Summary

Who is Duncan Reynolds? Pierce, the man claiming to be my husband says that's me.

A racing heart and a need to breathe are my only memories when I wake in an unfamiliar room surrounded by strangers. With nothing else to go on, I have to trust the people around me to help me remember. 

As days stretch into weeks, I know the reoccurring dreams of dark alleys and sinister shadows can't be ignored, and the only person I have to help me is Pierce. With my memory slowly starting to return, I know things aren't always as they seem. Will searching for the past lead me closer to my husband or toward the danger that's lurking just out of sight?

Nail biting suspense

Duncan cannot remember his name or anything. Pierce says he is his husband, but something feels off. Instead of loving feelings when Pierce is near Duncan has an odd feeling. The longer it takes for Duncan to remember Pierce the more impatient he gets and who is Pierce anyways? His stories to Duncan just don’t add up then small memories start to surface, and they are not the same as Pierce says. OMG is this book good. There are so many twists and at times I began to wonder if perhaps it was Duncan with the problems, then more twist and as the story unfolded, I began to fear for Duncan myself. Al I can say about the ending is wow oh wow! Maxx Power is new to me narrator and at first, I wasn’t sure how I felt but as the story picked up, I quite enjoyed it. The book would be a good read, but I think the audio really brings it to life and amps up the suspense factor. If you like chilling phycological thrillers, nail-biting suspense, twists, and a good page-turning read… You never go wrong with Brittany Cournoyer and Sinister Shadows is amazing.

Decent mystery

This was a decent story that ran a little slow at times. I kept waiting for something to happen. Seemed to take forever for the action. Despite a few plot holes I’d recommend it. Narrator was pretty good.

Alone with No Memory

Sinister Shadows is a suspenseful tale of trusting your instincts versus what your eyes see and others say. Waking from an accident with severe injuries and no memory, Duncan is forced to rely on the husband he no longer remembers. Pierce is distraught that his husband doesn't remember him. He makes it his mission to jog Duncan's memory of their life together. So, why does Duncan feel uneasy in the home he shares with Pierce? I feel that the ending was a little rushed. I would have liked the suspense of the reveal to have stretched out longer with more details. Regardless, it's a really good story. Narrator Maxx Power does a good job of creepy, eerie, and cluelessness. This book is definitely going on my To Be Listened to Again list.
