    The Silver Shadow

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on May 19, 2021

    Just who was the Silver Shadow? Why were women in Denver attacked, and often killed, with no apparent motive? These are the questions that rookie news reporter Polly Blythe is determined to answer, with the help of Denver policeman Edwin Price. Author Liz Tolsma has created an intriguing fictional story around the true facts of this crime wave that terrorized Denver in 1900-1901, and she imagines the thoughts of Polly, Edwin, and the criminal that she has dubbed The Silver Shadow. The intrigue kept me guessing throughout the story, and I was especially interested in the Shadow's reasons for attacking these innocent women. Tolsma vividly depicts the extreme fear of Denver citizens, and the frustrations of those who failed to stop this assailant, and she adds even more interest by creating a romantic connection between Polly and Edwin! Apparently. there's little recorded information about these crimes, and the author's notes explain what is fact and what is fiction. I enjoyed The Silver Shadow and I recommend it to all who enjoy historical fiction and romantic suspense. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing via Net Galley and was under no obligation to post a review.

Polly Blythe is a reporter determined to make a name for herself in the newspaper business which is dominated by men. When she teams up with a police officer to help solve the crime will the killer be found? Will she get her big break with a front page story? This one is hard to put down once you start reading. There is lots of action and clues along the way to the ending.
