Labyrinth of Lies (Triple Threat #2) by Irene Hannon

My thoughts:
As the title indicates, the story is a labyrinth. Complex. Twisting. Elusive identities. The author has developed likable characters whose individual complexities befuddle the reader lending to the intricately woven plot.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and the setting of a posh St. Louis boarding school was really nice. It takes place during a very cold Winter. Undercover detectives working as a teacher and a student were fun to imagine. 

The three Reilly sisters' loving bond is evidenced as two interact with their sister,  Detective Cate, in Labyrinth of Lies. When I read and reviewed Triple Threat #1, Point of Danger, I first met the three sisters and Eve was the main character. 

Murder. Missing students. Drugs. Mexican cartel. Innocent bystanders. Romance that is sweet but has a back story that classifies the story (in my opinion) for older teens and adults. 

The convoluted path through the story was not discoverable until near the end of the book. I thoroughly enjoy this book and Irene Hannon continues to be a favorite author. I look forward to Triple Threat #3 to see what happens next to the other Reilly sister.

About the book: When the daughter of a high-profile businessman disappears from an exclusive girls' boarding school, police detective Cate Reilly is tapped for an undercover assignment. It doesn't take her long to realize that beneath the veneer of polish and wealth, things are not as they seem at Ivy Hill Academy. But the biggest surprise of all? The only man she ever loved is also working at the school.

Zeke Sloan has never forgotten Cate, but now isn't the best time for their paths to cross again. When their two seemingly disparate agendas begin to intertwine--and startling connections emerge among the players--the danger escalates significantly. But who is the mastermind behind the elaborate ruse? And how far will they go to protect their house of cards?

Queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon invites you to scale the heights of human folly and plumb the depths of the human heart in this second gripping book in the Triple Threat series.
