Publisher's Summary

For Nick Wade, life was an endless series of heroin-fuelled highs and lows. Alienated from most of his remaining family, Nick leads a vagabond existence as one of West Philly's lost addicts. When his girlfriend is killed in a car accident, Nick is ordered to Springbrook Healing and Recovery Center. There he forges an uneasy friendship with his roommate, an alcoholic named John Curran, and meets fellow heroin addict Sarah McCallister. As Nick struggles with the agony and sickness of withdrawal, he finds no solace even at night, when his dreams are filled with images of blood and murder.

By Margo S Mixon on 07-25-16

Well written and well read

Would you consider the audio edition of The Shadowman to be better than the print version?

The narrator made Joe's novel a movie in my head!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nick because his struggles made you have compassion for him and made me root for him.

Have you listened to any of Scott MacDonald’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Currently listening to another Scott MacDonald performance. I thoroughly enjoy his narrative skill. His deliver holds my attention and takes me into the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when Nick and Sara escaped the facility. The love scene was terrific. Nick's sacrifice scene.

Any additional comments?

I appreciate the ability to "hear" a book rather than "read" due to my busy schedule. I look forward to listening to more books written by Joeseph as well as other books narrated by Scott MacDonald. Together they are a compelling team.
