What an amazing book!! This book gripped me from page 1 & I couldn't put it down. The characters have such a believable depth. I feel like I know them & I didn't want this story to end. It was action packed, terrifying at times, and the love story intertwined within was beautiful. The ending completely surprised me!! I could NEVER have imagined this ending! How completely creative! I hope there are more to come from this author. E Rose

I thoroughly enjoyed reading In the Shadow of Greed. The story kept me hooked from the first chapter, awaking emotions - in particular fear, followed by an the overwhelming love expressed from one sister to the other. Suspense kept me turning pages while the underlying romance between the heroine and the detective kept me intrigued with the thrills and uncertainties of new love. I felt so close to the characters that the end made me curious about the rest. I highly recommend In the Shadow of Greed as a fast-paced and very interesting read.

This is a very fast paced book, it will keep your interest and you won't be able to put it down.  Nancy C. Weeks did a great job keeping the reader intrigued and wanting more at the end; the characters are so likable with a great hero and heroine.  Being an IT Geek, this book really peaked my interest.  I can't wait for her next book and I hope we keep hearing more from Dr. Sarah Tu and Special Agent Jason McNeil. I definitely recommend this book, you will not be disappointed.

I really liked this book. It was a well written, suspenseful, mind teaser with interesting protagonists and plot twists that held my interest. As steeped in modern cyber-crime and advanced technology as it was, it still managed to layer a little paranormal into the fiber optics of the story line.  Well done, Ms. Week. Well done.   I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

IN THE SHADOW OF GREED, the debut romantic suspense novel by author Nancy C. Weeks, is an edge-of-your-seat cyber thriller neatly intertwined with a sizzling hot romance between the hero and heroine of the story. There’s even a dash of sixth sense communication thrown into the mix, which ends up playing quiet an important role in the lives of the characters, even if its occurrence is never really fully explained or contemplated. Ms. Weeks had produced an exciting, face-paced read that will have you turning pages well after you should have called it a day. You simply must find out what happens next and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for future books in the series to explore the tantalizingly hot McNeil clan. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and found the techno-speak easy to understand and unobtrusive, even for a cyber-idiot like me. If you’re looking for a fantastic romantic suspense full of Internet espionage twists and turns, IN THE SHADOW OF GREED, is the book for you! ***I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review.

Reviewed by Nadene R. Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book After reading In The Shadow of Evil, I was eager to read In the Shadow of Greed as such when the opportunity came for me to read and review it I never hesitated. On completion the only thing I could say was WOW! What a ride. This book was worth every moment of reading. It’s very difficult for me to say of the two which was my favorite, as they were both good in their own way. I was hooked from the very first paragraph. The story- line was very entertaining. My only peeve is that I felt that the matter of the serial killer could have been better developed. It may have not been the main focus of the story but it was what led to the main characters ( Dr. Sarah Tu and police detective Jason McNeil) coming into contact with each other. My main disappointment came from the fact that it was also touched on in the previous book and I was hoping that this title would have shed more light on it. In The Shadow of Greed is classified as a romantic suspense and rightly so. It held the right mixture of romance, suspense and mystery to hold my interest. I was literally on edge of my seat and I could not wait to find out what was going to happen next. While reading, the television series, Numbers came to mind. The characters were likable and engaging and it was easy to understand what they were experiencing. It was not easy to figure out who the villain was. Just when you might believe that you have it figured out another twist is introduced that leaves you wondering what the heck is happening here. The romance between Sarah and Jason took some time to develop. Sarah was feeling guilty about her sister’s murder and felt that she did not deserve any happiness and so even though found herself quite attracted to Jason she tried to avoid getting involve with him. As the saying goes ‘The path to true love is never easy’. These two were a testament to that saying. There were times that Sarah made me want to scream. For someone so brilliant she could be really clueless. Ms. Weeks writing style was quite descriptive which makes the reader feel as if they are actually apart of the story. If you love suspense with romance in the mix, then this book would be right up your street. So go and get a copy ASAP. It will be worth it.

4.5 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed Nancy C. Weeks's debut novel, IN THE SHADOW OF GREED, because it has an original plot involving a unique heroine, Sarah Tu, an Asian-American woman scientist, mathematician, and computer guru, who works for a cyber-security company called NORAN. Although the plot falls squarely into the romantic suspense genre, it has a tantalizing paranormal element as well, because of psychic messages sent to Sarah and the hero, FBI agent Jason McNeil, via Sarah's sister, Hanna. I was so interested in this I wish there had been more as to the why and how of these tantalizing psychic connections. That being said, this is a wonderful read and a page-turner, and I truly appreciated Ms. Weeks's excellent research about computers, mathematics, cyber-terrorism, and police/FBI procedures. I've heard there is a sequel in the works, and I look forward to reading about the further adventures of Sarah and Jason, and the rest of the McNeil clan.

What a superb plot. And an extraordinaire heroine in a field I haven't read yet, computers and math--I think my kids former science/math teacher would be geeking out right now. With a splash of the supernatural. All combinations for a great romantic suspense techno thriller. Dr. Sarah Tu and Detective/Agent Jason McNeil have been targeted by a ruthless thug. And they have no idea why. On the run, they try to piece together the mystery while trying to keep themselves alive. Along the way the get a little help from Sarah's sister. A showdown in the end loaded with all the action I just love. The McNeil family dragged me, I love big families. And Sarah's toughness that masks the real woman inside is endearing, she's my kind of heroine. Weeks did a fabulous job in her research in writing this book and it shone through. And I'm happy to hear Weeks has a second book with one of the McNeil brothers coming. If everything I described above trips your trigger, then I suggest reading this book. You won't be disappointed. I was given an ARC in exchange for a fair review.

When I first began reading Nancy Weeks' IN THE SHADOW OF GREED, I was immediately engaged by her main character, Dr. Sarah Tu. Attentive to the point of being obsessed with her top-secret work on a cybercrime, Sarah is so engrossed in her work, she misses the time to meet her ever-patient and forgiving sister, Hanna, to go on a vacation. That lapse allows a serial killer, who has been stalking Hanna, the opportunity to torture and kill Hanna. When Sarah arrives at blood bath, her world is crushed. Driven by guilt and remorse, Sarah spends every available moment at her comatose sister's side at a rehabilitation facility. Much to her chagrin, so does Jason McNeil, a hard-bodied slab of a cop who had been trailing the serial killer. Jason is consumed with rage over the loss of yet another woman to this monster. Hanna should have never been left to his cruel devices. Jason feels he should have arrested this animal months before. Now he visits Hanna on a regular basis and runs into the very attractive, intensely private Sarah Tu almost every time he visits. The attraction between Jason and Sarah crackles off the page, however, Sarah's ability to shut down her emotions pushes him away at every turn. At last, he decides to leave the area for a geographic cure for his heartache and guilt. However, as the saying goes, "Wherever I go, I take myself" is true for Jason, too. He could no more forget Sarah than she can forget him. Fate and the forces of evil conspire to bring them back with a bang. No spoilers coming from me! I very much enjoyed this story and learned a lot about cybercrime without feeling as if I was being lectured. Nancy Weeks did her research and it showed. I was delighted when it went off the pure police procedural/cyber forensics track to a paranormal romantic suspense story firmly anchored in solid police work and computer sciences. This book took me for a fun filled ride with enough twists and turns to keep me flipping through my Kindle late at night. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars. flag Post a comment » Comments No comments have been added yet.
