Contemporary Women's Mystery Available For Review

A Current Deception
By Arleen Alleman
Publisher: Xlibris
Published: January 2015
ISBN: 978-1503539006 (paperback)
ISBN: 978-1503538993 (hardcover)
ISBN: 978-1503539013 (ebook)
Pages: 339
Genre: Contemporary Women's Mystery/Adventure

A Current Deception is the fifth novel in the Darcy Farthing mystery series. Each book stands alone, but the characters’ lives and relationships constantly evolve through the stories.

Freelance reporter Darcy Farthing boards a luxury cruise ship for a trip to beautiful Australian seaports with family and friends, where a baffling murder mystery challenges her investigative skills. The crimes begin when a small town.

Kansas woman traveling with a class reunion tour group is plagued by an attack of yellow crazy ants—a dangerous invasive species—as well as an illness caused by mysterious food-borne bacteria, and the odd cancellation of an onshore tour. The bizarre but relatively minor incidents escalate when the ants injure more passengers and crew members. Soon, a peculiar death on the streets of Adelaide, and attempted murders on board the ship threaten to cause panic. It is obvious that a crew member or passenger is targeting individuals, but who is it, and why?

Meanwhile, Darcy is distracted by daughter Rachael’s uncharacteristic behavior and intense friendship with a charismatic passenger. Reluctant to make waves, Darcy tries to suppress her concerns. She turns her full attention to the crimes when evidence is found in her friend Brooks’ stateroom and the security chief names him as the sole suspect. Brooks is clearly innocent, but the chief is inexplicably reluctant to conduct a more thorough investigation to clear him. Then Darcy’s best friend, Sid, who is also Brooks’ fiancé, becomes the latest victim. Clue by clue, with husband Mick’s help Darcy uses her skills to reveal a homicidal master of disguise and world class computer hacker intent on exacting revenge related to a twenty-year-old crime.

A paradise is now lost and gone,
Never to be found again.
Whomever the demons come upon,
No more peace but only pain.

Like a cold witches’ brew.
An Oasis for all.
Now a hell for the few,
Who remain to tell all.

Warm winds turn cold
As all become prey.
The young and old.
For them we must pray. 

Hell hath no fury
Like a demon scorned.
There is no jury
For a small town mourned.

Who’ll save Oasis
From ‘The Dead’ demons?
Who will now face us,
More dead or demons?

Pray for us.
We are alone
Come save us.
We must atone.

River, Chase, and Gabriel offer Mack protection while they bring the El Diablo Cartel to its knees, and only by assisting them with yet another job will she gain the skills she needs to save her own life.

Become a high-end escort.

Can McKenna turn from a reclusive historian to sex-pot, or will it end up being more trouble than it's worth?
