Overflowing with lies, deceit, dangerous (and illegal) weapon sales, and extramarital affairs, Behind the Veil weaves a tale of riveting suspense and never-ending intrigue.

Jefferson Myles, a sucessful businessman and CEO of his own securities firm, might be in over his head. For one thing, he's embezzling money from his clients to fund "Operation Stingray" — an organization headed by Robert Santiago that steals ammunition from a military base to sell to a rebel group in Honduras. To make matters worse, Jefferson is cheating on his wife with his married neighbor, Linda Montgomery. And to top it all off, Blake, Linda's husband, knows about affair and knows that Jefferson is involved in some kind of illegal activity.

Gradually, some secrets are revealed that put people's lives at stake. Margo, Jefferson's wife, finally discovers the real reason why her husband has been distant and uncaring. As someone attempts to kill Jefferson, surprising truthsbegin to surface and Margo must decide what is best for her and her family. Filled with suspense, tension, and deeply engaging human emotions, Behind the Veil will hold readers captive until its exhilarating end.

Very good from beginning to the end, hard to put down. I felt sorry for Margo, who was betrayed by her husband, neighbor and best friend, but kept her family together. Jefferson got what he deserved. I purchased this book from the flea market and was not disappointed at all.

Behind the Veil was like riding on a roller coaster with the anticipation steadily building, building, building. The twists and turns left me wanting to know what was to come. Needless to say, I couldn't put the book down until I read the last page! The characters are well developed be they the 'good', 'bad' or the 'underdog' in this novel. The descriptions enabled me to really picture scenes in my mind without even trying hard. It is well-paced and moves right along and is filled with so many things such as surprise, intrigue, love, suspense, faith, danger, friendship, forgiveness, loyalty, betrayal, etc... It's filled with so much! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it is one of the 'good' ones. One that will be remembered long after the last word is read.

I have just finished reading Suzette Perkins's Behind the Veil. What a great 'read.' I have been teaching American literature for over 25 years. I know the canon well. This book belongs with D. H. Lawrence, Ernest J. Gaines, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and countless other giants in American literature. I am using Perkins's 'Prologue' to teach my freshman writers about exposition, description, and the use of invigorating 'verbs' of action. Suzetta is a master of dialog, character development, and suspense. I can't wait to read her next ten books. She's truly 'up and coming.' Booker T. Anthony, Ph.D.

This book was about playing games in life. You have to know how to play and when to play. It was exciting and kept you on the edge.

Behind the Veil is an excellent book. It's a real page-turner with lots of twist and turns from start to finish. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading more books from Ms. Perkins in the near future.
