Some secrets should just stay buried. On the day Tristan Morrow is born her mother goes missing, prompting an investigation that produces no solid leads. Fast forward 15 years, and the Morrow family still doesn’t know the truth behind Catherine Morrow’s disappearance. When 15 year old Tristan is required to write a biography on her mother for a school assignment, she learns the truth about her mother’s fate, and is hell-bent upon finding out who was responsible for her death. But when Tristan herself goes missing too, everyone is suspect, even her own father and boyfriend. Set in rural Fox Hollow, PA, Shadow Dancer unravels a web of lies, deceit, madness and corruption. Can investigators crack the case before Tristan meets the same fate as her mother? And who is responsible for the disappearances? There is much uncertainty as the investigation unfolds, but there is one thing that is certain: Tristan Morrow holds the master key to the entire riddle. 

Mama’s Thoughts:
I found this gripping tale to be not only breathtaking, but also revealing.  I felt I learned a lot about rural Pennsylvania, and what it might be like to have secrets to hide to stay alive.  Enthralling and gorgeously written, there were very few times when I found myself able to put Shadow Dancer down.  Although I wasn’t completely drawn in by Tristan, I did enjoy Tommy and Cole as supporting characters.  I think Tristan just came across as too aloof at times, thought that could probably be said about many girls her age.  For a thrill ride of a novel, this certainly didn’t leave out much detail, and I appreciated Kline’s attention to setting as a means of evoking a menacing or haunting feeling.  Nothing like being on the run trying to find answers to scare the daylights outta ya!  I would certainly recommend this to suspense lovers, or to anyone looking for something with a fast pace and quick wit.  4 stars!
