Adam Shaw

Adam Shaw lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife and daughter. The Jackals is his first novel.


The Jackals

The Jackals opens four years after Jack Dotson slept with his best friend Mark’s girlfriend, quit his up-and-coming band, and, embarrassed and ashamed, skipped town to start over. When Jack finds out that Mark has unexpectedly died, though, he steps away from the new life he’s created to return to his sleepy, Midwestern hometown to attend the funeral and make amends with the friends he left behind. Despite Jack’s good intentions, he quickly finds himself unwelcome as fists start flying, old love interests reignite, and his carefully curated life starts slipping through his fingertips.
