The Shadow Man is a twisty thriller that will leave you gasping for more. The first standalone from the bestselling author of the Perfect series, Helen Fields.

The Shadow Man sees a new protagonist, Dr Connie Woolwine, who is an American psychological profiler, arrive in Edinburgh.


he’s been called in to team up with D.I. Brodie Barda, a kidnapping specialist from London, following the disappearance of a young mother with a wealthy father-in-law. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. More kidnappings follow, brazen and relentless. The Shadow Man watches, waits and takes who he wants when he wants. And the truth behind his crimes is more terrifying than Connie Woolwine has ever encountered before.

He collects his victims. But he doesn’t keep them safe…

Elspeth, Meggy and Xavier are locked in a flat. They don’t know where they are, and they don’t know why they’re there. They only know that the shadow man has taken them, and he won’t let them go.
Desperate to escape, the three of them must find a way out of their living hell, even if it means uncovering a very dark truth.
Because the shadow man isn’t a nightmare. He’s all too real.
And he’s watching.
