Reviews

In The Shepherd Ethan Cross manages to pull a new variant out of the black hat in Francis Ackerman ... a manipulative monster with a corrupt conscience * The Times * A great mix of gruesome murders, a psychotic killer, revenge and great writing... I would recommend this book and make Cross an author to watch in future. * Crimesquad * A rather unusual talent has suddenly appeared, fully formed ... however many chapters you may plan to read, you will be persuaded to read just one more. The 300 pages turn very swiftly indeed. -- Barry Forshaw * We Love This Book * A fast paced, all too real thriller, with a villain right out of James Patterson and 'Criminal Minds'. * Andrew Gross * Silence of the Lambs meets The Bourne Identity. * Brian S. Wheeler *


About the Author

Ethan Cross was born and raised in a small town in rural Illinois. When a fireman or a policeman would visit his school, most of his classmates' heads would swim with aspirations of growing up and catching bad guys or saving someone from a blazing inferno. When these moments came for Ethan , however, his dreams weren't to someday be a cop or put out fires; he just wanted to write about it. Now his dream of telling stories on a grand scale has come to fruition with the release of his new thriller, The Shepherd. Ethan Cross still lives in Illinois with his wife and two daughters. The Shepherd is his first novel.
