Review: Shadow Stalker by Barbara Derksen

Shadow Stalker (Finder Keepers Mystery Series)
Back Cover Blurb:
An ominous shadow hangs over her, as Christine Finder, alias Melissa Rompart, visits the brutal slaying of her parents most nights in a dream. The threat of discovery propels her to search for the whereabouts of the killer to see the man brought to justice. In the meantime, the killer stalks her mind while she operates Finder’s Keepers, an agency that searches for the people her clients hire her to find. Nathan Brent is only four years old and missing. Will she find him in time or will the killer find her first?

My Thoughts:
Always, a beginning like Barbara's Shadow Stalker (love the title) is what draws a reader of suspense into the book. What a horrid nightmare, which the protagonist suffers through her adulthood, for a child. Yet, it happens in real life, and Barbara pulls the reader into her story because she employs such a method.

Starting her own detective agency, Melissa/Christine battles to find a four-year-old child while dealing with her own problems/nightmare. Has the murderer of her parents found her? Will he ever give up? And can she and Jeremy Goodman, who wants to protect her, work together and perhaps find a spark of love?

Fast paced, intense, and a book well-worth your time and money. You'll be pulled into the story from the beginning and have a hard time putting it down. Intriguing plot!

You'll enjoy the book if you love suspense!
