Deception (Powell Book 3) by Bill Ward is a brisk, straight-to-the-point international conspiracy thriller that held my attention from beginning to end. The author develops the plot well, brings it to a satisfying conclusion, and mostly avoids the cliches of the genre. The writing style is very bare bones. While the wording and short chapters lack much in the way of descriptive detail, they make for an easy read and a lightning quick pace. There's very little character development, which limits emotional investment in the story, but readers who love plot-driven thrillers will find much to enjoy.
