Shadow Stalker

It all happened one morning. It was as if the world had gone mad. Well, maybe not the whole world, but enough of it to get noticed. People were waking up as if possessed; suffering souls resorting to tearing at their skin, crying out loud to no one in particular, haunted by a sudden internal torment that no one around them could decipher.

For investigative reporter Elijah, this news story was way bigger than a scoop. Unless he could unmask the truth behind the madness, how could he stop it, once and for all? And more urgent – how could he keep it from happening to him?

“To the pure all things are pure, but to the
corrupt and unbelieving nothing is pure. Their
very minds and consciences are corrupted.”
Titus 1:15 (NRSVCE)

“My first reaction upon finishing this story was that it is a powerful piece of fiction. It is very well written and moving.”

“T. M. Gaouette’s newest creation, Shadow Stalker, is a chilling tale that is impossible to put down. It is one of those stories that lingers in your mind long after you’ve read the last page. The premise of this thought-provoking novella is hard to describe since it left me equally heart-broken and full of hope. Shadow Stalker highlights the destruction of sin and the redemption of forgiveness in an unforgettable way.

Overnight, the world seems to have gone crazy as people wake up seemingly haunted by an invisible force. No one knows why these victims are being terrorized by this unknown source. But there must be a reason. The reader is taken on a journey with investigative reporter Eli as he scrambles to uncover what is happening.

Shadow Stalker is quite the departure from the author’s usual writing as she delves into some dark subject matter. But she tackles this new genre brilliantly. I’ve enjoyed all of Gaouette’s engaging novels. Her last few books, in particular, are full of powerful insights that bring our faith to life, making her a dynamic force in Catholic fiction. Through her impactful writing, Gaouette has become a champion for those without a voice and a strong defender of the most precious in our society.”
(Leslea Wahl, author of the award-winning novel The Perfect Blindside)

Shadow Stalker is unlike anything T. M. Gaouette has written before. In this supernatural thriller, Elijah wakes up to the biggest story of his lifetime. People close to home and throughout the world have gone mad overnight. Sirens blare. Emergency news reports on every channel. The strangeness strikes him personally when a pedestrian throws himself into the path of Elijah’s car. When Elijah rushes to his aid, he discovers that the pedestrian wants to die. And the others . . . they seem to want that too.

With paranormal elements and a high sense of urgency, this story is riveting and intense. My first thought after reading it: the powerful themes—or maybe warnings—speak to disturbing elements of today’s culture.

Contemporary fiction author T. M. Gaouette takes her creativity and writing skills to a new genre. I look forward to reading more from her in the supernatural thriller genre.”
(Theresa Linden, author of award-winning Battle for His Soul)

“A little bit The Twilight Zone. A little bit Birdbox. A little bit a classic novel I can’t mention with it becoming a spoiler. Shadow Stalker is an eerie tale that leaves the reading with a sense of the profound horror of sin – even hidden sins – and the even greater power of forgiveness.”
(Carolyn Astfalk, author of Rightfully Ours)
