We find police detective Amara Alvarez on a suspicious case involving a teenager found dead on a raft. What follows is an unpredictable mystery with plenty of suspense! There was a lot I enjoyed about the story - the fact that it was set at a great pace and that I didn't find it to be cookie cutter were probably the best things for me of course. The writing flowed perfectly for a suspenseful tale; I didn't feel it was stilted at any point. In fact, I found the injected humor in places to be really refreshing - a great contrast to the heavier moments.
I am also very much a character-driven reader, and I like for characters to be somewhat grounded in reality (could I meet someone like this? is a question I often ask myself). Because of this, I enjoyed Tom Threadgill's take on making Amara a "real" character. One who makes mistakes - one that has flaws!
Now, for those who notice - this book's publisher, Revell, is Christian-focused. Network of Deceit is definitely a "clean" tale for readers who do not want "colorful" scenes and language in what they are reading. This is more of a note for readers who would not usually see themselves picking up something from a Christian publisher: if you enjoy mystery and suspense, and a great story that has you guessing at every turn - do yourself a favor and pick up this book!
