Published by Mundania Press Cincinnati Ohio, Rolling Seas Reviews had this to say about “A Cry of Shadows” by Max Overton: “A Not to be read at night time chiller thriller! Dr. Ian Delaney is an eccentric scientist. His field of research is death—to be precise—the moment of death when life-force leaves a body. Loretta Picket is murdered and Lieutenant Detective Barnes is assigned the case. Wayne Richardson, cruel and calculating, is dumped by his girlfriend—now any girl who resembles Charlene is in danger of being brutally murdered. In the basement laboratory at the Jameson House, acts of screaming violence are unleashed through experiments. Detective Barnes calls in Arlith Fisher, a psychic, to help track down the murderer and locate the missing victims. Barnes hovers between life and death before this nightmare ends. This story is definitely not for the faint hearted!”
