Review: Excellent pacing, a brilliant story, superb characters, and a wonderful evocation of the period as well as a great crime mystery.

During 1960, Rupert Highsmith, lover of Ena’s associate Artie Mallory, receives anonymous letters and compromising photographs taken twenty-four years earlier in Berlin.

While researching the parentage of a young woman claiming to be the daughter of Ena’s friend, Priscilla Galbraith, Highsmith is almost killed in a hit and run.

The investigation takes Ena to Shetland where she learns that the would-be assassin of Highsmith (and PM Stanley Baldwin in 1936) is dead.

Who wants to kill Rupert Highsmith, and more importantly, why?

Who took the compromising photographs in 1936?

And is the girl who says she’s Priscilla’s daughter the child that was stolen nineteen years ago?

Meet Madalyn Morgan:

Madalyn Morgan was an actress for more than thirty years working in repertory theatre, the West End, film, and television.

Madalyn was brought up in a busy working-class pub in the market town of Lutterworth in Leicestershire. She was Christened Madalyn Smith, the name she chose when she joined the actors union, Equity.

Unfortunately, there was already an actress with that name, so with seconds to decide on another name Madalyn chose Morgan from a rum bottle. “The pub was a great place for an aspiring actress and writer to live. There were so many characters to study and accents to learn.”

At twenty-four Madalyn gave up a successful hairdressing salon and wig-hire business for a place at East 15 Drama College, and a career as an actress.

In 1990, Madalyn gave up acting for love and love gave her up in 2000.

Rather than start again in the acting business, Madalyn became a radio presenter, taught herself to touch type, completed a two-year creative writing course with The Writer’s Bureau, and wrote articles for newspapers and magazines.

After living in London for thirty-six years she has returned to Lutterworth, swapping two window boxes and a mortgage, for a garden and the freedom to write. And she is loving it.

Review by Jeanie McKinley:

With grateful thanks to Madalyn Morgan for another brilliantly written book.

In the Shadow Sleeper,  we’re back with Ena and Artie, and their investigations, where we are taken on a rollercoaster of a journey.

I don’t want to give anything away, but it has had me sitting on the edge of my seat, holding my breath many times.

Shadow Sleeper held my attention from beginning to end. This is the tenth book I’ve read by this amazing author, and can highly recommend this fantastic series
