    Kayleigh Towne is gorgeous with a voice that is taking her to the heights of the country pop charts. Her hit single "Your Shadow" puts her happily in the spotlight, until an innocent exchange with one of her fans leads Kayleigh into a dark and terrifying realm. The fan warns, "I'm coming for you," and soon accidents happen and people close to Kayleigh die. Special Agent Kathryn Dance must use her considerable skills at investigation and body language analysis to stop the stalker.

    Story

    Deaver has joined the ranks of authors who have decided to use their art to further a political agenda. Predicably, the heroine and main characters are oh so compassionate and humane, and the ultimate preditor a caricature of a right wing (I like to call them Conservatives but that just doesn't sound crazy enough) zealot. The problem with this political formula is that it turns off millions of readers who are Conservative but not at all like the caricature in the book. Even worse than this insult to the intelligence of the readers, it makes for a boring and irritating book. It also flies in the face of reality, where the vast majority of politically motivated crimes are committed by the left wingnuts, not Conservatives. Oh Jeffery, I will miss you or at least the you you used to be when you wrote intellilgent, suspenseful and apolitical novels. Now, I have my own personal moral stance that I insist on taking against all media who decide to politicize their art to further liberal group think, I just say no.
