Deceived by Irene Hannon from Revell


by Irene Hannon



A grieving mother. A mysterious child. And a dedicated PI who’s determined to solve the puzzle.

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 skeptical 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, Deceived is filled with complex characters, unexpected twists, and a riveting plotline that accelerates to an explosive finish.


When Kate heard the blond headed boy at the mall say ‘poppysicle’ she called his name, Kevin. And Kevin looked straight at her, or was it Kevin? But Kevin had been killed three years earlier in a boating accident along with her husband. I felt so bad for Kate. She had finally gotten her life together again, and seeing this little boy who looked so much like her son brings it all back again. Since the local police didn’t find Kate’s story credible, she resorts to big time PI’s at Phoenix, Inc. And Conner Sullivan was the PI who takes her case. Tall, dark and movie star handsome, Conner Sullivan. And Conner actually listened to her, thinking it may be a possibility that this little boy at the mall could be Kate’s son Kevin. But it was a long shot. And as the investigation progresses, so does the attraction between Kate and Conner.

I think that’s enough to tell about this book. I love Irene Hannon, and this is one of her best. I highly recommend this to all of you who enjoy a good on suspense/thriller!
