Intense, gritty and absolutely riveting, Land of Shadows took my breath away. The power of Rachel Howzell Hall's prose and the sophistication of her plotting grabbed me immediately. Even so, her most dazzling accomplishment is bringing to life LAPD detective Lou Norton, whose passionate voice is still reverberating in my head. A phenomenal book I'm recommending far and wide. This better be the start of a series! Hilary Davidson
