VALLEY OF SHADOWS
Miranda Sheldon overhears information about when a man's life is to be ended. She acts without thinking and saves the man's life. Now Hawke Morran -- secretly contracted by the DEA -- can do no less for her. Hawke is accused of murder and they are on the run for their lives. Shirlee McCoy's Valley of Shadows (3) is a compassionate story of two people now tied together. The story offers great suspense, but some elements of the plot, though inventive, are unrealistic.
