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.
