Deceived

Deceived

Secrets.
What secrets are hidden at the heart of family life?

Deceit.
The lies we tell ourselves are often more dangerous than the truth.

When forty-one-year-old Sarah Price is reported missing after having arranged a date with a man she met on the internet, her son is distraught.

Meanwhile, Glasgow based Detective Inspectors Kat Wheeler and Steven Ross attend the scene of a murder. Michael O’Donnell, a widower and devoted stay-at-home dad to his daughter, Paula, has been brutally killed. And Paula, who is vulnerable and dependent on daily medication, is missing.

As Wheeler and Ross race to find Michael’s killer and Paula’s abductor, they are drawn into a tangled web of deceit. Soon they come to realise that the killer is watching them. And is always one step ahead…

...fast paced, exciting and gritty crime debut...fans of Ian Rankin and Val McDermid will be delighted to add a new author to the their must-read list
Candis Magazine
A super story with a breath-taking ending that leaves you wondering whether the truth is better left unsaid at times. I loved this story and am keen to read more by this author in the future. She is definitely a name to watch! Highly recommended

For fans of Stuart MacBride, this is a delight to read. A J McCreanor is a welcome addition to the Scottish crime scene. Glasgow is in very dangerous hands
