About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Shadow Man by Mark Murphy

My Thoughts:

 The Shadow Man had me reading deep into the night.  I could not put the book down.  The storyline is gripping, with a razor sharp edge.  Seemingly random, brutal murders are somehow linked to surgeon, Malcolm King.  Is he a serial killer or is he being targeted in a deadly game of cat and mouse?  Malcolm King's picture perfect life is ripped to shreds as he struggles to find the answers that will save his life.  Horrifying pieces of the puzzle are revealed to the reader bit by bit and just when you think you may know what's going on, another wrinkle is discovered.  The Shadow Man does not lose momentum even for a second.  Twists and turns are delivered until the very last page!  Mark Murphy doesn't give you a chance to catch your breath and, believe me, you'll relish every second.  Great Christmas gift for the suspense lover!

More about The Shadow Man:

Savannah surgeon Malcolm King had a perfect life--a loving wife, devoted daughter, and a thriving medical practice. But when a random airport parking lot hit-and-run links him to a dead body in a Florida hotel and an acquaintance is found dismembered and stuffed into a garbage bag, Malcolm finds himself on the run as a suspected serial killer. But he's no murderer. Or is he?

Who is the mysterious Thin Man who lurks at the edges of his vision? Are the ravens that crowd the skies overhead a warning of impending doom--or do they exist at all?
With the help of Seminole tracker Billy Littlebear, Malcolm tries to untangle the web of clues left behind by a mysterious chameleon-like killer known as the Shadow Man. But will he be too late?The Shadow Man is a complex, atmospheric thriller in the tradition of Stephen King. Darkly evocative and relentless in its twists and turns, it dares the reader to put it down--even for a minute.
