It has been three years since Kate Marshall lost her husband John and four-year-old son Kevin to a boating accident while father and son were fishing in Braddock Bay. Kate is now living in St. Louis and shopping at the mall when she sees a little boy who looks like her son Kevin and cannot shake drudging up the past traumatic event. Believing there is a chance that Kevin is not dead, Kate hire private investigator Connor Sullivan to either confirm or dispel her suspicions regarding Kevin.
Greg Sanders worries when his son Todd has many questions about the woman in the mall and the encounter Todd had with her calling him Kevin. Greg does not need the Marshall woman looking for him because he has secrets that are in the best interest of him to keep private.
Connor Sullivan is an ex Secret Service Agent turned private investigator along with his partners Dev and Cal who consider. Connor is excellent at his job as a private investigator and suppresses feelings he has for Kate while investigating the deaths of her husband and son that is possibly murder instead of an accident.
Deceived is volume 3 in the Private Justice series that proves worthy of being a good mystery suspense novel for book sleuths. The theme is plausible and entertaining taking the reader on a mysterious journey collecting and examining clues relative to the case. I recommend to readers of mystery, suspense, and crime drama genres who love wearing the amateur sleuth hat.
I received this book free from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines.
