Shadows Still Remain: A Novel by Peter de Jonge

“A killer of a thriller with a wonderfully human, perfectly rendered heroine at its center….A terrific read.”
—Dennis Lehane, author of Shutter Island and The Given Day

 

“First-rate crime fiction.”

Washington Post (a Best Book of the Year)

 

The raves keep pouring in for #1 New York Times bestselling author Peter De Jong’s Shadows Still Remain. James Patterson calls it, “An absolute knockout and a half,” and praises De Jong’s fascinating, endearing, but seriously flawed heroine, NYPD Detective Darlene O’Hara, as, “One of the freshest, hippest detective creations in many a year.” Every fan of serious crime fiction will agree that this author is a major find.

I like De Jonge's writing better than Patterson's or any of their collaborations. This novel was interesting, well-paced, and thoughtfully written. I hope he develops the character of OHara. I would like to see more of her in future novels. He does a good job of writing about a female character. Not too many authors can do that well. I like that he converts NYC into another character. The sense of place, and the contrast between the homes of the rich with the seedy bars and slums is very well featured. It reminds me of the novels of Dennis Lehane and Gabriel Cohen, where the location is as pertinent as the character and the plot. Good job, and I hope we will see more of his writing in the near future.

Pick up the bargain book Shadows Still Remain by Peter De Jonge; you won't be sorry. This who done it is tautly woven with well worked out surprises up to the end. The plot is cleverly constructed. It's a page turner that keeps you wanting to know who and why. The ending is shocking. Very well written. I enjoyed the female protagonist. I'll look forward to more DeJonge novels written alone. Well worth the $3.99 bargain.

If the name Peter de Jonge sounds familiar to a reader, it's because it has appeared next to the mega best-selling author James Patterson's name, and credited as co-author of several best-sellers such as "Miracle on the 17th Green", "Beach Road" and "The Beach House". "Shadows Still Remain" is his first novel written without collaboration with Mr. James Patterson. It is an impressive debut. After a night of heavy drinking, when Francesca Pena, a beautiful teenaged NYU student disappears, the case is assigned to Detective Darlene O'Hara. However, when Francesca's battered body is found in East River Park, the missing person case is suddenly transformed into a case of homicide, and the case is taken off Detective O'Hara's hands. Unwilling to let go of the case, O'Hara, a single mother and tenacious, continues her investigation privately and uncovers a hidden facet of Francesca's dark, secret life at an escort service and a strip club also. The setting of the novel - the Lower East Side of New York, with is narrow, shadowy streets, tiny bars, tattoo parlors, boutiques, and small parks, create a bewitching and interesting back ground. The story is fast paced. And full of unexpected twists and turns, the plot becomes more complex. With the second book featuring Detective O'Hara now in progress, Peter de Jonge has created a bright new crime fiction series. I found the book well-plotted, well-written, fast-paced, gripping and highly readable.

Shadows Still Remain, by Peter De Jonge is a fast paced story about a female detective, Darlene O'Hara who is trying to make it into the Homicide Division. She catches a case involving a missing NYU student, and quickly learns that the girl is not really missing, but dead. As O'Hara and her partner follow the clues, they also bump heads with the lead investigator on the case, Lowry. Because of their dislike for each other, O'Hara keeps information from Lowry and gets herself into all kinds of messy situations. All the while, an interesting and shocking case unfolds before O'Hara and she finds herself examining parts of her own past. This book was fast paced and easy to read, for the most part. It was written in the present tense which made it a little less enjoyable for me. I found myself re-reading several sentences because the tense didn't seem to fit the flow of the story. The character development was done really well for most of the characters, and the conclusion of the case is surprising. However, the ending of the story left a bit to be desired. After solving the murder case, O'Hara found herself obsessed with who the victim was before she was killed, but never learns the answers she wanted. Even though the lesson was that she won't always get all of the answers, I still felt like I was left hanging...just a little. On a scale of 1-4, I give this book a 3. I liked the main characters, the storyline, and the pace. I would have preferred it to have been written in past tense, and I would have liked to have learned the answers to the questions O'Hara was trying to find. This book was published by HarperCollins.
