For Brodie McFadden and Dakota McCoy, the Christmas holiday should be simply magical.
They’ve made the decision on their wedding—Christmas Eve out in central Virginia at the newly renovated historic lodge belonging to old friends. As many members of the Krewe who can show up will, Kody’s friends and family will be up from Key West, and while Brodie’s diva mom and patient dad are dead, they’ll still make an appearance.
It will be wonderful.
But then, chopping wood and waiting for Kody to arrive, Brodie hears a police-bulletin on the airwaves about a large white rabbit in a gas mask carrying a machete—correction! A man in a large white rabbit costume, etcetera!
Driving through the snow-covered countryside, Kody has little on her mind other than the festivities about to take place—until she almost runs right into the rabbit. His warning for her not to move forward proves to be solid when an explosion rears through the road.
The rabbit proves to be Captain Lynch, a soldier suffering from PTSD, and he’s escaped from a nearby hospital.
But who is telling the truth? The rabbit—or the doctors?
Brodie and Kody must discover the truth if there is to be a wedding—and to bring back Peace and Goodwill to Man!
There are two novella holiday tales that connect to the McFadden Brothers trilogy in the overall Krewe of Hunters series.

The novellas take place after the conclusion of Echoes of Evil. The titles within the main trilogy include — Fade to Black – Pale as Death – Echoes of Evil.
Something lurks beneath the surface…
Brodie McFadden is supposed to be on vacation, getting some sunshine and deciding if he wants to join his brothers and the Krewe of Hunters, a special paranormal investigation unit of the FBI. But a diving excursion with an old navy buddy to a historic shipwreck uncovers a crime scene—and the corpse is new.
Museum curator Dakota “Kody” McCoy just wants her Key West culture festival to succeed. She’s always had a deep connection to her home, including being regularly haunted by some of the resident ghosts. Then, in the middle of a performance, a beloved local musician drops dead. It seems accidental, but Kody isn’t so sure.
Brodie thinks the recent deaths are linked, and he needs help from Kody. Something about her festival is dangerous. And the threat is creeping ever closer. Has she uncovered a treasure from the past that someone will kill for?
Echoes of Evil is the 26th title in the ongoing Krewe of Hunters series. It is the third story of a trilogy within the Krewe of Hunters featuring the McFadden brothers. The titles within the trilogy include — Fade to Black – Pale as Death – Echoes of Evil.
From the dark depths of Hollywood’s past
The crime scene is horrific: the corpse of a young actress drained of blood and cut in two. LAPD Detective Sophie Manning’s new case is high-profile and difficult—there’s no evidence to work with. And it’s a disturbing echo of the infamous Black Dahlia killing. Sophie is burning the candle at both ends, desperate to catch the murderer before he strikes again when she starts to experience inexplicable visits…from ghosts.
Bruce McFadden has a particular talent that can help Sophie—he can speak with the dead. As a consultant for the FBI’s paranormal team, the Krewe of Hunters, he’s been tasked with Sophie’s case and they’re forced to partner up. But Sophie doesn’t want his help, and she doesn’t want to share his peculiar skill. And she certainly isn’t ready for love, despite Bruce’s attentions.
As the killer taunts the police, Sophie and Bruce will discover that the threat is closer to home than they’d ever realized. Working side by side is the only way they’ll stop this deadly sequel.
Pale as Death is the 25th title in the ongoing Krewe of Hunters series. It is the second story of a trilogy within the Krewe of Hunters featuring the McFadden brothers. The titles within the trilogy include — Fade to Black – Pale as Death – Echoes of Evil.
Where dreams go to die…
Starring in a cult TV show was a blessing for Marnie Davante, especially now that her former fame could support her future dream of starting a children’s theater. So she’ll work the convention circuit. But then a costar is brazenly murdered in front of her. With a killer who vanishes into thin air with seemingly inhuman skill, and strange events plaguing Marnie, she feels she can’t even trust her own senses.
Although his dear departed parents were famous actors, PI Bryan McFadden is about as far from Hollywood as you can get. The former military man is reluctant to get involved in such a bizarre case, but it quickly becomes obvious that Marnie is in grave danger, and he is compelled to help. It’s unclear if the killer is an obsessed fan or something more sinister. Could the show’s cast be cursed? How can Bryan keep Marnie safe when it becomes apparent there’s a force determined to make this her final curtain call?
Fade to Black is the 24th title in the ongoing Krewe of Hunters series. It is the first story of a trilogy within the Krewe of Hunters featuring the McFadden brothers. The titles within the trilogy include — Fade to Black – Pale as Death – Echoes of Evil.
Some things you can’t forget.
A body hanging from the infamous History Tree unraveled their teenage love. Now Maura Antrim is again tangled up with Brock McGovern.
Twelve years later, they’re back where that murder occurred—where Brock had been arrested and then released, where Maura had run, too scared to stand by his side.
But with two women missing, and Brock now an FBI agent, Maura is determined to help. Together, they’ll have to confront a threat that never died and see if their passion has withstood the test of time.
As a teenager, Vickie Preston survived an attack by a serial killer. That was the first time she saw a ghost. Now the city of Boston is being terrorized—someone is kidnapping women and burying them alive, but cruelly leaving a glimmer of hope for the authorities by sending a clue about their location. Vickie is pulled into the investigation when her name is mentioned in one of the notes. And as a historian, she has the knowledge to help uncover the graves the killer known as the Undertaker is choosing. But she also has another, unique lead: the spirit of one of the victims is appearing to her in dreams.
Special Agent Griffin Price is on the case for the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI’s special unit for paranormal investigators. He feels particularly protective of Vickie, since their shared past is connected to the threat that currently surrounds them. With the killer accelerating his plans, time is running out for more victims hidden around the city. Vickie is becoming closer with Griffin, but she’s getting too close to the danger, and every breath could be her last.
Dying Breath is the 21st novel in the Krewe of Hunters series.

Meg is assigned to work with special agent Matt Bosworth, a hard-nosed pro in the FBI’s unit of paranormal investigators—the Krewe of Hunters.

I can always count on Heather Graham to give me a gripping mystery paranormal with a touch of romance mixed in. This is an amazing ongoing series and the wait is only about two months til this one releases. Looking forward to it so much.
