Publisher's Summary

The only woman Patrick Bannister ever loved has died...again.

Struggling professionally and reeling from the psychological wounds left by a horribly abusive mother, Patrick is driven over the edge by a news report. A wealthy socialite couple has been murdered, and while the wife’s name isn’t familiar, her face certainly is. It’s his first and only love, Marybeth, the woman who he lost to a horrific fire years ago.

Is he losing his mind?

Patrick’s obsession to find the truth sends him scouring records and documents that lead him to a shocking discovery: There’s no evidence Marybeth ever lived or, for that matter, ever died. Was the love of Patrick’s life just a product of his abused psyche?

The truth may kill him.

His quest for answers takes him on a twisted mental odyssey that forces him to question his own reality. He might not be able to trust his memories and perceptions of the past, but the answers may still lie in the darkest recesses of his mind.

But Patrick will soon find out that by stoking the flames from that long ago fire, he’s blazing a path straight into danger. And this time, not only is he about to get burned - he could also end up losing his life.

    "Nails on a chalkboard!"
    What disappointed you about Darkness & Shadows?

    The lead character was so helpless, needy and whiny that after 6 hours I simply couldn't take it anymore. I just wanted to b**th slap him and say, "Grow some already!"


    What was most disappointing about Andrew E. Kaufman’s story?

    The main character's reactions became painfully predictable.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not in the six hours that I labored through it.

    "Excellent!"

    Darkness and Shadows continues the story of Patrick Bannister, who was first introduced in The Lion, The Lamb and The Hunted, and immediately I was drawn back into Patrick’s world and into an absorbing and gripping suspense thriller.
    Patrick is still suffering from his abusive past and the loss of his first love and, after seeing a news report of a missing couple, is thrown into a state of confusion and torment. Nothing is as it seems and as Patrick finds out more and more his life is turned upside down and he has to find out the truth whatever it takes. There are some really good plot twists along the way
    The conversations between Patrick and his therapist are heartrending and superbly written and I love the interaction between Patrick and Tristan, she's a great character and under the rough and hostile exterior lies a heart of gold.
    There is so much emotion throughout the story and Luke Daniels’ narration captures it perfectly, adding impact and feeling.
