From New York Times bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the first in a new thriller series.

Everyone wondered about Shaye Archer’s past. Including Shaye.

Share Archer’s life effectively began the night police found her in an alley, beaten and abused and with no memory of the previous fifteen years, not even her name. Nine years later, she’s a licensed private investigator, with a single goal—to get answers for her clients when there aren’t supposed to be any.

And maybe someday, answers for herself.

Emma Frederick thought her nightmare was over when she killed her abusive husband, but someone is stalking her and tormenting her with mementos from her past. With no evidence to support her claims, the police dismiss her claims as post-traumatic stress, but Shaye is convinced that someone is deliberately terrorizing Emma…playing a cat and mouse game with only one goal in mind.

To kill Emma.

    Wow! What an amazing read - it is seldom I get to the end of a book without having a pretty darn good idea of ‘who did it’. But in Malevolent, I barely had a clue. With hindsight, I could imagine I had an inkling but, in reality, I didn’t. I look forward to reading more books by this exceptionally good author.

    A fast paced thriller. The case concludes but the story about the main character Shaye continues....

    Great twist at the end
  • Gripping

    By SamplattenGY
    Not an original title but an accurate one, this book had me gripped and page turning (scrolling) from the start to the end. Well written, well executed and easily the quickest I've read a book this year. I'll be reading more. 👍🏻
