Lynette Eason is quickly becoming one of my favorite suspense authors. Her latest, No One to Trust, the first in the Hidden Identity series, was so full of suspense, action and drama that even the characters remarked it should be a movie.
Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she’s been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover story?
The search for her husband–and answers–takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn’t know who to believe.
Always thrilling, Lynette Eason outdoes herself in this taut, breakneck story of lies, loyalties, and love that will have readers up all night to discover the truth hidden in the shadows.
What I loved about No One to Trust is just that. I had no idea who was a hero and who was a villain. The author does a great job with characters and not making them confusing, and in that she created brilliant characters who might be playing for the wrong team. You just don’t know. Did that person get grazed because they were lucky, or because it was part of the plan? That is part of the process for every character, and you can’t get confident. Because you’ll be wrong.
The book is full of action, enough to be a movie I’d go see. I love David’s background and the people he works with. The villain is a dark, scary figure who does not glamorize the world of organized crime. He is not a fun guy and no one is safe. His way to relieve stress is to pet a boa. Snakes are everything to him, and part of his torture. I’m pretty squeamish about snakes and the author definitely plays on the fears. But it just made the villain all the worse to me, a good thing for the reader.
Woven throughout is that hint of romance but because it was built on fraud, can it last? Should it?
And if that isn’t enough, she also sheds light on domestic abuse and dysfunctional childhoods without overwhelming the plot.
I was hooked on No One to Trust from the beginning. It’s suspense at its best.
