Chasing the Shadows (Nikki and Michael Book 3) by Keri Arthur, Reviewed by Venture




Nikki James is in San Francisco at the request of her partner and best friend, Jake. The wife of an old friend is missing, and Jake intends to find her—whatever the cost. The authorities believe the kidnappings to be the work of a sick mind, but Nikki knows that the truth is something much worse—especially since she seems to have an unexpected psychic link to the killer. But as always, she is more than willing to risk her own life to save another’s.

For Michael Kelly, Nikki’s bravado is a source of endless terror. He wants nothing more than to make Nikki a permanent part of his life, but he knows that her quest is sure to get her killed. As they chase through the sewers and tunnels of San Francisco and the body count begins to rise, Michael badgers her to stay off the case, but Nikki has no intention of complying. She wants him to realize that she’s either a full partner in his life or she’s out. But nothing prepares her for the price she has to pay for her stubbornness—the life of someone she loves.

Includes an excerpt of the next novel in Keri Arthur’s Nikki and Michael series, Kiss the Night Goodbye


Nikki James is called by her best friend to help solve a crime at the hotel he is working at.  Woman are missing and one of them is the wife of his friend. He knows with her special gifts that she is likely to find her.  However, she doesn’t bother to mention it to her other half Michael since he has been out of town on business.  While he is heading home, he also gets a call to head to San Francisco to find the monster responsible for these missing woman.  He tells them it will have to wait until he sees Nikki.  Coming home to an empty house and a note saying that she has started a case send him rushing to follow her.  Michael is right to worry because the body count seems to get higher and higher.  He wants to protect her and Nikki wants to be a full partner or nothing else.  Will this case end their relationship or will Michael finally get a clue that it is a new century where the woman doesn’t stay home and doesn’t always need to be protected?  Either way, they’ve got to keep on their toes because this killer has a few special skills and he will do anything to prevent Nikki from getting into his way.

I was given the third book in this series to review.  This book can stand alone but I’m in a hurry to read the previous books.  I am a big fan of the Riley Jensen series by Keri Arthur and was so disappointed when the series ended.  Now I have a new series to collect the books on.  If you like strong woman characters who can kick butt and the paranormal, you will love this book.  I know that I love this book and have ordered the previous books and preordered all the books in the future!

Pre-purchase book on Amazon
