From the New York Times bestselling author comes a novel of suspense so terrifying it may make you afraid of the dark...
Allison Taylor MacKenna feels as though she's awakened at last from a ten-year-long nightmare. But her darkest hour has yet to come.
Nestled in the warm, domestic cocoon of loving husband and family, Allison finally feels safe - unaware that a stranger's brutal murder on a Caribbean island is the first step in an intricate plan to destroy everything in her life.
For seasoned NYPD Detective Rocky Manzillo, the signs are clear that something terrible has emerged from the shadows, a murder victim left without a face and a faded photograph that yields a startling connection.
Now, as Allison's murky memories of a troubled childhood creep back to light, a cunning predator who shares her history prepares to enact a horrifying retribution - and won't stop killing until Allison face a shocking truth...and pays the ultimate price.
I didn't enjoy this novel nearly as much as I have other Staub novels. It seems to me that Ms. Staub is almost trying to rush to see how many books she can pump out in a year or so and this, I personally feel, is affecting her writing immensely. I used to be completely glued to the pages of her books but found this one to be a bit of a yawner to be quite honest and felt it went on and on a bit too long in places, almost as if she is adding words just to lengthen the novel. I was a tad disappointed in this book and wouldn't necessarily recommend it. However, someone else might pick it up and think it's the best book they've ever read, but after having read every single book Ms. Staub has ever written to date, this one was a complete let down for me.
If you love good mystery stories this book is for you. I know it was fiction but it still kept me reading and buying
her next book. Enjoy
Shadowkiller is the last installment in the Nightwatcher trilogy. When I was asked to read this book I decided to go out and get the first 2. Though this book can be read as a stand alone, it was definitely better understood having read in order. And let me say it was a great read. I don't normally read thriller type books but after reading this series I was hooked on Wendy's writing. This series along with her other books are a must read! Even if they made me sleep with the tv on for about a week *lol*
Shadowkiller ends the trilogy involving Allison Taylor and James "Mack" MacKenna. Allison met Mack, her now husband, when she lived in Manhattan in her apartment that was across the hall from Mack and his wife. Mack's wife was killed in the 9-11 tragedy and Allison's friend was murdered in their apartment building.
Within the three books numerous things happen.....the first book is written with the tragedy of 9-11 and a serial killer on the loose
The second with the now married Allison and Mack, a stalker threatens to break the family apart and kill.
And the third book with its many twists keeps you on your toes.

Interesting thriller. I did not read the other part of the trilogy and found this to be a little confusing at times but it might have been too predictable if I had read the others... Read morePublished 14 months ago by Amazon Customer
