Sleeping with Fear  
I put Sleeping with Fear by Kay Hooper on my Amazon Wish List after reading one of neadods's pieces on Reviewing the Evidence and was duly given it for Christmas. Riley Crane, a Clairvoyant member of the FBI Special Crimes Unit, wakes up one morning covered in blood, with no memory of the past three weeks and, apparently, without her powers. The book follows her efforts both to discover what has happened to her and to solve a gruesome murder. I thoroughly enjoyed this. It does pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, i.e., it is a supernatural detective story - nothing more and nothing less, but it does it very competently. I can nit pick, but I won't because if you look hard enough at almost anything you can nit pick. Riley is an attractive heroine and, although she does stupid things, is aware of the fact and there are good reasons why she does them even though that's not always obvious at the time.

There are, apparently, several Special Crimes Unit books so I shall be checking out the others. In fact Amazon informs me that Sleeping with Fear is the third in the "Fear Trilogy". I'm guessing this trilogy is pretty loosely linked because I honestly had no idea. An unchallenging book but recommended none-the-less.
