Thread of Suspicion

Author: Susan Sleeman
Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense
October 2013
ISBN: 978-0-3734-4557-8
Genre: Romantic Suspense


When someone sabotages former navy SEAL Luke Baldwin's "unhackable" software, there's more than his reputation at stake. Faced with treason charges, Luke turns to Dani Justice, a computer expert and skilled investigator. She's eager to dive into the challenging case…until she uncovers a devastating connection.

The hacker framing Luke has a personal, deadly history with Dani. Luke's code of honor and his growing feelings make him resolved to protect the sweet, strong woman he knows is more vulnerable than she'd admit. But what good is his training or determination against an enemy who can hack into any system and find them wherever they hide?

The Justice Agency: Family and law enforcement go hand in hand.

THREAD OF SUSPICION is the fourth book in Ms. Sleeman’s The Justice Agency series. The books easily stand alone, but readers will want the history on Dani’s siblings and their romances, so should look for Double Exposure, Dead Wrong, and No Way Out.

I am not a Navy SEAL, nor married to one, but I do understand the “tough guy” persona, and Ms. Sleeman developed it perfectly with Luke. When I first saw the subject matter—a computer hacker—I thought, “boring!” I’m not a technical person, and don’t care to read much about it. BUT, Ms. Sleeman managed to make this into high-action, edge of the seat suspense that drew me in and kept me reading. Yes, computer talk was included, but it wasn’t intrusive, it was just enough to make the story plausible.

If you like romantic suspense, then Ms. Sleeman is one of the best writing for Love Inspired Suspense. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. Don’t miss THREAD OF SUSPICION. $5.99. 224 pages.
