I open my eyes. The room is dark, and I can see no windows, only stairs leading up to a metal trapdoor. From the shadows, a figure emerges. A little girl with long, pale hair. She smiles at me. “Are you my new mommy?” she says.

A young woman is missing. And Rylan Flynn was the last person to see her alive.

Nobody has heard from Bess Freeman since Rylan saw her leaving a bar and walking into the night with a stranger. Normally quiet and shy, Bess would never skip out on her family and friends like this. The small town of Ashby is in shock. 

While the police struggle to find leads, it’s immediately clear to Rylan that this is no ordinary abduction. Her ability to see ghosts reveals sinister clues on all sides. 

In the basement of an abandoned church, Rylan finds the spirit of another young woman who may be a victim. And when the police uncover human remains beneath a barn, a male figure watches them closely, then disappears. 

Ashby’s handsome head detective, Ford Pierce, is as reluctant as ever to involve Rylan in the case. 

But when another woman’s body is discovered hidden in a derelict family home, it’s clear that Bess is in mortal danger. And her time is running out.

For years, a killer has been lurking in Ashby, driven by a darkness that is more than human. 

Desperate to find Bess before another innocent life is lost, Rylan must work with Ford to unravel a dangerous web of lies. But is she drawing closer to the truth or walking into the killer’s trap?

A gripping paranormal thriller packed with dark secrets, danger, and slow-burning romance that will keep you listening late into the night. Fans of Wendy Wang, Heather Graham, and Dean Koontz will love The Shadow Girls.
