The Foundling sex, lies and swimming naked by Angie Smith @cxviangie #NewRelease #BlogReview



Abduction, torture, murder. Sex, lies and swimming naked.

By agreeing to work for a new client, who claims she’s a police detective, Jonathan Miller sets in motion a sequence of catastrophic events which result in devastating consequences, both for himself and his family.

He joins forces with an old adversary. A man he’s terrified of, yet, when you’re backed in to a corner, this man can always find a way to get you out alive. Together they attempt to solve the brutal assassination of a young woman. In doing so they uncover secrets which have been hidden away for decades. Secrets involving some of the most powerful people in the world.
Hold tight for a fast paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller. Captivating, unpredictable and shocking.




Jonathan Miller really has his cake and eats it and has done for the last 20 years but he has over stepped the mark once too often and someone wants a pound of flesh, his of course.

Jonathan has a day job working as a local government officer, all very respectable and reasonably paid but when he gets home he often goes back out to make the big bucks, the job that really rakes in the cash. Jonathan works as a male escort for the rich and lonely and he is more than willing to oblige if they require anything else…………………… for a price. His wife is more than happy to look the other way for the life style they have and his never waning libido and eye for a pretty lady can be more than accommodated. Life had been good until one of his clients gets a little problem, hubby finds out and all hell breaks out.

When Jonathan is approached by an under cover cop with a deal that has no loop holes in it for him to crawl out of, he has no choice but to contact his shady boss and tell him the score. Jonathan’s life is about to go down the pan rapidly.

I was really a sucker for this guy because I didn’t want to like him but I think I would have fallen for his charms as much as the rest of the ladies. He really has charisma in the story, good-looking with boyish charms and all the right stuff to say. He in my mind became more like a James Bond, but in a weird way. Where Bond’s girls are a bonus, with Jonathan he uses women to sweet talk them to doing anything he needs but they are  also his achilles heel.

This is a truly entertaining novel, light in many respects but also has its share of drama, murder and heart breaking moments. Angie Smith is back!
