Publisher's Weekly Review

In the plodding first of a new psychic crime fighter trilogy from bestseller Hooper (Sleeping with Fear), Noah Bishop of the FBI's Special Crimes Unit is now supervising an all-female team of civilian contractors known as Haven. Together, they track a serial killer who has moved his maniacal atrocities from Boston to a small town outside Atlanta, where he continues to kidnap, torture and kill women. Psychic Dani Justice, who can often predict the future through her dreams, becomes obsessed with the case. The investigation of the crimes gets lost amid lots of psychic babble by members of Haven, hand-wringing by the local police, and frequent snapshots of the killer with his victims. An abrupt ending doesn't deliver on any of the trauma and drama that Justice's dreams have predicted, though presumably readers will get satisfaction on that score in the next entry in the series.

Booklist Review

A new paranormal thriller from Hooper centers on a special group of psychics who help the FBI's Special Crimes Unit. They gather in Venture, Georgia, to track down a serial killer who preys on women and may himself be a psychic. He has killed in Boston, and nobody knows why he has now moved to Venture, except as a lure to the group of psychics. Dani, a member of the group who is from Venture, returns home to her twin sister and Marc, now the town's sheriff and a former lover. Dani has never been totally comfortable with her premonition dreams or their possible interpretations for her loved ones. Her renewed connections with her sister and Marc, however, give her the strength to draw on her full powers at last to help catch the killer in a surprisingly funny ending involving an elusive mastermind and a budding relationship between one of the psychics and a sheriff's deputy. A good read for fans of other serial-killer books and the TV show, Criminal Minds.--Chelton, Mary K. Copyright 2007 Booklist


Library Journal Review

When a serial killer picks off a senator's son, the FBI's Special Crimes Unit is immediately brought in. But so is a rival civilian organization, started up years ago by the senator. That's double trouble. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
