A Beautiful Woman, Missing

New York City, 2005. Thanksgiving weekend. A topless Kate Moss peers down from a billboard over rain-spattered Houston Street. Escaping a troubled past, Francesca Pena came to the city and reinvented herself. At New York University, her beauty and charisma are the envy of her privileged pals, yet none knows the real Francesca—who, after a night of drinking, is now missing.

A High-Stakes Gamble

Detective Darlene O'Hara of the Seventh Precinct and her partner, Serge "K." Krekorian, set out to find Pena. But when the case turns high-profile and Homicide is called in, O'Hara—who has an eighteen-year-old son she saddled with the name Axl Rose O'Hara, and whose binge drinking exacerbates the massive chip on her shoulder—refuses to let go. Risking both her and K.'s careers, she defies NYPD brass and Homicide legend Patrick Lowry to secretly pursue her own investigation.

A Desperate Chase—and a Chilling Twist

Following a deadly trail that leads from NYU's ivory towers to Brooklyn tattoo parlors, from a skanky strip club to a whitewashed boutique run by a Korean madam, O'Hara closes in on her prey. But she has to move fast, because Lowry and the NYPD are about to make a devastating mistake that will leave the real killer free.

    James Patterson

    New York Times

  • “Tough, skillful, sophisticated entertainment. When the crime-fiction aficionados set out to pick their best first novel of the year, Shadows Still Remain will be a contender.” 

    Washington Post

  • “The first solo effort by James Patterson’s coauthor (Beach Road) delivers enough twists and turns for any thriller reader…Here’s hoping that we see O'Hara again.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Amy | 2/13/2014

    " I read this in one day, too. Really liked it! I wouldn't mind another book with Darlene O'Hara. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Annie Tarbox | 2/11/2014

    " Not bad, although the main character's struggle with alcohol seems extraneous and false--too stereotypical a character flaw for a strong female lead, with not much explanation for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Terry | 1/18/2014

    " NYU co-ed Francesca Pena disappears one Thanksgiving weekend. When her horribly mutilated corpse is found, NYPD homicide digs in. Detective Darlene O'Hara is this case's maverick investigator: of course she drinks too much and is smarter than all her superiors! Short chapters, snappy dialogue, red herrings, and more--blurbed by Lehane and Patterson. I'd definitely read this author again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kristyn | 1/15/2014

    " I wish I could give half stars. This would get three and a half. It kept me guessing and it was a quick read but I didn't find the main character very authentic. A little flat, but the story was pretty good. "
