DARK DECEPTION had me jumping at shadows & sleeping with the lights on, yikes! Grabbing me at page one, it whisked me off to the murky world of psychotic serial killers and their equally creepy groupies.
We follow our heroine Kate O’Brien to the small-town of Shelter Cove, Arkansas, where she is endeavoring to rebuild her life after four years in the witness protection program. Kate still battles with PTSD and survivor’s guilt long after the brutal attack that stole her identity, and snuffed out the life of her beloved twin sister.
Now new evidence comes to light and seems to suggest that the man convicted as the brutal B. E. K. murderer wasn’t the killer after all!
Kate’s recovery is suddenly turned upside down as she is subpoenaed to testify in a new trial, but she is afraid to go back into that other life, a world that nearly destroyed her. She will only return if Tony DeLuca, the deputy Marshal who protected her during the original trial will escort her.
Tony readily takes on the assignment; Kate’s beauty and inner strength made more of an impression on him than he expected. But when Kate’s safety is threatened, and people close to Kate start dying, Tony must race against the clock to keep her alive and put this ugly case to rest before anyone else gets killed.
Leave The Lights On!
If you enjoy a great whodunit then you’ll want to get your own copy. This thriller is one wild ride! The story is constantly twisting and turning, keeps the reader guessing, and all while they keep checking over their shoulder and keeping the lights on.
DARK DECEPTION is now available on Amazon or at your other fine book retailers. It is Book Two in Nancy Mehl’s Defenders of Justice series.
I want to thank Bethany House Publishers for sending me this complimentary book in exchange for my review.
