Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Only two people know Lamont Cranston's secret identity as the Shadow, a vigilante of justice: his greatest love, Margo Lane, and his fiercest enemy, Shiwan Khan. Then Khan ambushes the couple, who find the slimmest chance of survival...in the uncertain future.

A century and a half later, Lamont awakens in a world both unknown and strangely familiar. The first person he meets is Maddy Gomes, a teenager with her own mysterious secrets, including a more than passing awareness of the legend of the Shadow.

Most disturbing, Khan's power continues to be felt over New York and its people. No one in this new world understands the dangers of stopping him better than Lamont Cranston. He also knows he's the only one who stands a chance. Lamont must prove that the Shadow is more than just a legend.

How to butcher a beloved character

I've been a fan of the shadow ever since I was a kid but this was not it. I would have liked it if they brought his character to 2021 and then modernised it slightly for a new audience but taking him into a dystopian future with very little of his originality left, makes you wonder why call this the shadow at all? You might as well create a brand new character if he is going to be this different from the original. The story also does not explain his powers very well or the history so those new to the shadow get little or no background at all. This could have been a great new modernisation of an old classic but it feels nothing more than a cheap distopian novel which itself wasn't even that great of a story. I'd recommend checking out the 1992 the shadow movie though which was one of my favourites growing up.
