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’ 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.

I read Phantom Evil before an online book club author chat with Heather Graham. I originally planned to read her most recent book, The Unknown, but after discovering that it was book 35 (holy moly!) in a series, I decided to read book 1 of the series first as an introduction. Phantom Evil was a bit rough around the edges, with dialogue that didn’t always flow smoothly from chapter to chapter, what felt like a thousand different plot lines, and main characters Jackson and Angela jumping into bed together (1) just a few days after meeting, (2) despite the fact that Jackson is Angela’s boss, (3) while investigating an alleged suicide of a grief-stricken mother, (4) in the house and wing where the alleged suicide took place, (5) that is also allegedly haunted! C’mon man! The book does have enjoyable parts, though. It’s October, so I enjoyed the ghosty, spooky bits, and while the characters weren’t very developed due to the busy plot, there is potential for the “Krewe of Hunters” (the naming of which is not explained well) to grow into a likable team in future sequels. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this book, especially as a prequel to The Unknown, which seemed more like a spin-off from the series than a sequel. I haven’t read books 2-34 though, so perhaps that’s the case for many or all of them.
The Phantom Evil is truly an excellent book. I could not put it down.
I have not read this series in order and enjoyed each book, but after finishing this book I want to read them in order and look for all the items that develop the relationships and working dynamic between everyone. Great job!

Just purchased 3 more. Will see what they're all about.
Hope they keep me riveted, as much as this one. I would recommend, for lightweight paranormal reading definitely.
But I've always said judge for yourselves.
