Shadow Mountain: Book Two

The capture of the Tattoo Murderer has demanded a heavy price. Doctor Tobias Darwin is dead, Lieutenant Hart is back in Riverside licking his substantial wounds, and he needs to gather his courage and tell Isaac he made a mistake. Isaac will forgive him—he knows that—but he can't promise Isaac an easy life. Being a cop comes with its own risks, after all.

When they finally reach the same wavelength, their idyllic reprieve is cut tragically short. Hart doesn't know yet that Isaac is terminally ill, that he will take off to find the Phoenix to heal him as a last resort. This time, it will be Hart who pays the price.

In the meantime, a new killer roams the streets of Riverside. He kidnaps, tortures, and kills gay men in horrific ways, and he has the newly healed Isaac in his sights. Hart’s time is running out on every level.

I really liked this book and I thought even though it could be read as a standalone book it would be best to go back and read book 1: Fated first… I liked it so much I went and bought book 1

I love Indra's writing style and she can certainly set up a plot. I think, oddly, if I hadn't read book 1, I might have enjoyed this more, as that book set the bar pretty near to 40. But for continuity, I'm glad I read the first book before starting on this one. Overall a very good book I enjoyed reading.

I could not put this book down. It didn't matter that I hadn't read book 1, although I will be ASAP, the story flowed easily through its twists and turns. A thoroughly great read.
