Sophie Dunston is close to her parents so she and her son Michael are spending time with them. Out of the blue her dad kills the wife he loves and cherishes and points the gun at his grandson. Sophie gets shot when she steps in between her two men. Later she learns that the sleep therapist her father was seeing was a minion of her first employer, Sanborne. She invented Rem-4, a drug that allowed people to be influenced into doing things while they sleep. When Sophie realized that Sanborne plans to sell the dangerous product to the highest bidder, she left him.-------------- Sanborne believes that Sophie is a loose end that he intends to get rid of starting with what happened to her dad. She proves difficult to kill ever since Royd entered her life as he was once one of Sanborne┬┐s brainwashed killers who broke through the conditioning. Like Sophie he plans to bring Sanborne down and destroy Rem-4. Sophie and Royd are attracted to one another, but they have a mission that needs to be finished before they can consider exploring a future together.--------------- Once again Iris Johansen writes a thriller that will grip readers so much that they will ignore any other nearby activity. The story-line contains so much action fans will believe they are on a looping roller coaster unable to catch their breath before plunging into the next spin. KILLER DREAMS is filled with adventure, but the romantic subplot between the two protagonists feels right as a natural outcome of what they have suffered, enhancing an adrenaline pumping thriller.------------ Harriet Klausner

I've read all of this author's thrillers and really think she should go back to what she does best...ie Eve Duncan forensic sculptor series was excellent but this book and several before it are really not good reading. The plots are way over the top and childish..even the romance subjects don't click! Go back to Ugly Duckling, Then You Die,Face of Deception etc!!!!

    Favorite Iris book

    I havent read too many of this authors book. This book is one of my favorites of hers. Its never boring. You cant put it down. Theres a lot of action with a romantic flare to it which makes it even better. The ending is the best part.

    Great, Great, Great :)

    Iris Johansen rarely disappoints me. This was a great, well writen book. I read it over the course of 8 hours. Could not put it down. Kept you on the edge of your seat. If you're a fan of hers, be sure to read this one, you'll be glad you did.

    Synopsis

    #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen returns with a new suspense thriller guaranteed to keep readers turning pages all night long¿an adrenaline-laced shocker that pits a mother and son against a killer who¿s the stuff of nightmares. If you close your eyes, he¿ll get you. Sophie Dunston knows all too well how dreams can kill. As one of the nation¿s top sleep therapists, she specializes in the life-threatening night terrors that her ten-year-old son, Michael, suffers from. But she is also an expert in another kind of terror¿the kind that can turn a dream life into a living nightmare in the blink of an eye. Someone is watching. He¿s a shadowy figure from out of her darkest fears and he hasn¿t forgotten her. In one shocking moment of violence, he¿d shattered Sophie¿s world forever and left her with only one thing to live for: her son. But the nightmare isn¿t over for Sophie Dunston. It¿s just begun. He¿s been waiting. Sophie was supposed to die the first time around, but fate intervened. This time he¿ll make sure that not even a miracle will save her. It wasn¿t a miracle that saved Jock Gavin, but it was pretty close. A semiretired hit man, commando, and jack-of-all-deadly-trades, he knows what Sophie is up against¿and that she¿ll need help. But the man he¿s chosen for the job is as unpredictable as he is dangerous. Matt Royd is a wild card¿hard, cool, merciless¿and putting him into play changes the game completely. But to whose advantage? Sophie will soon find out. She will have to trust Royd because she has no choices left. Because the bogeyman haunting her dreams is all too real and he¿s on the hunt again. Because the nightmare he¿s got planned for Sophie won¿t end when she wakes up screaming. It won¿t end. Ever.
