Sinful Deception by Linda S Prather and M A Comley Publication day #BookReview

About this book…

“At the end of the day, Foxy, we’re not all that different, really. I’m going to enjoy working with you.”

Detective Alex Fox now had positive proof that The Escape Artist was not only in New York, but monitoring her every move. As a member of the newly formed Special Investigations unit of the NYPD, she’s finally in a position to find him, put an end to his villainous crimes and avenge her sister’s brutal murder.

When the mutilated bodies of three teenage runaways are recovered, and with the abduction of former Commander Patterson, Alex is forced to put her plans on hold, as the unit is called in to investigate these horrendous crimes. With the two cases running side by side, Alex and her team are stretched to the limits in this edge-of-your-seat thriller.

My review…

Wow wow wow! Having loved all the Deception books so far this one really did get my old heart racing as we follow Alex Fox during her next case. And this time she gets even closer to The Escape Artist-closer than even SHE realises!
Mel Comley and Linda Prather have come together and done a brilliant job in creating such an intriguing villain. The Escape Artist is a seriously creepy criminal and here we start to find out much more about his background and what pushes him on in his quest to torment Alex further. In her latest case, teenage girls are turning up dead but is everyone who they say they are or are they all hiding behind their own masks?

Alex is such an amazing character creation and she is written with just the right balance of professionalism but with such a likeable personality that we are cheering her all the way on her journey for justice for her sister. Her relationship with Nobby is always so very poignant and moving to read that I always enjoy their scenes together.

This series just keeps getting better and I really can’t wait to read the next Deception as it looks like it is going to get seriously messy for Alex Fox! These books are absolutely unputdownable so if you haven’t discovered them before you are in for a spine chilling treat!

Sinful Deception: Book 2 in the gripping Deception series is published on 31st December 2016 and is available here at Amazon UK.
