I found this book to be very addictive. I read half of it the first night I purchased it and finished it the second night. Some of the turn of events in this book I never would have suspected. I believe this would make a very entertaining movie and look forward to more from this author.

This is one of the BEST books I have ever read. A tight well written suspense novel that keeps the pages turning and is hard to put down all the way to the end. And that's where it blows your mind!!! This book IS a must read!

I honestly couldn't stop reading it. One of the better ebooks i've read since i first got my nook. Loved the story line and especially how the author keeps you hanging at the end! Certainly not bad for a free book! :D

Great read for those that love thrillers & psychopaths. The characters are interesting and believable. Many twists that will make you wonder what it going to happen next. You will never guess the ending. I am truly looking forward to another book from this author.

I give this book 5 stars only because it's as high as I can go! I have checked my closet every night since i started reading this book. The Shepherd has blown away my previous favorite book and I can't wait for the next book! Congrats on writing an amazing book!!!

I was impressed that this book was Mr. Cross' first book. I read reviews from others and was really impressed with this book. It was hard to put down. Characters were believable and real. Just when I thought I had figured it out I would turn the page and it wasn't as it seemed. The book is fast paced, and left me up late reading. Enjoyable. I am amazed a large publisher hasn't picked up this author. This is a well written book I would highly recommend for the beach, a rainy day,or simply your next book. I look forward to the next book produced by this author a true story teller!

The Shepherd did not leave me disturbed, as I have read in some other reviews, although I had been concerned that it would. That said, however, this book will scare you more than once - I promise. Do yourself a favor and don't read too many reviews - though no real spoilers, some reveal enough to alter the ultimate experience with this page-turner! It's a great book that gives you a lot to think about yet has a smooth, seamless storyline. Extremely well done! Don't miss this book! You will be anxiously awaiting the sequel with the rest of us!

HOLY COW!!! Where do I begin? Let me just say that my heart is still pounding after finishing this book a little while ago. I am completely hooked! This is an intense thriller that starts from page 1 and does not let up through the entire book. Cross has created the ultimate bad guy with Ackerman. The male counterpart to Chelsea Cain's Gretchen Lowell. If you enjoy intense thrillers, this is totally one of the best I have EVER read in this genre. The subject matter is a little intense, so I would not recommend this to a young reader; however, I will say that this author does not litter this book with unnecessary vulgar language. With the subject matter, I am not sure why vulgarity would matter, but it does to some people, so I am just letting you know. Cross has written a masterpiece of terror here that will take me a while to recover. This book started out abruptly, but you can remedy that by picking up "The Cage," which is a novella that takes place immediately prior to where this story starts. I liked starting there, because it gave me a little background on the monster known as Ackerman! I see that there are two more stories already written in the series, so I am off to pick up the next now. I think I will take a night off though to catch up on my sleep, because if the next two books are anything like this one, I doubt there will be much sleeping! To Ethan Cross: Thanx sooo much for taking me on this roller coaster of a ride! Cannot wait to see what is in store next for Marcus and Ackerman. -- SPeeD

I live to read and I get really excited when I come across a new author who can capture and hold my attention through the whole book. The Shepherd is a fast-paced book with lots of twists and turns; each time I thought I had figured something out it changed. I also love when an author can tell a very good story and not use profanity (I believe I counted 3 or 4). As I read the story, I found myself pondering about some of the moral delimna's the protaganist faced, I wondered what decisions I might make if placed in the same situations. I highly recommend this book and look foward to reading future stories by Ethan Cross!

I had never heard of this author, but I was pleasantly surprised with his novel. He created a thrilling plot that made it impossible to put down. I am looking forward to reading more of his work.

This is the first Ethan Cross novel I have read but it won't be the last. I just finished 'The Shepherd' and will be purchasing more of his books. A thrill ride from page one. One of the few books you cannot figure out until the very end... and then Mr. Cross throws you for another curve. Great book!

I haven't read five books in the 24 years I have been out of high school but loved this book!

AMAZING BOOK!!! :P Everyone who has ever had any doubts about the rightness of vigilante justice, NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK!! There is a VAST difference between taking a life because you NEED to, in order to save other lives, and what most people judge vigilante actions as being which is pointless murder. READ this book; I don't think anyone on either end of the spectrum will ever view things the same again. And even other than that element, this is a phenomenal story-line, great action, nonstop suspense, definitely a good and entertaining read.

I really liked this story.. I found that it was a lot like Prison Break season 4 because of the government conspiracy and the twist and turns in the plot but just like I loved that show, I really enjoyed this book. And also like the show I was never expecting the ending, which makes for a great read!

This is a book that has it all, good versus evil; love, hate, and action that never stops! Hooked me on page one and just kept getting better! I'm waiting for the sequel, will purchase it as soon as it is written and published.

In The Shepherd, Ethan Cross introduces us to Marcus Williams and Francis Ackerman Jr, thus setting the leading characters and premises for the Shepherd Thriller series. Both men have killed. While Marcus is filled with remorse for the death he caused, Francis takes pleasure from the serial killings. Both men wonder if there is redemption and question their destiny. They each see themselves as monsters. They both want to be loved. This story is very well written. As Marcus' and Francis' characters are developed, we glimpse into their souls and see their torment. Are these characters all that much different or just two sides of one coin destined to play the game until one succumbs? I had not anticipated the twist at the end. I hope you are as surprised as I. I recommend this book for all who enjoy thrillers and conspiracies mixed in with philosophical questions of good vs. evil.
