Deceptive Cadence by Kathryn Guare



The British Secret Intelligence Service has recruited its most unlikely agent—an Irish musician. And they’ve given Conor McBride an unlikely mission—to find and capture his own brother. Buy the Book!

Before Thomas disappeared, Conor McBride had always assumed his brother was a simple Irish farmer, content to stay home while his younger sibling chased a career in Dublin as a violinist. That assumption shattered the day Thomas disappeared and Conor was arrested, falsely implicated as his brother’s accomplice in an international fraud.

Fives years later an eccentric British intelligence agent has turned up in his living room to deliver another shock—Thomas has surfaced in India, and he’s involved in something far more dangerous than fraud. In search of his brother and answers that have eluded him, Conor reluctantly descends into the world of covert intelligence, acquiring skills that make him a stranger to himself. As his journey moves through the chaos and teeming streets of India, and the dance bars of its Mumbai mafia dons, he confronts a revelation that will again shatter all his assumptions about his brother, and faces the possibility that the people he trusted may want him dead.


Kathryn Guare lives in the Vermont town where she grew up, part of the third generation of her family to call the tiny capital city of Montpelier home. She spent ten years as an executive with a global health membership and advocacy organization, worked as a tour coordinator in a travel agency, and has traveled extensively in Europe and India. She has a passion for Classical music, all things Celtic, and exploring ethnic foods and diverse cultures. "Deceptive Cadence" is her first novel.
