Sometimes evil lingers so close, you can feel i.Seattle police sketch artist Maggie Barnes has an extraordinary gift. She listens as traumatized crime victims describe their ordeals - and then uses those horrifying recollections to draw dead-on sketches of the assailants. Some cops think Maggie is telepathic, that she can actually enter the victims’ minds. Only Maggie knows the truth behind her rare talent. and she isn’t telling. But her secret may be exposed when a madman seizes Seattle in his terrifying grip. He abducts women and blinds them, leaving them barely alive

Nevertheless, the romance is somewhat contrived and there could have been more clues to the killer's identity. The climax is compelling and the resolution very satisfying (one of the more unique I have encountered in this genre). It should be note that the book contains grisly details and gory descriptions so it is not for the weak of heart.

One of the scariest things for many people is to be completely out of control of their lives. To be so at the mercy of others - particularly when those others wish to do them harm. When people do their worst, some of us survive, though, and come out of the experience very much changed. Hollis is one of those survivors. Dragging herself by the tips of her fingers from the depths of hell, to be found and taken back to safety. But she will never see the world the same again. Her would-be killer made certain of that when he took her eyes from her.

This entire book was breathtaking for me. It begins with such a hard-hitting scene and continues to wow and surprise all the way to the very end. By this fourth book in the series, I somewhat expected to see mostly repeat characters and recycled plot lines, but Kay Hooper is much too good a writer for that. This book was astounding. The reader meets new members of the SCU team, and there are such unexpected twists in the story that I never once felt like, "Oh, I knew that was coming."

The characters are so well-developed, they feel like they could be people I might meet any day. They are at the same time amazing and ordinary, with common complaints, fears, desires, and incredible abilities and strengths. I was utterly wowed. I have to say that Kay Hooper is officially one of my favorite authors.

Maggie Barnes has many special gifts. She is an empath and by interviewing victims she can make a sketch for the police to find and arrest criminals.

John Garrett is a successful businessman who doesn't believe in the supernatural but when his sister Christine commits suicide because she has been raped and tortured by "the blindfold rapist' John goes to Maggie to get answers.

Seattle 2001 Hollis Templeton is the 4th victim of the "Blindfold Rapist." He not only raped her but took out her eyes and even though the doctors have put in another set she doesn't have the will to see. While she is in the hospital she hears a young woman's voice who calls herself Annie. Who Annie is you will find out later.

Strange coincidence; in 1934 in Seattle and in 1894 there are a strings of rape/ murders of 8 young women that are either blindfolded or blinded and they look like the 2001 victims.

TOUCHING EVIL marks the point where the Bishop series becomes more Paranormal Suspense than Paranormal Romantic Suspense. There is a romance involved, but there is no real relationship development between the characters. Because this is a change from prior books, I think it is important to note this change. I miss the more intense relationships of Hooper's earlier books, but I can accept her new direction.

THE STORY: Maggie Barnes is a remarkable police sketch artist. She is in the middle of a horrendous case. Someone is kidnapping, blinding and raping women. Maggie has been working with the victims to create a sketch of the suspect. People who work with Maggie know that she has something beyond talent. Some suspect that she is has the ability to enter the victim's mind and see what happened to them.

Maggie meets John Garrett whose sister was a victim of the madman. John doesn't believe in paranormal talents and yet he is surrounded by people who possess them. John is working alongside and in a parallel investigation to discover what happened to his sister. When he meets Maggie, he may have to admit that there is something beyond what he believed.

OPINION: This book has a very creepy feel. The crime is horrendous and Maggie's connection with the victim's is very personal that the descriptions are unsettling. I also did like the relationship between Maggie and John even though it is secondary to the suspense portion of the book. I liked seeing John have to reassess his skepticism and Hooper does a great job of slowly revealing the extent of Maggie's talent.

I have two problems with this book. First, the first 150 pages of this book are very confusing with the introduction of numerous characters without much context. The switching between the viewpoints of these characters makes it difficult to feel any connection to any of the characters for a long time. While some of these characters make appearances in later books, this book is pretty confusing because of it. Second, I didn't like the ultimate twist of who the killer was. The paranormal aspect of who the killer was and his connection with Maggie was not satisfying to me because there was little context to the twist. After the big build up over Maggie having to redeem her prior mistake, I didn't feel that there was enough exposition regarding that past in order to have the entire plot revolve around it.

WORTH MENTIONING: This book introduces many of the characters that will be important in the subsequent Bishop/Special Crimes Unit novels. There is also a small cameo appearance by Bishop himself.

FINAL DECISION: This book is worth reading for fans of the series. I find that these books work better as a whole than individual books. Often, I cannot distinguish between the individual stories once I put the book down, but I tend to enjoy the story as I read it.

CONNECTED BOOKS: This is the fourth book in the Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series.

STAR RATING: I give this book 3.5 stars. I enjoyed it while I was reading it (once I sorted out the characters, but there is nothing demanding a re-read.

If you like Kay Hooper's Bishop novels, you'll enjoy this one.

My gripe is with the publisher. If you want to charge the same price for the Kindle version as you do for the paperback, at least have the courtesy to invest in the formatting. So, you didn't pay for printing, you didn't pay for shipping to retailers, and apparently you couldn't be bothered to pay to have this version formatted correctly. Big win for you, but not so great for the reader. There are no spaces between scenes, which is confusing. I love my kindle, and I'm happy to pay for the books I want, but the lack of effort in this case means I'll be borrowing the rest of this looooong series from the library. Just to be clear, that's not Amazon's fault, but they might want to provide some oversight for publishers trying to make a quick extra buck at the readers' expense.
