A dark world has consumed Paul Schuman, a former student who now survives by taking small burglary jobs stealing secrets. Not knowing how or why, when he concentrates, Paul can hear and see things a block away. He also has the uncanny knack of blending into crowds so well, he can walk past his dad in a hallway, and the father fails to notice the son at his elbow.
Mixed in the muddle are Paul’s brother Greg, sister-in-law Lorraine, their father, and the family PR firm at risk from loan sharks. Add in a conspiracy about a research lab accused of mistreating animals and cops investigating Paul’s string of burglaries, and the result is the film noir tone of Paul’s Shadowed world.
Hughes used a deft hand mixing many story lines. The hopelessness of Paul’s noir world, and his confusion with the amnesia were so well put, many times the story dropped me onto the gritty streets with the muddled hero. The bad guy was deliciously evil. The chase scenes were great. Paul’s cleverness with outsmarting a guard dog was well done.
Some elements of Shadowed disappointed. Resolving the central mystery of how Paul acquired his paranormal senses and the resulting amnesia did not come out clearly at the end. Without a thought, Paul plunged into reckless situations that seemed at odds with his cautionary paranormal talents. Shadowed delved so deeply into Paul’s point of view that it was difficult in the first half of the story to figure out what was happening. Once there, I did not like my time in this anti-hero’s scrambled head. Despite these challenges, I am glad that I stayed with the story to the end and got some answers, but just like Paul Schuman, I struggled with just muddling through.
I received this book from Story Cartel to read and review. Paul loved his Father, and brother, but he knew that they
were into some shady deals. Paul didn't know how he got his powers, but he did know that a lot of people would try to use him . This story,was very interesting, and I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good Paranormal Thriller.
Using his heightened Senses, Paul tries to gather information and track down clues. He's hampered by his inability to remember, yet he's convinced there's a Reason for his superhuman powers.
On a deeper level, it's also a story of a father and sons, and a story of brothers. It's about people believing in each other, against the odds, in spite of lies and betrayals.
The book will thrill you, challenge you, and keep you along for the ride. Take a step into the Shadowed.
