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.
Shan gives us a tale of multiple deceptions, of human beings haunted by the ghosts of their past and stalked by the consequences of their actions in the present. Absolutely gripping from first page to last
