DiAnn Mills is back with book two in the FBI Task Force series, and I'm super excited! I absolutely loved the first book in the series, Deadly Encounter, and couldn't wait to read the second installment. Book two is called Deep Extraction. It doesn't include any of the characters in the previous book, which I was kind of disappointed by, but it was still a great book in its own right. Because of this, it's okay to read it as a standalone novel because no threads from the previous book are present in this one. The back cover says:
"A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore’s life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution.
A bombing at one of Nathan’s oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional―the victim’s wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI’s prime suspects.
Clearing Sally’s name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan’s personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer ― and to each other ― the more intent someone is on silencing them for good."
Deep Extraction was great - another wonderful DiAnn Mills novel. I love her writing style, and her books are always suspenseful. It was a page-turner that kept me up late at night and I finished it in just a couple days. I did like the first book in the series better (I loved the dog angle and the mysterious illness in the first book), but this one was nearly as strong. The plot was complicated and really went in depth (which I love!) and the characters were very well developed. I didn't guess all the plot twists beforehand, which is always a plus. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense.
I received a copy of this book from Tyndale in order to provide an honest and unbiased review. All opinions are my own.
