Master of suspense and New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers delivers an exhilarating page-turner where the disappearance of a federal prosecutor launches the latest high-stakes case for FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan.

Newlyweds Emma and Colin are suspicious when prosecutor Tamara McDermott is a no-show at a Boston dinner party. Matt Yankowski, head of HIT, Emma and Colin’s small, elite Boston-based team, is a friend of Tamara’s, and he needs them to find her.

In London, a woman who was supposed to meet Emma’s art-detective grandfather to talk about forgeries is discovered near death. Her husband, who stayed behind in Boston, has vanished. The couple’s connection to Tamara adds to the puzzle.

As the search for Tamara intensifies, a seemingly unrelated murder leads Emma, Colin and HIT deep into a maze of misdirection created by a clever, lethal criminal who stays one step ahead of them.

As Emma draws on her expertise in art crimes and Colin on his experience as a deep-cover agent, the investigation takes a devastating turn that tests the strengths of their families and friendships as well as their FBI colleagues as never before.

Impostor’s Lure is full of clever twists that will keep readers guessing right to the stunning conclusion!

I received this book from NetGalley to provide an honest review. All opinions are my own in this review. I have only read one other book by Carla Neggers so I decided to try this one out. I must admit, I'm glad that I did read this and I will be looking into reading other books by this author. This story had a complex plot that takes the readers on an intriguing journey. It also is character driven, with previous history between the characters. I did not realize that this book is part of the Sharpe & Donovan series, and I feel I would have understood more in the story if I had read the books in the correct order (I do plan to read them in order now.) I enjoyed the book and the story can be read without reading previous novels, however, I feel I would have understood more about the characters if I had realized that this is part of a series. Great book, and I'm excited to delve into this series and finding an exciting new author to enjoy reading.

Agents recover the body of a man found floating in the bay and his wife is found unresponsive in her London home. Was this couple being targeted? Are they connected to the missing prosecutor? The agents’ investigation points to suspected art fraud.

It is a good read, a little hard to get started, so many names to keep straight. But then it rolls well to the end which was a surprise.

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) It has been a while since I read a Carla Neggers book and I have to say I wasn't crazy about this book. This apparently is the 8th in this series and I am going to tell you, you probably should read the first books to be able to get intrigued in this one. I never did get excited their were too many characters too many cities just a lot of stuff and it drove me crazy. The premise is the prosecutor Thamara is worried about the people her daughter got involved in and decides she wants to find out more from her friend Yank and his associates newly wed Emma and Connor, she sets up a lunch date to discus the situation but get kidnaps before. Then the chaos ensues..

The book kept you guessing constantly as to what was really going on. Many characters involved in this whodonit! I still don’t think that the person who finally was caught was the only one involved. The loss of a loved one was really sad, especially the way it all came about.

Impostor's Lure (Kindle) by Carla Neggers ...only five stars that is all I can give this..not fair.. Thanks to #NetGalley for letting me preview this book. Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan are my favorites and their stories always have so many twists and turns.. I feel like I'm part of the story and it's great to touch base will their family members and friends. This was another great one and I can't wait for the next Sharpe and Donovan book. The "banshee" is still giving me chills...

Impostor’s Lure Carla Neggers Number eight in Carla Neggers spellbinding Sharpe and Donovan series, Impostor’s Lure, is another fantastic magic show featuring the author’s iconic cryptic clues, slight of hand and red herring crime solving techniques leading the unsuspecting characters (and readers) to wrong conclusions and multiple dead ends. And where the only ones who know the truth are dead or conveniently in a coma. Colin and Emma who at series start seemed an unlikely pair has continued to wow with their case closing skills and beautifully solidified their relationship in spite of and because of their differences. The amazing atmospheric narrative, dramatic, breathtaking seascapes and strong yet flawed characters give the read a certain modern day gothic feel and the OMG ending will render more than a few jaws to drop. The past story character catch ups keeps fans up to date with the goings on in Maine and abroad and even though this has good stand alone components its best read in series order. SUMMARY: When federal prosecutor Tamara McDermott is MIA for her daughter’s 21st birthday celebration her longtime friend and newlywed FBI special agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan’s boss, Matt Yankowski (Yank) gets suspicious especially when several seemingly unrelated tragedies both in the US and across the pond in England; the murder of a Romanian linguist and overdose of a former art conservator and her missing husband have two things in common, Tamara’s daughter Adalyn and supposed art forgeries which is right up Colin and Emma’s art detective alley. When Yank asks Emma and Colin to do a little digging into Tamara’s whereabouts they find themselves constantly running into road-blocks and dead ends and left wondering if maybe Tamara simply left for her well deserved vacation early or if there is something fishy going on.
