While I had a few technical glitches (I tried to transfer my PDF version of the book to my Kindle, but ended up with missing pages) Derksen still kept me intrigued. She is a very good mystery writer and is quite adept at pulling you into the story. Christine Finder, aka Melissa Rompart, saw her parents viciously murdered when she was a child, unfortunately she also saw the killer and he has been after her ever since. After relocating to Canada, changing her name and setting up her own detective agency called Finder's Keepers, she is hired to look for a missing boy. But Christine's killer is still tracking her. Could it be he has tracked her all the way to Canada? In the meantime, Jeremy Goodman has his own detective agency and two problems to solve - one is protecting Christine and the other is finding an old man who wandered away from a nursing home. Will Christine trust him enough to let him into her life? Will they be able to work together to find the boy and the man? Or will Christine's stalker find them? You'll have to read the book to find out!
Shadow Stalker still pulled me in from the first page and I'm glad I did not give up on it, despite (as I said) technical glitches. If you like mysteries, you will enjoy this one!
I give Shadow Stalker 4/5 stars.
Melissa Rompart experienced a horror no child should see. She was a witness to the brutal murder of her parents. Because the killer saw her, she changed her identity to Christine Finder. As an adult, she created and operated an agency to find lost children. Her K-9 companion, Chief, partners her.
I was so excited to review this book. It sounded like a real page turner. When I read the prologue to this book, I was sucked right in. It grabbed me by the throat and made me catch my breath. It seemed that my expectations were spot on.
Unfortunately, that's where the thrill ended. The story line of this book is really, really good. However, the author could have benefited from more editing. I am a harsh critic when comes to misspellings, grammatical errors and repeated text in published books. This book contains many typographical errors that are impossible to overlook.
There was a large section of text that was printed in the wrong spot, and then reprinted again in the correct spot. To me, in a published book, that is inexcusable.
I found the text laborious. It was quite wordy; for example, the author seemed to choose 20 words when 5 would have been sufficient. The excitement of the story got lost in the verbosity of the text.
As I said, the story line was really good. I liked the characters and the plot. However, I couldn't get past the errors and the redundancy of the writing.
she got my attention with the characters. I wasn't sure at first by the title if
it was a book I would like to read but I soon found that is was very good.
I usually am pretty good at guessing as to what is going to happen next but
there were many twists and turns in this tale. I didn't realize that this was the
first book in a series so now I am anxious to read the next one.
I felt like Christine finder was a very real character and I could relate
easily to her pain and hurt. She seems to be running away not just
from her parents murderer but from God as well. It seems as though she
would like to melt into the world and not be noticed and yet at the same time
she wants to save the world. She opens a agency to Find people which is
interesting because she does not want to be found. She has a lot of strength
and courage that seems to come from her inner survival.
Jeremy walks in and ruffles her being. He is everything she is trying
to stay away from and works in a similar profession. He is strong and
someone she would find her self leaning on. He loves God and
shows his grace. She is afraid of loving and being loved.
So the two of them have a tension between them throughout the book.
Jeremy tries to keep Christine safe but she wants to take care of herself.
Soon she realizes a little help isn't all that bad and the two end up
helping each other in their cases.
This is an edge of the seat read. If you like series and action than
this is the book for you.

I had to make myself finish the book. The most appealing character in the story was the dog. The part where the old man finds the lost boy was not believable. Read morePublished 15 months ago by jayjay
