Deceived Book Review

 About the Book

For three years, Kate Marshall has been grieving the loss of her husband and their four-year-old son in a boating accident. But when she spots a familiar-looking child on an escalator in the mall, she is convinced it is the son she thought was dead. With police skeptical of her story, she turns to private investigator Connor Sullivan. The former Secret Service agent is dubious but agrees to investigate. Digging into the case he discovers that the incident may have been no accident at all. But if Kate's son is alive, someone is intent on keeping him hidden--and may be willing to go to lethal lengths to protect a sinister secret.

My Review

 Irene Hannon is a great author and she really knows how to create an intense story line. I have read the other books in this series, and they can all be read separately. But I do highly recommend them all! 
This book takes us into the world of Kate who has been left a widow and left with a  mystery of her missing son. I can't imagine what it would be like but she has moved on, until she sees a little boy at the mall. 
The main thing I noticed with this book is the crazy killer is not unrealistic, I can see how this could really happen. I really enjoyed reading about Connor and I thought his character was strong, while still not being over the top. I really couldn't put this book down as it's pure suspense with a tad bit of romance. The romance is typical and not surprising but I was focused on the puzzle anyway. 
I was left hanging until the end. I knew the killer, and I knew where, but the why kept me totally confused.
 Hannon has some great twists and for suspense lovers, this book is a must read!!

"I received this book from Revell for free in exchange for an honest review."
