Savage Deception Review
In Savage Deception, R.T. Wolfe hooked me from the first page. I wanted to know why Nickie Savage was so deeply emotional about saving girls from underage prostitution. After all, she is a police Detective and able to control her feelings to do her job. She is involved with Duncan Reed, a handsome, rich and passionate artist with an eidetic memory who is willing to help her solve her cases. Their relationship suffers because Nickie can’t resolve her past until she finds the truth about the present. R.T. complicates the story again and again. I didn’t see the lies coming from every side although I did dislike the right people.
R.T. Wolfe enjoys creating diverse characters and twining them together in the midst of an intelligent mystery and a heart encompassing romance. It’s not uncommon to find dark chocolate squares in R.T.’s candy dish, her Golden Retriever at her feet and a few caterpillars spinning their cocoons in their terrariums on her counters. R.T. loves her family, gardening, eagle-watching and can occasionally be found viewing a flyover of migrating whooping cranes.
I don’t want to spoil the ending by telling you how Nickie and Duncan find the clues and fit them together. I can assure you that I will be reading the next offering in this series.
