Publisher's Summary

Jason and Vanessa are back with a new case, and this one pushes them to the limit. Clues are being left at the scene of the homicides but they can't figure out the meaning.
Frustration mounts, as does the number of victims, but the detectives won't give up. Will they figure it out too late, or are they smarter than the killer gives them credit for.

Incredibly good serial murder mystery!

Author John Dalglish packs an excellent suspense mystery into a 2.5 hour novella. Cruel Deception is the 9th novella in the Jason Strong mystery series. I'm listing to several books in the very popular 16 novella series in random order. This is the best one so far.

It seems Real

What did you love best about Cruel Deception?

A fast moving story where the detectives seem like they are real in developing their investigation. The narrator, as he has done before, picks up the pace of the story as he reads the text. Joshua Bennington does his best work when the story flows. The book just ends too quickly leaving me to hope there will be a new adventure available real soon.

Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

Detective Strong is obviously the favorite as everything revolves around him.

Any additional comments?

Waiting for the next one. I like the concept of 2.5 hour books.
