I really enjoy the Cotton Malone books, and was disappointed that the last Steve Berry book did not have him in it, but that lack has been more than made up by this exciting, interesting and entertaining book. Once again Cotton is thrown into a situation about which he knows very little, and it also affects his son Gary. The action takes place in and around London, and involves a deep secret that, if revealed, could shake the British nation to its very core.
Gary is kidnaped, and Cotton sets out to find him, and there are forces moving that seem to clash with each other, and with Malone. Something exciting happens on almost every page, and this is a real page turner. The last scenes take place under ground in an old cavern, with unusual things interred there. To say more about that might be to ruin the surprise for the next reader, but I think that most observant, thoughtful readers will discern the "deception" of the title well in advance of the characters in the book.
I speed throught these books because they are almost incapable of being put down, and I think that you may feel the same way, also.
What did you think of this review?
