A Bishop/SCU Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A town in the thrall of evil. A summons that can't be ignored. The SCU returns in a nail-biting novel from New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper.
The Chosen have been warned. Powerful psychics across the globe have gotten the same eerie and insistent message: Go to Prosperity. Because in this small North Carolina mountain town, madness has taken hold...
Trapped in a nightmare they can't escape, the residents of Prosperity are killing one another, waking up with no memory of the monstrous acts they've committed--or the reasons why. Chief Deputy Katie Cole knows that whatever evil is afoot is beyond her expertise, and beyond the understanding of Sheriff Jackson Archer. They need help.
The Special Crimes Unit is called in for its specific brand of investigation, to aid the Chosen as well as the once-peaceful mountain town. It will take all the agents' training, all their experience, and every extra sense they can call on to get to the bottom of things in Prosperity. And as a sinister pattern begins to emerge, even the most experienced and hardened SCU agents must brace themselves for a flood of darkness unlike any the world has ever seen...

Hold Back the Dark
Great book with a wonderful introduction to some brilliant new characters
I was so looking forward to this next book in the trilogy. I've become a fan of the Bishop/SCU series over the years and have cultivated a love for the characters Kaye has developed. Unfortunately I feel like the author spends so much time writing redundantly to catch the reader up that it has affected the story itself. I felt like the story had more potential and I was left feeling like it was thrown together and then just ended. I hope that the next book brings my endearment back to the series.
Thumbs way down
Worst book in the series so far. Leads you to believe it will tell you about the characters and completely leaves you wanting! Sorry I even bought it.
