How do you make peace with the dead if the dead aren't ready to forgive? In "New York Times "bestselling author Kay Hooper's new novel, the answer lies in the twisting shadows of a small town, and its secrets yet unearthed...
When Deacon James's younger sister Melanie calls him, terrified, he goes to her aid in the small Georgia town of Sociable. What he finds is a scared young woman in the grip of what she insists is a paranormal nightmare--and murder. Two local men have been killed under mysterious circumstances. And Melanie is the prime suspect.
Trinity Nichols left a high-stress job for quiet, small-town life. But news of the murders has left her--and the town--on edge, especially when there is nothing remotely ordinary about how the men died. And her investigation is yielding more than she bargained for, including a group of strangers who have descended on Sociable, some with abilities Trinity finds hard to believe, and agendas she refuses to trust. For some reason, they know a lot more than they should about what's happening in town. And what's happening is growing stranger by the minute.
Now Trinity, Deacon, and this odd band of FBI agents must work together to solve a series of disturbances so incredible that Trinity, and the town of Sociable, will be changed forever. She just isn't certain who--or what--will be left standing when it's all over.

In bestseller’s Hooper’s middling 15th Bishop/Special Crimes Unit novel (after 2013’s Hostage), Noah Bishop sends two agents, medium Hollis Templeton and telepath Reese DeMarco, to investigate the disappearance and murder of several pairs of young female hikers on the trails of Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, while SCU agent and empath Deacon James arrives in the town of Sociable, Ga., to support his sister, Melanie, who is distressed by the strangely clean murder of her ex-boyfriend for which she’s an obvious suspect. A silver cross left in the mouths of the hikers and the ex-boyfriend links what initially appear to be unrelated cases, and points the team toward an old enemy whom they thought had been defeated. The SCU time line and agent bios at the end will help readers who may be confused, but those unfamiliar with earlier installments won’t feel the full impact of the agents’ personal development or the residual danger from the revisited killer. Agent: Eileen Fallon, Fallon Literary Agency. (Sept.)
