Suspenseful Mystery For Review

Silicon Slummin'...and Just Gettin' By
A Mary Jo Melendez Mystery, Book 2
By Steven M. Moore
Publisher: Carrick Publishing
Published: February 2015
ISBN: 978-1772420043
Pages: 229
Genre: Mystery, Suspense, Thriller

Mary Jo Melendez is back. The protagonist of Muddlin’ Through takes a permanent security job in the Silicon Valley after bouncing across the U.S. through temp jobs. Her future isn’t all bright, though, as she discovers she has a stalker. Moreover, two teams of agents, U.S. and Russian, are in hot pursuit. She hires a PI for surveillance and protection who becomes a new love interest. The two match wits against her pursuers. Will this ex-USN Master-at-Arms survive this time?

This is the second novel in the Mary Jo Melendez mystery series.  Besides the themes of romance, stalking, and government conspiracy, autism is treated--an autistic boy becomes an important part of this woman's life.  She's still the Nikita-like protagonist of the first novel, but the reader will have fun watching her grow into her new life and relate to the men and women in it.  Amazon ASIN: B00U1UK8S8.  (Free copies of this ebook are available in return for an honest review.)

And now with her biological clock ticking, she seduces her old friend Philip, and his partner Jonathan, into having a child with her through artificial insemination.

From the moment the parenting agreement is signed, Angela’s mask of deceit slips away and she leads the fathers-to-be on a relentless, agonizing journey filled with lies, anguish and finally tragedy that forever changes the lives of everyone involved.
