Previously published as Shadow Man.
There is something terribly wrong in Sanctuary City, and Maggie is the only one willing to uncover the truth—no matter how high the price.
When Maggie Bychowski starts her job as a police officer in Sanctuary City, the small northern California town seems as bucolic as its name. Too soon, she discovers the thin blue line is as crooked as a drunk walking heel to toe. When Maggie tries to shed light on what’s really going on under the surface in the town, the powers that be mobilize to protect their own.
But when Shadowman, an online fantasy character, starts luring local girls into doing his deadly bidding, concerns about shady dealings in the town take a back seat to a powerful evil that threatens to destroy everyone in its path.
Maggie has an impossible choice: risk it all or lose it all.
