(Book 2 The Caspian Wine Series)

Date Published: March 2014

He created a legacy that no one could imagine…

Tarin has lost a week of her life. She doesn't know what happened but not long after she returns to work she is suspended from her job. Confused and pregnant, she quits and agrees to marry Stephen, only to be thrown into a whole new nightmare. Desperate, she grabs her son and moves across the country to get away from her abusive husband and to avoid her unforgiving father. Thrilled at getting the Tech assistant job at Knights Associates, not only will she be helping them solve cyber crimes but she'll be able to use their connections and resources to solve her own mystery. Who stole a week of her life? And will they return to steal the secret she is now protecting?

Graham and his partner Guy can't keep up with the demand. They are being flooded with requests at Knights Associates, where they offer a combined service of private investigator and that of solving cyber crimes. It appears that someone wants to get their attention, not only have they been hacked but Guy's family business, Caspian Winery, seems to be under attack as well. Hiring an assistant seems to be the answer but when Graham discovers she's been accessing their high-security accounts, he decides the cause of their predicament might be closer than he thought. Is their new assistant behind the problems they're having? If she's so innocent, why is someone after her?

Tarin and Graham discover that although they don't trust each other, they are forced to work together to solve several seemingly unrelated crimes that may lead to one disastrous conclusion. Can they figure it all out before Tarin's nightmare plays out? Before an eighty-year-old woman pays with her life? Or before Tarin learns a truth that may seal her fate, a truth that will keep her and Graham apart, a truth that neither one of them may be able to forgive or forget...

(Caspian Wine Series - Book #2. This novel is standalone but is a Sequel to “Captured Lies”)

Is There a Message in Your Novel That You Want Readers to Grasp?
That there are times when you really need to decide what is right for you
and to make the leap.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
The editing and rewriting is truly the hardest part but I also find it the most rewarding part because that's when the story truly comes to full life.

How many books have you written and which is your favorite?
I have three published novels. Each of them are my favorite but in a different way. Captured Lies is my favorite because it was my first. Tainted Waters is my favorite because it was my second. I wasn't sure I could write another compelling suspense/thriller. And Deceitful Truths because writing a sequel challenged me in ways I hadn't expected.

If You had the chance to cast your main character from Hollywood today, who would you pick and why?
I think Natalie Portman would be excellent to play my main character, Tarin. Not only is Natalie beautiful but I think a very versatile actress who would do the part justice. She can play a classy lady but also one who isn't scared to dig where she shouldn't to find answers.

When did you begin writing?
I started writing when I was nine, well at least as far as I remember. I had decided I was writing a novel, not that it ever got finished but it was enough to hook me into writing.

How long did it take to complete your first book?
My first novel, Captured Lies took about a year to write and most of it was done by pen and paper as I wrote it while running kids around to sporting events.

Did you have an author who inspired you to become a writer?
 I would say that Sandra Brown and Robert Ludlum are not only two of my favorite authors but two who I love how they write and what they write.

What is your favorite part of the writing process?
Creating the characters and the story, plotting out what is going to happen to whom and weaving the whole story together so that it is full of twists.

Describe your latest book in 4 words.
Dig for the truth!

Can you share a little bit about your current work or what is in the future for your writing?
I currently am working on two different suspense/thriller novels:
 Deadly Ties - What connection could there be between a twenty year-old   murder and a thirty year-old murder and a present day attack on      Kyara's mother? Did her  grandmother falsely go to jail for twenty-years?

            Split Seconds - Twins sisters meet for the first time as adults and soon         discover that someone has gone to great lengths to keep them apart and will    even kill to ensure that continues. 

Award winning author, Maggie Thom, took the challenge and leapt off, leaving a fulltime, twenty year career in management, to write full time. After publishing her first suspense/thriller book Captured Lies, October 2012, she published her second novel, Tainted Waters, April, 2013. Tainted Waters went on to win 2013 Suspense and Thriller Book of the Year through Turning the Pages Magazine and Captured Lies won book of the Month through LAS Reviews (February 2014). She published her third novel, Deceitful Truths (The Caspian Wine Series - Book 2), March 2014. An avid reader and writer her whole life, she decided to break the monotony of wishing to be an author by making it happen. She is a wholehearted nature lover and likes nothing better than to take a book, hike to a remote spot by a river or waterfalls and read. Married to her best friend, she is learning that humor, love and patience help her navigate her way through her twins’ teen years. Her motto: Escape to read and Read to escape. "Maggie Thom writes a fast paced thriller laced with romance that keeps the reader interested and on edge!" InDtale Magazine
