described but named anaphylaxis. This is very distracting while reading to see something so obviously incorrect. Besides the errors already mentioned this is a good story involving the Texas Krew

Heather Graham is just plain fun to read. Ill admit at times you are thinking this is impossible. I dont read romance novels but enjoy the personal when in conjunction with the paranormal. I have yet to read a Graham book where I have not been entertained. My husband wont even let me start a Graham book before bed because I cant stop once I start. Being a huge fan of the old mystery, thriller or horror I should not like any of Heather Graham's books. Yet I do. I have learned in my old age there is more out there. Im too darn old to try roller blading but not a new genre of book reading. Her books are paranormal romance I have been told. I think they are just a whole bunch of good writing and fun!

In Graham’s paranormal mystery novel, a veteran diver and “ghost ship” expert dies while exploring a legendary wreck for a documentary. Without explanation, another diver dies and panic begins to spread. Rumors about ancient demons begin to circulate, terrifying everyone in their wake. The expedition’s financier calls paranormal investigator Katya Sokolov to Chicago to investigate the situation. Teaming with media forensics guru Will Chan, Kat plumages the depths of an evil that may or may not date back to the time of the Pharaohs. An excellent addition to the Krewe of Hunters series. I couldn’t put it down until the last page!
