"[A] compelling reading experience....Romance, suspense, witty dialogue, and swiftly-drawn but completely believable characters make this a book which offers something for everyone. Fans of Bowen's other "Rapid Read" novels will not be disappointed, and those who haven't yet experienced her work can start with this one. The Shadow Killer is a book which will appeal both to adult readers and to reluctant senior high school students. The exploration of the father-son dynamic will resonate with readers of both genders, and the swift-moving plot will keep readers engaged, regardless of their reading skill level."

"Packs a lot of action into a mere 87 pages. The Rapid Reads line of books is perfect for the adult on the go who desires an intriguing read that can be devoured in one setting."

"A quick read for those who like mysteries, but do not have the time to read something longer...This is a good book for middle or junior high school readers seeking a pleasure read that is quick and easy."
