From the #1 bestselling author of Fifty Years of Fear, SHADOWS OF REGRET is the unforgettable story of a woman’s struggle to rejoin society.
Katie committed a terrible crime. Sixteen years was the price she had to pay.
Once released from prison, she finds the world has changed.
Isolated and alone, she struggles to make sense of her new life. Starting again isn’t easy, especially after what she’s done.
Despite not feeling free or safe, Katie overcomes her fears and confronts the future. But history won’t remain forgotten.
Gradually, memories of the past are revealed. When Katie finally exposes the awful truth and sees there are others who share the blame, she must choose her path.
Will she seek redemption, or will she take revenge?
We first meet Katie on the day that she is released after serving sixteen years in prison. The story then flicks between present day with Katie trying to start over again and the past to what her childhood was like.
Obviously I was dying to know just what she had done to deserve so long in prison. The author isn’t in a rush to tell us though, adding to the build up of suspense and intrigue.
I really liked Katie, though prison has certainly hardened her some what. Even so, she wants a fresh start but events from her past are holding her back. We get to meet a few women who are in a similar position and all their back stories were interesting as well as seeing how they all deal with being released differently.
I don’t want to say too much about the story itself but Katie’s somewhat new found freedom, is far from straight forward. Her past had me totally mesmerised and had me feeling an array of emotions.
Shadows Of Regret is hands down the authors best book yet. I read it in one sitting as I was so engrossed in Katie’s story. It’s a mix of crime, drama and suspense. A dark and intense read you won’t be able to put down.

Ross Greenwood was born in 1973 in Peterborough and lived there until he was 20, attending The King’s School in the city. He then began a rather nomadic existence, living and working all over the country and various parts of the world.
Ross found himself returning to Peterborough many times over the years, usually, so he says “when things had gone wrong.” It was on one of these occasions that he met his partner about 100 metres from his back door whilst walking a dog. Two children swiftly followed. And, according to Ross, he is “still a little stunned by the pace of it now.”
Lazy Blood book was started a long time ago but parenthood and then four years as a prison officer got in the way. Ironically it was the four a.m. feed which gave the author the opportunity to finish the book as unable to get back to sleep he completed it in the early morning hours.
Ross Greenwood’s second book, The Boy Inside, was picked up by Bloodhound Books, and in September 2017, Fifty Years of Fear was published. The year 2018 saw the publication of his next psychological thriller, Abel’s Revenge. All his books are thought provoking, and told with a sense of humour.
Ross Greenwood hopes you enjoy reading them.
