Where Shadows Burn

Award-winning author Catherine Hunter serves up a haunting thriller that will keep you enthralled.
Description

Kelly Quirk's life is coming unravelled...again. Kelly, a young costume designer, was devastated by the suicide of her husband James, a gifted artist, and she is still haunted by his memory. But lately, she's haunted by something more than memory. Disturbing and strange phone calls, the disappearance of her husband's favourite shirt and drawings, fleeting shadows and shapes all chill Kelly to the bone.

When a more earthly danger threatens her beloved nephew, Alex, Kelly is galvanized into action, fleeing with the boy to Minneapolis. Posing as Alex's mother, Kelly takes a job designing costumes on a production of Hamlet. But as she tries to settle into her new life as a fugitive, the lead actor in the production takes more than a passing interest in her, threatening her anonymity.

On the eve of opening night, a series of deadly events begins to unfold, and the past finally catches up with Kelly. She's forced to face her own role in a web of secrets that has entrapped her family -- and now threatens to consume her and everything she cares for.

Reviews

It is an up-all-night page-turning tale of a production of Hamlet and a searing simultaneous exploration of the impact of childhood abuse.It has everything a good thriller should offer.

Marnie Woodrow, Write Magazine

The novel features vivid imagery, creative writing and people with whom the reader is quick to feel a connection.

Bremlee Carrington, Winnipeg Free Press

[Where Shadows Burn] is a great mystery, with the reader never suspecting "who" of the many suspects actually "dunnit" until the secret is finally revealed.

Wendy Sawatzky, Perimeter

Not only does she develop her story in a gripping well-paced blend of character detail and sense of place, she stuns the reader constantly with unexpected surpises and twists that left this reader sitting up half the night with palpitations and a reluctance to turn out the lights.

M.E.W, pneumatic.com/Spicehouse

Witness the confused, beautiful, intelligent and caring female protagonist, the tragic past of the aforementioned, and the dark, handsome, sought-after male character who (you guessed it) is smitten with the protagonist.

Joanne O'Leary, Zygote Winter

A terrifying adventure filled with carefully crafted characters and entertainingly elaborate enigmas.
