J.S. Winn

Author J.S. Winnabout this book: Out of the Shadow tells the story of two women drawn together in the present to uncover a crime from the past.

Fear is an insidious emotion; it causes us not only to distrust those around us, but also to distrust ourselves. Can we believe the assurances of others that we are safe? How far do we trust our memories when others insist that we're wrong?

In the opening chapter of Out of the Shadow, Becca Rosen is raped in her bedroom, and her husband is murdered and left to die in their living room. The police can't find any proof of a break-in, so she becomes the lead suspect for the murder. Becca believes that she's got a stalker who did it, but she can't prove it, and each time she tells the police about her convictions, the evidence doesn't hold up.

Becca decides to seek professional help from Dr. Sarah Abrams, a therapist who specializes in Repressed Memory Syndrome. Yet Dr. Abrams, too, is grappling with love, betrayal, and the possibility of a new relationship on the horizon.

Out of the Shadow is a story within a story…within another story. That level of complexity can be a mess in the hands of an unskilled writer, but author J. S. Winn's novel is so exquisitely dovetailed that the pieces unfold cleanly and clearly.

First- and third-person perspectives alternate in a series of twists and turns that offer a stunning conclusion to a story replete with intrigue and deceptions.

Like the layers of an onion, OUT OF THE SHADOW peels away personalities, motivations, underlying motives, and dark, long-hidden secrets that immerse a circle of people in a web of dangerous associations.

The conclusion is riveting, unexpected, and as satisfying as the rising psychological suspense which begins from the first page and ends with a bang. D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review
