"hidden agenda" by lisa harris

An intriguing novel that moves at breakneck speed, Hidden Agenda is sure to delight fans of suspense.

His cover is blown. Now his enemies are on his heels and closing in.

Michael 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 Olivia Hamilton--the daughter of the man who wants him dead.

This nonstop chase from Christy Award-winning Lisa Harris will leave you breathless.

I picked up Hidden Agenda on a Sunday afternoon, and after reading for just a few hours, I turned the final page. The novel begins with a bang (literally), and the intense pace continues to the end, making this 300-page novel a very quick read.

The story itself, about an undercover cop and the grown children of a prominent official in a drug cartel, is incredibly entertaining, if a bit confusing at times due to the number of characters (mainly bad guys) who are mentioned but not necessarily seen. I had a hard time keeping track of which bad guy was which—but at least I knew who was bad and who was good!

There is a romance subplot, but it's pretty understated. Basically, there's not enough romance to annoy readers who prefer straight suspense, but there's enough to placate readers who (like me!) vastly prefer their fiction to have at least a bit of romance. 4 stars.

Note: This is the third book in Harris' Southern Crimes series, but it works as a stand-alone novel.

Buy the book.
