Elías Mendoza’s personal vendetta against the McKenzie family rests on Jennie’s shoulders. As she cradles the bullet-ridden body of her ten-year old student, she knows Mendoza is responsible. Quinton’s death is a message. Jennie’s life belongs to only Mendoza. But she has her own message. No one else dies. Her life means nothing as long as Mendoza is free.
Jared McNeil has spent ten years with Maryland’s Special Crime Unit and very little rattles him. When the haunted teenager he once tried to protect walks into his precinct now a beautiful woman, he wants nothing more than to wrap her in his arms and never let her go. But he soon realizes she is there only to settle her debts before she goes after his nemesis, Mendoza. Jared’s vow to stay away from Jennie until the task force destroys Mendoza now means nothing.
What Jared and Jennie don't understand is there are forces at play greater than the evil shadowing them, but time is running out. United, they can do anything. Alone, they will fail.

Jennie McKenzie, Jared McNeil and Elias Mendoza form a triangle full of suspense, passion and danger. Only 16 years-old when the story opens, Jennie recognizes that Jared will be an important person in her life. Mendoza's obsession and lust for revenge creates a twisted longing for Jennie that Jared knows he must prevent. The characters are well drawn and likeable - except for Mendoza and his men whom you love to hate!The plot takes twists and turns that I never saw coming including connections to the Ms. Week's first novel In the Shadow of Greed. Heart-pounding, danger-at-every-turn action kept me riveted to this book. I recommend In the Shadow of Evil to readers who enjoy a mix of romance and suspense. I have In the Shadow of Greed loaded and ready to read on my Kindle!
This is Nancy c. Weeks second book and it did not disappoint. This book is a page turner and full of intrigue and mystery, it will keep you turning the pages. I love that the McNeil brothers are back; I love their story and characters. Ms. Weeks is very talented and I hope she keeps the books coming, can not wait for the next one.
