Undercover cop Michael Hunt found himself wanted by the government, the police and the drug cartel. A fugitive presumed dead by the people who loved him most, his partner eliminated, he was left battered and alone in his fight to stay alive and battle the forces of unspeakable evil.
Olivia Hamilton was doing just fine as a reporter and guardian to her deaf brother Ivan. Till a slew of emails, murder, and deception turned her world upside down. Discovering the father they loved was the kingpin of a ruthless drug ring, coupled with helping a stranger escape the death sentence hanging over his head, the siblings were on the run trying to stay one step ahead of their pursuers. The door of life they once knew slammed shut. No turning back.
At the intersection where the danger that loomed for the law enforcer crossed the peril threatening the law-breaker’s son and daughter their lives irreversibly entwine, leaving no choice but to trust each other.
Corrupt criminals chasing them. Crooked cops lurking in the shadow of dark heinous crimes. Death knocking on too many doors. A calculated kidnapping wrapped in betrayal, greed, ambition, family lies and family ties putting the very ones they wanted to protect in harms way. “What if doing what was right turned out not to be worth the cost?” was the question hot on their minds.
You’ll be wondering the same when every move closer to cracking the case is littered with bloodshed and violence. How many more people will die or get hurt? Maybe, it was time for Michael to turn himself in. Time to walk away from it all before more victims pay the price in the line of justice. Or could one more day in the heat of danger make all the difference in the world?
Wouldn’t want to ruin it for you but I can reveal this: they went forward in faith trusting God to the very end.
Hidden Agenda is the fast-paced, action packed conclusion to Southern Crimes series that grabbed my attention from the beginning and never let go. The final installment was enriched by the connection to the other two books but was solid as a stand alone volume. It held me spellbound as the intriguing characters brought the enthralling drama to life.
What I especially loved about this novel is how Lisa Harris brilliantly strung together threads of suspense, love, and life lessons into a story that captures your heart, keeps you at the edge of your seat with surprise twists and turns, while inspiring empathy, faith and the courage to seek the truth. The truth that indeed sets us free.
Every page swept me on roller coaster ride of emotion and anticipation. My heart raced. My heart melted. My heart danced. My heart broke. With all my heart I highly recommend it!
