"Duplicity" (G.P. Putnam's Sons), by Ingrid Thoft

The private detective novel continues to explore contemporary hot-button issues, as Ingrid Thoft illustrates in her latest exciting novel about Boston investigator Fina Ludlow.

In "Duplicity," Thoft tackles how easily the unscrupulous can use faith to manipulate the vulnerable, while she also shows respect for religion and those who find comfort in their faith.

As the in-house private investigator for one of the country's top personal injury law firms run by her father and brothers, Fina knows the value of discretion when dealing with the wealthy. Still, she's a bit taken aback when her father, Carl, asks her to help his old flame, Ceci Renard, who is worried about her daughter, Chloe.

In the past year, Chloe has become so involved with the evangelical Covenant Rising Church that she is willing to sign over a large part of her inheritance. Fina is as suspicious as Ceci when she meets the pastor, Greg Gatchell and his wife, Gabby, who use contributions to the church to finance their luxurious lifestyle.

While dealing with her investigation, Fina also focuses on the return of her brother, Rand, who sexually abused his teenage daughter, Haley. Fina focuses on Haley's needs, but her parents are more concerned about keeping this family scandal quiet. The chasm between Fina and her mother, Elaine, widens further as Elaine refuses to believe that her favourite son is a pedophile.

Thoft gracefully delivers an action-packed plot loaded with realistic dialogue and believable characters in "Duplicity." While it's clear the Gatchells are untrustworthy, Thoft still weaves in several well-devised twists. A hallmark of this series is Thoft illustrating the complexity of family relationships. Fina loves her family, and at heart, they are close. But Fina also is aware that she often is considered the outsider, being the only surviving daughter and non-lawyer. Fina's insistence on her independence while keeping close contact with her family adds to her complicated personality.

"Duplicity" again shows that in the right hands, such as Thoft's, the private detective novel has no limits.




The BBC is looking into whether Russia was involved in 'Sherlock' leak .
The BBC has launched an investigation into whether Russia’s state broadcaster had anything to do with leaking Sherlock after Russian language version of the season 4 finale appeared online early. The Russian version of “The Final Problem” went online Saturday, one day before the highly anticipated finale was set to air. Sherlock producer Sue Vertue confirmed the episode leaking and urged fans to not seek the illegally uploaded version. The Sherlock Twitter account posted a similar message minutes later. Russian version of #Sherlock TFP has been illegally uploaded.Please don't share it. You've done so well keeping it spoiler free.Nearly there— sue vertue (@suevertue) January 14, 2017 We are aware that #Sherlock episode 3 has been uploaded illegally online. If you come across it, please do not share it. #KeepMeSpoilerFree— Sherlock (@Sherlock221B) January 14, 2017 After the leak, the BBC has started investigating how the hack could have happened.“BBC Worldwide takes breaches of our stringent content security protocols very seriously and we have initiated a full investigation into how this leak occurred,” a BBC spokesman said.According to the Independent, the Russian leak contained links to Channel One, which airs Sherlock in Russia, in the form of a “three-second continuity announcement.” Some British media suggested that the leak may have been a form of retaliation against the U.K. after NatWest attempted to close bank accounts with ties to RT, Russia’s English language broadcaster. Russia was also unhappy about a recent decision to expand BBC World Service's Russian language output.
