Deceived by Irene Hannon

Back Cover: 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 sceptical 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, Deceive is filled with complex characters, unexpected twists, and a riveting plot line that accelerates to an explosive finish.

Review: When I pick up a new book by Irene Hannon, I have just come to expect that it will be incredible. The characters will be realistic and complex, the plot will be borderline-brilliant, the writing excellent, and that I will end up chewing my nails off at some point during the story. There are not many authors that I would stand in a lineup to get their books, but I would for Irene Hannon. I hope she writes MANY more books because she is a very gifted woman. I own every book she's written. So, with no further bragging, let's get into the book.

Deceived is a little different than her usual books. In the beginning, I honestly thought there was something a little wrong with Kate. Seriously….her kid was dead….why is she freaking out over some 6 year old in the mall? She does act rather….mentally unstable…when she first sets her eyes on the child that looks so much like  her own son would have at that age. The police write Kate off as crazy. Discouraged and starting to question her own sanity, she hires a PI to prove the child from the mall is not her little boy. She's trying to move on with her life, but every time she hits a trigger it takes months for her to recover.

Connor Sullivan, the private investigator, agrees to take on her case even though he's a bit skeptical. However, Kate has money and she's willing to pay for him to dig around a little.

Much to everyone's shock, the truth that surfaces is beyond ugly… and more than a little twisted. Connor realizes that if he doesn't link together the answers to this 3 year old case - fast - he could be investigating the murder of the woman who is stealing his heart.
