Shadow of Danger (Book 1 C.O.R.E. Shadow Trilogy) by Kristine Mason

Beware of what lurks in the shadows...

Four women have been found dead in the outskirts of a small Wisconsin town. The only witness, clairvoyant Celeste Risinski, observes these brutal murders through violent nightmares and hellish visions. The local sheriff, who believes in Celeste's abilities and wants to rid their peaceful community of a killer, enlists the help of an old friend, Ian Scott, owner of a private criminal investigation agency, CORE. Because of Ian's dark history with Celeste's family, a history she knows nothing about, he sends his top criminalist, former FBI agent John Kain to investigate.

John doesn't believe in Celeste's mystic hocus-pocus, or in her visions of the murders. But just when he's certain they've solved the crimes, with the use of science and evidence, more dead bodies are discovered. Could this somehow be the work of the same killer or were they dealing with a copycat? To catch a vicious murderer, the skeptical criminalist reluctantly turns to the sensual psychic for help. Yet with each step closer to finding the killer, John finds himself one step closer to losing his heart.

I was generously provided a copy of this book by the author and Goddess Fish promotions in exchange for an honest review. My interest was caught immediately by the description. It looked extremely interesting, the kind of book that just hooks you and makes you want to finish it in just one night. It far surpassed my expectations! I just got finished reading it, and quite frankly had to immediately post a review. From the very beginning, the very first page, this author ropes you in and you love every moment of it! I felt like I was clairvoyant myself, experiencing all and seeing everything for myself as the horror of the situation unfolds. It is the sign of an excellent writer when they are able to do that. Celeste is a very well-thought out character that is easy to like. There is much more to her than the average character, though. As a clairvoyant she sees awful things, but she still tries to live a regular life. The book just flows from one exciting scene to another, as we watch the suspense and events unfold. Would I recommend Shadow of Danger? In a New York minute! This was an outstanding read, and I will definitely be looking for the next one. Author Rose Wynters

This is very well written and well thought out. I love how everything was connected and how the charcters were diverse and unique. This is definitely a page turner with a lot of action to keep the readers interest from wavering. I look forward to reading the other books by Mason.

Very good book. Well thought out plot. Kept you guessing right up to the end who the villian was. Despite one posters review there was no foul language. If you get offended by murder then this is not the book for you. This is a spine tingler though and i woulddeginately recommend it.

There’s nothing like a good suspense thriller to get the old endorphins pumping and Kristine delivers. I read this some time ago and recently realized I’d not written a review. I reread this in one night and it’s just as exciting the second time around. Celeste Risinski is a clairvoyant. It’s not something she wants. It just is. She’d be perfectly happy to skip the horrific visions and nightmares that jolt her, screaming, from her sleep. She senses something different about these dreams. A deeper, more personal connection. The sheriff calls on an old friend from CORE, a private investigation agency, to assist and apprehend the killer before he kills again. Ian, as owner, distances himself from Celeste because of a mysterious family history, and sends John Kain, an FBI agent, to help with the investigation. That’s about all I can tell you without spoilers. Let’s get to the good stuff. The characters. The two main ones are Celeste and John. John is wounded and bitter. He needs this case to get him back in the game. What he doesn’t need is some chick who thinks she has visions. Celeste is learning to better control her visions. To interpret and use them more efficiently. This also paints a target on her back. What she doesn’t need is some sexy know it all FBI guy scoffing at her. Brushing aside her visions as ridiculous. So you see what’s coming, don’t ya? Yep. These two meet. Sparks ignite. Even though they don’t much care about each other when they first meet, the chemistry is firing on both burners. I had as much fun following this reluctant yet burning romance as I did with the murder investigation. About that. Kristine leaves a trail of breadcrumbs for you to follow. The opening scenes are about a murder. But that doesn’t reveal who’s doing it or why. Trying to solve the crime is like following a trail. It moves forward, sidesteps, backtracks to cover it’s steps, and jumps forward again. There are some strong secondary characters that I’m sure will have larger roles in other books in this series. And there are some surprises and a huge secret that will be revealed. Looking for something to keep you up into the wee hours, reluctant to stop until you reach the end? This oughta do it!

I am not a family member and I really liked this book. I did not think it was boring. In fact it had me on he edge of my seat the whole time. It took me a long time to figure out who the killer was Dan the deputy.

Ok I read the other reviews, I just dont get it! This book was really dumb! In a matter of days an exFBI agent falls for a wattress/physic, solves a serial murder case that has been going on for over 12 years, finds out her brother is gay and her real father is her new fella's boss. Oh! And is kidnapped and almost murdered. I TOLD YA THIS BOOK DUMB! This author must have a very large family or she paid a bunch of people to write positive reviews.

This book is dedicated to the writer's mother. The plot is based on serial killers who rape their victims and kill them in grotesque ways. Lovely subject to dedicate to mom. I had a difficult time finishing this. Besides being gory the love story portions were unbelievable and repeated constantly. I skipped over several pages at a time to get through the book. I anticipated the ending, both the love story and the killer. Not worth the effort to read it. I will not read more in this series.

Would have given it five stars but I found some of the foul language off-putting
