Deceived...Review

About the book:
A grieving mother. A mysterious child. And a dedicated PI who's determined to solve the puzzle.

For three years, Kate Marshall has been mourning the loss of her husband and four-year-old son in a boating accident. But when she spots a familiar-looking child on a mall escalator, she's convinced it's her son. With police skeptical of her story, she turns to private investigator Connor Sullivan for help. As the former Secret Service agent digs into the case, the boating "accident" begins to look increasingly suspicious. But if Kate's son is alive, someone is intent on keeping him hidden--and may go to lethal lengths to protect a sinister secret.

As Irene Hannon's many fans have come to expect, Deceived is filled with complex characters, unexpected twists, and a riveting plotline that accelerates to an explosive finish.

After her husband and son are presumed dead in a boating accident, Kate tries to move on with her life. Three years later, a chance encounter at a mall convinces Kate that her son is still alive. Never feeling like the police listened to her when the accident first happened, she can't go to them now. Instead, she turns to a private investigator who believes her story. As Kate and Connor delve more deeply into the case, they find more questions, discover answers and soon realize that there are dangers at play.

It's no secret that I love Irene Hannon's books and I think Deceived is my favorite. I love that Irene's books are thrilling and compelling without gratuitous violence or language. I always enjoy her characterizations and Kate and Connor were fantastic. I loved their interactions and repartee. The insights into the law enforcement world are fascinating and well researched. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.

Part of the Private Justice series, the story stands alone just fine, but as past characters return, having read the stories in order just enhances the richness of the storytelling.

Thanks to Lanette with Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book. You can learn more about Irene Hannon here. You can purchase your own copy here.
