BOOK REVIEW: A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore's life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of exection.
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.
MY REVIEW: This is the second book in DiAnn Mill's FBI Task Force series. It can easily be read on its own. I have not read the first book and this one made perfect sense.
I found this to be one of my favorites by DiAnn, and really enjoyed the plot. The mystery moves along well and keeps you guessing. I was surprised when I found out who the culprit was.
In this book, the FBI task force is baffled by the induced heart-attack of Nathan Moore, and are hitting dead ends every way they turn. But they must be doing something right--someone seems intent on getting them off the case, and witnesses who don't have much to tell are being silenced.
As Tori and Cole investigate Nathan's life to find possible enemies, they uncover a double life--Nathan is not the man his family and friends thought him to be. This weights further on his widow and teenage sons, making his passing even worse.
DiAnn puts a second theme into this book--a theme of survival and growth in times of trial. Nathan's wife and sons learn to forgive and go on with their lives, realizing that moving on is better than being destroyed by bitterness. It is something we can all learn from--hard times are not sent to break us, but to build us up, to draw us to God and increase our faith in Him.
I received this book from TYNDALE PUBLISHERS in exchange for my honest review.
