Hidden Agenda - A Review

A Review

Undercover cop meets son and daughter of cartel boss - that sums up this book.  Oh, did I mention that they have to run, literally, for their lives.  

The book is another Christian thriller with a hint of romance that kept this reader guessing and on the edge of his seat from page one to the very end. I was fairly easy to trust Olivia as she and undercover cop Michael Hunt get to the bottom of the drug trade that transpired across most of the Southeastern seaboard of the United States.  On the other hand, Olivia’s brother Ivan was more difficult to decipher.  The occasional times he slipped away, the phone calls, the leaks to the cartel - I often thought he might be responsible.

The “cartel” was not well-defined.  Since this was the third book in a series, it is possible that reading earlier volumes would clear up that mystery - I had not.  That one missing piece of information provided the only hole in an otherwise excellent story. It was not clear, either from the story or from the book’s front matter, whether reading earlier books would have helped in understanding some of this story’s background.  The missing books did not distract from the storyline - except for the possible definition of the “cartel”.  

The book provides a winter diversion as we wait for Spring to settle in with its warmth.  Whether on a break from work or a late night read before heading to bed, Lisa Harris has provided an exciting read with lots of excitement.  I’m ready for more.,

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are my own.
