Praise for this book

"A fast paced, all too real thriller with a villain right out of James Patterson and Criminal Minds." - Andrew Gross

"In The Shepherd, Ethan Cross has penned a taut, violent and relentless nightmare designed to prey on a reader's darkest fears. Not for the faint of heart!" - A J Hartley

"The Shepherd is a superbly crafted thriller skillfully delving into the twisted mind of a psychopath and the tormented soul of the man destined to bring him down. Ethan Cross weaves a tale so chilling, I was afraid to turn out the lights. Highly recommended!" - D B Henson

"THE SHEPHERD is an intense novel that will have you locking your windows and doors, installing a safe room and taking Ambien so you can sleep through the night after finishing. Ethan Cross opens up the mind of a serial killer, exposes you to it, and leaves you with years of therapy bills. But this thrill-ride is worth every penny." - Jeremy Robinson
