Daniels' superbly entertaining procedural... lifts itself into a special place among psychological thrillers because of its evocative writing." - Booklist starred review"The story's execution is smooth... Daniels provides a killer with a believable back story and motive, bringing the mystery to a satisfying conclusion." - Kirkus Reviews "Stunning psychological thriller... Engrossing twists, a smooth writing voice and a villain evil enough to make Hannibal Lecter consider retirement." - RT Book Reviews, Top Pick"An absolutely absorbing novel from first page to last, Once Shadows Fall showcases author Robert Daniel's complete mastery of the mystery thriller genre." - Midwest Book Review "A first novel that has the makings of a solid series... The denouement is somewhat like watching a Grucci fireworks spectacular, where the audience is wondering how he can top this. And as with fireworks, the buildup is spectacular." - Bookreporter "You're in for a real treat. What a novel! It takes your breath away and doesn't come back until the book (or case) is closed... If this is his first novel, what is he going to write for the encore?! Dynamic action and suspense collide with intellect in this psychological thriller." - Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick'Darkly intriguing and full of unexpected twists, Once Shadows Fall is a psychological cat-and-mouse game that's both intense and emotionally resonant.' - Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award winning author" Once Shadows Fall is a complex and well-written thriller with plenty of suspense and lots of action. An impressive debut." - Thomas Perry, New York Times bestselling author of Forty Thieves 'Robert Daniels is the new Thomas Harris. With a villain that is as sinister, creepy, and fascinating as he is compelling. A wonderful new talent has arrived, fully formed. This is the future of the thriller.' - Ken Bruen, awarding winning author of Green Hell "
