For ex-cop Jack Whalen, it all begins with a visit from a childhood friend, a lawyer who needs Jack's help. The family of a noted scientist has been senselessly, brutally murdered, and the scientist is nowhere to be found. But Jack has more pressing concerns. The past that drove him from the L.A.P.D. continues to haunt him. And his wife has disappeared during a routine business trip to Seattle. She never checked into her hotel. She isn't answering her cell phone. She is gone. A third missing person, a little girl in Oregon, is found miles away. But it soon becomes obvious that she is not an innocent victim and far from defenseless.

Something very strange is happening, a perplexing series of troubling events that's leading Jack Whalen into the shadows. And the secrets buried there are unlike anything anyone could possibly have imagined. Download and start listening now!

    " Decided this was not worth finishing. If it was meant to be supernatural/occult, there wasn't enough of that. If NOT, there was too much of that. I could not buy the entire subplot involving the child Mackenzie. At a certain point, I found that I just didn't care and there were too many good books in the world to waste time on this one. "

    " This book is teaming with ideas. Like a few recent thrillers, it doesn't try too hard to give you all the answers or explain away things that aren't really important to the story. It is what it is, it happens, deal with it. You only ever know what the lead character knows helping add to the tension as the character crashes wildly from one discovery to the next, in a permemnt state of confusion.There are a few flaws - some things that we really should have had explained are missing - and if i was the lead character i don't think i'd be satisfied with the answers i had. However the writing is fast and tight and the action scenes detailed and pacey.This is a well written book, and an intelligent book. All too often the answers are spelled out across the page - this book though uses its secrecy to its advantage. A little more polish towards the end and this would have been excellent. "

    " Creepy and suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joleary | 2/3/2014

    " Preferred this to the Straw men trilogy "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa O'Leary Saunders | 1/28/2014

    " This was one of my favorite books in a long while. I just really like how this guy writes. I thought the story was interesting and couldn't put the book down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 1/19/2014

    " Slow to start but picked up pace at the end really enjoyed the story line and the slight twist at the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mikolaj Habryn | 1/19/2014

    " This should have been better, but it just didn't draw me in. It had the characteristic MMS wit, leaving me giggling helplessly many times in the first half of the book, but for some reason I kept finding other things to do. It's a long way ahead of the two other books that I have partly read right now, but that really isn't saying a lot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thasc | 1/19/2014

    " Not bad but I thought this story couldn't make it's mind up whether it was a whodunnit or sci fi based a bit all over the place at times "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 12/16/2013

    " A great blend of the supernatural and thriller. He makes you think all things are plausible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan Baxter | 12/9/2013

    " An excellent thriller, with a very creepy undertone and some brilliant characters. I was impressed with the way Marshall constructed the novel in first and third person. Highly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gregory | 11/3/2013

    " I learned a lot about Seattle while reading this supernatural thriller. While sometimes scary and intense the ending lacked punch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 10/25/2013

    " A very interesting premise about life and how we live it, with a pretty good mystery/thriller element involved as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 10/15/2013

    " Very good. Just took me to long to read because of letting life get in the way. I would of probably enjoyed it more if I read it faster. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 6/13/2013

    " Bit slow to get started but good in the end. Set in Seattleish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 9/11/2012

    " I enjoy Marshall's books but this wasn't his best. It is a compelling mystery that will leave you turning the pages to the final denouement which is unexpected to say the least. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clara | 7/21/2011

    " Pretty scary book. I picked this up in a bookstore when I didn't have anything to read. Psychological thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 9/30/2010

    " A slow burn, but a really good read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisabeth | 3/4/2010

    " this reminds me of the OLD stephen king books -- scary and good!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Skattie | 1/30/2010

    " I enjoyed the reading of this novel, but it sort of unravelled (to me unexpectedly) as a Science fiction or Horror story, take your pick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Will Humphreys | 12/20/2009

    " Has some wonderful lines and good writing on places, moods and relationships. Good action sequences and some chills but I just didn't get the plot on this one. The 'Straw Men' Trilogy was better for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 12/16/2009

    " I think I would have liked this book a lot more if I had gotten an explanation of what was going on earlier than 3/4 of the way through the book. Interesting concept for the book (I won't give anything away), but I would have liked a little more upfront exposition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Prushinski | 9/18/2009

    " Michael Marshall never fails to deliver a book that you really have to think about and wonder, "Hmmmmm, could this really be happening? Yes? No, too strange. But maybe." Along the same lines as The Straw Men trilogy but not quite as psychological. Very good read,...may keep you up at night! "
