For four years, Kate Marshall has been grieving the loss of her husband and their three-year-old son in a boating accident. But when she spots a familiar-looking child on an escalator in the mall, she is convinced it is the son she thought was dead. With police skeptical of her story, she turns to private investigator Connor Sullivan. The former Secret Service agent is dubious but agrees to investigate. Digging into the case he discovers that the incident may have been no accident at all. But if Kate's son is alive, someone is intent on keeping him hidden - and may be willing to 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 plot line that accelerates to an explosive finish.

I did not read the print version. I have been listening to Audible books for over 2 years now. No looking back. Holding a book hurts my hands, so listening is best for me and we travel a lot. Listening in the car for five hours at a time helps make the trip seem shorter.
We love Irene Hannon's books. They have suspense and keep us on the edge of our seats. We love that she is a woman of faith and she keeps it in the telling of her stories.The main character knew things were amiss in the investigation of the death of her husband and son so the ending was very surprising.
She keeps the characters interesting and the plot intriguing.
Kate Baldwin is a very good narrator and she keeps you interested in the story.
I don't want to give the story away if you haven't read or listened to it yet. I love that when I read or listen to this author there will be no bad language or sex scenes. But in no way are they boring, preachy, or uninteresting!
A nice ride
I must say that I quite enjoyed this book. The story was well crafted and the characters well drawn. The only negatives for me, were the religious references and the character of the kidnapper who was on one hand portrayed as a nice guy and good father figure and on the other as a murderer and child stealer who was intent on murdering again. I think a more interesting and evil character could have been developed, which would have made the story more interesting, rather than the Mr "ordinary nice guy" that had simply lost the plot when his own son died. I'm not sure why this book commanded so many 5/5 scores. I have read far better mystery/thrillers that commanded this type of score, but alas they don't come by that often. In summary, an OK read.
