Casey adores her older, beautiful cousin and offers her a home in their pub, The Britannia, when Eva's father and stepmother are killed by a gas explosion. Everyone falls for Eva's vivacious charm even Casey's surly, widowed father Joe, who had resented providing a home for her. But Joe 'Strongarm' Strong is a man with a dark secret and Eva is not the innocent victim she at first appears.
When Joe dies in mysterious circumstances, the shadows of the past cast a sinister veil over the future of the two cousins, and Casey gradually realises that Eva's possessiveness threatens the lives of those she holds most dear...
Fateful Shadows is a compelling novel of dark secrets, passion and loyalty overcoming persecution and social prejudice - and an obsessive love which leads to tragedy.
