Following her divorce, Brodie Farrell opens up the
Look For Something? Shop. Brodie takes on clients seeking
to find things or people. When a woman asks Brodie to find
a man, she agrees to accept the case because the client
insists the person in the picture conned her out of money.
A few days later, Brodie locates the mark and provides the
information to her customer.
Not long after completing her assignment, Brodie sees
a picture of the man she found accompanied by an article in
which the newspaper states he was tortured and killed.
Brodie admits to the police her role in the victim's death
only to learn he remains alive in a hospital under watch.
She asks for absolution and receives it from the victim and
soon Brodie and Daniel become friends, joining forces to
track down the person who hired her. Soon the plot
thickens as they find the torturers who thought Daniel was
part of a scheme to kidnap a child.
This novel is quite different than the Castlemane
series, but remains a solid tale. Brodie and Daniel are
interesting characters with strong moral cores that takes
them outside the law to do what each one feels is right.
ECHOES OF LIES is a combination character story packed
inside a Bond-like thriller.
