A novel by Kurtis Davidson.

What happens when America's greatest author dies before delivering the long-awaited sequel to the greatest novel of the 20th century? His young editor is left racing to find the missing manuscript before a rogue's gallery of opportunists can exploit it for their own devious purposes. That's the premise of Kurtis Davidson's hilarious new novel, What the Shadow Told Me. This engaging look into the world of publishing and literature is intriguingly suspenseful, outrageously humorous, and universally accessible.
