In Clarity, North Carolina, the residents have fallen victim to an unfortunate series of events. Seemingly random accidents have taken the lives of several citizens in the small mountain town. But these deadly coincidences are anything but. Something is on the hunt in Clarity, and the only clue as to what is a cryptic note given to the victims 24 hours before they meet their ends: “Wait for dark.”

Sheriff Mal Gordon knows how to handle his town, but he has no idea how to handle this. Hollis Templeton and her team from the Special Crimes Unit, including her partner and lover, telepath Reese DeMarco, are called in to investigate.

But while the SCU has prepared them for the unknown, the incredible evil stalking Clarity shakes the team to its core when one of their own is targeted. Now Hollis, the “cat with nine lives” finds herself facing death again.

And this time, not even her partner can protect her...

Members of Bishop’s unique Special Crimes Unit return in another spectacular book by Kay Hooper. In a small town named Clarity, unexplained accidents start happening and increase in strangeness. Sheriff Gordon knows something isn’t quite right but doesn’t know what and how to prove it so he calls the FBI for help.

Hollis Templeton and her partner, Reese DeMarco head to Clarity with Kirby Bell and Cullen Sheridan the other members of the team, to figure out if these accidents are really accidents. Hollis has so many abilities and keeps gaining more. Reese doesn’t think she’s ready to go into the field again, but Bishop always seems to know what the members of the team can handle. As Hollis and Reese work to find out what evil has afflicted the town. Hollis is learning more about herself and her adaptability than she thought she ever could.

Wait for Dark is superbly written and full of surprises. Another win for Hooper.

About the Author:
Kay Hooper was born in California, in an air force base hospital since her father was stationed there at the time. The family moved back to North Carolina shortly afterward, so she was raised and went to school there.

The oldest of three children, Kay has a brother two years younger and a sister seven years younger. Her father (now retired) and brother are builders who own a highly respected construction company, and her mother worked for many years in personnel management before becoming Kay's personal assistant, a position she held until her untimely death in March 2002. Kay's sister Linda works as her Business Manager, Events Coordinator, and Regional Publicist.

Kay graduated from East Rutherford High School and attended Isothermal Community College — where she quickly discovered that business classes did not in any way enthrall her. Switching to more involving courses such as history and literature, she also began to concentrate on writing, which had been a longtime interest. Very quickly hooked, she asked for a Christmas typewriter and began seriously working on her first novel. That book, a Regency romance titled Lady Thief, sold to Dell Publishing in 1980. She has since published more than 60 novels and four novellas

Kay is single and lives in a very small town in North Carolina, not far from her father and siblings. Deigning to live with her are a flock of cats (and a couple of dogs!) with various personalities who all like sleeping on manuscripts and whatever research happens to be spread across Kay's desk.

Kay also fosters cats and kittens for the Community Pet Center, a non-profit rescue organization on whose board she also sits.
