Overview

He can hear a whisper a block away… and can't remember why.

Open your mind, to a city where mystery chases up and down office back stairways, turns brother against brother, and plays out on frozen sidewalks where lives may be shattered if the enemy even looks at the ragged man passing by in the crowd—and even that man cannot guess what memory will be next to batter his mind.

Paul was no detective, no thief, only a student trying to get some distance from his father and brother. When he found himself marked by the power to enhance his senses, he had only that treacherous gift and what few tricks he dared to teach himself, to search for some explanation—or at least the chance to give it meaning by exposing a few petty corruptions.

Paul thought if he lived in poverty to keep his existence secret from the world, at least nobody could force him to use that gift as a weapon against others. But just when he thought he was untouchable, the last thing he expected shakes his world and drags him into the perils of his family, his power, and two women who each have a different claim on his life.

As Paul begins to play cat and mouse with enemies he can't even name, he must break every rule that's kept him alive, in every frantic chase and every gamble he makes to break his family free. And all the while, he knows his greatest enemy may still be what lies behind his own secrets.

If you think you know everything a paranormal thriller can do, take a closer look.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This was an amazing suspense tale. Before I realized it, I had read the book through in one evening." --Amazon review

"Ken Hughes breaks into the genre promising to transcend suspense to a whole new level.
It is refreshing to see an author's debut transcend the genre of fiction, adding to it a fresh, new perspective of a paranormal thriller. SHADOWED is compelling, suspenseful and irresistibly entertaining. Hughes proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he can create a spine-tingling thriller with gutsy twists and page-turning suspense. You will not be disappointed." --Ace Antonio, author of The Confessions of Sylva Slasher

"Paranormal thrillers are a dime-a-dozen these days, and they more often than not involve handsome, brooding undead heroes, but SHADOWED is refreshingly different. Author Ken Hughes has created in Paul Schuman a protagonist who is very much human, despite a superhuman ability, and it is his very humanity that makes him so believable. I was pulled in, wanting to know more about Paul's and Lorraine's abilities, and equally important, the backdrop of intrigue and scandal that the story plays out against. Fast-paced, well-plotted with a likable protagonist and an ending that leaves the story open for a sequel, SHADOWED is a helluva fun read, and won't disappoint fans of either normal or paranormal-genre thrillers." --Leslie Ann Moore, author of the award-winning GRIFFIN'S DAUGHTER Trilogy

This is the first paranormal mystery that I have read or reviewed, so I didn’t know what to expect. The paranormal activity was easy to understand, but the plot had so many twists and turns that I kept wishing for some back story. Of course this is a mystery, so that had to develop throughout the course of the book. While the book was well written and fast paced, I never felt grounded enough to feel at home with the story. Perhaps my unfamiliarity with the genre held me back. At the end, there was a resolution, but many issues remained open. Perhaps this is intentionally open ended, leading to future volumes in a series. Perhaps not. I can’t read the author’s mind.
