Romance, suspense and learning more about God in the process? What more could a book provide? Good one by Dee Henderson. Cover of the book states that it is a prequel to the O'Malley series. I'm not familiar with it yet, but plan on looking for more of her writings right now!

This is an excellent read. High drama FBI type. A good story with a dab of romance to round it out. On the edge of your seat the whole time.. And she ended it excellently and your not left hanging. That's a pet peeve of mine. I think I'm hooked on this author.

I put off reading any of Dee Henderson's books because I was afraid of how suspenseful (read: scary) they would be. Now that I've read Danger in the Shadows I am looking forward to reading all of her books! I enjoyed it so much and it wasn't nearly as terrifying as I'd thought it might be while still being intense and gripping enough that I didn't want to put it down. Suffice it to say, I read it in one day and loved it! (Great love story....)

This seems like it's gonna be a great series. Enjoyed this book, it was a quick read. Looking forward to the next book. I loved that there was no bad language to worry about in this book.

Update: I read as far as the 3rd book in this series. They are just overly religious for me (and I am a religious person!) First book was awesome, but it just seemed to go downhill from there.

The entire series of the O'Malleys was truly gripping. From one book to the next I was completely absorbed, wanting to know what was going to happen next. Truly an excellent series!

I really like Dee Henderson's books. They can be a little predictable, but the characters are always interesting and have thought-provoking relationships and conversations about faith and how it is lived out. Always a nice clean romance too!

I really enjoyed this book. From the first page it just grips you -- draws you in. I was very pleasantly surprised and highly recommend it. It is a romance, a thriller and a mystery of sorts. It is also not preachy as are some Christian novels - (I don't like it when the author throws in sermons throughout their novels... annoying.)

A great read full of suspense and action!

"Her life is not her own...the bureau owns her. Under FBI protection, Sara isn't even Sara Walsh anymore. Her name is what they tell her. Her home is where they send her. And she's never there for long. A stranger owns her. Though faceless, he haunts Sara's dreams. He's the man who abducted her as a child and continues to stalk her. He's the one who is determined to end their connection--and Sara's life. But most of all, fear owns her. Which makes falling in love with a man as high profile as Adam Black a bad idea. And a dangerous one. For both of them. Sara's world is an unsafe place for love--and certainly an unsafe place for the children Adam longs for. No one knows that better than Sara, and she can't take the risk.... But if she doesn't, her life will never be her own. Where will she find the courage to name her terror and face her fear?"

Terri Blackstock says "I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense."

I don't read romance novels normally but this one was different. Firstly, it was a Christian romance and secondly it was more of a thriller than romance. Very good book.

I've read a LOT of books in my lifetime, mostly Christian Fiction. This romantic thriller, probably my favorite genre, is by far the best one of it's kind in the Christian Fiction department. Henderson is a superb writer, weaving a wonderful love story with an edge-of-your-seat suspense together. She is totally on point with the spiritual struggle a christian goes through when bad things happen to good people. Henderson does not disappoint in the dialogue section, one of my personal pet peeves. Totally recommend!!!

The prequel to The O'Malley Chronicles is suspenseful and hard to put down. It kept me interested from the first page to the last. Dave's sister Sarah has been hiding from her childhood kidnapper for most of her life. When she meets Adam Black, a famous football player, and starts falling for him, it puts her security at risk.

If you think this is a "whimpback" christian book, think again! This book is full of suspense and romance and christian principles. I loved it! A must read! I am ready to complete the whole series now! I'm very surprised the author didn't call this book #1 in the O'Malley series. It sets the foundation for the rest of the books in the O'Malley series for sure!

Loved this book. Loving the O'Malley series. Love how the characters grow in each book. I got the 3rd book in the series (Negotiator) first, but wasn't feeling left out. It just made me want to read the first one even more.
Would highly recommend. My 16 year old daughter is reading it now. Haven't read much Christian romance books. Now I'm hooked.

I enjoy reading all of Dee Henderson's books. She is a top flight Contemporary Christian author. Dager in the Shadows incorporates a good adventure/mystery with a fast page turning plot and a developing relationship that is prominent in most of her books. I enjoy the spiritual development of the characters.

I just finished reading four Ted Bell novels and thought, 'wow, it is going to be tough to top these.' I love suspense and strong character lines. I began with this book as well as the second book in this series, The Negotiator. I read both of them within a week. They were wonderful reads. I was never bored! This book has a great deal of excitement and an entire spectrum of emotions. You fall in love with the characters right away and Dee Henderson is great at taking you through the decision/thought processes with her characters. You want to cry with them, cheer them on, and can't wait to get back to reading so you can be part of their world. Her writing is gentle and yet suspensful. There is no room for 'fluff,' just great story-line. This particular book is heart-wrenching and wonderful. I found myself crying with Sara and hoping with her for her future. I watched for clues to the mystery surrounding her life... I ached with her for a sense of normalcy in her life. Through each twist and danger... Fear and hope... betrayal and romance... I found I couldn't put this book down. The characters have a strong faith, that is tested, in a God who loves them through it all. This would be an excellent book for a teenager as well as adults since there is no graphic content. The subject matter is heavy, though. Some of the downfalls: We never got to see inside the head of the kidnapper. There was nothing about him at all until the last paragraph. Also, it ended way too quickly as far as the kidnapper and Sara meeting. Another thing that doesn't bother me, but I know some people don't appreciate it, but it was a little unrealistic in how rich they were and how much of the FBI was surrounding her at all times. I liked it. I find it fun to live a fantasy life like that as I read. It is, after all, 'fiction.' Read the synopsis above to see the details of the story. I highly recommend Dee Henderson. Now I need to go start book #3 - The Guardian!

This book had a suspenseful plot and written well-enough to keep Christian Romantic Suspense readers entertained.

Having read a another book written by this author, I've come to the same conclusion for my reading taste: there's just not enough depth to the characters or setting to really want me to invest my time. Two authors that came through for me are: Hannah Alexander and Colleen Coble.
