Aura of Night: A Novel (Krewe of Hunters, 37)
I’ve read Heather Graham’s books before, so I expected this one to be pretty good. Aura of Night is about an FBI agent named Ragnar who is investigating a ring of men who bury women alive for sexual and financial gain. He ends up protecting Megan Law, a woman who escaped the grip of one of these men. Two of the men are in prison, however, Ragnar knows there is a ring of men, and his job is to find out how the ring recruits men to kill the young women.
This story was all over the place all of the time. The story would go off into a tangent, and there were so many characters that it became hard to remember who was who. There were Colleen and Mark, Megan’s sister and brother-in-law, and Angela and Jackson, two police officers who are unofficially on the case, and a slew of other characters who get in the way of the story. The dialogue was unrealistic and sounded juvenile when the characters were bantering back and forth. I became bored halfway through the story and just wanted it to be over.
