Publisher's Summary

Meet Conor McBride. He's even more interesting than the trouble he gets into.
A talented Irish musician reluctantly reinvents himself, disappearing into an undercover identity to search for the man who ruined his career: his own brother. On a journey from the west of Ireland to the tumultuous city of Mumbai, Conor McBride's only goal is to redeem the brother who betrayed him. But he's becoming a virtuoso of a different kind in a dangerous game where the rules keep changing - and where the allies he trusted to help him may be the people he should fear the most.

Critic Reviews

"This is one of those times when a narrator lifts a good book just that much higher." (Audiothing)
"…sometimes you find a true gem out among the two- and three-star books. A gem just sitting there waiting to be noticed. This book is such a gem and it is worthy of your notice. It is an international thriller with a giant soul and a great deal of introspection. If you are looking for a 'shoot 'em up', this is not your book, even though there is plenty of shooting. It is the story of two brothers, and like all families, this family is complicated. The audiobook was read by Wayne Ferrell and he was amazing. His voice drew me right in and brought this excellent text to life. He demonstrated a mastery of multiple accents and, more importantly, carried the mood of the story in his tone and pacing as he read." (DWD’s Reviews)
"...expertly narrated by Wayne Farrell. His performance brought the characters to life and added the perfect amount of drama and angst to this well-written thriller." (Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards)

Just OK For Me

Since this book had so many awards, I started it with a lot of hope. It was a little disappointing after all of the awards, as I figured it was just an average book. Nothing great, nothing very bad. Just an average book.
Way too many long rambles around Ireland, India, and London. Lots of mysterious goings on that just get dull. I gave up trying to follow the story about 1/2 through, and just skimmed the rest. Vague Russians, oafish Americans, drugs, a saintly Indian woman. Wow, lots of imagination in need of harnessing and an editor who can figure out a narrative through all of the segments. But this book was just okay for me.

Wayne Farrell was outstanding with the delivery of the story and made book more enjoyable

Absorbing thriller with a compelling hero

Would you consider the audio edition of Deceptive Cadence to be better than the print version?

It's always great to get just a bit of the Irish brogue for an Irish hero.

What did you like best about this story?

The way it made you care deeply about the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The way the hero pushed forward despite his struggles with injury and shock.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended! I've read the books in the series, and the audio edition is just as good.
