This book was amazing! It fulfilled all my dark needs for some twisted and horrific gore with an splash of torture. After an innocent virgin is brutally, tortured, raped and dismembered, her angry spirit is set out to get some payback. What follows is a horrific whirlwind of death and destruction as she avenges herself, one tormentor at a time. Some of the methods of death were quite unique and had me grinning in sadistic pleasure! I was completely obsessed with this book from beginning to end and was eagerly lapping up the thrills. With no holds barred, the author delves into the deep underbelly of human depravity which will shock and horrify you. What makes it even more terrifying is the fact that these sordid affairs are really happening all over the world.....right now...

A troubled detective A tormented serial murderer Sundays in Pretoria are dangerous for selected women. A murderer plagued by his childhood, has found a distinctive modus operandi to salve his pathological need to escape the domination of the person who was supposed to cherish him.

This was one helluva murder mystery! You get to piggyback a ride with The Bathroom Strangler as he takes out his anger on women who remind him of his abusive mother. You also get to see the flipside with Nico, the detective on the case, as he deciphers the crime scenes and works to catch the gruesome murderer. With quite a few unexpected twists, some truly gritty cops and murder scenes that will slice right through you, this was one compelling read! Finally an author that will get close and personal with a serial killer inside his insane head! The ending will quite catch you by surprise and had me gripping my tablet with white knuckles and sitting with my back against a wall! Absolutely splendid!

“Dark, twisted and creepy, Shadows will take you out of your comfort zone and keep you glued to the pages of the book, regardless of whether or not you want to.” – Tammy February, Women24.com

“If you like your horror as warped as it gets, you’ll love this genuinely scary page-turner. I’m looking forward to reading what she does next – although I suspect I’ll be reaching for the sominex afterwards.” – Something Wicked
Wow - this book took my mind, twisted it and shut it in a box screaming! I loved this book! Starting off with an immediate plunge into insanity, this fast paced thriller sinks it's claws into your mind and just will not let go. Just when you think you're leveling out, the author throws another insane twist at you over and over again, keeping you on your toes as delicious horror runs up your back in cleats. I found myself quite unable to put this fascinatingly lunatic book down and stayed up late into the night reading it! If you like to be surprised with your mind being ripped out and your boundaries pushed, then this is the book for you! Absolutely awesome!
Joan De La Haye writes horror and some very twisted thrillers. She invariably wakes up in the middle of the night, because she’s figured out yet another freaky way to mess with her already screwed up characters.Joan is interested in some seriously weird stuff. That’s probably also one of the reasons she writes horror. Joan is deep, dark and seriously twisted and so is her writing.
