Everyone hides secrets. Some provoke murder.

Olivia Denis discovers her father kneeling over the body of a man…a man who supposedly drowned in the Channel years before. Olivia wants to ring for help, her father wants to hide the body, but a mysterious phone call brings Scotland Yard to the murder scene.

Olivia can’t stand by and let her maddening, disapproving father hang. To prove his innocence – and learn his secrets - she must work with a master spy. The search for clues takes Olivia to the continent and the Kent countryside, Hastings and London, pushing her deeper into the world of danger and deception.

As war between Germany and Britain stalks closer, the hunt for a Nazi collaborator intensifies. With a mounting death toll, Olivia knows she must unmask the killer or be the next to die.

Deadly Deception is the 4th book in the Deadly series. If you are interested in reading the series you can follow this link to amazon to find out more about it [amazon link]. This is a very clever series, one that kept me entranced throughout my reading. I love the historical elements- I have been on a historical kick lately- and the action and adventure that Olivia finds herself a part of. Overall, this book fits in well with the series, has a wonderful cast of characters, and kept my rapt attention throughout the story. I couldn’t put the book down because of  how interesting I found it to be!

If you are a fan of historical cozy mysteries with a ton of action, this book anf series is a must read for you! It’s highly entertaining and has quite a bit of historical aspects that makes you feel like you are on a journey through another time. >> Recommended read.

About the author

Kate Parker grew up in Washington, D C, spent several years along the Carolina coast, and now finds herself in the Colorado front range. All the time, she has been busy plotting to spend more time in her favorite city, London, where her books are set. So far, she hasn’t been able to build a time machine, so she has to visit historical sites and books to immerse herself in the details of life in bygone days. 2019 will see the publication of her fourth Deadly Series book, Deadly Deception, as well as a novella, The Mystery at Chadwick House. Chadwick House will both be for sale at the usual retailers plus given away to the readers of her newsletter. It is her first contemporary mystery.
