Publisher's Summary

Brill Jessup just became the first female police chief in Sophie Trace, Tennessee, and is riding on the credentials of a stellar 18-year career on the Memphis police force. She may be a pro at finding clues, but she tends to ignore the obvious in her personal life. Her husband, Kurt, is weighed down by her unrelenting anger as he struggles to let God redeem the stupidest mistake he ever made.

Brill hides behind her badge and her bitterness, deciding that moving her family away from Memphis is the only change she needs to make. Before she even has time to unpack her boxes, people start disappearing. Lots of them. To complicate matters, a local legend has many residents believing that the cause is unearthly - tied to the red shadows - or spirits of the departed Cherokee who once inhabited the land.

While Brill draws on all of her experience and instinct to solve the case, she must confront an enemy that threatens everything she holds dear, one that cannot be stopped with a badge and a gun.

Glad it's a Series!

I enjoyed this book. The author gets you feeling for the characters and rooting for them. The story keeps your interest. I loved it how the husband puts his trust in God. This story is suspenseful, and the mystery is well written. I'm certainly going to listen to the next one!

Good buy!

If you could sum up The Real Enemy in three words, what would they be?

Kept my attention...

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Not a edge of the seat book, but still worth the read.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Suppose one person was doing all the narration, but it sounded like several and was exceptional. The only downside was the sherriff, I believe Sam was his name, sounded like Barney Fife. That threw me a little bit, but was overall very enjoyable!

Horrible

This book is very poorly narrated, I can’t even listen to it and trying to exchange it.

What an Imaginable Plot! Couldn’t put it down!

The author wrote a first-rate novel with twists and turns to the very end. I could not put this one down! The narrator was first-rate, too. Highly recommend!

Kept me guessing...

The Real Enemy kept me guessing the whole time. Plenty of suspense, mystery, romance, drama, murder, love and drama and still a redeeming story.
