That being said, I was also keenly aware the converging viewpoints and achronological timeline added to the tension and suspense of the piece which I suspect is the the cornerstone of the thriller. As I read on, “Deception” became an “easy read” and a satisfactory resolution was met, but I never found myself rooting for a character or witnessing a change, growth, or evolution in any of them, something I began to long for in the character of Alicia Diaz. As a reader I was satisfied, but not fully.
As the plot develops, so do the characters. For a first novel, the characters are particularly well written...that's a skill which normally comes with an author's third or fourth book, so this is a major plus for Deception. It's a plot-focused book but driven by character: a rare thing indeed.
Occasionally we see the same scene repeated in the following chapter, from the second character's perspective. The first time this happened it was a little frustrating, as we know exactly what is going to happen. But actually, the author takes us on a fascinating journey looking at how both characters feels and react in the same situation, which makes it a totally refreshing read.
I must confess to being a slow reader normally...but I finished all 338 pages in just four sittings. This book would just not let me put it down.
