I was lucky enough to win this book in an online promo on Facebook and I was so pleased as the storyline is my kind of book, one of those murders with a witness/accomplice and then you get the twists that just as you think you've worked out who the killer is that person dies, and you go "what no they can't be I was sure they were the killer"
FBI Special Agent Jack Matthews is one of those agents who just never stops chasing serial killer, monsters even though he's recently been badly wounded on his last case and has a leg wound he still says he's okay to deal with this case even though he's dealing with being investigated for a botched case, his fiancee has walked out on him and maybe a part of him feels taking on this case will help him heal. Then Jack meets a woman, Kathy Gilliam, who lives a very normal life going between caring for her ill father, working long hours and spending what spare time she has with her best friend, Margo Longfellow. Nothing unusual ever seems to happen to Kathy until all of a sudden she starts to have nightmares and the dreams get more frequent and she starts to think she's losing her mind when each one of these dreams is about women being killed and she really starts to wonder what is wrong with her when she can't stop the dreams. She finally breaks down and tells Margo who is so concerned she begs her to see somebody about it, Kathy says she's fine they'll stop until one day she sees the newspaper and the front page is a photo of the woman she saw die in one of her dreams.
Jack is introduced to Kathy when she plucks up the courage to go to the police about her horrible dreams, as she did go to see a psychiatrist and was encouraged to draw her memories of her dreams if she can, and this is how she recognises one of the women from her dream. Jack being the agent he is wonders is she a crackpot or an accomplice of the killer. As the killings add up Kathy and Jack have more interaction and the story keeps you on the edge of your seat right up until the last page when you find out is Kathy a witness like she claims or is she an accomplice of the serial killer... I know and I promise you you'll be so glad when you read it that I didn't add any spoilers.
I was given a copy by GMTA Publishing to give an honest review for Phantom Dreams.
I loved this premise. It's written in three parts. First through the killers point of view. The second part through the FBI agent searching for him and third through the woman dreaming about the killings.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially being in the head of the killer. I think T.K Harris has done an amazing job. Her characters are well developed and you absolutely have no idea who the killer is at the end. I've had a couple in mind as I went along in the story, but was far off.
The pacing of the story did slow down towards the third part, but still it was a really good story told.
I wish T.K Harris all the best with Phantom dreams and everyone that loves a good mystery, mixed with Paranormal should read this.
