The First Prophet
A Bishop Files Novel
by Kay Hooper
Published November 27th 2012 by Jove
390 pages - in the annoying tall paperback format that publishers are choosing lately for some unknown reason
Within the FBI, there exists a team of psychics whose powers cannot be denied. But these agents are feared—by a cabal of conspirators with only one weapon: to blind the psychics to the evils all around them.
Months ago Sarah Gallagher woke from a coma with psychic abilities she couldn’t control. They changed her life and cost her the man she loved. And now, someone is playing games with Sarah’s mind.
It begins with Sarah’s home being destroyed by fire—an act of arson that draws novelist Tucker Mackenzie into Sarah’s confidence. But he has other reasons for pursuing a woman who can see what others can’t. So does a mysterious enemy intent on eliminating Sarah, and everyone she cares about. Because it’s only a matter of time before her visions lead her and Tucker to a secret many will kill to hide. Only then will they begin to discover the scope of a terrifying conspiracy so deep and complex they can trust almost no one.
This was not my favorite of Hooper's books as there were several times where it got rather confusing. There were too many similar characters that it took quite awhile to figure out who was who. It did have the feel of an X-files episode, which was kind of fun.
