    This is the second in the Bishop/Special Crimes Unit Series by Kay Hooper. I really liked this one, but probably not as much as the first one.This novel is based on another member of the SCU. You get to know Quentin who was introduced briefly in the first novel of the series, Hunting Fear.The story line goes in a different direction from Hunting Fear. There's still the paranormal, but the crimes being investigated are weird. I don't want to divul...

    Tension, Romance and Psychic MurdersCHILL OF FEAR is one of the best of the Bishop/Special Crime Unit series. While I have complained about some of the previous entries because of the short shrift given to the romance in this series of paranormal romantic suspense books, this book is pretty darn good even though it ends with just the beginning of what might be termed the actual romance. THE STORY: Special Agent Quentin Hayes has been obsessed wit...

    I've been a fan of Kay Hooper's writing since I picked up her first book many years ago. Chill of Fear has a little less action than some of her others but, for me, it was just as good. The story centers around Diana, a woman coming to terms with her ability as a medium. There's mystery, an emerging romance and, of course, the paranormal world of ghosts and extrasensory abilities. This is part of the ongoing Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series, tho...

    The first book I've downloaded from my public library to Kindle....too cool
  • Anita
    3.5 StarsHaunted hotels with long histories and lots of secrets, paranormal murder mysteries with psychic FBI agents, and a woman who can see ghosts and walk with the dead... Chill of Fear pretty much has Ani-bait written all over it… despite the fact that the summary doesn’t really do much justice for the depth of story that this book covers. Then again, having so much plot going on in the background as well as so much plot going on in the f...

    When I bought this book 3 years ago I had placed it on my bookshelf with good intentions of reading it sooner. I am kicking myself now for taking so long. This book is about a Special Crime Unit of the FBI that is composed of psychics. These psychics solve crimes and fall in love and generally help each other to excel with their psychic abilities.This book is about Quentin Hayes trying to solve a crime that he had the misfortune of witnessing as ...

    The best of the Bishop series, I've read so far.
  • Alice Bash
    Another Bishop Special Crimes Unit book. I love her books about psychics, both old characters and new. The story keeps you guessing right up to the end.
  • Paul Weiss
    Suspend your disbelief ... sit back and enjoy!Chill of Fear, the second installment in Hooper's new series of mysteries with a paranormal twist, details the continuing adventures of Noah Bishop's FBI Special Crimes Unit (SCU) - a unique hand-selected team of mediums, seers, clairvoyants, telepaths, empaths and others with an abnormally high ability in the psychic arts willing to devote their abilities to police work. Quentin Hayes is a member of ...
  • Leigh
    Of all of the books in the series so far, this one has been my least favorite. While I appreciate when a lengthy series takes twists and turns to keep the story line alive and interesting, this one just felt way out of left field for me. On the one hand, I really, really enjoyed getting to learn more about Quentin. Throughout the series, he has been one of the most hard-to-read characters and so one of the most intriguing. I really liked getting ...

  • Pat
    Anything by Kay Hooper is a terrific read. She will capture your attention on the first page and about the time you think you know what is going to happen she will throw in a twist that you won't see coming. I started reading Kay's books right after she started being published. She is still my favorite author. I've read all of her books and have never been disappointed in anything that I've read. There is some mild language, almost all of her boo...

    I don't know how I would feel if I spent most of my life being told I am crazy only to find out that my father was lying to me regardless of the cause. Instead of showing compassion he would be such a cold hearted butthead.This definately took to a book of strange. The fact that they both were tied to this one single location where all the pieces came together to solve more than one more murder over the centuries.I do feel cheated only because we...

    "Un hotel que esconde muchos secretos, crímenes sin resolver y unos protagonistas con poderes paranormales son los elementos que dan forma a esta historia que entretiene y que mejora a medida que avanza. Las primeras y las últimas páginas son las que le hacen perder puntos al libro".Reseña completa: http://entrelalecturayelcine.blogspot...Si pudiera, le daría un 3,5/5, pero es que darle un 4 me parece demasiado porque creo que no se le sacó...
  • Micky Cox
    An interesting twist in this installment of the Bishop Special Crimes Unit series. Someone is killing people at a remote lodge, but it isn't the average killer...but then they never are with this series. Great character development as usual and it was great to see characters from earlier books make a reappearance. The plot was layered, twisted and complicated in all the right ways. If you like a good paranormal mystery then I definitely recommend...
  • Cheryl
    This one was a little more paranormal than others in the series to this point. We didn't have a traditional bad guy but there was a lot of tension and spookiness. It still kept me on the edge of my seat to see what was happening next. It was also nice to get to visit with a character from a past book. That is part of why I like this type of series, the characters recur and you feel like you are visiting old friends.

  • Dena
    Loved the paranormal aspect. Good mystery, though some parts were just long, drawn out to me. I wanted to say get to the point. I wished there was more romance between Quentin and Diana. I didn't really feel a romantic connection between them, which disappointed me. But the ending totally surprised me. I didn't see that coming. And it's not often an ending takes me by surprise.
  • Jennifer Olivas
    This is the first book that I have read by Kay Hooper. I thought that it was a very good book. It even managed to creep me out a little bit, as I was reading it by myself in the middle of the night. Interesting characters. Kept you guessing til the end.

  • Susan Maynes cluff
    Def better than the last one. missing some of the romantic build up one would expect in this series but I enjoyed the twist of a non scu detective being the primary psychic to solve the mystery
