Edge of Sanity

An Edge Novel, #3

This novel in the “Edge” series is great! Not having read the other novels in this series does not hamper a reader from enjoying Clay’s story. This is a page-turner book, so find time to read this one as you won’t put it down once you start! Nonstop action and character depths also aid in providing a deeper story behind the scenes. Butcher provides strong characters, motivations, and suspense in the mystery surrounding Clay.

When Clay wakes up missing time and wearing dried blood, he calls on his friend and colleague, Mira, for help. She, in turn, contacts the head of Edge’s security (Payton Bainbridge) for help. Payton sends Clay to a private place without phones, computers, and televisions. However, Clay is not alone throughout his ordeals: Payton also sends Dr. Leigh Vaughn to help Clay unravel his problems.

And his problems add up fast! Soon Leigh and Clay are on their own having to work through bullets, syringes, and trust issues to find out what is happening to Clay. Trust is a word which comes up often in this novel. Trust between friends, lovers, therapist-patient relationships, and colleagues are explored as Clay and Leigh search for answers in their quest. Mysterious meetings in the dark, murder-for-hire plots, and hypnosis are just a few of the plot twists in this story of drama and love.

This is the third novel in the “Edge” series. I look forward to reading the first two just as much as I would a fourth, if there ever is one.

Book Blurb for Edge of Sanity

Brace yourself for cutting-edge suspense in the scorching third novel of Shannon K. Butcher’s new action-romance series...


In his years working for the private security firm The Edge, Clay Marshall has seen it all. But the recent blackouts he's been having are new. So is waking up with blood on his hands and clothes, with no memory of where the blood came from—or who he might have killed. He hates to admit it, but he needs help.

Dr. Leigh Vaughn has treated other Edge employees before, but from the moment she sees him for the first time, Clay strikes her as a special breed of man. She knows he’s dangerous, and distrustful of doctors, but she finds herself drawn to him even as his own steely exterior gives way to his growing desire for her.

Neither knows, however, that Clay is being used as a pawn in a larger experiment, and that his blackouts are only the first step toward a terrifying goal. And both Leigh and Clay will put themselves in harm’s way to stop an unseen enemy—and to save one another.
