Rachel receives an anonymous tip that Mallory is alive. The woman's shaky voice tells her that the child is living with a family in Atlanta. While Rachel travels to Atlanta, her colleague Stacy investigates a child-adoption ring that might have a connection to Mallory's disappearance. Stacy soon disappears, and the search takes on twists that make Rachel's hunt as difficult as it has ever been.
The book is a good one but not my favorite of the series. The characters that I love are all part of the hunt. Boyfriend Mike continues to help Rachel, and their relationship always helps soften her character. I am glad she is wrapping up her search for Mallory here though, because I believe the story-line is getting a bit stale. I am a fan of Hohenstein's writing and am glad that she tied things up for us. I am hoping she comes up with another character as strong and likable as Rachel Scott and am looking forward to meeting him/her in the near future.
If you have read the first three books in the series, this is a must. If not, I highly recommend starting at book one before you get to Deceptive Measures, but don't miss the series.
