Chasing Shadows

Overview

At last, Shelby Belgarden has put her crime-solving behind her and has returned to the life of an ordinary teenager. Now 16, she has taken her first job: working at a new local restaurant called The Steak Place. But when one of her co-workers — a waitress named Nadine — goes missing, Shelby suspects foul play. The police won’t believe her. Neither will Shelby’s boyfriend, Greg, who grows frustrated with her search for a criminal who may not exist.

Reviews

Valerie Sherrard does an amazing job of pulling together all the seemingly unrelated and tangled ends of the plot, and in the tradition of great mystery writers, leaves us with a cliff-hanger.
