Deceptive Practices by Simon Wood

Available for Pre-order. This item will be released on November 15, 2016.

From the Back Cover:

Do you have a cheating spouse? Has counseling failed? Want to get even? Then hire Infidelity Limited…
Olivia Shaw grew up poor on the wrong side of the tracks, but with her thriving real estate business and a solid marriage, her life finally feels stable…until she discovers her husband is cheating. Enraged, her sister offers a solution: Infidelity Limited, a firm that promises to rough up her husband and scare him straight.
Overnight, Olivia’s life is upended as she, like all of Infidelity Limited’s clients, is drawn into a dark web of blackmail and murder. Now, Olivia is emerging as a prime suspect in her husband’s death. As a dogged detective closes in, Olivia has only one option: take down Infidelity Limited before it’s too late.

My Thoughts:

Simon Wood is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors. So when I had the opportunity to review one of his books prior to the release date of November 15, 2016, I actually got all giddy about it!   His ability to pull you into the story is phenomenal and then you cannot let go until the very end.  He is a master of intrigue and suspense!

"Deceptive Practices" starts out with Olivia's gut-wrenching discovery that her husband is cheating on her.  As she sits in her car watching him take another woman into his arms Olivia''s thoughts turn from her deep emotional pain to having the intense desire to allow her car to lurch forward and run the two of them down.  Her thoughts are disrupted by her cell phone ringing and as she confides her misery to her sister Clare, a new plan starts developing.  A plan to make him pay.  That plan grows into something much more sinister after Olivia contacts Infidelity Limited, a "discreet" service that deals with infidelity issues, and Olivia finds herself in far more trouble than she could have possibly imagined.  Can she escape this murderous cycle and still stay two steps ahead of Detective Finz?  You'll have to read this to find out!  I'm not giving any spoilers!  But I will tell you that I had tears in my eyes at the very end.

A pre-release copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
