The Shadows: A Novel

We rated this book:


This is a conflicting, enigmatic story about Paul Adams confronting the past he sought so hard to put away. The Shadows takes readers to the past, to the cause of Paul’s apprehension toward his hometown. It describes the journey from his house to the police station and the stop at the crime scene. He describes his feelings of fear and uncertainty as they near the police station. Despite Paul’s innocence, the police officers were convinced that he was responsible, until the evidence proved their theory wrong. Then, we jump to the present day where we are introduced to Detective Amanda Beck. She has a killing case that matched exactly what happened twenty-five years ago in Gritten, Paul’s hometown. The novel then takes off from there with many twists and turns as well as moments of tensions that leave the reader conflicted and thirsting for more.

One of the most dominating qualities that this book possesses that makes it such a joy to read is the in-depth detail of the characters. Alex North allowed the reader, through details, to empathize and understand Paul and Amanda. This closeness to the characters makes it almost impossible to put down.
