Why you must read Kristine Mason’s Core Shadow trilogy
CORE (Criminal Observance Resolution Evidence) is a private criminal investigation agency created by a former FBI profiler. The agents who work for CORE all have varying backgrounds–FBI, CIA, U.S. Secret Service and military.
CORE Shadow Trilogy is a bundle of the first three books in my CORE series.
Take us through it book by book.
SHADOW OF PERCEPTION: Book 2 of the CORE Shadow Trilogy What happens when negligent plastic surgeons get a taste of their own medicine…?
When investigative reporter Eden Risk receives an unmarked envelope containing a postcard ordering her to watch the enclosed DVD or someone else dies, she turns to CORE for help. But that help comes with a catch. Her former lover Hudson Patterson is assigned to the case. And as more DVDs arrive, they not only find themselves knee-deep in a twisted investigation, but forced to deal with their past and the love they’d tried to deny.
SHADOW OF VENGEANCE: Book 3 of the CORE Shadow Trilogy Welcome to Hell Week. You have seven days to find him…
At Wexman University male students will do anything to join a top fraternity. They’ll prove their worth during Hell Week by participating in a variety of pranks. But those shenanigans aren’t so funny when pledges start disappearing. CORE agents Rachel Davis and Owen Malcolm are on the hunt for a killer who’s kidnapping and murdering pledges. Time is ticking. They have only seven days to find the latest missing pledge and catch a killer. Seven days before the body count rises with another victim. Seven days to fight their attraction for each other before one of them ends up hurt.

Complete this sentence for us: if you like _________________, you’ll love the Core Shadow trilogy.
I’ve never watched the show, but I’ve had several readers comment that my books remind them of the show. I’m going to have to add it to my DVR!
It’s a great show.
Shadow of Danger: Celeste is a psychic who is having visions of women being murdered. John is former FBI turned CORE agent. He’s all about science and evidence and wants nothing to do with psychic premonitions.

She has a lot of trust issues and when she’s forced to turn to her ex, Hudson, for help, she’s also forced to deal with those issues. After spending years with the CIA, Hudson now works for CORE. He’s tried to forget about Eden, but now that they’re working together, all bets are off.
