Phantom Evil by Heather Graham


Date Read: October 2011

Goodreads

A secret government unit, a group of renegade paranormal investigators... and a murder no one else can crack.

Though haunted by the recent deaths of two teammates, Jackson Crow knows that the living commit the most heinous crimes.

A police officer utilizing her paranormal intuition, Angela Hawkins already has her hands full of mystery and bloodshed.

But one assignment calls to them too strongly to resist. In a historic mansion in New Orleans's French Quarter, a senator's wife falls to her death. Most think she jumped; some say she was pushed. And yet others believe she was beckoned by the ghostly spirits inhabiting the house β€” once the site of a serial killer's grisly work.

In this seemingly unsolvable case, only one thing is certain: whether supernatural or all too human, crimes of passion will cast Jackson and Angela into danger of losing their lives... and their immortal souls.

Overall Rating 4.00
Story Rating 4.25
Character Rating 3.75

NOTE: Phantom Evil is classified I think as a Romantic Suspense. I would classify it more as a Mystery/Thriller with some paranormal leanings. There is some romance but it is not the main focus of the story.

What I Loved: This was one fantastically twisty tale that kept me on the edge of my seat. I was never quite sure if it was the ghosts or real-live evil people that committed the murder that the “Krewe of Hunters” was investigating. While it didn’t take me the whole book to figure it out, the way that Heather Graham wrapped up the end was done brilliantly. As a mystery/thriller fan, I was highly impressed.

What I Liked: The “Krewe” Team was excellent and I have a feeling I will grow to love them over the course of the series. The different personalities, backgrounds, races, and experience seemed to set the stage for there to be conflict and yet they worked together as a cohesive team. I had a blast watching them lean on each other and accept each others differences.

Complaints: None

Why I Gave it a 4.00: Phantom Evil was an excellent mystery/thriller that had a bit of romance and a unique concept. I will be reading the rest of the series.

    Ooooh a Cheyenne lead male? As someone who is part Cheyenne I love seeing my heritage represented in books :)Thriller that kept you on the edge of your seat with a touch of romance? Added to my TBR πŸ™‚

    Hmm…sounds like something I might have to try! I love suspense. I'm honestly surprised I don't read more mystery/thrillers. I guess it's because I seem to have this uncanny knack for guessing the endings!

    YaY! Team Ghostie! We welcome you! :DYes, this sounds like a good one and I need to read it. Ghost stories usually come across to me as mystery sometimes thrillers like this one rather than horror. Needs to get it!
