Twelve years ago, Central Florida was gripped in a nightmare. There was a serial killer, dubbed The Interstate Killer, on the loose and as each body was discovered, the police acquired zero evidence. The killer left no trace evidence at all so the whispers started – what if it’s a cop doing the killing? A cop would know how to kill without leaving evidence!! Detective Beau Kidd discovered the last body almost immediately after it was dumped and realized the killer was still in the immediate vicinity. He drew his gun and what followed can only be called a tragedy, born of fear and frustration.


Christina Hardy inherited her grandparent’s house and moved back to the area – just in time for the next victim of the Interstate Killer to be discovered. She has a gift – a gift made so terrifying by her parents and grandmother that she buried it deep and never used it again, until now! But this time she isn’t given a choice of using it and she doesn’t know what to do!


Jed Braden has known Christina for a very long time – he’s the cousin of Christina’s good friend Ana so the three of them, along with Christina’s cousins, more or less grew up together – but he’s never seen her as he does now. All grown up, tall, elegant, beautiful, red headed………the perfect description of The Interstate Killers victims! Jed worries that Christina is next and he’s still trying to figure out his feelings for her.


Heather Graham’s The Séance is a wonderfully gripping tale complete with a Ouija board, a séance, a heroic ghost, a dark, brooding hero, a heroine who refuses to be a victim and a psychotic serial killer! I found the book to be very hard to put down and I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good ghost tale and while the ghost doesn’t have that big a role – it is important! I’m off to see if Ms. Graham wrote any more ghost stories!
