Deceived is a gripping psychological thriller that mazes through the deepest, darkest emotions of human mind through the story of a vulnerable girl who treads in the mist of deception bred from a long unforgiven betrayal.
After many years a book came that forced me to read till I complete it. And then read a couple of chapters of another book after it as I was so disturbed that there was no way I was going to sleep without having something else in my mind.
First things first, I loved the cover. The bloody leg works excellently with the bright yellow glossy font.
The thing that I really liked was the author gives a brief explanation of the difference between psychopaths and sociopaths. I did not know this, not only was reading this informative, but the author assures that we would be seeing both in the next pages, which increased my excitement to read this book.
The story starts at a slow pace, thus giving the readers a chance to get to know all characters. It then keeps increasing this really keeps the thrill alive.
I liked the way the author sets the story line in a way that the readers have a clue as to who would be the serial killer, while the protagonist has no idea. This makes the reader all the more invested in the character. I found myself mentally screaming at Allison to see what she was so oblivious to!
If you are one of those who get their thrill from reading a book filled with murders, this is the book for you! I rate this book a perfect 4 out of 4.
