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

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

Share 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.

    Scary story. Read the book in 2 days. A lot of psychology throughout to analyze. Sad to think some people’s lives had this much hurt in them.

    What would you do if you were being stalked by your dead husband and no one believed you? Call Shaye Archer a young and bright private investigator who is probably the only person who could understand the evil you truly face. Malevolent is a great thriller that I just couldn’t put down. From the first chapter till the very end it had me wondering who the killer truly was. Loved this story and can’t wait to read more about Shaye Archer
  • Many twists and turns. Surprising ending!!!!
