Phantom Nights Viral Ebook This was my first book by veteran horror/thriller writer John Farris, a ghost story of sorts that could function almost as well without the supernatural element. Alex, a mute troubled adolescent, witnesses the rape and events that lead to a later murder of a woman who has become his most trusted friend. Alex's will causes the woman's spirit to stay behind and help bring justice. There are great themes here: that revenge has a cost that may be too high to bear, that we help nobody by hanging on to the past. There are great characters in older brother and guardian Bobby, acting sheriff who tries to do well, Bobby's loving wife with conflicts of interest regarding Alex, her mother who is self-serving and vindictive enough to set up Alex for false accusations in attempt to force Bobby to send him away. There is the power-hungry villain in Leland Howard and the anti-stereotypical negro Father of the murdered woman. The sleepy Tennessee town setting during the 1950s is Gothic and appropriate. Where the book mildly disappoints is in how it sets up all of these personal conflicts for Alex and then completely dismisses them after the murder at the halfway point. Nicely redeemed by the finale and epilogue.. The year is 1952 Fourteen year old Alex Gambier is rebellious by nature and scarred by childhood tragedy in the southern community of Evening Shade An outcast in his own family, mute from a bout with diptheria at an early age, Alex expresses himself by writing imaginative stories and by conceiving daredevil stunts that test all of his physical rescources while putting hiThe year is 1952 Fourteen year old Alex Gambier is rebellious by nature and scarred by childhood tragedy in the southern community of Evening Shade An outcast in his own family, mute from a bout with diptheria at an early age, Alex expresses himself by writing imaginative stories and by conceiving daredevil stunts that test all of his physical rescources while putting his life in extreme danger.The aftermath of one of his hair raising stunts finds Alex in the care of a young black nurse named Mally Shaw An unlikely friendship results, which is ended by an unspeakable crime that costs Mally her life.Or not quite ended, for Mally finds herself trapped in a nether world by the force of Alex s will and his need to exact a terrifying revenge on the man responsible for Mally s death.But the revenge he seeks is a two edged sword, the price Alex s own soul as he recklessly pursues his quarry in a chilling double twist climax that surpasses anything John Farris has written before.. The best Book Phantom Nights With the combination of a thriller/ghost story, and Alex a rebellious 14 year old mute, that's befriended by Mally, a young black woman in 1952 Tennesee. Farris writes a tale with dread and also tender moments. The description of that era and wonderful writing make this a recommended read, by a long time thriller/horror writer.

  3. Farris is definitely one of the literary quote horror authors unquoted I say this because this is truly thriller than horror, but then, for all that, it s a slow burning thriller.Reading a Farris novel is like taking a long stroll with a storytelling friend who hails from the south and has a great vocabulary He ll mete out the story at a languorous pace, but never bore you He ll fill in details that, while they may add nothing to the story, definitely add to the characters or the atmosphere.In [...]


  4. Phantom Nights is an interesting blend of the natural and super natural under the sub title as a rape and murder case Set in the antebellum South, which I estimated to be the 1950 s, by its tone and usage of terminology, especially in addressing race relations The story has all of the standard making s of a drunken rape, then subsequent murder which takes the reader into a number of different directions from there.One of the only reasons I became interested in this book had to do with the promis [...]


  5. In the vein of iconic ghost stories, this takes a leisurely pace and slowly amps up the tension and menace surrounding its very likable young hero If we had the option of half stars I might have given it a 3 1 2 because, while very good and an excellent armchair or beach read, it would be helpful to be able to save the four and five star designations for those phenomenal linger in your brain stories Faced with the three versus four choice, though, I readily give this four because the issues of r [...]


  6. This one falls between 2 and 3 stars due to the fact that if felt like two stories forced together One was a gritty, depressing thriller filled with vulgarity and lewd sexual content The other was a ghost story with sketchy theology The author could have left out some of the graphic descriptions and had an engaging story Instead, he resorted to cheap tactics to keep the reader shocked I almost stopped after reading the first 30 pages, but kept going because I felt there was something redemptive [...]


  7. this book was somewhat confusing and slow at first, it took me a while to understand the story Once you are a little past the middle it starts to come together This story is very sweet in alot of ways A misunderstood handicapped teenager, a black woman who is looked down on and treated second class but who is kind and forgiving Murder, rape and guilt seem to rule this story and of course all is made right in the end in an unexpected way


  8. I enjoyed this a lota ghost story just spooky enough to give me a small frisson at the end There were actually several satisfying endings in a way, and it made me smile I think this book will stay with me and give me pleasure for quite awhile to come.
