Twisty. That’s the best possible way to describe this engaging psychological thriller.
Jacqueline has a pretty good life. She enjoys her job as a teacher. And if asked to describe her marriage of eight years, she’d probably say it was pretty good. All that comes to a screeching halt, however, when two police officers show up at her door with the worst possible news. Her husband has been killed in a tragic accident. Well, actually, that’s not the worst part of it. He wasn’t where he was supposed to be, and he definitely wasn’t supposed to be with the woman who died with him.
Confusion reigns as she tries to make sense of what happened. So when Nick, the fiance of the mystery woman, persuades her to join him on his quest to find answers she willingly joins him. But answers lead to more questions, and she finds herself no closer to the truth.
Nice little mystery with a neat little twist at the end. A great, quick read!
Criminal Nick Fox and FBI agent Kate O’Hare can’t be beat. They’ve got banter, brains, and brawn. In this installment of the Fox and O’Hare series, the duo saves lives, makes a date with the Hawaiian owner of the Shave Ice shack, travels around the world more than a few times, takes down bad guys with aplomb, and manages to scam one of the biggest scammers in the casino industry.
I was ready for a fast-paced full-on adventure, and I certainly got one. Reading The Scam was like watching an action movie – in a good way. When the bad guys seemed to have the upper hand, I was on the edge of my seat. When Kate’s dad joined in the scam, I was grinning about the terrific father-daughter relationship. And when Nick whispered sweet nothings … Well, I laughed … and then it warmed my heart.
The Scam isn’t realistic, but it’s fun, fast, and fabulous.
