This had a pretty good story. It took a few chapters to really get into the story, but once it took off it really went. It was a pretty faced paced story (excluding a few parts) that really did keep you guessing. The character development was ok. I didn't really connect with any one character, but they were all believable characters. While the flashbacks do help to connect who each character is and how they are part of the story, they do seem to detract a bit from the overall story line. Some of the flashbacks were a bit long and gave a little more information than I felt was necessary. The mystery of whodunit really was done quite well. I never expected the ending, not even a clue... Which made me have to rethink everything I was figuring. When I read the paragraph that made me realize who was responsible I had to read a few times to make sure I was reading it right. I like those endings that really throw you off. And it wasn't a crazy ending, it was just unexpected. It was a pretty good story, but there were a few distractions. I'd say it was enjoyable to read and given the chance I'd read another of Cox's books.

This book is just average on everything. The suspense was lacking in most of the book. It was too much harlquen romance than a mysterious for me. but it did have its good spots. but overall its just an okay book that if your bored and have nothing else to read then grab this.

Darlene Cox has certainly written a deceitful maze of individuals in her book "Web of Deceit", Peter Brock has executed a complex plan of stealing diamonds that seems to fall apart when two people die. But did they die because of his scheme? And will his scheme come apart? Cox has developed a story that makes you ask these questions and wonder what's up, yet I felt that I couldn't care about the characters or what they were up to.

As you read Web of Deceit, you will know the title is perfect for this story. Darlene Cox has spun a web that any master spider would be happy to claim. Pietr Broknovich came to the United States early in life and changed his name to Peter Brock, the name he used as he worked his way through life conniving even those he seemed to love, and who certainly trusted him. His fellow workers knew Peter as a college graduate with all the necessary law degrees. Peter became one of the senior associates of Morrison and Brock, Attorney's at Law. Jack Morrison accepted him as a man that knew his profession and how to manage money in the most successful ways. Bernie was Peter's way through the office, telling him all that was news as well as the many things he needed to know from day-to-day. He couldn't exist without Bernie, or so she thought. And, in some ways he couldn't. Peter had met Jim Campbell years earlier in Belgium and Campbell eventually had Peter handle his finances. As far as Jim was concerned, Peter was creating a good fortune for his future, or so he thought. Peter was quite the ladies man making each of his lady friends think they were his own gal. Pauli Catarra fell for Peter head over heels as did Jim Campbell's wife, Delilah Campbell, each feeling they had Peters heart. Peter had his way with both of them but had to be careful. When some deaths strangely occurred unexpectedly, the police started investigating. All became suspects but Peter was such a good partner of Jack's that he seemed above suspicion. All the time, Peter manipulated his clients' funds to different accounts mostly abroad so he had plenty of money for his future. Some strange things occurred within the law offices as well as outside, some involving clients and some involving the clerks. "The plan," as Peter and several others in his life, was being carried out fully without the knowledge of most, a plan that would eventually determine who got what, how, when, and where. When Jack Morrison discovers some of the things Peter had done, he decided it had been enough and he interceded in Peter's part of "The Plan!" The story is filled with twists but the author does not get you lost. She goes back in time when necessary and explains all she has covered at that point. The ending will leave you satisfied but also looking forward to the next book of Darlene Cox. I highly recommend this book.
