The odd, vaguely menacing little man called Mr. Logo is a familiar figure in the old court building in London. Although frequently brought before the judge for indecent assault, he is invariably acquitted due to lack of evidence. He is especially familiar to Helen West, the take-no-prisoners lawyer who has just failed for the fifth time to prosecute him. Now he is off-limits to her until his next appearance in court. Yet, when she befriends Rose, the young, compulsively secretive and promiscuous clerk in the office, Helen unwittingly sets in motion events that will dangerously complicate her connection to Mr. Logo and push his rage and dark passion to lethal extremes.
My Review: I had no Idea what I was in for when I sat down to read Shadow play. This is a total and complete psychological thriller that will leave with your mouth agape. As the story begins you meet Mr. Logo and I wasn't sure what to make of this character at first trying to decide if he was guilty of the crimes he had supposedly committed or if he was just a guy slightly off his rocker. Helen West is the attorney who is positive he is guilty she just can't seem to find the right evidence to prove it. She is out for blood Helen makes it her mission to find out what it is exactly Mr. Logo is hiding at any cost. As she is sure he is hiding something very dark and sinister. As Helen sets out to find the truth she befriends Rose a clerk of the court and together set out together to find the evidence Helen needs to put Mr. Logo away for a very long time! They are in for one very sick and twisted tale that will leave them in a position that could have them begging for their lives. 
What a twisted and thrill provoking story Shadow play is. I was so sure I knew the answer to it all only to be turned in a whole other direction. This book brought out emotion in me I didn't eve know I had. Shadow play is not a book for the faint of heart. I would not recommend this book to anyone under the age of 18 just for the sheer crimes that do take place. I was left feeling raw and bare all at the same time yet I knew I wanted to read more! Francis Fyfield did an excellent job in writing such a complete mess with your thought process kind of  story. I would recommend her books to anyone.

About the Author
I grew up in rural Derbyshire, but my adult life has been spent mostly in London, with long intervals in Norfolk and Deal, all inspiring places. I was educated mostly in convent schools; then studied English and went on to qualify as a solicitor, working for what is now the Crown Prosecution Service, thus learning a bit about murder at second hand.  Years later, writing became the real vocation, although the law and its ramifications still haunt me and inform many of my novels.
I’m a novelist, short story writer for magazines and radio, sometime Radio 4 contributor, (Front Row, Quote Unquote, Night Waves,) and presenter of Tales from the Stave.  When I’m not working (which is as often as possible), I can be found in the nearest junk/charity shop or auction, looking for the kind of paintings which enhance my life.  Otherwise, with a bit of luck, I’m relaxing by the sea with a bottle of wine and a friend or two.
