Waking Hours by Lis Wiehl
Welcome to East Salem: A deceptively sleepy town where ancient supernatural forces are being awakened.
A high-school girl is found murdered in a park in Westchester County, New York. The shocking manner of her death confounds the town and intrigues forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris, who is determined to unravel the mystery. All the suspects are teenagers who were at a party with the girl—yet no one remembers what happened. Could one of them be a vicious killer? Or is something more sinister afoot—something tied to an ancient evil?
But it's not just Dani’s waking hours that challenge her. Each night, her eyes open at 2:13 due to troubling dreams—dreams filled with blood, water, and destruction. Is it a clue—or a sign?
Across town, former NFL linebacker Tommy Gunderson finds his security system has been breached by an elderly woman who attacks him with preternatural strength. Before he can process the attack, someone close to him is implicated in the high-school girl's murder. He agrees to help—and finds himself working with Dani, the only girl who could resist his charms when they were in high school.
It will take astute analysis and forensic skills to solve the crime. But Dani and Tommy suspect there's more to the mystery than murder, more to their growing friendship than chance . . . and more to the evil they're facing than a mere human killer.
If you like your books exciting and keeping you on your edge of your seat, this is the series for you to start. I have liked Lis Wiehl's other series Triple Threat and I was excited about reading this first installment of this new series and I was not disappointed. The book starts out with an elderly woman being found at the home of Tommy Gunderson and she ends up attacking him with strenth that is much more than she should be able to muster. Later that night a girl is found murdered but even though there are many witnesses know remembers. The rest of the book is a mystery with alot of twist and turns , enough to keep you turning the pages till the very end. I love thrillers and this is a THRILLER of the highest kind. Great book!!!!
