Summary

Summary

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.

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

Booklist Review

Claire Marshall gave up the dream of family when her husband and son perished in a boating accident. Although her son's body was never found, she made her peace and moved on. But all that changed after a visit to the mall, where she swore she saw her son alive and well. Determined to follow this shred of hope, Claire hires hunky but troubled PI Connor Sullivan to follow the case to its end. As the puzzle pieces start to snap together, so do the hearts of Claire and Connor. Hannon's (One Perfect Spring, 2014) latest romantic suspense tale is a story of hope, desperation, love, and redemption that will have readers eagerly turning each page. Claire is a refreshingly strong heroine, sure in her convictions and steadfast even in the face of tragedy. Her romance with Connor is a true matching of equals as they share their pasts and face troubling present circumstances relying on each other for support. Hannon delivers a romance deepened by the inspirational theme of making the most of any situation.--Richard, Carolyn Copyright 2014 Booklist


Library Journal Review

In this third entry in the "Private Justice" series (after Vanished and Trapped), Claire Marshall is still grieving the loss of her husband and toddler killed in a boating accident when she sees a boy at the mall who resembles the son she lost. Convinced that her son is still alive, Claire hires a private investigator to help her find out the truth. But those who know what happened will keep it hidden at any cost, including murder. VERDICT A riveting narrative arc with multiple plot twists and turns give fans of RITA Award winner and Christy Award finalist Hannon more of what they expect from her high-octane stories of suspense. Newcomers will rush through the mind-bending tale and delight in the lushly developed characters and striking scenes. For fans of Ted Dekker and Dan Walsh. (c) Copyright 2014.
