From the #1 bestselling author of Fifty Years of Fear, SHADOWS OF REGRET is the unforgettable story of a woman’s struggle to rejoin society.
Katie committed a terrible crime. Sixteen years was the price she had to pay.
Once released from prison, she finds the world has changed. But Katie is a survivor.
Isolated and alone, she struggles to make sense of her new life. Starting again isn’t easy, especially after what she’s done.
Despite not feeling free or safe, Katie overcomes her fears and confronts the future. Although history won’t remain forgotten.
Gradually, memories of the past are revealed. When Katie finally exposes the awful truth and sees there are others who share the blame, she must choose her path.
Will she seek redemption, or will she take revenge?
Ever wondered what it would be like to do 16 years in prison to come out into the big wide world to learn that everything has changed? No you haven’t! because this is something that I really hadn’t about until I read this book . And this is exactly what happened to Katie in Shadows of Regret. I have to say that I found the subject matter really interesting and this story really got me thinking.
I have read all of the authors novels and this is certainly his best book to date. It is extremely well written using his work experience in prison which I have to say really stands out. Creating one very Unique story with a character that you will like and cannot help will on
For me this isn’t your normal fast paced read it is a steady engrossing read leaving me dying to know what Katie actually went to prison for. Yes you have to keep reading to find that one out. The story alternates between Katie’s childhood and how she is coping with her new life outside of prison.
I love the fact that the story is written from a female POV by a male author. Ross knows his stuff and is in touch with his feminine side or just simply because he knows women really well LOL you can feel the power and emotion of Katie’s journey through the authors writing. With each page leaving you wanting more.
Thank you to Caroline Vincent for inviting me to take part on blog tour all options are my own and not biased in anyway.
About The Author
I was born in 1973 in Peterborough and lived there until I was 20, attending The King’s School in the city. I then began a rather nomadic existence, living and working all over the country and various parts of the world.
I found myself returning to Peterborough many times over the years, usually when things had gone wrong. It was on one of these occasions that I met my partner about 100 metres from my back door whilst walking a dog. Two children swiftly followed. I’m still a little stunned by the pace of it now.
Fifty Years of Fear book was started a long time ago but parenthood and then after working in sales management all my life, i randomly spent four years as a prison officer. Ironically it was the four a.m. feed which gave me the opportunity to finish the book as unable to get back to sleep I completed it in the early morning hours.
I’ve now written five further books. My second book, The Boy Inside, was picked up by a publisher, and Lazy Blood is also out. All my books are thought provoking, and told with a sense of humour. Reading the reviews has been great.
The first three books are stand alone, however, some of the characters cross over, and you can see how at times, their lives overlap.
Abel’s Revenge is something a bit different. It’s a modern day love story set against the backdrop of an escalating serial killer. There’s a whodunnit element to it, and some smiles along the way.
Shadows of Regret was inspired by my time on the women’s side of the jail in Peterborough, and analyses the close relationship between victim and villain. You won’t have read a book like it.
I hope you enjoy reading them.
