Deceived ~ Review

Deceived
Private Justice #3
By Irene Hannon

Three years ago Kate Marshall lost her husband in a boating accident and her young son's body was never found.  Rebuilding her life has brought Kate to St. Louis.  When a chance encounter in a mall makes her doubt her son's assumed death, Kate has no where to turn except Phoenix Inc.

But can these investigators prove whether or not that a glimpse of a child seen at a St. Louis mall is the son Kate thought she had lost in New York?  Kate needs answers and Connor Sullivan is determined to help her find them.

First up finding proof that the child Kate thought she had glimpsed is not just a figment of her imagination...

Deceived is the final book in Irene Hannon's Private Justice series and Connor Sullivan is the Phoenix investigator who takes center stage in this book.  And of course being a character of interest means its time for Connor to take an interest in a client who once the case is resolved may just be more than a former client.

Cases have a way of taking a dangerous turn and Deceived is right on track if you like your books with a dash of danger mixed with a touch of romance.  Irene's characters make you care about them and they aren't perfect.  They are flawed and know it and they are determined to work through these flaws.

This is a great escape book if you just want to take a break from the day-to-day stresses of work or if you just want a relaxing book to read over your week-end.  There is nothing quite like a suspense over the week-end to keep you up late into the night.   As an added bonus there is a sneak peek at Irene's new upcoming series Men of Valor ~ Buried Secrets.

I was provided a copy of this book through Revell's blogger program in exchange for my honest 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.
