Get ready for the most exciting, fast-paced book you have read. The author has given readers everything they could want in one book- greed, crime, murder, love, hate, and cartels. Her ability to use vivid descriptions make readers feel as if they are right in the action. Once you start reading this book, I guarantee you won’t be able to put it down!

Many of the characters come from dysfunctional homes and lived in poverty. This led them to learn to be controlling and power-full, taking no prisoners.

Ricco Salazar is a man you will love or hate. No one would get in his way of getting what he wanted. He would kill you on the spot regardless of who you were. His eyes could cut through you and revenge was his game. His enterprise was selling and producing illegal drugs.

Madeline Nesbitt is a young girl who has very vivid dreams about danger happening around her. Her parents didn’t know how to handle this gift and encouraged her to forget it. The most important thing to them was for her to help them make a living. Disaster struck the family when she was sixteen-years-old and now she had to survive on her own. How did she get to be in the hands of Ricco and his slimy buddies?

AJ Hartman started a business with his wife that he really didn’t want. The company was to produce pacemakers. Illegal activity and greed had him selling defective products and he didn’t care. He was the boss – you did what he wanted, when he wanted; you could vanish in five minutes.

This was a great book- one can get caught up in the drama and killings. Some will cringe at the grisly scenes, but it happens and we choose to ignore it. The author has had a lot of experience and you can tell that she knew exactly what she was writing about in “Shadow Cay.”
