About this title

Synopsis:

After years of paying her dues on the force, Beth Sturgis has earned her place as a detective for the Robbery-Homicide division of the Atlanta PD. Now, she's heading up a major manhunt for a potential serial killer who’s working his way inward from the outskirts of the city. The copycat elements in the first crime scene lead Sturgis to retired FBI agent Jack Kale, who was responsible for apprehending and nearly killing the murderer known as the Scarecrow, the same Scarecrow who appears to be this new killer's terrible inspiration.

A reclusive single father and university professor, Kale is trying to keep the demons at bay through therapy and avoidance. That is, until Sturgis shows up asking for his help. Against his better judgment, Kale is drawn into the most dangerous cat and mouse game of his life. Robert Daniels's Once Shadows Fall, is a gripping thriller in the bestselling tradition of Silence of the Lambs and is sure to become a crime fiction classic.

--Kirkus Reviews

"Stunning psychological thriller...Engrossing twists, a smooth writing voice and a villain evil enough to make Hannibal Lecter consider retirement."
--RT Book Reviews, Top Pick

"An absolutely absorbing novel from first page to last, Once Shadows Fall showcases author Robert Daniel's complete mastery of the mystery thriller genre."
--Midwest Book Review

"A first novel that has the makings of a solid series...The denouement is somewhat like watching a Grucci fireworks spectacular, where the audience is wondering how he can top this. And as with fireworks, the buildup is spectacular."
--Bookreporter

"You're in for a real treat. What a novel! It takes your breath away and doesn't come back until the book (or case) is closed... If this is his first novel, what is he going to write for the encore?! Dynamic action and suspense collide with intellect in this psychological thriller."
--Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick

Darkly intriguing and full of unexpected twists, Once Shadows Fall is a psychological cat-and-mouse game that’s both intense and emotionally resonant.”
--Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award winning author

"Once Shadows Fall is a complex and well-written thriller with plenty of suspense and lots of action. An impressive debut."
--Thomas Perry, New York Times bestselling author of Forty Thieves

Robert Daniels is the new Thomas Harris. With a villain that is as sinister, creepy, and fascinating as he is compelling. A wonderful new talent has arrived, fully formed. This is the future of the thriller.”
