Book Review – Network of Deceit

Network of Deceit

by Tom Threadgill

After her rescue of nearly fifty kidnapped children made international headlines, Amara Alvarez gets what she’s worked for: a transfer to San Antonio’s Homicide Division. Reality sets in quickly, though, as her first case, the suspicious death of a teenager at a crowded local water park, brings chaos to her personal life.

As the investigation moves forward and she increases the pressure on the suspects, Amara finds herself under attack by cybercriminals. Her every move is being potentially watched online, and she’s forced to resort to unconventional methods to find the killer. With few leads, she fights to keep her first murder investigation from ending up in the cold case files.

Tom Threadgill is back with another riveting page-turner featuring the detective who is willing to put everything on the line to see that justice is served and lives are protected.

My Thoughts

This is the second book in a series about detective Amara Alvarez.

More suspense, mystery, and all of that! This story definitely takes off with a bang!

Amara is trying to find her place at the San Antonio Police Department, and gets assigned a case that doesn’t seem like much…until she starts investigating!

I very much enjoyed watching Amara try and solve this mystery. On the surface, this death she is investigating seems to be a simple death by heatstroke, but there are some things that just don’t quite match up. And then there is the matter of cyber crimes…why is she being targeted in this way? Someone is wanting Amara to see they can get to her accounts and passwords however they jolly well please.

In addition to the mystery, Amara also has some difficult things happening on the personal side of things. Her family and those issues are written into the story in a beautiful way.

And then there is her other relationships. Especially the one with Starsky. This was a bit humorous to watch at times, but added so much to the story.

This story has lots going on, and the mystery kept me guessing the entire way through the book.

If you enjoy reading mysteries than I highly recommend this book!
