Contract For Deceit......................... Molly's Reviews

Writer Furlotte brings a unique perspective to the work
Contract For Deceit
by David Furlotte
Pubbed first by VanGoach Books
ISBN 1-894618-28-9

When Multimedia Project Manager Jean-Val Fincoeur takes on a contract for Duprel Oil and Gas he little realizes just what he has gotten himself into. What should have been just another trade show for him to orchestrate becomes a life and death situation leading him into a desperate flight for safety.

The Canadian Military have a secret. That secret destroyed not only the Avro Arrow, one of the most advanced aircraft ever designed but the hopes and dreams of the aircraft’s designers and builders. Many insist it is a secret necessary to National Defense. And, they insist it is a secret in danger of getting out. Most concerned about that secret becoming common knowledge is Duprel Oil and Gas. For them that secret is worth billions of dollars annually. It’s a secret they have killed to protect. It’s a secret in danger of getting out.

Patrice Fincham learns to her horror exactly why working for Duprel cost her friend Shawna Klenco her life. Patrice’s path crosses that of Jean-Val Fincoeur before realizes that she just might end up paying the same price as Shawna. Combine Dashiell Hammett and Holiday in Death by J.D. Robb then attach a copious swash of good old Erle Stanley Gardner type suspense and you begin to get an idea of what CONTRACT FOR DECEIT is all about. This first mystery thriller by new writer David D. Furlotte, is a ‘can’t put it down mystery.’

The consternation felt by Patrice is unmistakable and the desperation driving her to discover why Duprel Oil has murdered her friend Shawna is matched with the determination Jean-Val possesses for discovering why or what Duprel Oil is up to. The tense drama driving them both is well defined in this complex thriller by Markham, Ontario resident, David Furlotte who spent most of his formative years in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Montreal, Quebec.

Writer Furlotte brings a unique perspective to the work because he has been directly involved in marketing and communications areas with some of the largest corporations in Canada. He has acted as advisor and consultant in addition to doing the same type of work portrayed by the main character in his books.

Furlotte’s deftness for the human situation and his clear description pull the reader right into the narrative. “I like to take an event that really happened and come up with a logical explanation that, although is fictional, will get the reader thinking that it just could have happened that way.” He is a keen observer and avid follower of mysteries including the Canadian Avro Arrow controversy.

This writer possesses a comprehension of the corporate mien many do not possess. He uses that understanding to present a tale so worrisome in his Duprel enforcer that the tingle along the the reader’s spine never stops. Furlotte’s characters are ingenious and well thought out. From the various members of the media team to Patrice and her family and friends each is distinct and credible. CONTRACT FOR DECEIT offers the reader a peek inside the workings of a corporate power that will stop at nothing to keep the power and the riches they possess.

The reader is drawn into a tale filled with intrigue, government intervention and corporate greed.. We who enjoy thrillers can only hope writer Furlotte is already hard at work on his next work and that and many more novels are soon forthcoming. CONTRACT FOR DECEIT is a story that will grasp you from the first line and will hold you tight right on down to the last page. The story is griping and is and is well recommended.
