Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Edge of your seat #5* #CrimeThriller – Shadow Falls by Wendy Dranfield


Title: Shadow Falls

Series: Detective Madison Harper Book 1

Author: Wendy Dranfield

Publisher: Bookouture


My Review:

This is a story that stays with you long after you’ve read it . . . A page turner you won’t want to put down until you’ve reached the shocking conclusion and so much is revealed but more questions are raised leaving you eagerly anticipating the opportunity to read the next story in this series to discover what happens.

I actually finished reading this the day before I started this review. I needed time to think about the story and my reactions to it, it is that sort of story. . . . and I’m still not certain how to portray just how amazing a read it is without giving spoilers away.

Detective Madison Harper is no longer a police detective. She’s been released from jail after spending time there for a murder she did not commit, one that leaves her wary of trusting her ex-colleagues and determined to clear her name. Undaunted, she seeks the help of someone who has had his name cleared after spending seventeen years on death row for the murder of his fiancée. He’s now working as an investigator, though he isn’t licensed to do so. Madison wants his help to clear her name and will work with him on cases in the meanwhile.

Their first case is working for a grandmother who is distraught after her granddaughter goes missing whilst participating in a summer camp at Shadow Falls. . . . Get ready for a suspense filled, dramatic and emotive story, filled with so many twists and turns to keep you guessing and turning those pages. There are so many disturbing aspects to the whole story it really is a superb thriller and the start of a brilliant new series.

Whilst not appropriate for anyone looking for a cosy read, this is a story which explores relationships, highlights injustice and keeps you enthralled from the start to its shocking conclusion. I can’t wait to continue reading more in this series and really hope that a couple of prison wardens get their just desserts before the series ends!

Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for my copy of this amazing book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
