Two women. One goal. To uncover the truth no matter the cost.

A survivor of rape and her husband's murder, all Becca Rosen wants to do is move on with her life, but how can she when she's being stalked by a psychopath with an attitude---and an agenda. The police are no help because they're convinced, with her history of mental illness, Becca has faked the rape to get away with her husband's murder. On top of that, Becca has begun to have flashbacks of childhood abuse, possibly at the hands of the rapist. Not knowing where to turn, and feeling like she might go crazy again, Becca hires Psychologist, Sarah Abrams, to help her unearth who's behind the crimes of the past...and the present.  

Three men come into Becca's life around the same time. While each of these men has his charms, Becca can't be certain whether any one of them is the perpetrator. Or could it be someone else? Together Becca and Sarah start on a course of hypnotherapy to discover abuser's identity. Will their work reveal the real killer before it's too late, or will Becca fall prey once again to this demented criminal?

 Like the layers of an onion, OUT OF THE SHADOW peels away personalities, motivations, underlying motives, and dark, long-hidden secrets that immerse a circle of people in a web of dangerous associations. The conclusion is riveting, unexpected, and as satisfying as the rising psychological suspense which begins from the first page and ends with a bang.   D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

       This is such a terrific page-turner that I lost sleep on the three nights that it took for me to complete it.  By the time I was two-thirds of the way through, I couldn't stand it any longer; I cheated and checked out the ending--and I was blown away. I hope J. K. Winn writes her second novel very, very soon. Next time, I'll try hard not to start with the last chapter.  Debra Sponable, Nights and Weekends

       Winn's suspenseful thriller thrusts readers into the intense trauma that may be Becca Rosen's psychological undoing...A dynamic thrilling read for readers willing to focus on more than one perspective.  Kirkus Reviews

Disjointed, far fetched, disturbing, predictable... That doesn't even begin to describe it. You get what you pay for, i think it was free

A little slow in some areas but worth reading. Just when you think you have it figured out..........there comes another twist. The ending is NOT what I expected!!!

Found that a few parts of the book could have been written a little better but overall I enjoyed it. Completely believable? No, but not a terrible story line either.

I hated this 170 page book. It has child sexual abuse, murder, rape, other violence, a cat getting killed as an act of revenge, a very annoying shrink, a confusing format and the main character is an idiot. The shrink is giving a lecture on the problems of the main character, while the plot of the book is being acted out by the main character in flash backs. The rape is pretty descriptive. The murders are pretty bad. The cat killing was not necessary and added nothing to the story. On the author's brag page, graduate degrees were listed as one of her achievements. Good for, but perhaps she needs to return to college and take another writing class. This book was very boring and if the shock values were removed, there would be nothing of reading value left. For adults. AD

Has a graphic rape scene from the first page. If that isn't enough to put you off, the next scene is the victim's so-called therapist reading the rape scene from her supposed 'scholarly' book. That's what offended me. First of all, anyone who has ever been to a conference knows that presentations are not done in that way - that's not scholarship, that's like a book signing. I have an MS in psychology and am published, and nothing like this has ever been done at a conference, nor will it ever be. It is just unprofessional and, honestly, tacky. When asked to explain how the protagonist can protect the anonymity of her client, she states she uses a pseudonym and only identifies the criminals. How hard would that be, in real life, to track down the victim by knowing who the attacker was? It's ridiculous and dumb. So, I have deleted this off my Nook. I'm so glad it was free. I suggest the author do more research before she writes her next book. Being a therapist is much more than just, say, watching Dr Phil.
