Grief does strange things to the mind. MIa mourns the loss of her husband Stephen, a renowned actor whose drug-overdose death is out of character for him. But not out of character for the role he's most recently undertaken. Could it be that the chillingly realistic embodiment Stephen gave, an Oscar-worthy portrayal of a famous artist, was so realistic because he received help from beyond the grave?
Mia wants answers. But each answer only raises new questions -- and drags her deeper into a

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Phantom Audition! And loooooved feeling the creepy crawly chills as I double checked I'd locked all doors and windows before going to bed, and looked twice at random reflections or movements I wouldn't ordinarily have noticed!! Made me feel younger; perhaps because I loved mystery novels when I was in high-school, so the novel took me back.
Phantom Audition is such a clear, round, fast read; you're always satisfied because you always understand/know

I'm a sucker for any book with a creepy mansion on the cover, which is the #1 reason why I wanted to read Phantom Audition to begin with. At just under 300 pages, I quickly read through it yesterday morning before I finished one cup of coffee.

The very beginning of the novel somewhat reminds me of the classic Twilight Zone episode "The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine," though the two have completely different plots. With both tales, I was under the assumption they were going to be simple haunted house

Modern Gothic Full of Suspense

I have a lot of feelings about this book.
Dillon, sticking to what he does best, has again written a novel that stole my sleep for two nights. I know I'll be thinking about so many of the characters, twists and turns, and emotions I came across on this reading adventure. He has a way of making you love and hate the characters over and over, and I can't say that I've ever read anything remotely similar to this plot. Originality, being captivating to the reader and

Simon Dillon's newest novel, Phantom Audition, is a fantastic, page-turning, supernatural mystery! Thrilling from start to finish, with plenty of intrigue, Phantom Audition will have you on the edge of your seat.

Dillon does a wonderful job engaging you. Page after page, he guides you through the circumstances surrounding the death of main protagonist Mia's husband, Steven. I couldn't help but get drawn into the mystery, playing detective alongside Mia and her friend, Bronwyn. Dillon had me

Phantom Audition is one of the absolute best books I have recently read.

Author, Simon Dillon, carves a brilliant mystery with unforgettable characters, including a cryptic psychic medium.

You will follow Mia, Dillon’s main character, as she seeks to uncover the truth behind her husband’s death. Was it suicide, or murder? Had her husband joined a dangerous secret society which conspired with dead spirits to advantage his acting career?

With plenty of suspicious characters, you will be enticed to

"I love this story with all of it's puzzles and strong emotion. Mia is a complex main character who is lost in grief after her husband's death. She is searching not only for answers, but also to be able to own her own skin again. She feels lost in her husband's shadow and is determined to come into her own. The way Simon weaves the side characters into the plot, revealing more and more secrets to the puzzle is genius. The setting also felt like an additional character, which I loved so much. I ...more

An extremely well written mystery thriller novel that kept you guessing at what was going on. After the death of her husband young Mia is left alone and feeling that nothing is truly as it seems. Was her husband's death an accident or was it something more sinister? The search for answers is haunting and might even come close to being deadly.
What trials and tribulations will she have to go through to get to the truth?

Simon Dillon has done it again with this intriguing mystery.

You will find yourself caught up in this page turner trying to figure out if the mysterious death of Steven was a murder or a suicide.

I had no idea how it was going to end and I like a mystery that isn't easily figured out early on in the novel.

An excellent read!
