Publisher's Summary

The Assassin Chronicles TV series is in development with Council Tree Productions.  

Two recent murders. Two serial killers. A conspiracy that reaches beyond the physical world.  

Consumed with grief over the tragic death of her husband, FBI Agent Victory McClane is obsessed with finding Ohio's serial killer, "The Wrapper". When another young woman turns up dead and the victim is linked to Derrick Lynn, son of the secretary of defense, Victory finds Derrick has all the right answers and is a little too helpful.  

Derrick has a secret: He's a government assassin who uses his unusual paranormal skills to eliminate targets. Determined to keep his own secrets buried, he offers to help find the Wrapper. But can Victory trust him?  

As the body count rises, Victory must cross a dangerous line - into a world of government cover-ups, murder, and betrayal - a decision that will test her limits and everything in which she believes.  

The battle between good and evil begins! Deadly Shadow is the first audiobook in the gripping paranormal/supernatural thriller series, an action-packed blend of suspense and mystery for detective and crime story lovers.

What a great take on paranormal mystery

Kim Cresswell created a brilliant world filled with murder, justice, paranormal abilities and life's grey areas. I truly felt for The main characters as they struggled with right verses wrong and all of the middle pieces that are the realm of everyday hard decisions. I nearly cried for the main character as she struggled with her grief as she tries to catch two killers. I truly want more.

My only criticism of this audiobook is the male choices the narrator makes. They are all nearly the same and they all sound like they have been smoking for 60 years. Perhaps she can work on improving it or just not make voices for the men.

Good start to series

I enjoyed this listen. The story was the typical serial killer tale with a bit of psychic drama thrown in. The narration was good but could have been better if someone else had done the male voices.

WOOOHOOO PARANORMAL/SERIAL KILLER THRILLER!

Yes, folks, it has BOTH. Paranormal, and FBI/crime/serial killer thriller all rolled into one. And, it's GOOD!

Great story! I love the idea, and think Kim Cresswell definitely did it justice. Really cool blend of crime thriller & paranormal thriller. Great characters, loved the narration.

I'd welcome listening to more from this pair (author/narrator), and I really enjoyed listening!

This book deserves 10 stars!

Wow...this book is fanfreakintastic!! It leaves you wanting more!
Victory...love the name btw...is an FBI agent in OH. She’s dealing with the grief from the recent loss of her husband in a bank robbery...and also trying to catch a killer known as The Wrapper. This killer wraps his victims in bubble wrap and burns them alive. Eesh! The Wrapper has eluded authorities for over 10 yrs. Victory is also hunting down another killer dubbed The Shadow because there’s no evidence of his existence other than his victims. Derek is a paranormal...and he Is The Shadow. He can travel outside of his body to get the job done. By day, he is the owner of a gaming company and son of a senator. By night, he is an assassin for the government. Derek and Victory cross paths when one of his employees is abducted and killed by The Wrapper. Derek is intrigued by the FBI agent and sends flower with a request to take her to dinner. When The Wrapper hits too close to home and Victory needs his powers, will Derek help? No spoilers on how this ends but just know that you will not want to stop listening/put the book down until the end! This author does not disappoint and I can’t wait for the next book!!
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great New Series

This book shows Kim Creswell at her best, as she hits another homerun out of the park with her new series The Assassin Chronicles. I loved this audio, I mean what more could one ask for kick butt take no name FBI agent and widower Victory, government assassin by paranormal powers and in love with aforementioned FBI Agent Derrick, a serial killer "The Wrapper" and much more. There is a ton of action and even more twists and turns and suspense you can cut with a knife, this book has everything. If you happen to get the audio than you will have the treat of listening to Robin Siegerman narrating, and she is good, she sucks you right into the world and you get lost and never look back. These two make a great pair for this series and I hope they stay together.

Great new series!

I loved this book. I mean, I love a good murder mystery, especially with a paranormal spin on it. The characters and world building are well done in this book and really grabbed my attention right away. Coupled with solid narration, this was a very great listening experience. I'll definitely be looking for more in this series!

Get Hooked

This is the first Kim Cresswell book I've read, and boy have I ever been missing out! The characters walked off the page and into my mind, what they saw, I saw, what they felt, I felt, and boy did I ever feel it. I grinned, I cried, and I didn't care how many odd looks I got from the other train passengers, I couldn't help myself.

The story is fast moving, there's a lot happening and it weaves an interesting tapestry of events and connections. The paranormal element of the story is well done and not overdone. It left me wanting to know what other abilities are out there.

Loved the narration, the character voices are clear and recognizable and the delivery conveyed the tone and emotions of the different parts of the story.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Excellent!!

Everything that makes a thriller thrilling was included in this listen. A hard-working and sympathetic FBI agent. A seriously deranged serial killer. An excellent cat and mouse chase on not one, but two mysteries. Add to that, a secret society of paranormal agents working for the government. Excellent!

There were quite a few uncomfortable moments in this listen and the author never let up. The suspense was constant. That ending was insane.

The narrator could do no wrong. She handled the extreme emotional pendulum swing from male to female, from cop to crazy, from killing to killing.

I will definitely look for the next book in this series.

Well done!

Deadly Shadow is a murder mystery with a small side of paranormal suspense. The story has plenty of suspense to hold a wayward attention. This story will pull at your heart strings. The narrator did a good job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.

What a great story!

I seriously loved this book! The twist and turns kept me on my toes every time I thought I had things figured out. Victory is. Strong female FBI agent grieving the loss of her husband. The two cases she is simultaneously working on are full of murder, Intrigue paranormal abilities and more! It’s hard to write a review without spoilers so I’ll just say if you are into paranormal drama real life scenarios full of intrigue and suspense this is definitely a book for you. Can’t wait for the next book.

The story line is a 10 but I’m rating a 4 as the narration is just ok. Don’t let that discourage you as the story is excellent
