Shadow Man

by

Shadow Man Cover

 

Staff Pick

Shadow Man is an electrifying and disturbing thriller that starts strong and stays taut with drama throughout. Cody McFadyen's debut novel is an incredibly riveting story that drags you by the throat, never lets you go, and leaves you gasping for breath until the end. In Shadow Man, McFadyen introduces Smokey Barrett, leader of an elite FBI team that hunts serial killers. Damaged, both emotionally and physically, at the hands of the monster that killed her husband and daughter, Barrett rejoins her team as they hunt a disturbing killer whose crimes are as horrific and shocking as they are atypical for a serial killer. This one will keep you up at night.

Publisher Comments:

Once, Special Agent Smoky Barrett hunted serial killers for the FBI. She was one of the best-until a madman terrorized her family, killed her husband and daughter, and left her face scarred and her soul brutalized. Turning the tables on the killer, Smoky shot him dead-but her life was shattered forever.

Now Smoky dreams about picking up her weapon again. She dreams about placing the cold steel between her lips and pulling the trigger one last time. Because for a woman whos lost everything, what is there left to lose?

Shes about to find out.

In all her years at the Bureau, Smoky has never encountered anyone like him-a new and fascinating kind of monster, a twisted genius who defies profilers attempts to understand him. And hes issued Smoky a direct challenge, coaxing her back from the brink with the only thing that could convince her to live.

The killer videotaped his latest crime-an act of horror that left a child motherless-then sent a message addressed to Agent Smoky Barrett. The message is enough to shock Smoky back to work, back to her FBI team. And that child awakens something in Smoky she thought was gone forever.

Suddenly the stakes are raised. The game has changed. For as this deranged monster embarks on an unspeakable spree of perversion and murder, Smoky is coming alive again-and shes about to face her greatest fears as a cop, a woman, a mother…and a merciless killers next victim.

From the Hardcover edition.
