About this ebook

From New York Times bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the first in a new thriller series.

Everyone wondered about Shaye Archer’s past. Including Shaye.

 Shaye Archer’s life effectively began the night police found her in an alley, beaten and abused and with no memory of the previous fifteen years, not even her name. Nine years later, she’s a licensed private investigator, with a single goal—to get answers for her clients when there aren’t supposed to be any.

And maybe someday, answers for herself.

Emma Frederick thought her nightmare was over when she killed her abusive husband, but someone is stalking her and tormenting her with mementos from her past. With no evidence to support her claims, the police dismiss her claims as post-traumatic stress, but Shaye is convinced that someone is deliberately terrorizing Emma…playing a cat and mouse game with only one goal in mind.

To kill Emma. 

MALEVOLENT is the first book in a new psychological thriller series by bestselling author Jana DeLeon. The series features a young female private investigator and will appeal to fans of T.R. Ragan and Anne Frasier.

Always tell people reading eBook is not fun! Boy was I wrong. This book changed my mind. Kept me wondering who was the murderer and I just can't stop reading this book even when I was supposed to be sleeping! Will definitely download the rest of the books by this author.

Wonderful read. I couldn't put it down. This book has twist & turns you could never even begin to figure out. Just when you keep thinking you positively know what's coming next, the rug gets pulled right out from in under you and you never even knew what hit you. Mysteries like theses are rare finds because many of them become predictable especially if the author has written more than a couple of books but this story kept me on the edge of my seat the entire way and it was great!!!
