In The Shepherd, Ethan Cross introduces us to Marcus Williams and Francis Ackerman Jr, thus setting the leading characters and premises for the Shepherd Thriller series. Both men have killed. While Marcus is filled with remorse for the death he caused, Francis takes pleasure from the serial killings. Both men wonder if there is redemption and question their destiny. They each see themselves as monsters. They both want to be loved.

This story is very well written. As Marcus’ and Francis’ characters are developed, we glimpse into their souls and see their torment. Are these characters all that much different or just two sides of one coin destined to play the game until one succumbs?

I had not anticipated the twist at the end. I hope you are as surprised as I.

I recommend this book for all who enjoy thrillers and conspiracies mixed in with philosophical questions of good vs. evil.
