Evil in the Shadows
About the Book
‘Evil in the Shadows’ is a thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seats. The suspenseful nature and psychologically-intriguing story line will make it a difficult book to put down. The novel has exciting, mystifying, as well as very creepy elements - combining a thriller, horror and crime story all together. This masterfully-worded work of fiction cleverly intermingles and intertwines all of these complicated elements. It is the story of Scott Robert Falcon Parker, who is a thoroughly-evil protagonist. He was born that way and only becomes worse as we witness, first-hand, his notorious life and hideous deeds. It is about the good and evil in the world. It shows so many underlying things just below the surface of people that one never sees or even thinks can be imagined. The protagonist’s actions will certainly shock and perhaps, at times, even make the reader’s jaw drop. A thriller such as this has not been written in a long time. It is overdue. Hints and glimpses of black art, voodoo, demonology, gothic mystique, creepy horror and young, teenage girls’ worst nightmares are all captured in this unforgettable, haunting novel.
