BOOK REVIEW: For centuries, the legend of the Spider Rock treasure has lured people to West Texas with promises of unimaginable wealth. And it just claimed three more victims. Did they fall prey to the legend's curse or just get too close to someone else's discovery? To investigate the murders, the FBI calls in one of its most promising up-and-comers--Special Agent Bella Jordan. What they don't know is that one of their prime suspects is deeply connected to the past she's been running from for fourteen years.
As Bella begins to sift through evidence, another murder and threats on her own life convince her she's hunting an experienced killer. . . . .and he's not working alone. To catch the suspect before he catches her, Bella must draw on all her skill and instinct and finally gather the courage to face the memories she's tried so hard to forget.
MY REVIEW: Bella Jordan is sent to her hometown on a case--to the place she vowed never again to return to. And put in charge of a case involving people from her past--whom she has vowed never to see again.
Carr Sullivan has a colorful past, but is now born again in Christ and living for Him, with plans to start a home for troubled boys. But everything is turned upside-down when three men are found dead on his property--shot with his gun. Suddenly his ranch is inhabited with sheriffs, deputies, and FBI agents, and all his plans are on hold. Why is this happening? And who is doing it? And how does Carr clear his name?
I thought this was a very interesting book. There is the given romance between Carr and Bella, but it is nicely played-down--some authors can really over-do it, but DiAnn did a good job. The storyline was really good--things kept happening and new things kept being brought in.
Pursuit of Justice is preceded by Breach of Trust and Sworn to Protect.
