For fans of intense suspense, police procedurals, and plot twists
Labyrinth of Lies by Irene Hannon is a fantastic read for suspense fans. It hits all of the marks for me: undercover police, Mexican drug cartel, DEA agents, plot twists, action, drama, danger, and an over-the-top-intense ending. Cate Reilly goes undercover in a boarding school to find out what happened to a missing teenager. But, DEA agent and Cate’s former boyfriend, Zeke Sloan, also goes undercover. Imagine the tension when they both meet undercover. They decide to work together to close both cases.
I really liked the suspense elements in this story. You’ve got the drug dealers, Cate posing as an undercover student, Zeke trying to hide his feelings for Cate as they contend with their contentious break up, and the mystery of the missing girl. I really like that Hannon writes from various points of view, including several of the potential villains, so readers get total immersion in the story as they try to figure out who the culprits are.
Definitely move this up your TBR list. It’s book two in the Triple Threat series, but you can read as a standalone.
5 stars (I loved it, couldn’t put it down)
5 stars (Non-stop edge-of-your-seat suspense from start to finish)
