The intrepid spunk and dogged determination of Livvy finds her match in Trey's grounded scientific approach. The characters are vivid, the mystery is compelling, and the punch line at the end will have the reader eager for the next book in the Operation Delphi series."-Carolina Montague, author of Forever Green, Forever Hunted"Expect Deception starts off with a bang and never lets up, as a psychic defense team matches wits with a Nazi operative bent on destroying the U.S. Navy. The pacing is brisk, the wizardry warfare unique. Readers will be swept away by this spellbinding tale of espionage and illusion."-Patricia Simpson, award-winning author of Gabriel's Daughter, Imposter Bride, and Spellbound"This look into the world of 'The Greatest Generation' has the heart-warming feel of a cozy mystery with the kick of a good thriller . . . you may just find yourself believing in the power of the unknown. Good may triumph over evil, but not without grave cost."-Christine London, award-winning author of novels with a "Brit Twist""Ainsworth has crafted a fascinating series that drew me right in and kept me enthralled. Having grown up in Philadelphia, the landmarks are familiar and I found myself researching some of the tactics used by the enemy to see if the Third Reich recruited psychics and dark magic . . . and was able to find other articles that seem to reference similar information, Nazi Occultism. This series is inventive, creative and a unique glimpse into the home front during World War II."-Kathy Nester, book reviewer, NetGalley and A Penny For Your Thoughts
