Book Blog Tour - The Shadow Man by Mark Murphy
Today, I'm hosting a book blog tour stop for author Mark Murphy's new book, The Shadow Man.
About The Book:
There is a devil in the night, silent and invisible, moving in the dream realm between life and death. And he's coming for you.
Savannah surgeon Malcolm King had a perfect life—a loving wife, devoted daughter, and a thriving medical practice. But when a random airport parking lot hit-and-run links him to a dead body in a Florida hotel and an acquaintance is found dismembered and stuffed into a garbage bag, Malcolm finds himself on the run as a suspected serial killer. But he's no murderer.
Or is he?
Who is the mysterious Thin Man who lurks at the edges of his vision? Are the ravens that crowd the skies overhead a warning of impending doom - or do they exist at all?
With the help of Seminole tracker Billy Littlebear, Malcolm tries to untangle the web of clues left behind by a mysterious chameleon-like killer known as the Shadow Man. But will he be too late?
The Shadow Man is a complex, atmospheric thriller in the tradition of Stephen King. Darkly evocative and relentless in its twists and turns, it dares the reader to put it down - even for a minute.

Normally, I'm more of a gentle, suspensful, cozy mystery type of gal. But every once in a while there comes along a book that kind of jolts me out of my usual reading zone. Mark Murphy's "The Shadow Man" was one of those books.
Setting his story in the sultry South, where mystery and intrigue lurk through the Spanish moss and the eerie swamps, Murphy delivers a spine-tingling suspensful tale that will have readers on the edges of their seats until the very final sentence. Murphy captures the essense of the psychological mystery thriller in his debut book, providing plenty of twists, turns, and unexpected revelations that keep the storyline moving along at a rapid clip.
I highly recommend this novel to readers who enjoy a good mystery that makes you think!
