Format: Paperback
Scott Hazlewood's espionage thriller "Vested Interest" is full of energy, drama, and suspense. As with any thriller, Hazlewood's narrative has a penchant to draw the reader in from the beginning with a bizarre murder mystery that--as layer after layer is lifted from the plot--reels in the main character into a complex bind that evolves into a threat on her life.

The backstory revolves around a special forces team that included the demanding Sergeant Boots Brody and Special Forces Captain Billy Wilson. In 1983, a bizarre turn of events leads to the mission being leaked from within, ambushing Wilson and his unit; Boots Brody is the only survivor.

Then, Lynn Wilson was but a child, one who would grow up without a dad. Though the truth of her father's death was hidden from Lynn and her mother, the story quickly moves to Lynn's young adult life. She is now a powerful personality, a young reporter who models after her Uncle Boots and father Captain Billy Wilson.

Like a rocket, "Vested Interest" launches into the imagination of the audience when the secret and mystery surrounding the last mission is passed on to Lynn. Sergeant Boots Brody is dying of cancer, and his lifelong goal to decipher and gain justice for his fallen comrade will be in vain. Acknowledging this, he hands over the case to his niece, Lynn.

In her quest to uncover a breakthrough in the case, Lynn will face a series of obstacles and attacks on her life. Can she survive the conspiracy and treachery--perhaps homegrown, within the unit--and unveil the enemy? Just how powerful is the enemy? In entertaining fashion, Vested Interest will answer these and many other questions. It's a must read!

Format: Paperback
Vested Interest is rooted in long-forgotten, concealed secrets powered by a strong female lead, Lynn Wilson. Scott Hazlewood's thriller is charged with exciting, action-packed scenes revolving around a Special Forces ambush in 1983 that led to the death of Lynn's uncle, Captain Billy Wilson.

Unlike the typical female lead, Lynn Wilson is a budding reporter who employs a "I have to get to the bottom of this" zeal, the trademark of an independent and adept journalist. In a nutshell, Captain Billy Wilson and Sergeant Boots Brody have an exceptional relationship--a rarity because of the demanding nature of Sergeant Brody. The secret remains buried within the Sergeant; however, when he realizes he has cancer, he feels obligated to deliver the information to Wilson's daughter. Though Brody is unable to solve the mystery of the ambush in his lifetime, he fully believes that Lynn Wilson will uncover the truth and bring her father's killers to justice.

Sometimes, knowing too much can be hazardous. Lynn Wilson discovers this danger the difficult way as she finds herself in the midst of treacherous company, unsure of whom to trust. How does one fight against an unseen enemy?

Scott Hazlewood's writing style is smooth and free-flowing; it is aesthetically appealing and easy to comprehend. Readers will find "Vested Interest" to be an enjoyable read. Though it is 370 pages long, it never feels that way. In fact, readers will be eager for more from Hazlewood.

What would you do if you had cancer and had a limited amount of time to live? The old CIA agent decides to take on a cold case and his niece takes over upon his death. The answers she uncovers expose her to plenty of danger along the way. This action thriller practically turns pages on its own with plenty of interesting paths and heroic feats. I love mystery novels and this one has a little bit of everything for those who enjoy this genre. If you do not normally read this type of book, this would be a good place to start.

Scott Hazlewood, "Vested Interest" is a political thriller. It'd not a genre I often read, but this book reeled me in. It has an engaging plot with twists and turns and suspense that will keep readers glued to the book. If you like adventure stories with action and adventure in the plot, you'll definitely enjoy "Vested Interest." It is also filled with suspense and mystery, to the point that the main character, Lynn Wilson, finds she can trust no one.
I highly recommend it.

It was a quite fascinating the way Hazlewood slowly, but surely unfolded the events of Lynn Wilson. I am pretty sure readers can speak about the issue of trust and that is what Hazlewood presents to everyone. Let me just say if you love mysteries, you are going to love this book. It has it all, twist and mystery and suspense or conspiracy and drama. As suspense and intrigue builds, readers will be awestruck and enthusiastic by Hazlewood's story as each new plot twist unfolds.
