Haunted by nightmares of the Great War and devastated by the loss of his friend in battle, Cabel Evans lives in self-imposed isolation in his family’s summer home in St. Joseph, Michigan until a fellow soldier arrives asking for help in discovering who had murdered his daughter, Kittie. Cabel refuses until the soldier reveals that Cabel owes him a debt.
From the innocent distractions of the Silver Beach Amusement Park to the dark enticements of a Chicago speakeasy, Cabel’s past and present collide as he searches for the truth about Kittie’s death. While he finds more questions than answers, he soon realizes that the murder of the innocent sixteen-year-old girl in the small town of St. Joseph, Michigan is connected to Chicago’s underworld; a place ruled by Al Capone, where violence and corruption are currency and everyone is a pawn in someone else’s game.
In the novel Shadowlands, what began as a chance to repay a debt has become an opportunity for redemption. Yet just as Cabel realizes he wants to live, someone else wants him dead.
