"Web of Deceit is a must read for any fan of suspense." --Seattle Examiner
Ms. Sleeman batted a thousand on this one. I highly recommend it."--TheSuspenseZone.com
A killer is lurking in the shadows . . .
FBI agent Nina Brandt loves her job. Sure, she's made some enemies, but she knows she's making the world a better place. It's lonely at times, but she has good friends to get her through. It's a good life.
Little does she guess that her past is about to come back and haunt her . . . in more ways than one.
When Navy SEAL Quinn Stone learns that his geeky younger brother, Ty, hacked into the TSA's No Fly List, he would rather take a bullet than go to his former fiancée, Nina Brandt, for help. Five years ago, she resented his commitment to his SEAL team and gave him an ultimatum--her or the team. He chose the team. But now, he and his brother have no other choice . . . not if he doesn't want to see the kid behind bars.
Nina has finally moved on, but she can't resist Ty's plea for help . . . especially when he drops a bomb that could rock national security. The laptop he'd used to hack the TSA has been stolen. Fearing terrorists would do just about anything to get their hands on this list, Nina agrees to take the case to her team. After all, this will become an FBI matter and Quinn's help won't be needed . . . as much as she's starting to want it.
But the thief has more on his mind than just the list. He's been waiting for a chance to get back at the woman who sent him to prison two years ago. And he intends to make her pay--in the most painful way possible . . .

WEB OF SHADOWS
Wiley didn’t care anymore, he just wanted people to pay, especially FBI agent Nina Brandt. Talk of terrorists the last few days, made Nina jumpy
she felt like someone was watching her. Even this early in morning.
Lt Quinn Stone seven year career as a Seal, and loving it all. He was off kilter since the explosion in Afghanistan. Panic call from his Mom, his seventeen year old brother Ty was going for rebellious award, to come home. He had hacked into TheNoFly list, and that means jail. To top it off his computer is missing with that list still on it. You’re the only one with law enforcement to make this go away, meaning his ex wife Nina. To say this is a gripping plot, so devious, how will they stop it, before Nina and others
are trapped in his plans. Great series, a page turner that’s for sure.
An absolutely incredible romantic suspense novel!
The characters in this book are fantastic! Both Nina Brandt and Quinn Stone have been extremely well developed and their family backgrounds are slowly revealed. This really to make me feel like I was getting to know people I have just met. I really enjoyed seeing how things, from each of their family’s worked to shape who they are and how they dealt with different situations throughout the story.
The fact that we met the bad guy from the beginning and knew what he was trying to accomplish all along added an extra level of excitement for me. The plot was so well presented that I was kept on my toes trying to see how the good guys were going to figure things out.
I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.
I received a free eBook copy of this novel from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
Deadly Frame Up!
Once again, Susan, has delivered a fantastic thriller! This is the second book of her series on female FBI agents but you don't have to have read the first one. This one stands alone as does the first one. I love the way I am grabbed into the book from the beginning and can't put it down until I'm finished! The characters are so real and they run the gamut of emotions so you connect with them right away. Another thing I love about Susan's books is that she writes the villain's thoughts and feelings, along with the hero's and heroine's! It's great to get inside that twisted mind and see how it works! The story is so much better that way! Susan does SO much research too and as you read, you can see that! In this book, Nina, is the FBI agent. It's just a normal day for her when out of the blue, her ex-boyfriend shows up with his brother in tow and demands to see her! She doesn't really want to see him as they didn't part on the best of terms and she's been trying to get over him ever since! Why is he demanding to see her? He's a SEAL and his brother is in high school! Little does she know that the reason is going to start a threat to national security! Quinn, her ex, just got off a secret mission, and found out his brother, Ty, did some serious computer hacking that caused a possible threat to national security! He has to go to Nina for help, even though he knows she doesn't want to see him! When it's discovered that the computer Ty used to hack the "No Fly List" of the government was stolen and winds up in the hands of a demented guy Nina put in prison (but is now out), chaos ensues and Nina is framed for the crime.....a game of cat & mouse with deadly consequences begins. You will be so involved in this book that you'll be lucky if you go to bed at night! I, for one, couldn't put this book down! I had to see how it ended as fast as possible! I highly recommend it!
