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.


What the Critics Say

"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)

Kathryn Guare and Wayne Farrell fabulous together!

What did you love best about Deceptive Cadence?

Beautifully crafted thriller. Love all the characters and their complications. Frank is wonderfully drawn.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Connor McBride. He's tough yet sensitive. Perfect man.

Which scene was your favorite?

Loved the scenes where Connor is talking to his mother, and/or thinking about his mother and his family. There's a lot of depth and backstory to this thriller.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A lot of the Irish slang is humorous. The way they have of saying simple things. Love that.

Any additional comments?

I'd already read and loved Deceptive Cadence on the page, but I listened to Wayne Farrell read The Spinning Heart and I couldn't resist tuning in for this. So worth it.
