A Look Back at IN THE SHADOW OF EVIL

Nancy C. Weeks, friend and romantic suspense novelist extraordinaire, is releasing the conclusion in her Shadow series on Monday November 22nd. That book, In the Shadow of Vengeance will be highlighted right here on that date. In the meantime, we take a look back at the books that came before…

MY REVIEW OF In the Shadow of Evil

ABOUT THE BOOK

I'm a link - click me!
ElĂ­as Mendoza’s personal vendetta against the McKenzie family rests on Jennie’s shoulders. As she cradles the bullet-ridden body of her ten-year old student, she knows Mendoza is responsible. Quinton’s death is a message. Jennie’s life belongs to only Mendoza. But she has her own message. No one else dies. Her life means nothing as long as Mendoza is free.

Jared McNeil has spent ten years with Maryland’s Special Crime Unit and very little rattles him. When the haunted teenager he once tried to protect walks into his precinct now a beautiful woman, he wants nothing more than to wrap her in his arms and never let her go. But he soon realizes she is there only to settle her debts before she goes after his nemesis, Mendoza. Jared’s vow to stay away from Jennie until the task force destroys Mendoza now means nothing.

What Jared and Jennie don't understand is there are forces at play greater than the evil shadowing them, but time is running out. United, they can do anything. Alone, they will fail.

MY THOUGHTS

This is the second book by Nancy Weeks that I’ve read and while I wouldn’t call it a sequel to In the Shadow of Greed it is certainly the second in a series involving the many McNeil brothers. Nancy has a particular talent in creating complicated relationships. Men and women that belong together – soul mates – that due to situations, emotions, conflict, can’t be together or lives will be endangered and yet they cannot stay away from one another. It makes for compelling reading. The kind that is difficult to put down.

FYI ~ You will love hating Mendoza.


Now I'm not saying Nancy's hero is a dud. Nuh-uh. Jared is yummy. And Jennie is spunky. Qualities I prefer in my romantic couplings. And Nancy's secondary characters are so richly drawn they almost outshine Jared, Jennie and Mendoza. Week’s imagination is a very full, colorful world and Evil is a thrilling glimpse inside. ;)

Come back tomorrow for my review of In the Shadow of Malice.
