Description


Thanksgiving, downtown New York City, 2005. In the early morning hours an extraordinary young woman dies horribly—as a topless Kate Moss peers down from a billboard over rain-spattered Houston Street.

Detective Darlene O'Hara of the Seventh Precinct has a drinking problem that only exacerbates the massive chip on her shoulder. When her case–the very bad death of a beautiful, brilliant NYU student–turns high-profile and is handed to a legendary NYPD Homicide detective, she refuses to let it go. But Darlene's unauthorized investigation is dragging her and partner Serge "K" Krekorian far from the ivory towers of academia into the very worst corners of the city—where the same shocking secrets that destroyed a teenager now threaten to obliterate O'Hara's life and career.

Praise for Shadows Still Remain…


“Startling plot twists. . . . In the noirish, character-driven vein of Dennis Lehane or Michael Connelly.”
-New York Times

“A hectic, witty and emotionally satisfying thriller. . . . [O’Hara is] a terrific character, fresh and funny and infuriating. . . . A stunner.”
-Chicago Tribune

“First-rate crime fiction. . . . The book is alive with the sounds and smells and sins of New York. . . . When the crime-fiction aficionados set out to pick their best first novel of the year, SHADOWS STILL REMAIN will be a contender.”
-Washington Post

“Delivers enough twists and turns for any thriller reader. . . . De Jonge conveys enough texture that it isn’t hard to imagine this on the big screen. Here’s hoping we see O’Hara again.”
-Library Journal

“SHADOWS STILL REMAIN is a killer of a thriller with a wonderfully human, perfectly rendered heroine at its center. You can’t help but fear for her and root for her in equal measure. A terrific read.”
-Dennis Lehane

“Peter de Jonge’s heroine Darlene O’Hara is one of the freshest, hippest detective creations in many a year. This novel is an absolute knockout and a half.”
-James Patterson

“SHADOWS has grit, color, suspense, and believable characters, and is delivered in a sharp and gratifyingly terse prose. . . . This guy is good.”
-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“[A] cleverly plotted and sophisticated thriller.”
-Washington Post, Best Book of the Year Pick
