DEADLY FUN – The perfect sleuth is a chameleon, every man’s perfect dream.
Exotic luxury cruises to the Bahamas are supposed to be fun and exciting. This trip is just a routine investigative job for a woman who works in disguise and undercover, using her beauty to entice men to reveal their secrets. The exciting and sometimes harrowing is expected, but this job will be like no other.
Her boss is aboard, as is a mafia enforcer with murderous ties to her own family. She chases suspects through the tropical islands, gets in physical confrontations with a knife, fist and firearms. By the end of the cruise, the deck is awash in blood. Can she survive a deadly fun cruise–and her boss, who may prove more deadly than the mobsters?
“Very Fun Read by Avid Reader”
To everyone on the cruise ship Dan and Linda Duncan are the perfect couple; married, gorgeous, and in love! Little do they know that the couple are actually undercover agents, Lance and Lolita, sent to extract information from Mafia Kingpin, Steven Marconi. Their goal is to find enough incriminating evidence to put the entire Marconi Family behind bars for murder and extortion. But the task is not as easy as they anticipated, forcing both agents into some compromising, uncomfortable, and dangerous predicaments.
The story was a very fun and entertaining read. I enjoyed the development of Dan and Linda’s characters as the attraction between the two of them grew. I could picture the cruise ship, the fellow passengers, and the exotic locations they toured while on land.
I would give this book 4.5 stars because there were a couple of things that pulled me from the story; I found the information about Lolita’s husband and their background repetitive throughout the book. I ended up skimming over those parts because it didn’t move the story forward. I also found the ending a bit disappointing. It seemed to end too abruptly for me.
But, all in all, I really enjoyed the story and will look for more books from Pamela M. Richter.
