“What a corker of a book! Found myself sucked in right from the start, totally grabbing me. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, and it kept me guessing until the end.” Shell Baker, Crime Book Club
“A thought-provoking and gripping tale set I the Caribbean. Between the pages lurk murder, voodoo and people-smuggling … Jean Harrod writes with an authoritative hand. In the first few pages I was transported into the midst of a chokingly powerful scene. Deadly Deceit is a very readable and fascinating work of fiction, and can easily be read in one tension-filled sitting.” (Lovereading.com)
“An excellent story, beautifully written … one of those books that is difficult to put down and easy to pick up at any possible moment … the story is gripping and Harrod engages the reader with her fast-paced narrative. (Crimesquad.com)
