Readers who love “thrillers with heart” will find everything they’re looking for in this award-winning book - the first in a new suspense series. Meet Conor McBride. He’s even more interesting than the trouble he gets into. A talented Irish musician reluctantly reinvents himself, disappearing into an undercover identity to search for the man who ruined his career: his own brother. On a journey from the west of Ireland to the tumultuous city of Mumbai, Conor McBride’s only goal is to redeem the brother who betrayed him.
But he’s becoming a virtuoso of a different kind in a dangerous game where the rules keep changing—and where the allies he trusted to help him may be the people he should fear the most.
Thank you so much for your interest in The Virtuosic Spy series. I’m excited about sharing Conor McBride’s adventures with you, and hope you will get as hooked on him as I am. Many of the settings described in Deceptive Cadence are from my own experiences traveling in both Ireland and India, two countries that captured my heart and are always beckoning me to return.
I am a Vermont-based writer, and although I’ve traveled extensively I always return to the place where I grew up – the tiniest, funkiest, most awesome state capital in the country.
I have a passion for music (from Classical to Pop, and everything in between) and all things Irish, I’m hooked on travel (naturally!) and I love exploring ethnic foods and diverse cultures. Oh, and of course reading! I also love connecting with readers to share experiences and new discoveries in these areas. I hope you’ll share yours as well.

Reader's Favorite Gives Top Marks to Thriller Ebook Deceptive Cadence
"...a brilliantly written piece of storytelling...should appeal not just to fans of spy stories, but everyone as well."
Mystery Author R.A. Herrold Reviews Deceptive Cadence"...Guare diverges creatively from the formula in her debut thriller, Deceptive Cadence. The result is a richer reading experience that we get with 'masters' of the genre like Robert Ludlum or Dan Brown."
