Brenda and I are reading this one together!

From Goodreads:  Her eyes are wide open. Her lips parted as if to speak. Her dead body frozen in the ice…She is not the only one.

When a young boy discovers the body of a woman beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park, Detective Erika Foster is called in to lead the murder investigation.

The victim, a beautiful young socialite, appeared to have the perfect life. Yet when Erika begins to dig deeper, she starts to connect the dots between the murder and the killings of three prostitutes, all found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water around London.

What dark secrets is the girl in the ice hiding?

As Erika inches closer to uncovering the truth, the killer is closing in on Erika.

The last investigation Erika led went badly wrong… resulting in the death of her husband. With her career hanging by a thread, Erika must now battle her own personal demons as well as a killer more deadly than any she’s faced before. But will she get to him before he strikes again?

Haven (Bishop/Special Crimes Unit #13) by Kay Hooper

Haven (Bishop/Special Crimes Unit, #13)Haven by Kay Hooper

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Date read:  November 30 – December 2, 2016

3.75 stars

Kay Hooper has been one of my favourite authors for some time now. HAVEN is a fun, fast-paced, quick and easy to follow along read with a good plot. Although, the characters weren’t as well developed as I would have liked and the physic aspects of the novel didn’t really give me any satisfaction. I needed more of Bishop and his Agents! Usually I get really drawn into the characters and excited with all the different aspects of the supernatural within Kay Hooper novels so that is why it didn’t get a 5 star rating from me.

I did like that she added an Agent Bios and Psychic Terms & Abilities to the back of the book which was helpful in refreshing my memory on some of the recurring characters.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series as I do love Haven, Bishop & his Psychic Agents.

You would easily be able to read this one without reading any of her other novels.

There are some good twists and turns which make it a fairly good suspenseful mystery in not a lot of graphic detail.
