My next book review is a great book by Howard Lufborrow, called "Crown Deception". The book is about a young dentist, Jake Patterson, in small town Texas who is asked by local police to examine a strange symbol on a dead man's tooth at the local morgue. In the same town, Kate Williams, a manager at a large company based in the Netherlands, finds out that something is being smuggled into her lab. Jake and Kate are brought into the mystery together when they find themselves on the same flight to the Netherlands for meetings. Things become much more complicated for these two, as they find themselves tangled in a web of murder, smuggling, espionage and an international police investigation. 

This book was a super interesting read! I read the whole thing straight through in less than 24 hours. I just did not want to put it down! I really found myself caring about the characters and hoping the best for them, which is not normal for me. I usually just read the book without getting emotionally invested in the characters, but not this time! 

The book is not like some that I have read that are so detailed and intricate that I can't keep up with the characters or what is going on. I like that the plot was for the most part, fairly simple and easy to follow. I loved the descriptions of the foreign locations, I felt like I was really there! There were a few twists and turns in the plot that I didn't see coming, and everyone loves a surprise here and there! 

I really enjoyed this book, and I think it would be great with a sequel. Kind of like a crime fighting dentist-type thing? I know it doesn't sound cool, but read the book, and you will see why it really is a cool, exciting and interesting read!
