Mark Edwards

In Her Shadow

"...Edwards is no ordinary writer. He’s in an elite class of his own."


Isabel's life seemed perfect. Successful business, beautiful house, adoring husband. And then she was dead.

For four years Jessica has never doubted that her sister Isabel's death was an accident. But when Jessica's young daughter seems to know long-forgotten details about her aunt's past, Jessica can't shake the feeling that there's a more sinister truth behind the tragedy.

As Jessica unearths disturbing revelations about her sister, and about the people she loved and trusted most, it becomes clear Isabel's life was less than perfect and that Jessica's might also be at risk.

Did someone murder Isabel? Are they now after Jessica and her family? The key seems to lie in the hands of a child. Can Isabel reveal the truth from beyond the grave, or is the answer closer to home?

It is not difficult to see why Mark Edwards has sold more than two million books. He's an unpredictable master storyteller. Just when you think you have a handle on the plot, he slaps you with a twist to keep you turning the pages. Edwards is also a writer with his finger on the pulse and this novel is timely written given the current #MeToo campaign to highlight sexual exploitation. Not many authors can seamlessly weave a topical and sensitive subject with a tense and riveting thriller, but, as I've said, Edwards is no ordinary writer. He's in an elite class of his own. 'In Her Shadow' is a dark psychological chiller with hints of the supernatural and some genuinely creepy moments. It'll be a while before I look a stuffed toy in the eyes again. What I enjoy most about Mark's novels is how each one is completely different. All you know when you pick up one of his books is that your life will be on hold until you've finished it. I read this in two sittings, and that's only because I had to stop for work. More like this and it won't be long before Mark's sales hit three million.
