Ambitious newspaper journalist Savannah O'Neill will do anything for a story, even if it means pretending to be a prostitute in Sydney's most exclusive brothel. She's there on a tip-off that underage girls are being held illegally and kept compliant with illicit drugs. What's more, unidentified bodies of young women have turned up in Sydney Harbour, and at least one of them is linked to the brothel.
Detective Will Rutledge has vowed to destroy the man he holds responsible for his brother's suicide. Vince Maranoa is the kingpin of Sydney's illegal drug industry: He's also the owner of the city's most exclusive brothel. Working undercover with the New South Wales Drug Enforcement Agency, Will is determined to put Maranoa behind bars.
When Savannah and Will cross paths at the brothel, there's an instant attraction, despite the fact she presumes he's a cohort of the crime boss and Will assumes she's a prostitute under Maranoa's employ.
With both of them determined to pursue their personal agendas to infiltrate the covert life of Maranoa, they will both be left gasping when the brothel's secrets are finally revealed....

2/5 stars. Okay story and characters at a high level, but lots of eye rolls for the ridiculous details and coincidences. Some romance (hot but brief).
Savannah is so stupid about putting herself in danger over and over and over again she’s basically suicidal, and she repeatedly defends it at first and then says she “wasn’t thinking”.
Her boss, a security guard from work, her boyfriend, her boyfriend’s dad, her brother AND her front page story about murder and human trafficking and drugs are all coincidentally connected to the same business?

The Deception is the 5th book in the Munro Family series by Chris Taylor. Yet again, another great book! I love this series. I am currently on my 2nd time through the entire series. i would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys suspense romance.
Narration by Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard was very good. They get better and better as the series go on.
HEA and no cliffhanger.
