Book Review: Hidden Agenda

19 Jan

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

721929Michael Hunt is alive — and on the run. Presumed dead by friends and family, the undercover assignment he’s been working for the past eight months has just been blown. With a hit out on his life and corruption inside the Atlanta police department, Michael finds himself hunted by both the cartel and the law. His only hope is the daughter of the man who wants him dead.

My Impressions:

From the first pages of Lisa Harris’ Southern Crimes series, I have been anxiously waiting on any information on the death of Michael Hunt. His story line has been an integral part of the series begining with Dangerous Passage and continuing in the second book, Fatal Exchange. Finally my wait was over as I dug into the final installment in the series, Hidden Agenda. Michael is very much alive and working to blow the lid off a drug cartel. But his cover is blown and he is running for his life with the help of the two grown children of his money-laundering boss.

Lisa Harris creates page-turning romantic suspense with relatable characters who find a place in the reader’s heart. I especially liked that though the main characters were Christians, they struggled with trust, feelings of loss and betrayal. And God’s presence is central to the action. The many escapes from dangerous situations were treated as His intervention rather than coincidence or the characters’ efforts. Themes include the consequences of secrets and the struggle to know what is true. Being a Georgia gal, I also appreciated the setting of the novel — from the Golden Isles through the streets of Atlanta and up to the North Georgia mountains.

A good ending to a great series, I recommend Hidden Agenda. And though it could be read as a standalone, you really should read books 1 and 2 first.


Audience: adults.
