Award-winning author DiAnn Mills continues her contemporary romantic suspense series featuring FBI agents in the Houston area, with a sequel to Firewall, the 2014 Genre Fiction award from Library Journal.
In Double Cross, when felon Morton Wilmington turns out to be the best lead in a scam targeting the elderly that she is investigating, FBI Agent Lauren Evertson is forced to face him and the choices she made as an undercover agent.
Working with Houston Police Office Daniel Hilton — whose grandparents are also victims of the scam — Lauren uncovers evidence suggesting more than just a financial scam. As the case becomes more deadly, Daniel and Lauren must ask if they can trust Wilmington’s claim of becoming a Christian, or is he leading them into a double cross?
Mills does a superb job of character and plot development in this faith-filled series. Expect multiple plot twists as these unpredictable stories unfold. The characters are realistic, the scenarios are believable, and the tension builds until the last page is read.
If you like your romantic suspense filled with carefully researched details, pick up Firewall and Double Cross. Fans of Dee Henderson and Irene Hannon will enjoy this new series. Both books include author notes and discussion questions.
Recommended for school libraries and public libraries.
