Review: The Shadow Man by Mark Murphy

Goodreads:  Savannah surgeon Malcolm King had a perfect life--a loving wife, devoted daughter, and a thriving medical practice. But when a random airport parking lot hit-and-run links him to a dead body in a Florida hotel and an acquaintance is found dismembered and stuffed into a garbage bag, Malcolm finds himself on the run as a suspected serial killer. But he's no murderer. Or is he?

Who is the mysterious Thin Man who lurks at the edges of his vision? Are the ravens that crowd the skies overhead a warning of impending doom--or do they exist at all? 

Kritters Thoughts:  An eerie book that takes place in the beautiful city of Savannah, GA with old Southern homes full of ghost stories and such.  A surgeon who is known for his medical capabilities gets caught up in a string of murders of people who are connected to him, but he is completely innocent.  The reader is taken on a journey to find out who dun it and even is told in the end why he was the victim.  

The many turns this book took were more than entertaining.  It was very different from the normal who dun it because you were on the journey with the prime suspect as he was trying to build the case for the person who was really committing the murders.  I also enjoyed finding out the connections of those who were murdered to the innocent victim.  

I think all fans of the who dun it or mystery genres would definitely like this book as it is quite unique and was definitely hard to put down as it goes.

Are you looking for a spookie read for this October?  Pick this book up! 

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
