Book Review - Phantom Audition by Simon Dillon

Title: Phantom Audition
Author: Simon Dillon
Publisher: Dragon Soul Press
Pages: 300
Genre: Psychological Thriller

Small-time actress Mia Yardley, recently widowed wife of renowned actor Steven Yardley, discovers her late husband’s secret acting diary. The diary details appointments made with a psychic medium, who advised Steven on which roles to take. It also raises questions about his mysterious and inexplicable suicide. Seeking answers, Mia speaks to the medium, but in doing so is drawn into an ever- deepening mystery about what happened to her husband during the final days of his life. Eventually, she is forced to ask the terrible question: was Steven Yardley murdered by a vengeful evil from beyond the grave?



My Thoughts: A beautifully written thriller about grief and how it effects the mind. I immediately felt drawn to Mia the main character who is in mourning of her husband over his apparent suicide. Nobody really seems to take her seriously either they think she's just out of her mind in grief or plum crazy to begin with over some of the decisions she makes.  I enjoyed how I felt while reading Phantom Audition. It literally gave me the creeps like a great horror movie would!
