Malicious Desires

A teenager who loves video games.

The guy he met online

The nightmare he never expected.

As a private investigator, Samantha Parker has seen her share of darkness, but nothing could have prepared her for the evil she was about to encounter. She’s been assigned to locate a sixteen-year-old boy who has run away from home to meet up with a gaming buddy he met online. With a frantic mother to deal with and few leads to go on, it’s not going to be easy. As she uncovers each clue, she discovers a path that leads to a dark underworld that she didn’t know existed, and it turns out that the boy isn’t the only one she’ll need to save.

As the third book in Maria Pease’s Sam Parker Mystery series, this heart-racing mystery takes Sam into the darkest depths of society. No one is who they appear to be and the secrets that are revealed will make you wonder if you really know anyone at all.

“Another home run in the Malicious mystery series by Maria Pease.  Maria’s writing style, descriptions, and attention to the details provide your mind’s eye with enough information to be part of the witty Sam Parker’s shadow throughout each page.  Tastefully sexy, exciting, filled with unpredictable twists and turns will make it difficult to put the book down. You won’t have to read the first two books to enjoy Malicious Desires, but who wouldn’t want to be introduced to each of the main characters from the beginning?”
