Malicious Desires

A Sam Parker Mystery

As a private investigator, Samantha Parker has seen her share of darkness, but nothing could have prepared her for the evil she was about to encounter. She’s been assigned to locate a sixteen-year-old boy who has run away from home to meet up with a gaming buddy he met online. With a frantic mother to deal with and few leads to go on, it’s not going to be easy. As she uncovers each clue, she discovers a path that leads to a dark underworld that she didn’t know existed, and it turns out that the boy isn’t the only one she’ll need to save.

As the third book in Maria Pease’s Sam Parker Mystery series, this heart-racing mystery takes Sam into the darkest depths of society. No one is who they appear to be and the secrets that are revealed will make you wonder if you really know anyone at all.

Malicious Desires, the third book in Maria Pease’s series featuring private investigator Sam Parker did not disappoint.

I love a good mystery and Pease’s writing style parallels all my favorite female mystery/sleuth writers. Sam’s capers will keep you smiling and there is just enough spice between her and her handsome love interest, Jake, to keep you turning the pages. Having grown up in Southern California, I visited the Temecula area quite frequently and I enjoy the references to many of the landmarks of this area.
Thank you Ms. Pease, keep them coming!
