Tracking a Shadow was an interesting book, but ridiculously predictable. (I had it figured out within the first few chapters, give or take a few things).

Emily contacts Jarvis after claiming to have a stalker, she seeks his protection and detective skills to help keep her safe, and put this man or woman behind bars. Right off the bat something didn’t seem right, but Jarvis takes on the case anyways, and he’s in for the ride of his life.

I wouldn’t necessarily categorize this book as a thriller and it definitely wouldn’t hit a suspense list. The excitement was low key and nothing really crazy happened.

All of the moments that should have been intense and mind boggling were just kind of plopped into the plot. It all was very unceremonious and fell a little flat.

You get to know the characters decently well, but mainly focus on Jarvis the PI, and Emily his client. There are multiple supporting characters but only one that really makes an impact towards the end, and you don’t get a lot of information there either.

I’m interested in the next book (not sure the info on it) because you know a little bit about the character who calls seeking help from Jarvis. The last page or so definitely peeked my interest the most.

I don’t think I would recommend this book. It just wasn’t as gripping or exciting as a thriller should be.
I enjoyed the book from the very beginning. My gut instinct helped make some conclusions as to what was going to happen and there were still surprises for me in the book. It was very creative and well written with great editing as well. I am looking forward to the next installment as I really enjoy Jarvis. I love that this wasn’t the typical cliche detective novel.
