A suspenseful, edge-of-seat thriller short story from the #1 Kindle and Top Ten Sunday times bestselling author, Scott Mariani

Deception can be deadly . . .

Kate, an attractive single parent, is in a desperate situation. Her young son Charlie suffers from a rare eye disease that will soon cause him to go blind unless he can receive the cutting-edge new treatment that’s offered by just one private clinic in London. The cost is out of Kate’s league and she needs to raise the cash – fast.

When her best friend suggests that she should find employment as a freelance female decoy, Kate initially rejects the idea. But realising what the potential earnings could mean for Charlie, she reluctantly goes to work, getting paid by female clients wanting to put the fidelity of their partners to the test. Business is good. It won’t be long before Kate has the money she needs.

But after being hired by a wealthy new client to investigate a suspected cheating husband, Kate’s world suddenly turns upside-down and she discovers too late that deception can have deadly consequences . . .


Coffee Break Read

#Decoy by #ScottMariani

It was ok. It wasn’t terrible and it wasn’t the best either.

The story features Kate, who to try and make money for her sons operation, becomes a Decoy. A woman who is hired by other women to see whether their partners are capable of cheating.

All seems to be going well until she meets her latest client; Geoffrey.

The ending was a little bit ridiculous for a story of this length. Agree with other reviewers that this would be a good feature length novel with more content.

Completed in a couple of hours, it’s a good novella to have with a cup of tea (or coffee!) 🙂
