Publisher's Summary

Ollie Chandler is a brilliant and quick-witted homicide detective whose First Law is: "Things are not what they appear." So when a university professor is found murdered and the motive looks like revenge, a stunning discovery leads him to an unimaginable conclusion. Could the murderer be a fellow homicide detective?

As Ollie probes deeper, another detective is murdered. What is the root of this jumbled, deceptive mess of lies and secrets? Jake Woods returns from Deadline, and Clarence Abernathy from Dominion in this heart-pounding murder mystery bristling with tension and suspicion. Deception will take you to heaven and hell and back again...breathless to discover the truth.

    "Great book, fun"

    If you like Colombo, this books is for you. Great story. It does have a Christian theme so don't download this book and complain about that. It brings a nice mix of the need for salvation and the things that typically trip people up. Great suspense and surprise. Enjoy the listen

    "Fun Read"

    Some reviewers have appeared upset that this book is based on a Christian world view and that Audible did not make that clear. But I've listened to a lot of books that were pushing New Age or some other doctrine and were simply listed as Sci Fi or fiction etc. with no hint as to the author's philosophy. So at least Audible is consistent. Besides it would be impossible to classify every book based on the world view of the author and unfair to mark only books written by authors who are Christians for special labeling.

    The bottom line is that Alcorn has done a nice job in writing a hard boiled detective novel that is clean and wholesome. It was interesting, thought provoking and just plain fun. And I should also mention that the narrator did a great job and his voice characterizations made this an easy listen. In my opinion definitely worth a credit.

    Story
    "A Fun Read to the END"
    What did you love best about Deception?

    The humor throughout the story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes!


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator made me picture the characters more vivid than if I had read the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many for me. I think my favorite is when the main character daughter paid a visit, and brought him desert for his birthday. He had already eaten, but he hid the evidence. I thought it was sweet.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the suspense. The theme is so well blended that it enhanced the story. I'm a christain, but I have read many christain stories that bored me. Deception is fun, and there is lots of action. I want spoil it, but the reveal of the killer was a shocker.

    Excellent story for our family. We didn't want to stop our road trips.

    Hoping for a 4th book.

    Very good narration.

    "Good enough to recommend"

    This was my first introduction to Ollie Chandler and I found myself liking the detective. He is portrayed realistically and I appreciated the glimpses of Heaven woven into the story.

    "Couldn't Put it Down"
    What did you love best about Deception?

    I loved everything about this book. I fell in love with Ollie right from the start. The suspense and the unique storyline kept me interested. I like stories with faith involved and this one was not as sappy as some can be, so there was nothing to turn me off. It was a pure delight to read.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The suspense was never-ending.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was particularly good with the delivery of the humourous moments.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes.

    "Worth more than one listen"

    I bought this book several years ago. Enjoyed it then and again today. The narration is perfect for the story. There were negative comments in the reviews about the Christian emphasis in the story. I don't care to be preached to but I found the religious content to be in keeping with the story. The reader is free to choose his response to what is presented. Good listen.

    It was a great storyline but the best part of this audiobook was the character Ollie Chandler and the reader who made him come alive.
