Description

A nemesis out of the past suddenly returns, forcing Josh Bartlett to come to terms with his true identity.

Josh Bartlett had figured all the angles, changed his name, holed up as a small-town features writer in the seclusion of the Blue Ridge. Only a few weeks more and he'd begin anew, return to the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut and Molly (if she'd have him) and, at long last, live a normal life. After all, it was a matter of record that Zharko had been deported well over a year ago. The shadowy form Josh had glimpsed yesterday at the lake was only that—a hazy shadow under the eaves of the activities building. It stood to reason his old nemesis was still ensconced overseas in Bucharest or thereabouts well out of the way. And no matter where he was, he wouldn't travel thousands of miles to track Josh down.

Advance Praise

“By turns charming and chilling, Shadow of the Gypsy is that rarest of gems, a crime novel that curdles the blood, even as it tugs on the heartstrings. Frome keeps the reader on a knife’s edge in this compelling tale of danger, betrayal, and the generational pain of a sympathetic everyman whose life depends on reconciling—and finally defeating—his past.”

– Jaden Terrell, author of A Taste of Blood and Ashes, River of Glass, A Cup Full of Midnight, and Racing the Devil!!

“Frome brings a keen sense of place, from Connecticut to the Blue Ridge Mountains, as Zharko hatches his dark plan for the innocent Sonny, who wants nothing more than to leave his past behind. Sharp writing, and a keen pace keeps this story rolling.”

– Lee A. Jacobus, author of Crown Island and Hawaiian Tales

“Shelly Frome writes from the heart . . . he creates strong characters who live in intriguing places . . . the plot is spell-binding . . . this mystery will hold your attention to the last page . . . well written!!”

– Henry McCarthy, host of Poets and Writers, WEHC 90.7!!

“Once you start, you won’t want to stop reading Shadow of the Gypsy by Shelly Frome. It pulls you in on the wild ride as a reporter is forced to participate in a Russian mob crime because of a debt owed from childhood. On the edge of your seat, it sweeps you back to his old home as he tries to fill in the empty blanks from his youth when he witnessed a crime. Now as an adult, he must rise to take action to stop life from controlling him. Instead of reporting the story, he becomes part of it.”

– Jana Zinser, author of The Children’s Train: Escape from the Kindertransport and Fly Like a Bird
