#BlogTour | #BookReview | SUBTERFUGE (TOM STONE DETECTIVE STORY #5) by Don Simkovich and Lon Casler Bixby @DonSimkovich @LonBixby (November 6th 2020) #Subterfuge #DetectiveTomStone @damppebbles #damppebblesblogtours

Hello and welcome to our stop on the Subterfuge blog tour!

Thank you very much to Emma @ Damppebbles, Dom Simkovich and Lon Casler Bixby for providing a copy of the book to [K]

The reviews below are 100% honest and all of her own views.


A wounded man, fiberglass wreckage, and mysterious blue barrels wash up on a secluded beach north of Los Angeles in Malibu, California. 

Detective Tom Stone jumps into action in this gripping thriller novel and uncovers human trafficking as drug smugglers try a new trick.

The Ojos Negros cartel forms an uneasy alliance with LA mob boss Frank DeVito. Using hidden sea caves as drop-off points, the new syndicate maneuvers to expand their brutal drug empire, and guns down anyone who stands in their way.

Stone and his team trail the lone survivor, Luis Delgado, who longs to return home to Mexico but is trapped in a deadly game of subterfuge. He vows revenge on the evil men who have destroyed his life and countless others with their greed.

The Detectives race to find Delgado and bring down the cartel, before another innocent victim is killed.

Uncover narco-subs plying the seas with page-turning action—and hold on for an explosive ending. 


Once I started this book I could not put down and flew through by the seat of my pants! 

After each chapter I had to read just a little more as something occurred that I just had to find out what happens next. I enjoyed the characters, I grew fond of Delgado and wanted to see him survive and succeed in his goals. 

After I have finished writing this review I will be investigating the previous books in this series so I can read them next and get to know the characters better.

This was the first I story I have read in the Tom Stone series, but if you want a non stop thrill ride, please pick up this book. I will definitely be recommending this series to my friends who like books of this genre.
