Publisher's Summary

Pull a trigger and everything changes. Medical student Laura Nelson had just finished examining her first patient when she is forced to make a split-second decision that will alter the course of her life - forever. One life will end, and one life will never be the same. But keeping her dreadful secret will be one of the toughest challenges Laura will ever face. With a persistent and perceptive detective hot on her trail and a host of eerie incidents suggesting that maybe her secret isn't really a secret, Laura is drawn into an unseemly web of peril, deceit, and treachery and is forced to risk both her freedom and her sanity. Will her deadly secret come to light, or must she live forever in the shadow of death?

Set amidst the upheaval and smoldering chaos of the Detroit riots of 1967, Shadow of Death is a haunting tale of unrest, fear, and consequences. Hailed as a stunning debut novel, Shadow of Death provides a spine-chilling glimpse of what lurks in the shadows.

    "The absolute worst narration I have ever heard"
    Would you try another book from Patricia Gussin and/or Linda Velwest?

    If Linda Velwest is the narrator, there is no chance I would try another book. She made every one sound like they had a speech impediment, an IQ of 2 or the teacher on South Park.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Linda Velwest?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shadow of Death?

    David's death

    Any additional comments?

    I can't really say anything about the book as the narration was too horrible to really be able to get into the story.
