Let’s Review: Hidden in Dreams by Davis Bunn

Dreams.  They have been a fascination throughout the history of mankind.  They are common place and yet mysterious.  We wonder at their origin and their purpose.  Biblical accounts tell us of divine warnings to mitigate future disaster.  Disney tells us, “a dream is a wish your heart makes.”  Dickens tells us dreams are the result of a bit of moldy bread or an underdone turnip.  In “Hidden in Dreams” by Davis Bunn a brand new possibility is presented.

Book 2 of the Elena Burroughs series, Hidden in Dreams  stands alone and is a quick-paced story of intrigue and impending world-wide financial collapse forewarned by a series of dreams.  Are these dreams a divine warning or is something more sinister afoot?  Dr. Burroughs and some unlikely allies unexpectedly find themselves in the position to unravel the mystery.

Hidden in Dreams is a good read.  It brings together engaging characters, a  believable plot set amidst contemporary themes and a refreshing perspective.  It made for lighter reading than other titles of similar genre (mystery/psychological fiction).  I give this title a 4-star rating.
