Veiled Threat by Alice Loweecey is the third book in the “Falcone & Driscoll Investigation” mystery series. Publisher: Midnight Ink, February 2013
It’s private investigator Giulia Falcone’s second Christmas since leaving the convent. She’s happy to be spending it with Frank Driscoll, even if his switching from boss to boyfriend and back again is giving her whiplash. But Giulia’s holiday is darkened with disturbing news from her friends Anya and Laurel—their adopted baby girl has been kidnapped. When she learns that two kidnappings in nearby communities, both involving same-sex couples, ended with devastating fatalities, Giulia is more determined than ever to return the infant girl to her mothers. With Frank reluctantly backing her and the understaffed police offering little assistance, Giulia goes undercover to snare the kidnappers before they can do further harm.
This was very enjoyable and I love that Guilia is becoming a more confident person in charge of her life and will stand her ground in order to do that right thing and that she does when the agency take on a baby kidnapping case that has Guilia going undercover once again. The flow of the drama was a good one as each chapter spurned me onto the next as the suspense kept me turning the pages in the intriguing mystery. The side interaction with Guilia, Frank and Sidney was fun as well as the internal dialogue that Guilia has with herself. The ending left us with possibilities and I can’t wait to read the next book in this engaging series.
