This book, as well as the first in the series - Tangled Lies - are decent plots, but the stories are not well organized and the characters frequently take leaps that are simply not logical. Nevertheless, I was entertained and enjoyed the books.
Jacquie Floyd is an "ok" narrator for the main characters - but she makes secondary characters sound like little old men or little old ladies - or someone that doesn't have any teeth in their mouth. I think a different narrator that didn't try so hard at changing her voice or creating different inflections would improve the overall story-line. I"ll probably read the next in the series - but I doubt that I will listen to it.
While the majority of Hidden Threat was well-written and entertaining, I was disgusted that domestic abuse was casually excused and minimized.
Cole Sutton's father viciously beat both his wife and son, yet Cole's mother believed it was her Christian duty to stay with her cruel husband and meekly submit to physical assault. She actually lectured Eve on how to be a good wife and mother, as if allowing an innocent child to be beaten regularly made her mother of the year.
Although I normally appreciate Christian books that promote kindness, compassion and generosity, I am horrified when religion is subverted to justify violent and degrading behavior.
