About IMPOSTOR’S LURE:
Newlyweds Emma and Colin are suspicious when prosecutor Tamara McDermott is a no-show at a Boston dinner party. Matt Yankowski, head of HIT, Emma and Colin’s small, elite Boston-based team, is a friend of Tamara’s, and he needs them to find her.
In London, a woman who was supposed to meet Emma’s art-detective grandfather to talk about forgeries is discovered near death. Her husband, who stayed behind in Boston, has vanished. The couple’s connection to Tamara adds to the puzzle.
As the search for Tamara intensifies, a seemingly unrelated murder leads Emma, Colin and HIT deep into a maze of misdirection created by a clever, lethal criminal who stays one step ahead of them.
As Emma draws on her expertise in art crimes and Colin on his experience as a deep-cover agent, the investigation takes a devastating turn that tests the strengths of their families and friendships as well as their FBI colleagues as never before.
Impostor’s Lure is full of clever twists that will keep readers guessing right to the stunning conclusion!
Tamara stepped out of her rental car and breathed in the Maine air, cooler, fresher here by the sea. It was hot here, too, though. She nearly froze on the drive up from Boston when she’d turned on the air-conditioning and it cooled her sweat. Dumb to have walked up and down the Boston waterfront. She liked to walk and she had a lot on her mind, but she knew better. Boston could get just as hot and humid in August as Washington did.
She hadn’t thought this little adventure through. It wasn’t like her, but [her daughter] Adalyn…
What had she got herself into?
“Maybe nothing,” Tamara said aloud as she looked out at the sea, waves washing over sand and rocks. A good place to kayak, Graham Blackwood had told her. Then he’d promptly admitted he didn’t know anything about kayaking. He wanted to try while he was in Maine.
Kayak, get past a friend’s murder. Why the hell not?
Tamara spotted a seagull that on another day, under different circumstances, would have enthralled or at least amused her. Patrick, her ex-husband, considered them rats with wings. Killjoy. Good riddance to him.
Twenty-two years of marriage up in smoke.
“Blah. Don’t think about it.”
Except she’d been thinking about it most of the ninety-minute drive up to Maine. They’d told Adalyn it’d been an amiable split. Different paths now that they were in their late forties.
No mention of the cute young girlfriend.
Tamara didn’t like herself for giggling when she’d heard they broke up.
“More like cackling with joy.”
She didn’t want Patrick to be miserable, but she didn’t want him to find true love or whatever he was looking for with a shallow paralegal who looked good on his arm. Tamara didn’t want to think about what the gold digger was like in bed. Maybe she wasn’t being very evolved, but there it was. Good, maybe, for a prosecutor who’d never had much bad happen to her in her life to experience such raw emotion.
She shook off her thoughts. She needed to focus on why she was here.
Where was Graham Blackwood?
She’d pulled into a turnaround on a narrow road in front of his rental house—assuming she hadn’t made a wrong turn. It was on an isolated section of the coast near the Sisters of the Joyful Heart convent. Graham’s choice. He’d given her directions and asked her to keep their meeting private. Verity wanted to talk to you before her flight, but she’s already cutting it close. I’m staying in Maine for a few days. I’ll explain everything tomorrow. It concerns Adalyn. Verity and I are both fond of her.
Tamara didn’t see another soul, hear any cars—just the breeze and the wash of the sea. That’s what she wanted on her vacation. She’d return to Boston for dinner and be on her way for three weeks of bliss as soon as possible. She might even get a head start and leave tonight. She’d packed after her unnerving brunch with Adalyn.
Who are these Blackwoods, Adalyn?
