'I've just read The Company of Shadows by Ruth Newman and totally loved it - even more than Twisted Wing which I loved as well. She does sinister and twisty like no one else can!'
About the Author
In her early thirties, Ruth Newman lives in Cambridge where she works as a Web editor for the University Business School. TWISTED WING is her first novel.

The Company of Shadows is a great disappointment. It started well but rapidly turned into a preposterous "James Bond meets the Sopranos"-style tale - liberally peppered with chick-lit type references. And it seemed quite clumsily-written to me.
Hopefully Ruth Newman will be back on form with her next novel.
Meanwhile I advise buying the complete Sopranos boxed set on DVD if organised crime is your thing.
Totally implausible, and long winded in the extreme. I have actually given up on it 2/3 of the way through when the storyline took a turn that was totally unreasonable and almost laughable. I wasn't very taken with the characters, so got to a stage of not caring what happened anyway .... now I will never know! :-)
This is my first foray into the world of Ruth Newman, and I doubt that I will venture there again.
I was also irritated by the grammatical errors .... 'Off of' and 'Sat' instead of 'Sitting'
Whilst her friends say they can see a likeness they say it cannot be him, but Kate is certain it is and is ready to fly out that night. Her friends urge caution and eventually Charlie's best friend Luke agrees to accompany her to Miami.
Despite being constantly told it could not possibly be him, Kate is determined to track down the man in that photograph. As she follows the trail she begins to question the circumstances of her husband's death, and also the people she trusts, or can she trust them?
This is one of those books you cannot put down. A fascinating mystery. Highly recommended.
I couldn't put this book down, Ruth Newman is a very talented writer. I would def recommend this book. I have given it 4 stars as although it is a great book which I really enjoyed, it wasn't quite as good as twisted wing. But still brilliant and very easy to read. Characters were great. I dont want to write too much without ruining it.
