Sometimes the dead do tell tales...
1800s. San Antonio, Texas: In room 207 at the Longhorn Saloon, in the long shadow of the Alamo itself, a woman renowned for her beauty was brutally murdered. Her killer was never found.
One year ago: In that same historic room, another woman vanished without a trace. Her blood was everywhere...but her body was never recovered.
Now: In the last month, San Antonio has become a dumping ground for battered bodies. All young women, many of them long missing, almost all forgotten. Until now.
Texas Ranger Logan Raintree cannot sit by and let his city's most vulnerable citizens be slain. So when he is approached to lead a brand-new group of elite paranormal investigators working the case, he has no choice but to accept the challenge. And with it, his powerful ability to commune with the dead.
Among Logan's new team is Kelsey O’Brien, a U.S. marshal known for her razor-sharp intuition and a toughness that belies her delicate exterior. Kelsey has been waiting all her life to work with someone who can understand her ability to "see" the past unfolding in the present. Now she has her chance.
Together, Kelsey and Logan follow their instincts to the Alamo and to the newly reopened Longhorn, which once tempted heroes with drink, cards and women. If the spirits of those long-dead Texans are really appearing to the victims before their deaths, only Kelsey and Logan have the skills to find out why. And if something more earthly is menacing the city's oldest, darkest corners, only they can stop it—before more innocent women join the company of San Antonio's restless ghosts....
I know this is the 5th book in the series, but from what was going on in this book, this one seemed like the start of the series, and since it's not, I think it's kinda a new branch of the series, a mini series within the main series, with a new group, and yeah, that was really great, seeing as I haven't read the first 4 books to my knowledge!
Really enjoyed Kesley and Logan, they were a pretty fantastic couple, they were interesting, and they had a pretty great romance, and some pretty hilarious times, like when they were talking to that one ghost, and they had to pretend they were just talking to each other!
Loved the mystery a lot, it was pretty great, and yeah, I didn't guess who the bad guy was, I found out when the good guys did, and yeah, that was just great, and so entertaining! And seeing as mystery, crime is one of the major genres of the book, this is a great thing!
Really enjoyed this book, and yeah, I can't wait to read more!
