Crystal, the graceful and sublime upper-class society woman sees a ghost that resurrects from the buried past. As an abandoned, vulnerable black child in racially tensed New York City, of 1963, she was beaten and gang-raped by four boys while trying to stowaway. Before life could return to normalcy, she finds that she is pregnant from the rape. Against all odds and counsel, Crystal decides to keep her baby, Zulu.

The story takes us through decades as Crystal becomes one of the richest women in the US.

The four boys grow into members of the upper crust in society: a judge, a basket ball player, a plastic surgeon/talk show host, and a secret agent.

Crystal confronts her past assailant: to make them pay for their crime or risk exposure!

Then the killings start. First Bill, then Tim.

What is the conspiracy? Who was next on the list?

What was lurking in the "shadows?"

Was it Crystal or was someone trying to set her up for these murders?

Again, Eve, author of the critically- acclaimed novel, "Tangled," uses very brilliant nets of intrigue and suspense in "Shadows "that keeps the reader guessing to the very end. The rich language of court room drama, the in-depth character analysis, the imagery of various continents, is done with such clarity as she skillfully takes the reader through an emotional ride of sorrow to joy, pride to shame, anger to forgiveness, pity and desperation to love, and triumph.

If you love mystery, romance, thriller, espionage, this book is the hook-up for you. You never put it down until the very last page. "Readers comments"
