I have read all of Helen Fields’ novels and look forward to each and every one of them. This is a stand-alone novel and introduces Dr. Connie Woolwine who is a forensic psychologist from the US and Detective Brodie Baarda who is in Scotland assisting the local police.
The two are working together to track down murders and disappearances. The case develops and although they do not know each other they soon learn to trust each other’s way of working.
Elspeth, Maggie and Xavier are locked together in a flat, being held captive by the shadow man who is becoming more brazen with each attack.
The search becomes more and more urgent and the characters develop with the author’s usual precision with romantic undercurrents and clever dialogue. Cleverly plotted with some scary moments.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Avon Books and Helen Fields for my ARC of The Shadow Man in return for my honest review.
Brilliant. Highly recommended.
