Catch a Shadow begins in the jungle of South America and quickly sets a rapid pace seven years later. Free after six years of wrongful imprisonment, Jake Kelly attempts to meet someone he hopes can provide answers about the failed jungle mission. Unfortunately, just as he arrives for the meeting his mysterious caller becomes the victim of a hit and run.
Paramedic Kirke Palmer breaks all the rules when she holds onto an envelope given to her by a dying patient instead of handing it over to the proper authorities. From that day on her life suddenly becomes a fight for survival. Within days, she is on the run with an ex-con she doesn't know and doesn't trust.
Twists and turns abound as Jake attempts to find the answers to the tragedy in the jungle and stop a relentless killer from striking again. The suspense never lets up with a cast of characters that include mercenaries, ex-cons, the FBI and CIA, a paramedic involved way over her head, and a cranky and talkative headstrong African Grey guard-parrot.
Patricia Potter has constructed a fantastic fast-paced thriller destined to keep the reader on the edge of his or her seat. The characters are believable and the tension real in this riveting story of betrayal, greed, and unexpected love.
When paramedic Kirke Palmer agreed to the deathbed request of a hit and run victim, she thought she was doing the right thing. Little did she realize that her good-will gesture would make her the target of a cold-blooded killer.
