But when Christine hears that her stepbrother has been arrested for murder in Texas, they team up again to discover the truth about the crime. Untangling a web of conspiracy, the couple finds themselves in the center of another dangerous situationand in trouble far deeper than they expected.

A thrilling sequel to A Cross to Kill, Cross Shadow proves to be just as addicting to read.

Life has not been a simple happily-ever-after for ex-CIA assassin turned small-town pastor John Cross and journalist Christine Lewis since the events of the previous book, sparking questions of the practicality of their relationship. Of course, to complicate matters, the pair quickly becomes pulled into another dangerous scenario, and their story takes off from there.

Once again, Andrew Huff composes his Shepherd Suspense novel well. Cross Shadow is action-packed, fast-paced suspense that kept me on my toes, but that suspense blends well with questions of faith and romance, making for a well-rounded, interesting read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Huff spent ten years in local church ministry as a youth pastor and creative arts pastor before pursuing God’s calling into creative storytelling and media production as the product director at Igniter Media, a church media company (ignitermedia.com). 

He is a two-time finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) Genesis Contest for unpublished authors (2014, 2017) and also won the best screenplay award at the 2015 48 Hour Film Festival in Richmond, VA. A Cross to Kill and Cross Shadow in the Shepherd Suspense series are his first releases.

Huff holds a bachelor of science in religion degree from Liberty University and a master of arts in Christian education from Dallas Theological Seminary. He resides in Plano, TX, with his beautiful wife, Jae, and their two boys.
