MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Subterfuge – deceit used in order to achieve one’s goal.
A mob boss and a cartel are in battle to be the top group in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. They are against each other until the leader of the cartel decides that they could work together with his contacts and the mob bosses’ ideas and contacts, they could rule the Los Angeles area, and both get richer than they already are.
Detective Tom Stone and his team are in a battle to bring the cartel and the mob boss down and put them behind bars before more bodies show up or more drugs make it to their town. He’s a determined detective that won’t rest until he can bring them all down and help the lone survivor of the submarine wreckage that was found. Detective Stone is determined to help Mr. Delgado, a man that was taken along with his son at gun point to work for the mob boss.
I really enjoyed this story. It is action packed and engaging from the first page until the end. The characters are entertaining, determined and focused while working to get the needed information to bring down the drug dealers. I give this story a 5-star review and look forward to more Tom Stone Detective novels to come. If you enjoy a fast paced, action packed, police detective stories, you should pick up Subterfuge.
