Michael Hunt has been presumed dead by his family the past eight months as he works tirelessly undercover to bring down the leader of a drug cartel. But suddenly his cover is blown and the authorities think he is the traitor. Unsure who to trust or where to turn, Michael is surprised to find an ally in the place he least expected. But as dangers continue to mount and as circumstances become even more perilous, Michael wonders if maybe he chose the wrong path. He must be very careful with his actions and in choosing whom to trust if he wishes to remain alive and complete his mission without endangering anyone else.
Hidden Agenda has an exciting opening that grabs the reader with its intensity and suspense. The characters are instantly likable despite the uncertainty of the tremulous circumstances. The plot is initially very enjoyable with its fast-paced action and danger, but unfortunately, it slows a bit in the middle, regrettably loosing its beginning momentum. Nevertheless, the action once again picks up near the end and concludes with its earlier entertaining suspense and intrigue. I particularly applaud Lisa Harris in creating a character that is deaf, adding a truly fascinating character that is believable and interesting to read. As is often the case with suspense novels, the romance is rushed, but the thoughts and feelings of the characters are believable, especially their uncertainty with these new romantic thoughts, which is appreciated. Overall, the novel is fun to read and recommended for lovers of contemporary suspense.
I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
