Description

With the darkness of John Connolly and the quirkiness of Neil Gaiman, LADY OF THE SHADES is a dark supernatural thriller for adults from the No.1 bestselling author, Darren Shan.

In a hotel room in Chile, an assassin washes blood from his clothes as he receives word of a new job. Miles away in the twisting streets of London, American writer Ed is tormented by the ghosts of his brutal past. And unseen, a plot churns into motion that will blur the boundaries between what's real and what's not.

Ensnared in an affair with the beautiful wife of a dangerous crime lord, Ed fights to keep a deadly secret hidden. But with each turn, his past is catching up with him.

Because in the shadows, nothing is as it seems...
