Houses of Deception, the 6th book in The Madeline Dawkins Series, finds Madeline and Mike teaming up with Russell Barnett. Russell, the antagonist from a previous book in the series, is desperate to find Dylan. With nowhere else to turn, he asks Madeline and Mike for help. What starts out as a missing persons case quickly spirals out of control into a kidnapping, with a demand for ransom.
This novel is awesome. I loved the characters and their development throughout the story. Being the 6th book in the series, I wish I had read the others first, but there is another background information to catch the reader up on what has happened previously. Cynthia Hamilton is an excellent writer, drawing the reader into the story from the first chapter. This one kept me guessing until the end. A great thriller that I couldn’t put down!
