A new book by Heather Graham is “Unseen.” San Antonio has become a dumping ground for battered bodies – all young women, many of them long missing, almost forgotten. Texas Ranger Logan Raintree, with his powerful ability to communicate with the dead, is teamed up with U.S. Marshall Kelsy O’Brien, who has the ability to “see” the past unfolding into the present. If the spirits of long-dead Texans are really appearing to the victims before their deaths, only these two have the skills to find out why.
