The surprises are fast and furious and will leave you breathless to read more.”Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Catch Me and Love You More on THE PROPHET

“The best book of its kind since Thomas Harris retired Hannibal Lecter, a cat-mouse-game extraordinaire that will leave your knuckles white and your stomach churning.”Jon Land, Bestselling Author of Strong Vengeance on THE PROPHET

“Solid, memorable storytelling that moves rapid-fire through a complex and gripping plot. Ethan Cross is one of the sharpest emerging writers on the thriller fiction scene today.” – Steven James, National Bestselling Author of Opening Moves and The Pawn on THE PROPHET

“Ethan Cross electrifies in THE PROPHET, the stunning new installment in the bestselling Shepherd series. THE PROPHET confirms, confidently and vociferously, that Ethan Cross is one of the best damn writers in the genre.”Anthony J. Franze, Bestselling Author of THE LAST JUSTICE on THE PROPHET

“The twists and turns of this intricately plotted novel will keep readers on their toes and flipping pages furiously.”RT Book Reviews on THE SHEPHERD

“THE PROPHET is a terrifying, twist-laden tempest of a thriller that builds to a climax even more ferocious and chilling than the blizzard in which it’s set. With a flawed-yet-likable cast of protagonists pitted against some of the most terrifying and believable villains in recent memory, Ethan Cross’s latest is a definite must-read.”Jeremy Burns, Author of FROM THE ASHES

“The Shepherd is a nonstop suspense novel with great twists, great drama, and an ending that will knock you on the floor.” – – Lou Aronica, New York Times Bestselling Author

“In The Shepherd, Ethan Cross has penned a taut, violent, and relentless nightmare designed to prey on a reader’s darkest fears. Not for the faint of heart!”A.J. Hartley, Bestselling author of What Time Devours and Act of Will.

“THE SHEPHERD is an intense novel that will have you locking your windows and doors, installing a safe room and taking Ambien so you can sleep through the night after finishing. Ethan Cross opens up the mind of a serial killer, exposes you to it, and leaves you with years of therapy bills. But this thrill-ride is worth every penny.”Jeremy Robinson, Bestselling Author of PULSE and INSTINCT
