Books from the Backlog - The Unholy

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  The Unholy by Heather Graham

Blurb:  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.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  This is the next book that I need to read in the Krewe of Hunters series and the blurb looks pretty fantastic.


  1. This is my next one up in the series and I have it and haven't listened to it for the past 5-6 years. I do love Luke Daniels which is the reason I started this series.

  2. It's been so long since I've read this author. I really want to check out this series.

  3. That whole Egyptian connection in this one appeals to me.

  4. I need to get back to this series. I am all over the map with this one. I still haven't read the earlier books in the series. I hope you enjoy The Unholy when you read it!
