Calculated Deception by K.T. Lee Book Summary

Dr. Ree Ryland must work with the FBI to catch a criminal before time runs out in this charming, character-driven read.

Dr. Ree Ryland is an engineering professor who loves her job and plays by the rules. Her life is reassuringly predictable – until an enemy hiding in plain sight decides her squeaky-clean reputation is the perfect cover to commit a crime.

When Agent Parker Landon and his FBI team discover that someone at the university has been procuring military-grade hardware by disguising it as test equipment, all evidence points to Ree. After the FBI intercepts a shipment that puts Ree in the clear, Parker is forced to tell her that she’s being used as a pawn by an unseen enemy. And now she’s in that enemy’s crosshairs. Ree turns down the protective detail offered by the FBI and insists on using her inside knowledge to help with the investigation. Parker is leery of bringing a civilian on to the team, but he’s surprised at how much fun he has working with Ree, even as he tries to keep her out of harm’s way.

Parker, Ree and the FBI team find increasingly worrying evidence that someone is quietly acquiring everything they need to cause destruction on a massive scale. Now, they must uncover the motive and identity of the killer hiding among Ree’s friends and colleagues before it’s too late.

Great mysteryWell written. Loved the book.Score: 5/5

Mystery woman in scienceThe author is a female scientist writing to encourage other women in the scientific field. I applaud this desire to encourage women into these fields because we have been shunted away from science in our schools in my experience. That needs to halt so that we are enabled by our training and wits to hold responsible positions in a scientifically oriented society! Kudos to the author for her moxie and for presenting a reasonable mystery without foolish entanglements, no Bond girls in this tale!.Score: 4/5

This book is a page turnerI have just finished this book and it is excellent and a very difficult book to put down. It was refreshing to see a strong woman lead who is smart and not broke. Also it gives examples on how a female engineer can make a difference..Score: 5/5

Calculated DeceptionOK book. Several areas were very slow read. The outcome was revealed to early in the book, which lead to no suspense later in the book..Score: 3/5

Excellent Read!This was a very exciting book to read, I would highly recommend this cozy book to anyone who likes an interesting mystery....Score: 5/5

Engaging, interesting, and authentic!One of the best mystery novels I’ve read in a long time! This is what happens when female authors write about female heroines- we get authentic stories with a lead who is both believable and relatable. Couldn’t put it down and so excited to read the next installment..Score: 5/5

Good thrillerExcept for the unnatural rearrangement of a professor’s office in middlebrow a semester and the ignoring of the mess her leaving while classes are in session, a well put together international criminal conspiracy halted in the nick of time. Having an engineer refer to probability between 1 and 10 was a jarring inconsistency. Story well told, characters interesting and well developed..Score: 5/5

Fun and suspensefulEnjoyed. Fun. Suspenseful..Score: 5/5
