Book Review: Deceived

Cover Art

From the Back:

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.

My Reflections:

In perfect Hannon form this book starts fast and finishes strong. Hannon is one of my top rated authors, her work is always compelling and her characters never fail to engage. This plot with it's twists and turns will most definitely give your fingers a workout, and your mind will be transfixed to this superb mystery!

Kate Marshall has been tested to the max, three long years ago her life had jumped the rail. Going from a loving wife and mother to a grieving woman alone in the world has been one of the hardest hurdles she has ever had to face. After an apparent accident which took the life of her husband and presumably her son as well Kate tries, to move past her trauma. She dose the best she can until one fateful moment when she thinks she spots and hears the voice of her long lost son. Has God answered her earnest longings, could this truly be her flesh and blood?

Connor Sullivan a private detective takes Kate Marshalls case, even though he is pretty sure things will not have a favorable ending. As the two work closely on the case they develop a bond, one that sparks more than clues to the mystery surrounding the identity of the little blond boy. Will Kate still be interested in spending time together even if this boy is not her son?

This is book three in the Private Justice series, but I feel it is just as good as a stand alone. I have read all of the books in this series, and of course would recommend you do the same, pick up book one and start from there, I know you will not be sorry you did.

 Hannon has done a marvelous job with this romantic suspense. She has such a unique way of weaving fiction with reality, the reader truly forgets they are merely turning pages, and are transported into a world of suspense and drama. Great work Hannon! I can't wait for this authors brand new series, Men of Valor to be released in the spring of 2015
