I loved Shadow in the Sandpit. The hero of the book is Bradley Whitman, an FBI analyst. His legs have been paralyzed since he was six years old but though he is wheelchair-bound, he manages to get around, solve crimes, and get himself into a lot of dangerous situations. His FBI boss and lifelong friend Derek Richards has a hard time trying to keep him alive and safe. When he is about to be shot in an alley, a Doberman flies out of the air from nowhere and saves Bradley. Bradley immediately bonds with Rusty, his new and faithful pet and companion. When there is a murder of a homeless woman behind Bradley’s home, in the sandpit where the homeless are set up, he meets Zayt who will quickly become a great friend and protector. Bradley is working on gathering information for several different cases--a murder, a money-laundering situation, and a land-buying scheme to open a casino--and finds that they are all really one case linked together. Bradley will not stop until he finds the answers, even if it means a stay in the hospital and a six-month suspension from his job to solve the crime.
Shadow in the Sandpit has all the elements for a great crime and mystery novel. Plot twists and turns make it impossible to figure out who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. It was hard to put the book down and not stay up late into the night reading. Christine Noyes has created Bradley Whitman, a man impossible not to like, with a strong and powerful personality, along with a host of other characters who complement each other perfectly. If you like a strong leading man, a crime that will pull you in from the first page to the last, and a plot with twists, turns, excitement, danger, and more, then Shadow in the Sandpit should be immediately placed on the very top of your reading list.
