“An Affair of Deceit” by Jamie Michele started out with a bang. I could not keep up with all the twists and turns of this spy thriller. Anything that seemed normal wasn’t. The relationships among the characters, main and supporting, were very surprising.
Abigail Mason had not heard from her father since she was a tiny girl. The fact that a government agency was now looking for him and thought that she would have any information was ludicrous to her. Her feigned indifference gave way to undaunted curiosity as she struggled to find the link to her father on her own. James Riley, PhD, was not about to let her spy on her own. The connection between the two made no sense for most of the novel. This was a surprisingly good thriller. Just when I thought I didn’t want to read more, another sentence brought me back. Read this to the end. It is a really good novel.
I was sent a free print copy of this book by Night Owl Reviews in return for my honest assessment of the book.
