When his testimony results in the collapse of an illegal Dream Morphine racket, Shadow is thrown into a strange new world with dangers that he can barely begin to fathom. As he becomes more deeply involved in the world of the Talented, he must live with dark secrets and face constant dangers to prevent his family from paying the ultimate price for his success. A price someone now seems intent on making them pay...

Tommy Muncie has wanted to be so many things that he's lost count, but still ended up writing about all of them. He creates future worlds and watches his characters destroy themselves as they follow their hopes and dreams from Earth to space and back. And just sometimes, they're allowed moments of triumph. Tommy's ambitions through his twenties took him through more jobs than most sane people will admit to, and he settled for none of them until becoming a writer and a countryside ranger. Shadow's Talent is his début novel and book one of The Talent Show series, four years in the making, and completed while doing volunteer work for the National Trust. Tommy's 'real world' career has taken him from the slopes of Somerset to the south coasts, and he hopes for a long lifetime of outdoor graft and voracious typing combined. Shadow is the daredevil the author wishes he could be. Or perhaps sometimes is. A member of the Litreactor online writing community, Tommy is known for his workshop and competition critiquing. He lives on the south coast of England with his family and loves distance running, rock music and reading other indie authors.
