Deception Pass

Spider Green Mystery Thriller Series

Book Three

by Norm Harris


GENRE: Mystery / Thriller (Legal Military)

& Time Travel Science Fiction



Faydra “Spider” Green has had a storied career as a Navy lawyer, all while juggling being the daughter of a former U.S. President. She has successfully navigated complex diplomatic situations, pulse-pounding legal investigations, and dangerous military missions, managing each time to save the day. But now, Fay finds herself faced with a task unlike anything she has ever tackled before: fierce mafioso Roman Justine, the man who had nearly cost Fay her life, has seemingly returned from the dead. Now, Justine, hellbent on revenge, poses a threat to Fay and national security. Fay will have to go to extraordinary lengths to stop him, even tampering with the bounds of time and space.

Katrinka Lavrova is a young Russian espionage agent discovered by Russian Navy Captain Lavrov at the age of nineteen. Katrinka worked as both a spy and a sparrow since age thirteen to support her aged parents. Lavrov rescues the woman and becomes her guardian. Captain Lavrov introduces Katrinka to Fay. Fay asks Katrinka to help her steal the top-secret plans from Roman Justine’s office safe. Fay grows fond of Kat and offers her a fresh start in the United States. Katrinka dares to hope for a better life by accepting Fay’s offer.



Fay sensed the presence of Death around her. In the curtains, in the book placed on the nightstand next to the bed. Even in the sunlight streaming through the window across the bed. Death lurked everywhere. Although she had experienced Death before, including three of her own near-death experiences, Navy Judge Advocate Commander Faydra Green had not gotten used to his genius. Then again, Death was not a person. Although he was, without a doubt, a man. His costume was complete with a giant sling blade and a black hooded cape shrouding his white, pasty face. Those closest to her seemed to die. Her mother had died twenty-eight years before in an automobile accident. An accident had left her half-sister, JP Fletcher, injured and near death. Her father, former United States President William Green, had died a little over two years ago. And she had killed a man. Oh yes, Fay knew Death quite well.



Another entertaining and successful follow up to an enjoyable and captivating book series!!

This is the third book I’ve had the pleasure of reading and reviewing from the talented author, Norm Harris.

This book, “Deception Pass,” is a thrilling, riveting, heart pounding read filled with action, mystery, intrigue, suspense, and a dash of unique time-traveling sci-fi elements that continue to build up over the course of the story.

This book quickly grabs hold of the reader and keeps them fully engaged until the last page!!

This book reunites us with strong female heroine, Faydra Green, everyone’s favorite former First Daughter and dedicated JAG lawyer.  Fay is back stronger than ever and ready to take on what may be her most difficult case yet!!  This book is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat as you find yourself trying to help Fay solve the case, stay alive, and catch the bad guys!!

This particular book, “Deception Pass,” continues to follow the book series award-winning recipe of a thrilling and intriguing narrative filled with descriptive details and compelling characters.  Fay is pushed to the brink as a very unexpected character from her past, Roman Justine, presumed to have been killed, is back, out for revenge, and with his sights set on Fay.  Fay will have to go all out to find a way to stop him from completing his mission and keep him from killing her and hurting others.  This book is full of extreme, intense, action scenes that will keep you quickly turning the pages, hanging on every word!!

I think my favorite thing about this book series and Norm Harris’s writing style is his cleverly crafted story lines filled with engaging plot points and surprising twists and turns!!

I truly appreciated the author’s well-researched and knowledgeable legal military writing style that felt authentic and accurate.

This book is Book Three of Five in the "Spider Green Mystery Book Series."  This book can be read as a standalone, however readers will gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of this book series if they read them in order.  I am looking forward to reviewing Book Four, “The Girl Who Knew Death,” later this summer.

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!!  I think all mystery, suspense, thriller book readers, and legal military book fans will like this book too!!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading – you won’t be disappointed!!

**Book Four Review Coming Soon!!!**



Norm Harris' first novel debuted on an Amazon bestseller list in 2002. It was a one-and-done, but now he's back with a plan to publish a couple of sequels to that first mystery/thriller of days gone by. Except for time spent in military service, he is a second-generation Seattleite (that's what they call those who dwell in the shadow of Mt. Rainier), with his legal beagle son, K-K, and five giant tropical fish. His upcoming release, Arid Sea, is the third book in what he hopes to be an award-winning Spider Green Mystery Story series.
