Louie Thorne was born with a dangerous gift and a reason to fear the darkness. But when her parents are murdered by the mafia, embracing her power is the only way to exact her revenge. She will destroy the men who destroyed her family—no matter the cost.

Robert King may be a retired agent, but he knows trouble when he sees it. First, his old partner returns with a case. Then an old flame begs a favor. By the time Louie enters the picture, King will be lucky to survive the night.

A supernatural crime thriller perfect for fans of Dean Koontz.

  1. Also, now that I've mentioned the connections to Constantine, you might be tempted to think the character Chaz is named after Chaz from the graphic novels/movie. But nope! This Chaz is named after a character from Midnight Blue: a Sonja Blue Collection by Nancy A. Collins.

  2. Yes! I've read Lisey's Story. Loved Shadows on the Water!

  3. You now have me wanting to reread Lisey's Story. Love this new series. Love Louie and can't wait for more

  4. Oh good! I seriously was starting to believe I was the only one who'd read it!

  5. I knew there was a familiar feeling in the book! It has dark undertones like Douma key as well. I get SO excited when people reference S. King.

    1. I really enjoyed Duma Key! Another one where my opinion seemed to differ...

  6. Sounds interesting! I like crime thrillers.

  7. Thanks Kory, Great video! Nice to meet you. Shadows on the Water sounds like a great read. Thank you

  8. I haven't read any of them. Yet! Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Haven't read any, but am now very interested in doing so!

  10. No, I haven't read them, but I really want to read this one!

  11. I haven't read any of the books that Kory mentioned. I did pick up Stephen King's Lisey's Story at a little free library so it's on my TBR list. I haven't read much King, but Iike Kory I've also found that people who are King fans don't seem to know the book.

    In the rafflecopter, I think I put Twitter in as the first follow option before seeing the Twitter option. I'll also follow on GFC.
