The 1940s: hard-boiled detectives and femmes fatale are box-office gold.
In one iconic scene, set in a deserted museum, the private eye arrives too late, and the buxom beauty is throttled by an ominous Egyptian priest.
Now: the Black Box Cinema immortalizes Hollywood's Golden Age in its gallery of film noir tributes. But the mannequin of that Egyptian priest is hardly lifeless. He walks and a young starlet dies a terrifying death. Movie mogul Eddie Archer's son is charged with the grisly murder. Eddie calls agent Sean Cameron, who specializes in irregular investigations. As part of an FBI paranormal forensics team, Cameron knows that nightmares aren't limited to the silver screen.
Working with special-effects artist Madison Darvil who has her own otherworldly gifts Cameron delves into the malevolent force animating more than one movie monster. - via GoodReads
I’m really sad that I didn’t enjoy The Unholy by Heather Graham as much as I did the others in this series. I wonder if some of that has to do with the audio narration.
If I’m being honest I didn’t get too much into the story. 1940s Hollywood just isn’t something I’m overly interested in. I really did enjoy Humphrey Bogart’s character in the story. I’ve never seen one of his movies but his character was probably my favorite.
One of the problems with the Krewe of Hunter books that I struggle with is the romance part. The great thing is that the books are fast paced and a lot of stuff happens in a short amount of time but that also includes the romance development.
This wasn’t the best in the series but it was still an enjoyable read. I hope to see more of Sean and Madison’s relationship in future books!
Note on nararration: For the mot part I enjoyed the narrator but a high pitched deep male voice will never sound like a woman’s.
