Bishop/Special Crimes Unit. Random House Publishing Group. I am a big fan of Kay Hooper and this book does not disappoint. Hunting Fear is the first in what is sort of a series within a series. The broader series is about a special unit within the FBI, formed by Noah Bishop. All its members have some sort of psychic ability, including "seers" and "mediums". These agents use their abilities to hunt down the worst and most elusive criminals.

There's a new psychic on the scene, and he's ready for action: introducing Lucas Jordan, the latest addition to Noah Bishop's crackerjack Special Crimes Unit.

New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper delivers once again with this chilling novel in which the Special Crimes Unit sends a Haven operative undercover to catch a charismatic killer who promises his victims heaven in exchange for more than their lives. Young, vulnerable, attractive, Tessa Gray looked like the perfect victim.

From the very first book, from when Bishop started pulling together his special unit of psychics, I wondered if any of the agents would come from carnival or "professional psychic" backgrounds. I always wondered why people who already make a living using psychic abilities wouldn't be included in the unit. Here we find an answer.

Especially people who are involved in carnivals are seen as entertainers, actors. Their abilities aren't believed even by many of the people who pay them for their services. It's just a matter of amusement. Thinking of it that way, it makes sense why Bishop wouldn't want people with that background in his unit. Once you're already in the public eye as a perceived entertainer, it's hard to overcome that and be taken seriously as a law enforcement professional. Especially when a unit is just starting out, it's so important that they be careful and deliberate with their image. Once they have a solid background of successful cases, the idea can be revisited.

That's what we have here. Samantha is an incredibly talented psychic who happens to be working with a carnival. She and Lucas find themselves in a frustrating position of having to work together to try and figure out who is kidnapping people in this sleepy little town. It's not a criminal seeking ransom, because even paying never seems to save the victim.

In this seventh book of the series, I found the criminal story to be less compelling than many of the other books, but the personal relationships and in-depth look at the beginnings of the Special Crimes Unit more than made up for that. Once again, Kay Hooper has created a beautifully balanced story that left me eager to read the next book as soon as possible.

Having been disappointed in the last several Bishop books because of the incomplete nature of the romance part of the story, I was more pleased with this book where there is more attention paid to the relationship between the main characters. Unfortunately, however, this book continues the trend of the major plotline being that the two main characters are keeping secrets from one another and that is the tension between them. The suspense plot, however, was very good and unexpected.

THE STORY: Lucas Jordan works for the SCU and his talent is finding missing people by sensing their fear. When the SCU is brought into a case where a killer is kidnapping and murdering people after receiving ransoms, Lucas feels like a failure as he is unable to find and save the people. Lucas is obsessive and shuts out people. A serious complication that arises is a lover from his past who is also psychic.

Samantha Burke is precognitive and is working as a fortune teller at a traveling fair. When she tells people they are going to be kidnapped, they don't take her seriously. Several years ago, she fell for Lucas, but he treated her poorly and abandoned her. She has inserted herself into the investigations for reasons of her own that she refuses to disclose.
Lucas and Samantha are complicated and much of the time disagreeable. They both have strong walls that prevent a serious relationship between them. This book is all about how they break down those walls while hunting for a killer who is focused on Lucas.

OPINION: The suspense story was really good in this one. No one is safe which is normally not the case in these types of books. The combative and testy relationship between Lucas and Samantha is frustrating at times but also integral to the story. Samantha especially is difficult to like because she is purposely pushing Lucas which makes her character seem more abrasive than normal. I did feel that this book was more balanced and complete than the more recent books.

WORTH MENTIONING: Some nice cameo appearances by characters that have appeared in other books. Once again Bishop knows more than he reveals.

FINAL DECISION: This book is worth the read. The unique nature of the crimes and the unexpected decisions as to the victims made the book much more compelling. I kept turning the pages to find out what was going to happen with the killer and I wanted to see what the secrets were that Lucas and Samantha possessed. I didn't like the characters as much as the previous book, but I did like the plot much better.

CONNECTED BOOKS: HUNTING FEAR is the seventh book in the Bishop/SCU series but can be read as a standalone. It is also the first book of the internal Fear Trilogy.

STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars based on the suspense plot that kept me interested throughout.

Bestselling author Kay Hooper ratchets up the tension in this fast-paced thriller about a psychic profiler and his hunt for a seemingly invincible murderer. Profiler Lucas Jordan has been able to locate missing people by sensing their fear, the very fear that excites the killer he's trying to find. But there's a twist in the latest kidnapping -- a carnival psychic predicted the crime a week before it happened. Psychic "Zarina" turns out to be Samantha Burke, a woman from Lucas's past; warily, they team up to beat the killer to his next victim. As they get closer to the truth, Samantha's powers are stretched to the breaking point, and Lucas's success will depend on overcoming the emotional barriers that shut down their relationship in the first place.

I started reading Kay Hoopers Bishop SCU series books about a year ago, but I was reading them out of order. This was very frustrating because I wasn't familiar with the backgrounds of the many characters. The fact that FBI Agent Bishop heads up a team of psychic, claravoiyant, seers, and fortune tellers made it even harder to keep track of who has what ability and how they came to be in the unit. So I decided to acquire all of the books related to Agent Bishop and read them in order. Hunting Fear is the first in Hooper's second Bishop trilogies. In this book, the reader is given the background information on Lucas Jordan and Samantha Burke. Lucas is able to connect with people by their fears...the stronger the victim fear is the more in touch Lucas can be to help track the victim down. But Lucas has a past that won't let him use his abilities to their full extent and Samantha is there for many reasons, one of which is to force Lucas to open up his emotions so he can do his work more effectively. Samantha has also come back because she is a psychic and had a dream about the kinappings going on in Golden, North Carolina. She is there to try to change the outcome of her dream and to do that she has to help with the case and try to change events as much as possible.

The story starts very slowly and continues to go very slow. I felt that the book could have been tied up very neatly a full 50 pages before it was actually done. There was so much time spent in reading about each and every search of the victims. Time spent on talking out strategies to catch the killer. I think some of this detail could have been witheld to move the story along at a quicker pace. The last 4 chapters pick up a bit to the grand finale, but it just wasn't enough. I am glad to have read it becuase, like I said it gives me important background information. The use of the paranormal was within reasonal limits. I like stories that involve the use of paranormal to solve crimes, which is why I became interested in Hooper's books in the first place. I will continue to read through the books in order because I know from the novels that I have already read that Hooper's writing does become better and and the plotlines in others are much more fast paced and more interesting. 3 stars for me.
