BOOK REVIEW- DECEPTIVE PRACTICES

Deceptive Practices by [Wood, Simon]
Do you have a cheating spouse? Has counseling failed? Want to get even? Then hire Infidelity Limited…
Olivia Shaw grew up poor on the wrong side of the tracks, but with her thriving real estate business and a solid marriage, her life finally feels stable…until she discovers her husband is cheating. Enraged, her sister offers a solution: Infidelity Limited, a firm that promises to rough up her husband and scare him straight.
Overnight, Olivia’s life is upended as she, like all of Infidelity Limited’s clients, is drawn into a dark web of blackmail and murder. Now, Olivia is emerging as a prime suspect in her husband’s death. As a dogged detective closes in, Olivia has only one option: take down Infidelity Limited before it’s too late. AMAZON 5 STARS

Wow, what an incredible book.  And oh so not for the faint of heart.   It is so INTENSE. Olivia is way tougher than she looks, she's a not going down without a fight kind of gal. I really enjoyed her character in the story and it was really easy to be drawn in to the emotions that she was feeling.  The people in Infidelity Limited had no idea what they were getting into when they tangled with her.  Of course, she hadn't know what she had signed up for either, not at first.  Twists, turns, violence and death are all part of this story.  It just seems like every time Olivia might be catching a break, something or someone else happened.  Her sister who should have been on her side was one big liability after another.  Her enemies just keep going up in numbers, some who were almost invisible because the company had so many people on the hook to them. Roy is the main villain and he was so well drawn; not your usual kind of villain but lethal and cunning just the same.  Don't lose heart though because Olivia does end up having someone in her corner, no one was expecting that.  Through most of the book I'm thinking how in the world is she going to get out of this.  Or is she?  Even if she comes out of it alive, is she going to go to jail for the rest of her life?  How many more people have to die?  Is it going to be anyone she knows? Or is she going to have to look over her shoulder for the rest of her life?
Bravo, author! Bravo!
