Publisher's Summary

As Agents Heath and Eames uncover the truth, a decades-old scandal comes to light. Even now, some are willing to kill to keep their secrets hidden.

Eleri wanted a different kind of case. She should have been careful what she wished for. 

When an odd human skeleton in Michigan’s Manistee-Huron National Forest triggers a NightShade investigation, Eleri and Donovan arrive to find it missing. But two other skeletons are a little too easily uncovered - each displays different anomalies that raise alarming questions. 

The bones aren’t from the area or probably even the continent. A decades-old abandoned building doesn’t register on satellite images. Files detailing genetic experiments on children are even more disturbing, and most of the children are unaccounted for. 

Who were the test subjects and where are the bodies? Eleri and Donovan believe there are others out there who haven’t died yet. But they will, if something isn’t done. Fast. 

If the case itself wasn’t enough of a problem, someone is watching. Someone with a particular interest in Donovan’s own skeletal anomalies....

Good Case & Narration

Eleri wanted a different type of case, to sink her teeth in to solve. With Donovan they got the odd.anomalies shape remains they are not of that region. Another Nightshade Mystery excellent plot and characters. Given audio which was good and enjoyed, for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Hooked link and sinker

I have read a few of AJ Scudieres books, however only just found this series. Love these characters! Just love them. They are like mates I feel like we know them. Loving the story lines created with the previous story and this one. Glad there is an element of continuation from book to book but love that they find themselves in a whole new situation. Great story, good characters, easy to listen to narration. Highly recommended.

Experiment in Terror

Another brilliant action packed entry in the Nightshade series featuring our heroes, new friendships, dispicable villains and even some light romance. Eleri and Donovan along with Walter are in fine form as they hunt for the truth about horrendous experiments carried out on children years ago. As they search for answers among all the secrets and lies we also gain more insight into Donovan and how he may have come by his abilities. I thoroughly recommend this thriller for fans of P. W Child et al and look forward to listening to the rest of the series. I received this audiobook at my request and am voluntarily leaving this unbiased review.
