Deception (Powell Book 3) by Bill Ward – My Review!!
I do like a good thriller, and Deception by Bill Ward, fits the bill (no pun intended). Read on to see what I thought about the book!
Synopsis (from the author): The Americans aren’t happy with the changing political climate in Britain. Elements of the CIA and MI6 enter into a conspiracy to help shape the thinking of the British public.
Meanwhile ISIS has a plan to bring terror to the streets of Britain.
Powell is caught in the middle when he offers help to a former lover, whose life is in danger. Soon it becomes evident, someone will stop at nothing to see them both silenced.
Unsure who can be trusted, Powell must act to save the lives of his friends and right a terrible wrong.
What I liked: The book started with a bang and didn’t let up until the end. The idea that government agencies would work to influence the public’s opinion in a nefarious way harkens back to any number of scandals, and makes it believable. Powell and the other characters were believable, too. With plenty of action, good characters, and an entertaining storyline, I liked Deception!
What I didn’t like: I had a little trouble with the idea that the Americans could run such a complex operation in Britain, but once I accepted it, the story worked. I thought the demise of Lara was too predictable, as well.
Overall impression: Deception by Bill Ward was an entertaining read. Good action, good characters, and a believable plot makes this a book to add to your TBR list! My only regret is that I picked up the third book in the series…now I have to read the first two!
My rating: 4 Stars
