Adam Harrison (The Dead Room, Ghostwalk) is putting together a new secret government unit of paranormal investigators. Heading the team is Jackson Crowe who is haunted by the recent deaths of his previous teammates and a mysterious experience with an ancestral ghost from his past. Although, given the recent experiences Jackson isn’t sure if this new appointment is a good thing or not. Angela Hawkins is also on the team and has experienced several tragedies in her past and has extraordinary paranormal intuition.
Jackson and Angela are heading the team that will investigate the death of a senator’s wife, Regina Holloway, in New Orleans. The New Orleans house is a hot bed of paranormal activity and the site of several grisly murders. Jackson and Angela must work together, with the help of their investigative team, to unravel the mystery of how the senator’s wife died and who or what did the killing.
Phantom of Evil will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first chapter to the last. Unraveling what is really going on in New Orleans and how the paranormal activity ties in is both chilling and exciting. The development of Jackson and Angela’s romance is nicely handled in conjunction with unraveling the mystery surrounding everything going on at the house in New Orleans. Heather Graham once again has done a wonderful job of weaving paranormal activity with real human evil. Once again, Ms. Graham will thrill her fans with an exciting tale of murder and mayhem.
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.
