Fresh Fiction Review

Heart of Deception
M.L. Malcolm

Reviewed by Sharon Galligar Chance
Posted April 25, 2011

Romance Suspense

After the tragic death of his beloved wife, Martha, Leo Hoffman felt he was doing the best thing for their daughter Maddy by sending her to New York where he thought she would be safe and loved. Little did Leo know that Amelia, the woman he quickly married in order for Maddy to be allowed in the United States, would abandon the little girl in a convent school while she carried on her scandalous lifestyle. He was a little busy trying to stay alive as World War II began to rage around him.

In M.L. Malcolm's new book, HEART OF DECEPTION, she continues the fascinating story of Leo Hoffman and the depths and extremes he will go to in order to keep his family safe. This sequel to Heart of Lies is a little slower paced than the first book, giving the reader a chance to experience more fully the heartache and fear that Leo experiences, as well as the bravery as he struggles to return to the one person he loves unconditionally -- his daughter Maddy.

From M. L. Malcolm, the acclaimed author of Heart of Lies, comes a powerful sequel that spans the years from World War II to the turbulent 1960s—the riveting story of a family struggling with choices forced upon them by war . . . and the consequences that will take a generation to unfold.

Aman of many contradictions, Leo Hoffman is a Hungarian national with a French passport, a wealthy businessman with no visible means of support, and a devoted father who hasn't seen his daughter in years. He is also a spy.

Recruited by the Allies to help lay the groundwork for their invasion of North Africa, Leo intends to engage in as little espionage as possible—just enough to earn his American citizenship so he can get to New York and reunite with his daughter, Maddy. But while Leo dodges death in France and Morocco, Maddy is learning shocking truths about her father's mysterious past—haunting knowledge that will compel her down her own dangerous path of deception and discovery.
