Early Review–Phantom Evil
A secret government unit is formed under the oversight of Adam Harrison, famed paranormal investigator. The six members he's gathered know a little of the otherworldly—each has honed a psychic talent of their own. Jackson Crow, part English, part Cheyenne, heads the group. Haunted by his experience with an ancestral ghost who saved his life as a child, and the recent murders of two previous teammates, Jackson can't tell if Adam's demoted him or given him an extraordinary opportunity. Despite his link to the realm of spirits, he's well aware that the living commit the most heinous crimes, with spiritualist charlatans existing merely to fool and seduce the unwary. To counterbalance Jackson's careful skepticism, Adam Harrison has paired him with Angela Hawkins, a young woman who learned the painful lesson of loss at an early age. A police officer utilizing her paranormal intuition in Virginia, she already has her hands full. But Adam's call to New Orleans is strong. The case: In a historic mansion in New Orleans's French Quarter, a senator's wife falls to her death from a balcony. Most think she jumped, distraught over the loss of her young son. Some say she was pushed. And yet others believe she was beckoned by the ghostly spirits that inhabit the house—once the site of a serial killer's grisly work. Whether supernatural or all too human, crimes of passion, greed and desire will cast the pair into danger of losing their lives…and their immortal souls.
Right after the Civil War ended, Madden C. Newton bought the house and started his savage killing spree. It is said that he killed more people then Jack the Ripper.
Long after Madden’s death, people started saying that the house was haunted. More and more people died. Was it just coincidence or was there something sinister going on?
Senator Holloway and his wife Regina finally get to move into the house of their dreams. However, it ends up to be a house made of nightmares.
I was gripped from the first chapter. She really caught me off guard quite a few times in this book. I never knew what to expect.
The characters were really great. I absolutely loved Jackson. He walked a fine line between completely believing in what was happening and being skeptical of everything.
If you have read any of Heather’s other paranormal mysteries, then you will definitely love this. She makes you feel as if you are right along with the characters in New Orleans. I could almost hear the jazz musicians playing in the background.
