Police departments in California called him the “Dream Walker,” because he could get into anyone’s dreams and have them act out his erotic fantasies’, mostly he used it with young married couples. But no one was safe from him. The police didn’t really believe the sexy stories the women told; they thought they were too far-fetched. How could someone get into your dreams and make you do something that you didn’t want to do? The police thought it a waste of time looking for him, and if they caught him they didn’t know what to charge him with, other than “the invasion of the mind”.

The FBI thought differently. They called him “The Magic Man”, because he could hypnotize you while you slept. And come the morning you would go about your day normally until he wanted you back under his control, doing his bidding. When you had done’ his bidding you would snap out of your trance state, not knowing where you were or what you had just done.
Rosemary Burrows, a profiler for the FBI, was given his file and could see The Magic Man, as they had nicknamed him, being an asset to her team. He could get into the criminals’ minds and get them to confess their crimes.

The CIA saw him as a weapon to read minds of the leaders of the world; to be the greatest spy ever. And he could plant ideas in the minds of politicians in the USA as well as in foreign countries while they slept. The CIA could see endless uses for his powers, and they wanted him caught to test those powers in their labs.

Homeland Security saw him as a threat to the President and the country: if he was caught by a foreign power, they could use him to wreck the USA’s economy, and do more damage than any terrorist...
Frank Brubaker was given the task of finding the magic man first, and eliminating the threat.

For years The Magic Man had used his gift to played out his sexual fantasies in people’s dreams’, and stayed one step ahead of the law. That was until he had gotten into Alice and John Timberlake’s dreams; had he’d gone too far this time?.

What if someone could get into your dreams?  Possible?  The book was an interesting read, the characters each had their own personalities. They were sort of a boring group, rather self centered. None of them are very easy to like.The story was based in California. The author used a lot of British slang which is a little strange that the story is in California.I kept trying to figure out who Joe was.  Who was Joe?  Just imagine if someone could creep into your private dreams and then using your dreams to control you.  Scary and creepy, isn't it? The Magic Man can take you on erotic thrills and then he gets  satisfaction from it. You wake up the next day and go about your way until The Magic Man decides to slip into that mind again and do his bidding.  Afterwards you would not know where you were or what you'd been doing.  It was like you were in a trance.
Frank Brubaker was looking for him as some people see him as a danger to the security of the nation. Others, such as the FBI see him as a way to solve crimes that don't seem to be solvable.  The police are after him for both reasons.  Some think he should be killed, that he is that much of a threat.  The police didn't really believe the stories they were told by those who had been invaded.  Even if they caught him, what would they charge him with.? They called him the Dream Walker. Had the Magic Man gone too far when he got into Alice and John Timberlake's dreams?

They author wrote a rather creepy but interesting story about dream invasion.  What if this could really happen?  Would you be afraid to go to sleep at night?  It does make you wonder.  I had only the one problem with the book and that was mixing British slang and words into a California setting.  Other than that the author wrote a "what if" creepy, scary but thought provoking novel.  I loved it.  Just imagine, someone screwing with your dreams whenever he wants.  Mind bending.   Go out and get yourself a copy of GET OUT OF MY DREAMS by Allan J. Lewis and see what you think.
Well worth the buy.

I would give this book 4 QUESTION MARKS.

I was given a complimentary copy of GET OUT OF MY DREAMS from the author, Allan J. Lewis for my honest opinion.  No other compensation was exchanged.
Allan John Lewis was born, a son of a coal miner, in August 1939, just before the outbreak of World War 2.
He started work underground for the National Coal Board on his fifteenth birthday. He married in March 1961 and has two children, a daughter and a son, both now married. His daughter has a daughter, and his son has a son.
Deep down he always wanted to be a writer but he felt thwarted by his lack of education. He would write a few pages and give up, frustrated by spelling and grammar. (This was before the days of personal computers.) As a young man he didn’t have much time to read or write. He was working two shifts on the coalface, and when his daughter came along he got himself another job as a part-time fireman. 
By the time he was in his late forties and his two children had married, he found time to start reading again. He enjoyed the adventure novels of Wilbur Smith and the works of James Patterson and Lee Child. He loved crime thrillers.
The pleasure he found in reading rekindled his desire to write.
He would create stories in his head, but never put pen to paper in earnest until he retired.
Then with the help and encouragement of his son he worked on five action novels to a first draft stage.
Get Out of My Dreams is his sixth novel and the first he has brought to publication. A follow up story is already in preparation.
