The Shadow Man Book Summary
Dr. Malcolm King has an enviable life; he's a well-respected surgeon with a loving family. But everything starts to unravel when grisly murders occur and all evidence points to him. He contacts a longtime friend, Ben, who works in homicide. When every victim has a connection to Malcolm and various personal effects of his are found at the crime scenes, even Ben starts having his doubts.
Still, Ben manages to give Malcolm a heads up that the police are coming to arrest him. In a desperate attempt for more time to clear his name, Malcolm goes on the run and encounters Billy Littlebear. Billy says he's there to help and has details about the real murderer. Unfortunately, Malcolm doesn't know who to trust anymore, especially since the killer seems to know his every move. Is anyone safe from this mad man? Is Dr. King innocent? Is Billy really there to help?
I hesitate to offer much more summary, because it would take away from the experience of reading the book. Just when you think you can guess the next development, hold on. The author stays one step ahead of you with every turn of the page. A couple of times I considered jumping to the end to release the tension of not knowing, but I quickly realized I didn't want to miss one piece of the puzzle.
Pick up a copy and clear a day! Once you start reading, you will not be able to put it down. I highly recommend this novel to those who enjoy a fast-paced ride that will leave them guessing.
Rating: 4.5 stars
