—Book #2 in the series, THE CRIME FILES OF KATY GREEN

Samuel Kubiak has severe issues. A distraught survivor of the California Foster Care System, he suffers from a condition of alopecia, incessant bullying, and a bizarre sexual frustration… But just as life seems its worst, he’s visited by a dark guardian angel: One who whispers into his ear that by walking in His shadow, Samuel can avenge himself on all who have wronged him.

And so do a string of grisly murders begin to emerge across Sacramento, victims whose killer seems to have emerged from nowhere and left without leaving any clue.

Assigned to the gruesome case are homicide detectives Katy Green and Johnny Cato, dubbed by the press as Sacramento’s “Green Hornet and Cato.” There hasn’t been a case yet they haven’t solved, but now how can they track down a psychopathic suspect that comes and goes in the shadows?

  Very seldom can an author successfully pen a dark mystery novel while showing so many of his cards yet leaving a great deal to the imagination. But that’s exactly Gene O’Neill’s style in SHADOW OF THE DARK ANGEL.   Dark Scribe Magazine  
  Likened to Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lector books—Katy Green and John Cato are a team of detectives hunting a sexual serial killer.... filled with explicitly fleshed out characters.   Monster Librarian
