A Current Deception

by: Arleen Alleman

Investigative reporter, Darcy Farthing, is a strong woman with even stronger opinions and convictions based on her science background and humanist views. In this novel she joins husband, Mick Clayton, and other family and friends for a relaxing honeymoon and wedding cruise around Australia. It doesn’t take long for drama and trauma to invade their vacation. A mysterious infestation of yellow crazy ants, an Australian invasive species, yand a food-borne pathogen plague an innocent woman from Kansas traveling with her twenty-year class reunion group. Before long, the injuries caused by the ants and escalating crimes, including a frightening hit and run death on the street in Adelaide force Darcy into investigative mode. Twists, surprises, and trauma abound before Darcy discovers the identity of a world class computer hacker and master of disguise intent on revenge related to a twenty-year-old crime. Woven through the murder-mystery, are subplots involving Darcy’s daughter Rachael and granddaughter, her ex-husband and his fiancé, Sidney, and partners, Don and Charlie with their gifted daughter, Penelope.
