Review

      This serial-murder thriller hints at the supernatural.

      Kathy's recurring bad dreams seem to be getting more frequent and more explicit. At the behest of her psychiatrist, she starts sketching the dreams, only to find that her sketches have an uncanny resemblance to victims of the Coast-to-Coast Killer that she later sees on TV. Co-narrator Jack, an FBI agent on the serial killer case but short on suspects, is happy to entertain Kathy's testimonial after she reports her premonitory abilities to the police. There's also the perspective of Tom, the elusive, misogynistic serial killer, who seems to suffer from multiple-personality disorder. Redolent of The Eyes of Laura Mars, the taut narrative unfurls an appropriately unsettling though vague sense of Tom's condition, mixed with a clearer sense of his location. Jack, haggard from his job and disenchanted by FBI bureaucracy, nonetheless radiates charisma and empathy. The details of Kathy's life unfold with patience: Her dreams merge with reality at a believable pace, then, as expertly plotted by the author, doubt sets in while readers and Jack begin to question the reliability of her perception. By skeptically referencing its supernatural element--"Think we've got an actual X-Files case here?" asks Jack's sidekick--the story adeptly tightens the suspension of disbelief...

       Smart, suspenseful and disquietingly believable.

Phantom Dreams by T. K. Harris begins in the mind of a serial killer, then the FBI agent tracking him, and finally the woman who dreams about the killings.

Kathy Gilliam is a twenty-nine-year-old single, work-a-holic, with an ailing father. She lives alone and up until recently has nightmares she can't remember. However as the stress over her father's declining health and an important account looming at work begin to exhaust her, her nightmares become more frequent and more vivid.

At the urging of her primary physician Kathy seeks the help of a psychiatrist who advises her to keep a notebook beside her bed to write down the dreams. Several sketches later, Kathy realizes that the faces from her dreams match those of murder victims of the Coast-to-Coast killer that are splashed across the news. Feeling that she is losing her mind, she tries to ignore it. But Kathy eventually finds herself at the local police station telling her story. However, instead of being of help Kathy may find herself a suspect, or the next victim.

The novel has suspense and mystery to it, which many will enjoy. The description is full of many sights and scents. It takes place mostly in the spring in the Southeast (Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama) which I am familiar with so it feels realistic in that way for me.

Kathy and Agent Matthews' characters are just ok for me. However, the serial killer's mind is entertaining in that he is completely insane. His conversations with the "other" person in his head are shocking. What I found interesting is that the reader doesn't know which of the two is the "real" person and which is just the voice in the head until the end.

When I first started reading this, I thought it was a straight crime thriller.

I'm not really sure why I love this book....I think that I knew all along that there was a supernatural connection without it ever being focused on. We all have dreams. And I am someone who tends to analyze my dreams. But of course Kathy was haunted by reoccurring dreams for years and obviously not crazy. Her fears of being thought of as crazy are so natural and normal. So many books on paranormal romance around today that it was nice to have a little bit of both. The attraction between Kathy n Jake....the whole time in the back of my mind, I was hoping they would act on it. But without taking a sidetrack off the original story line was great. Too many authors do that. The same was true with the supernatural acceptance, it left the reader to wonder on their own. I mean, she knew reoccurring dreams where not ordinary but didn't get all sidetracked on them by believing she was physic. In short, the author didn't go all "X File" and ruin a very good story. The characters are very refined and every day kind of people. I'm not sure how good I am writing previews....But I think that this book has a great quality
to it and I would recommend it anyone who loves a good book that is down to earth, you can really identify with the characters. And at the same time, make your own decisions about the strange coincidences.........

Phantom Dreams is a chilling tale of a vicious killer and a woman whose dreams are haunted by the cruel murders of beautiful young woman. Will she be next?

Kathy is a busy executive experiencing mounting stress, no personal life, and her father's ill healthy only compounds her struggles. If that wasn't enough for one person to deal with, Kathy has been having violent dreams that always result in the death of a woman. When Kathy recognizes the women from her dreams on the news she tries to help the police, but then she becomes a suspect. Can the FBI catch the real killer before it's too late?

Phantom Dreams is an eerily captivating thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat, yet keep you yearning for more. T.K. Harris is a talented writer and her ability to hook and reel in readers is evident from the chilling opening scene. The story is filled with many twists and leaves readers unsure of what's coming next. The surprising outcome is perfect for this supernatural mystery.

I highly recommend picking up a copy of Phantom Dreams.

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.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a gripping novel with characters who are relatable and the storyline is impeccably written. You are drawn in from the start. I loved the style of this book - being written from 3 different points of view. As you go along you start figuring out who did it...but it may not be as obvious as you think.
