Book Details:

Title: Wait For Dark

Author: Kay Hooper

Publisher: Penguin Group/ Berkley

Publication Date: March 7th, 2017

Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Supernatural


I have been waiting for a new book from Kay Hooper, and the continuation of the series that centers around a special FBI team with extraordinary gifts. I am so happy, that I finally was able to read the last installment called” Wait For Dark”

While this novel is easily read on its own, I highly suggest that you begin the series with its first book. That said, it was nice to revisit two of my favorite people in the series, Hollis and Reese. Their progression, both personally as well as professionally was always deeply interesting to read about.

Again, the team is dealing with a villain that is anything but ordinary. The twists and turns left me breathless, and to be completely honest, I did not expect the suspect to be revealed as the person that it was at the end, even if it made so much sense then. I love those types of books, when I think I have figured out the plot points, but then it throws me a curveball, and leaves me with a “No kidding” moment, that is completely believable.

I, however, hope, that this will be not the conclusion of any stories centered around those two investigators, even if they found some closure. But, even if that would be the case, Kay Hooper’s series has enough of a stellar cast, that there are plenty more stories to tell and to explore.

I am already looking forward to the next one.

Wait For Dark is available on Amazon now
