For such a short novella, it really grabs you by the throat -the plot had me hooked and I was so absorbed in the story, I finished it on mydaily commute! Eeeeeeeek! I am so excited about this series!! Crimebookjunkies.
From start to finish it is very fast-paced and the suspense just keeps increasing until we reach a very dramatic ending which honestly left me exhausted, emotional, sad, angry and yearning for more... Relax and Read Reviews
I love reading Mels books as well as Linda's so getting themtogether can only lead to brilliance, which this book is. Tom Elder.
OMG! What a brilliant novella. Mel Comley and Linda Prather aregreat on their own as writers but together they are amazing. It's like my loveof peanut butter and my love of chocolate-on their own they are pretty good butput them together and I am in heaven!! Joanne Robertson.
Book heaven is when two of your favourite authors team up to write a new series together. This is what the amazing Mel Comley and Linda Prather have done with Clever Deception, a novella and the start of the Deception series. Sue McQuaide Kitt

I was hooked from the first sentence until the end, absolutely brilliant. Audrey Gibson.
Alex Fox is a strong character who's not afraid to say what she thinks and I look forward to learning more about her. America won't know what's hit them when she arrives. Jackie Roache.
I loved it! I have to be honest and say that I didn't know the authors until now, so I cannot compare this to their previous work. Federica.
M. A. Comley and Linda Prather not only filled my high expectations they went above and beyond. Diane.
Clever Deception is a novella, so I finished it in a short period of time. I must say, I enjoy this approach: having a novella to kick off a new character and series. Tanya Brough
