While representing a wealthy tycoon and his ambitious and devious grandson, hard-boiled lawyer Jake Stone is saved from a vicious beating in a shady alley by a lovely young woman with a knack for the martial arts. Snowflake, she calls herself and quickly latches onto Jake for a wild ride through the underbelly of corporate America and beyond. But is she who she says she is, just a humble paralegal looking for a job, or is she a corporate spy, a gun runner, an assassin, or simply a nice girl on the hunt for a decent guy, or perhaps all of the above?
The big question is whether Jake will live long enough to find out.
“At 190 heart stopping pages Deception is a rollicking, action-packed thriller with plenty of bullets, bodies, karate chops, belly laughs and shady characters to enchant even the most demanding reader. I especially enjoyed Snowflake. Now there’s a girl who really knows how to kick butt in style! I look forward to reading the next volume in this wild and engrossing series.” Theodora K.

"The book is great, and surprisingly well developed, given all the twists and turns. This author has a way of vividly depicting events that has the reader SEEING the altercations and fights. Here's a story that's a good comedy ( or is it a farce?)! The ending is a good surprise, and I do wonder about the lawyer's next steps." Purplespa
