In the opening chapter of Shade, a woman dies in the house where she grew up, killed by her childhood friend. The clumsy murderer manages to eliminate her body; however, her spirit returns to narrate this riveting novel of love and war, childhood alliances, and inevitable betrayals. Nina Hardy's ghost is vigilant, patient, and forgiving. As she haunts her home, and her childhood self, on the bank of the river Boyne, she chronicles the lives of two pairs of siblings with astonishing insight and perception.

Set in Ireland between the 1900s and 1950s, Shade follows friends through peace and war, with each unforgettable character inexorably moving towards their role in the brutal murder that begins the novel, a tragedy that comes to have shattering significance before the last page.

    " Using the ghost of the main character was an interesting technique and, as bizaare as it sounds, actually worked well. I was engrossed from the start. The characters and their relationships are interesting and the impact of passion, obsession and betrayal upon them ultimately reveals all. I became an obsessive reader! "

    " I don't get all the hype for this book. I didn't actually enjoy reading it until page 180.... "

    " In Ireland, just because you're dead doesn't mean you don't get a say. Lovely. "

    " it was a good book,a little hard to follow in parts,it was sad but Jordan paints a picture of childhood innocence and describes the era and the location so well you feel like youre there.Its my first novel by Jordan so i think i would probably read some more of his work. "
