When a loyal husband and father searches through his wife’s personal computer files and papers, he is trying to find evidence of her innocence in the case against her. A case that has resulted in her conviction for the murder of her alleged serial-killer patient and his wife.
So what is the story of Dr. Susie Harriot, and will Lachlan Harriot find what he needs for her appeal?
Sorting through the morass of these files, however, will lead Lachlan to unexpected secrets, twisted truths, and will finally convince him that he did not know his wife at all.
Throughout this story, I found that the best part was not knowing who to believe and untangling the many-faceted aspects of the case.
An intense psychological thriller, Deception : A Novel kept me tuned in until the surprising end, which is why I gave it five stars.
