Sophie Dunston sabe muy bien como los sueños matan. Como una de las principales terapeutas del sueño en el país, Sophie se especializa en los terrores nocturnos que sufre su hijo de diez años, Michael. Pero también es una experta en otro tipo de terror, el tipo que puede convertir un sueño de la vida en una pesadilla en un abrir y cerrar de ojos. Alguien está mirando. Es una figura en las sombras que viene de sus miedos más oscuros y que no se ha olvidado de ella. En un momento impactante y violento, había roto para siempre el mundo de Sofía y la dejó con una sola cosa para vivir: su hijo. Pero la pesadilla no ha terminado para Sophie Dunston. Es solo el principio...

Killer Dreams grabs you from the first few pages and you can’t let go of the story of a woman who is trying to prevent a dangerous substance from being released while keeping her son safe. Full of action and heart Iris Johansen provides proof of what a person will go through in order to help/take accountability for her past. ( )

Have read and love most of Johansen's books. As in all her novels, I love the fast paced action and romance. She has kept me reading way into the night for years now and will remain one of my favorite authors for years to come. ( )

I picked up the paperback version from the library because I like scary stories and the cover and blurb on the back seemed to promise that. (A woman and child running through what looks like a forest in the dark, and the font of the book title almost looking like it was written in blood, only black in color.) The prologue DID grab me. An event that I promise you won't see coming knocked the socks off me and I thought a great story was in store. Instead, the story didn't seem to match the cover and blurb on the back. The plot itself was pretty good, but the heroine got on my nerves. She and her child are in danger and lots of folks are risking their lives to save them and instead of appreciation, the heroine is utterly defiant through most of the book. It left me feeling as though they ought to just drop her off on the nearest street corner and leave her to fend for herself. Also, I didn't see anything on the cover or back to suggest that this was a romantic suspense story, and I don't like those at all. Granted, this wasn't at bad as the "her heaving bosom, his throbbing..." types, but as the outside of the book gave no hint of it coming, I was sad to see it in the story. The evil plot was pretty good; if this book was written without the romance or without such a hateful heroine, it would be MUCH better. ( )

Sophie is a sleep therapist, specialising in the night terrors that her 10 year old son, Michael, suffers from. Fresh out of college she invents a new drug called REM-4 to help insomniacs. Sophie's coworker, Sanborne, discovers a distinct usage of this medication. It is able to modify patient's behaviour in a way to generate an army of obedient and dutiful, zombie-like top notch killers. Sophie with the help of Matt Royd have to bring an end to Sanborne's plans.

I found this to be a predictable read. Good for sitting at the beach on a hot summers day. ( )
