The Unholy is Krewe of Hunter’s #6

“A Hollywood shrine hides unholy deeds  The 1940s: Hard-boiled detectives and femmes fatale are box-office gold. In one iconic scene, set in a deserted museum, the private eye arrives too late, and the buxom beauty is throttled by an ominous Egyptian priest. 

Now: The Black Box Cinema immortalizes Hollywood’s Golden Age in its gallery of film noir tributes. But the mannequin of that Egyptian priest is hardly lifeless. He walks-and a young starlet dies a terrifying death. 

Movie mogul Eddie Archer’s son is charged with the grisly murder. Eddie calls agent Sean Cameron, who specializes in…irregular investigations. As part of an FBI paranormal forensics team, Cameron knows that nightmares aren’t limited to the silver screen. 

Working with special-effects artist Madison Darvil-who has her own otherworldly gifts-Cameron delves into the malevolent force animating more than one movie monster….

The Unholy was a mystery with a dab of paranormal.  Heather Graham’s writing is always well finished and smooth.  The characters were well defined and extremely likeable, but I felt The Unholy fell short.  It was very hard to get into this book and even half way through it I just didn’t feel that interested in the mystery.  The mystery just didn’t seem that mysterious and the creepiness just wasn’t that creepy.    The chemistry between Madison and Sean fell somewhere in the middle.  The intensity was missing somewhere.  My favorite thing about this book was a certain ghost personality.  I won’t say who..but it is someone famous.  So overall The Unholy was one of those in the middle books.  Nothing really exciting, but not bad either.

I give The Unholy 3.5 out of 5 Bullets

    Thanks for your review. It sounds like an interesting premise let down by mediocre writing. I wonder if you have read Anne Rice’s The Mummy?

    I almost thought about buying this one. But now I don’t think I will. I have not read anything by Heather Graham and I wanted to try something out. Maybe this one is not the one to start with.
