With breathtaking reach and bewildering influence, is it possible an unseen and elusive Shadow can pull strings to manipulate people, companies, criminal organizations and governments?
Sheri Hoyt for Reader Views: "I highly recommend all of Gary D. McGugan's books. Though all the stories stand nicely on their own, please do yourself a favor and start at the beginning. The road from the first novel, "Three Weeks Less a Day" to his latest release, "A Slippery Shadow" is an incredible journey. If you like stories involving world travel, corporate intrigue, organized crime, politics, and real-world issues with amazing characters, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more captivating set of stories."
Amy Lignor for Feathered Quill says: "This rich, vibrant tale offers all a reader could possibly want, and more, from an edge-of-your-seat thriller!"

Natalie Soine for Readers Favorite: "What an incredible story. Exciting, suspenseful, and thought-provoking, A Slippery Shadow by Gary D. McGugan is one of the best stories I have ever read."
Tammy Ruggles for Reader Views: "As you read, you feel that you are in good hands with McGugan and get the idea he really loves writing this kind of novel. The dialogue moves the novel along at an even, enjoyable pace, and you never feel bogged down or confused, just mystified in all the right places. McGugan's efficient, sparse style feeds well into the tense scenes and conversations. At times, you wonder what's really going on, but you're never really confused. Instead, you are as caught up in the intrigue as the characters are."
