Lust, Money & Murder: Book 1, Lust
By Mike Wells
Series description: Born in the worst suburb in Pittsburgh, Elaine Brogan is bright, beautiful and bold. When her father is falsely arrested for passing counterfeit $100 bills, Elaine vows to become a Secret Service agent and track down the man responsible. After barely surviving the arduous Secret Service Training Academy in Laurel, Maryland, she is transferred to bleak and blustery Great Falls, Montana. But things do not go as planned, and Elaine soon finds herself betrayed and thrown into an adventure that takes her halfway around the world, from dark and mysterious Sofia, Bulgaria, to Moscow Russia, and finally, to Milan, Italy. In the end, will Elaine find the love and happiness she truly seeks…or will she turn to a life of obscene wealth, power and corruption?
“Revenge, determination and love fuel this thoroughly enjoyable fast paced thriller.” – Samuel’s Book Reviews.
“You will be hooked! Not since Sidney Sheldon has a male author captured a woman’s perspective so well. it has it all — intrigue, love and realism.” – Kathleen Bursaw “bookster”
“Good book for those who like a little mystery, a little intrigue, a little romance and an average person as a heroine. I couldn’t put this book down. The tone was light and easy going, story well written and easy to follow. Counterfeiting details seem to be well researched, without being boring and technical.” – Christine, at Goodreads
“A fun filled rollercoaster Love, revenge, danger, and pride propel the reader through this excellent novel. The protagonist, Elaine, grows throughout this entire story and at each stage the reader can relate to what she experiences. Fantastic read!” – Theresa Fitzgerald, Book Reviewer
Lust, murder and5By Caught Dead in WyomingFast, intense read. Well developed plot but ended too abruptly.
Buckle up! You’re going on ride!5By IraqideserthogHave you ever watched a movie where an actor was so good you forgot it was them? Well you’re about to read a book that is so good that the movie will play out in your mind long after you finish the last chapter. That’s when the smile comes over you and you realize this is just book 1. Hehehehe
Lust, Money, & Murder: Book 1, Lust by Mike Wells3By Ruth Ann NordinThis book was good reading, but I don't enjoy reading books which leave one dangling.
Will pick up the next5By Rhoads137Well written and left me wanting to continue the story. #unputdownable
Readable but not wonderful3By DD from SpringdaleI was more interested in this book at the beginning than I was by the end. While the protagonist is initially appealing, there were a fair number of cliches that are scattered throughout the plot that in my opinion weakened the book. Finding out that it was the first of an installment was disappointing, because not that much was resolved in this book. It’s one thing to have a book resolve and be satisfying and then there are additional sequels, but when the initial plot points don’t really resolve, it is disappointing. I’m not really motivated to read anything else by this author.
Wow!!5By Michael R KWhat a great story. I could not stop reading. It move along at a great pace and never bogs down. Keeps you excited about what happens on the next page. I highly recommend it.
Lust3By JobertthebuilderI enjoyed the read. I was fully engaged and ready to continue chapter two until I was asked to buy book two. What a clever ruse, word play, and rip off. Calling chapters books and asking the public to by what at first was free. I will never buy or read anything you write.
