A CIA action officer is released from prison. A Chief Justice is murdered, and the Law Society is scrutinizing Jade Thyme’s conduct. Jade’s life can’t get much worse until she is coerced into finding an elusive double agent. Tangled in lies and political agendas, high speed chases and sticky bombs, can Jade outplay a dangerous Hungarian assassin before her own life is terminated?
“Spy Girls is adrenaline-fueled, adventure packed with heart-pounding action, unexpected twists, and a riveting plot that keeps readers hooked from the first page. With lives hanging in the balance and loyalties questioned, trust in each other is the only way to survive. But even the strongest bonds can be tested when faced with external threats and personal demons.”

Debra Purdy Kong review
This second installment in the Jade and Sage series picks up Jade’s story six months later. She’s just opened her own law firm when she learns that her father’s died of an overdose. Not known to be a drug user, she and her sister Sage dig a little deeper. Their efforts only add to troubling questions with disturbing consequences and a whole lot of danger.
This fascinating, intricately woven plot involves stories from two time periods. The second involves their deceased mother, Genie, when she was a young woman and in love with a gangster named Oscar. It’s a poignant story showing how the trauma of earlier generations often has a long-lasting effort on others.
As with the first book, the Victoria setting is beautifully described and we also see a little of Vancouver in this book. Dealer’s Child is an engrossing page-turner and thoroughly enjoyable read. Highly recommended.
