Shadowlands is one creepy story that you will not put down until the very last page and then you realize that you have not been breathing. Rory takes a short cut through the woods to get home one afternoon and is attacked in the most horrible way possible from someone she knows and trusts - her teacher. She fights back and barely survives only to find herself and her family still victims as the killer is still on the loose. Leaving everything behind they join the witness protection program and move to an island far from home. Rory, her sister and dad must try and fit into their new life. The creepy part is that she still has vivid dreams about the killer and begins to see him at every turn, hear the tune he whistles, see his messenger bag which of course no one takes seriously. She begins to make new friends but still doesn't trust all of them and is puzzled by some of the mysterious incidents that have been happening in town. I won't spoil this unusual conclusion but it is one you won't see coming. Prepare to read this in one sitting, with all the lights on and lots of people around you. I read this as an advance copy. Shadowlands is scheduled to be published in January.
