More than one murder has been committed, all with the same underlying clues, and dead bodies leave a trail for investigation. A contract is out to kill a man, but the wrong man is murdered, leaving former Austin police sergeant Chase Alexander as the primary target.
While desperately attempting to save his own life, Chase takes matters into his own hands. He begins his mission by searching for his missing father, then goes
back into the past, and digs up years of family secrets. Throughout his journey into the unknown to answer the mysterious questions leading to the murders, Chase finds more-and-more lies.
Time was running out, and answers needed to be found to crucial questions in order to solve the case. Why did the criminals want to kill Chase? Who was the contract really for? Where was Chase's father? What lies, and secrets did Chase find? Who were the two hitmen, and who hired them? Why were other people murdered, and where did the
names of the deceased lead to?
I recommend "Threads Of Deception" to all mystery lovers. The characters in this riveting thriller electrify the pages that are covered in conspiracy, and betrayal. James Fletcher chose a title that fits this head-snapping novel like the perfect glove to fit his hand. This book is filled with nonstop twists as good as a reader would find in the series "Murder She Wrote." The clever author introduces nail-biting suspense page-after-page, then leaves the ending with a great surprise. "Threads Of Deception" is clearly a steady engrossing thriller that leaves you on the edge of your seat. The reader could feel the same escalating tension as if viewing one of Alfred Hitchcock's finest.
Before the final closing of the curtains, drama soaks the pages in this gripping thriller that gives the reader the same creepy chills as if viewing "Death Wish."

“Threads of Deception is a superbly woven tale of deception. Mr. Fletcher has a knack for drawing the reader into the mystery and lives of each individual character. Murders, dead bodies and a cold case finally resolved will give the reader a real challenge to figure out “who dunnit.” I would highly recommend this novel to readers of crime and mystery novels.
I rate this mystery novel five stars!”
