Amara Alvarez is a homicide detective in Texas. A teen boy is found dead in a water park, and Amara has to figure out why and how. This story deals with hackers and is pretty engaging, but Amara is kind of unlikeable, and is hard to sympathize with. ( )

After proving herself with the Cotulla case as told in Collision of Lies, tough as nails but endearing Amara Alvarez has moved to the Homicide Division. Her first real case will prove a challenge as will fitting in with her seasoned colleagues. The case of Zachary Coleman, a teen who turned up dead at a water park, has quite a few puzzling aspects. Amara is an independent an savvy cop, but she knows when to ask for help. From the title and the cover, it is clear the case involves cyber crime. But this case has more twists and turns , so Amara has to focus on certain clues.
Jeremiah *Starsky* Peckham is an ally in the squad room and offers his help, although Amara usually opts to go it alone. The relationship Starsky and Amara began in Collision of Lies goes a step further here. It was fun and a welcome break from the tenseness of the case to experience their banter. We get another peek at the Alvarez family and how they pull together in a crisis.
I learned a lot about cyber crime and how the police deal with it. This was a real page turner and hard to put down. I liked it for its realistic characters, quick pace and excellent research. I would consider this a clean read, although some characters are Christian.

I was so glad to see that there was a book after Collision of Lies so we could read more about Amara Alvarez. This story is a continuation of the first book and I do recommend reading them in order. Amara is a great female lead as she is strong, independent, and smart. I enjoyed the relationship between Amara and “Starsky” and found the characters to once again be intriguing. I liked the twists and turns in this novel that always kept me guessing. I think that themes of faith were subtler and perhaps lost a bit in the suspense, but the novel is clean and enjoyable to read. Overall, I liked this novel and look forward to more by this author!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishing. Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own. ( )

There was a great deal about this book I loved- it had an amazing plot, varied characters, and some fun dialogue and character POV.
But the thing is, there was a good bit of undesirable, and very secular material that was quite questionable and unacceptable.
It was not always so much what some of the characters said, but what they didn't say, as well as thoughts discussed, but left unfinished.
Let me break this down y'all:
Amara Alvarez is a new homicide detective hired by the Los Angeles Police Department. She had a major previous case in the first book with a different police division, that leads to her promotion to the Homicide dept.
Amara becomes the target of undue workplace jealousy, and quickly reveals her overly hot, though slightly controlled temper and caustically sarcastic tongue under stress. Not the best of female role models.
Although Dios, the Spanish word for God is mentioned several times, Amara doesn't seem to have much more than a shallow relationship with him, and neither do her male detective sidekick, Starsky, or her mother.
"Suc*", and "screwe*" are used several times each. Amara's mom has an illness, and her boyfriend takes care of her, but she hints with a wink very vaguely that they may be shacking, and plan to get married "soon".
There is a running gag of Starsky "jokingly" mentioning wearing a very skimpy swimsuit to detract any potential suspects' attention from Amara, who is wearing a one-piece suit. Another character is mentioned as wearing a bikini.
A character is found dead, but there are no graphic details or gore.
Starsky mentions a typical worldly saying about hanging out together all night and watching TV or doing something else.
Hackers flippantly discuss robbing companies and businesses online.
This author and frankly the publisher has left a bad taste in my mouth with this book. I really hate when I have to reach for my trusty highlighter, pen and whiteout this often in a book.
It simply shouldn't be, and made me feel like I was editing the rough draft of a manuscript, not reviewing a published book.
I'd expect to see this on the shelves of a typical secular retail store, but not a Christian bookstore, for sure. This book had promise, and these things could have easily been edited out, and it could have been a 5 star. But due to various unChristian content, sadly I can only give it 1.
I received this book free of charge from Revell in exchange for an honest and unbiased review, and the thoughts and conclusions above are my own. ( )

Network of Deceit is book two in the Amara Alvarez series. I really liked Amara in the first book and enjoyed getting to know her on a deeper level in this book as well as some of the other characters. Even though this could be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading Collision of Lies first.

In Network of Deceit, Amara is assigned her first case as a detective in homicide. When a boy dies at a local water park in what appears to be an accidental death, Amara questions foul play. What she uncovers is quite a tangled web of deceit where she is left with as many questions as answers. Although I did find the story to get bogged down at times with details, I was invested in the story and intrigued with the plot and I knew I wanted to keep reading until the end to find out what happens. There were definitely some surprises and twists I did not see coming.

I was given a copy of this book by the author and publisher. All opinions expressed are entirely my own. ( )
