Elizabeth Murdock is absolutely in love with the old Edwards home in the small town of Brettinger, Tennessee. As an artist, she is excited to capture the area's natural beauty through her camera lens. However, Allan Murdock has kept a few minor details from his wife, knowing she would never willingly move into a "murder house."
The truth about their new, beautiful home goes far beyond what Allan knows, though. Something unnatural has come to Brettinger. A creature lives along the edge of the woods. It is a dark figure, imagined in the twist of branch and bush-a thing of myth, seeking vengeance and using the citizens of Brettinger to exact its final, bloody revenge.
After digitally capturing an odd image on her camera, Elizabeth's excitement is short-lived, as only the crazy neighbor, Angelina Buscold, will admit to seeing a figure standing among the pines. Angelina saw the same figure when she was just a child and now knows she needs Elizabeth's help or no one in Brettinger will be saved from the Shadowman.

I loved every cover and page of the book! I think it's more of a diary of what the featured characters think of Gabe,what type of person he was,his goals,what he did in his short life,and how they were effected by his death. His girlfriend and dad seemed to have more of an impact with Gabes death. This book is,in my opinion,the best book on the market. It's my favorite and people who get critical are just not realizing the hole point and intention of Cynthia's writings in the book. It has great detail and has thoughts and ideas of more than one character,which in unique. That also brings out the feelings the characters and the book itself are trying to express. I love the book and it IS my FAVORITE and always will be. The title made me want to find out what he book was about and I love it from the first word said.
I thought Shadow Man was one of the best books I have ever read! The story was great. I picked it up in my school library for a book report. I read the book in three days because I found it so interesting I couldn't put it down. It's really a great book.
