The secret side of domestic violence

Canadian Author Tackles the Verboten

New thriller explores the secret side of domestic violence

ST. PAUL, AB, March 22, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SHADOW RIDERS, a brand new thriller by Canadian author, Eileen Schuh, does not shy away from the disturbing issues of domestic violence and the incomprehensible emotional bonding that ties abused to abuser.

Dramatized for exceptionally enjoyable reading, one almost can't help falling in love right alongside Allison Montgomery with her violent, vulnerable and mesmerizing captor.

At book's end, after all the psychological counseling we receive along with Allie, we know for sure one shouldn't stay with an abusive partner, and yet....

From the moment Allie falls in love with the 'bad boy', the very core of her being is forever changed.

Allison Montgomery is wrapping up a career as a successful entrepreneur when she's brutally kidnapped and whisked to South Korea. To ensure her survival, she gradually forges a bond with Carbon, her smooth-talking but abusive captor, a bond that over time proves incredibly strong.

A criminal record, death threats, counseling--nothing can convince Allie to betray her illicit lover.

However, a team of dedicated cops, an understanding lawyer, her ex-husband-- there are those who persist in believing she can break free of Carbon's hold.

She must. Justice for six massacred men depends on it.

- An exploration of the emotional ties that trap women in violent relationships. -

A discussion section at the back of the book for use by Book Clubs, delves into a variety of social issues addressed in the novel, such as international drug trafficking, gangs, our justice system, societal views on love, and readers' views about domestic violence.
