Book Description

Mitch Hasslet, a war photojournalist relegated to a desk job, is the sole witness to a heist of Mayan artifacts. Recruited by the enigmatic director of the Museum of Art and Antiquities, Mitch is sent to Guatemala, the last location the shipment was tracked to. Acting as the museum staff photographer, Mitch joins a group of archaeologists. His goal is to locate the artifacts as swiftly as possible so that he can collect his compensation and get the hell out of the jungle.

Alexandra Langley is about to run out of funds. She has yet to discover the lost Mayan civilization she knows lurks in the rainforest. To achieve her grant, she will accept the museum's latest nuisance, Mitch Hasslet, and any other obstacle that is sent her way.

Unsuccessful and desperate, Alex has decided to move the group to a portion of the jungle referred to as, “No Man’s Land”−a sector where archaeological teams have ventured but never returned.

As Mitch and Alex discover romance, will their bond protect them in a jungle filled with deceit?

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the heat August 24, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ms. Miller steps away from the chilling elements typically found in her stories and takes us into a sweltering `Jungle of Deceit'. For me the suspense pulled this story along; the mildly romantic subplot took a back seat to the mysteries that were filtered throughout this book.

A beautifully descriptive setting, typical of Ms. Miller, shows us a hidden compound deep within the jungle that provides little sense of comfort for her characters. The details of Mayan artifacts and those who search to uncover them, or those who wish to profit off of them, are also well written. However, the hero and heroine lacked something I'm not quite able to put my finger on in this particular tale. She makes it work though - the books is about more than exchanging witty digs in avoidance of the inevitable, there is intense adventure in which two people are trying to find out the truth about the compound, their roles in the plan and the deceit of those in their lives. Love develops as a consequence, I get that.

In short, Ms. Miller always pulls through with an enjoyable page turning read and we should look forward to her next piece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lies, deception and sparks that fly! February 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dr. Alexandra Langley is a woman trying to get out from under the shadow of her famous archeologist father, Franklin. It seems no matter what she does in the field, his name looms large. When an opportunity comes up to look for lost Mayan artifacts in the jungle of Guatemala, she jumps at the chance to lead her own expedition. She runs her group with an iron hand. She must not show any weakness or vulnerabilities, that is, until photo-journalist Mitch Hasslet joins her team.

Mitch has his own demons to overcome from a past war assignment. When he accepts the assignment from the enigmatic Museum Director, Mr. Nicholson, to track a stolen shipment of Mayan artifacts, he has no idea that he would be joining Alex's team.

Sparks fly between Mitch and Alex and not always in a good way. Ms. Miller does a good job of revealing the back-stories for both of the main characters while weaving an intense and engaging storyline. Searching for Mayan artifacts in the jungle has its own perils especially when the team stumbles into an area known as "No Man's Land." The jungle comes alive with vivid descriptions, almost too vivid. It made me realize that I never want to visit there--the humidity, the mosquitoes and the screeching night sounds are definitely not for me, but it's a sign of excellent writing when you're so immersed in a story that you start to feel itchy right along with the characters.

Jungle fires, lies, deception and a fight for their lives make JUNGLE OF DECEIT a romantic suspense story at its best. This is the second story I've read by Ms. Miller and I have no problem recommending her books highly to fans who want more than a typical romance story.

I like mild romance - not over the top romance - mysteries with twists, turns and guessing who done it and Jungle of Deceit has all of these things.

I liked the location, Guatemala, but I would not have liked being in the jungle. At one point Dr. Alex and Mitch were chatting in the jungle and Alex kept saying Mitch several times to get him to stop talking and listen to her for a second but Mitch kept talking so Alex reached down and picked up a (can't tell you what-spoiler) and when Mitch saw her he just stared - if I were there I would of been saying "come on feet don't fail me now" and I'd of been gone for sure.

I like Maureen's right to the point descriptions of all the characters, places and things like the the artifacts, the jungle etc. Maureen never goes on and on in the 3 books I have read of hers.

Maureen started out as an indie author a few years back so I can say " I knew her writing when she was a indie and she now has a publisher congratulations Ms.Miller) and I will still read her stories now that her dream has come true for her !!

Jungle of Deceit is yet another Maureen A. Miller winner from the very beginning to the very last page. Keep them coming please :>)

I recommend the 3 books I have read by Maureen.

Doctor Alex Langley is a tough (on the outside) archaeologist, her estranged father the esteemed Doctor Franklin Langley. When it comes to men, she has serious trust issues. Enter Mitch Hasslet, a digs photographer foisted on her by the Museum of Art and Antiquities, who has his own agenda...

Adventure, romance, mystery, thrills, twists... Jungle of Deceit has them all. The sultry Guatemalan jungle complete with mosquitoes (made me itch) is more than simply a backdrop - it's integral to the story and a character in its own right. Deceit is all around.

Miller's fluid and easy writing style makes for a fast, page-turning read. Engaging and entertaining. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jungle of Deceit... Who do you trust? November 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ms. Miller creates a world that we don't want to believe exists. Yet, we know that evil is alive and well in our world and a real possibility that things we have never, and hope to never, experience are happening.

Dr. Alex is the type of woman we would hope to be in a dangerous situation. Photojournalist Mitch is the man we would want by our side in any situation. Sent to join Alex's team as a photographer, Mitch is undercover to find museum artifacts that he witnessed being stolen. But, on an archeological dig deep in a jungle Alex should be careful who she trusts. Old friends and new enemies mix to create a suspenseful twist and turn story that leads to a surprise ending.

Descriptive scenes, realistic (yet, secondary) romance, betrayal and surprising revelations have me giving Jungle of Deceit five stars.
