FBI agent Laurel Evertson has been content with desk work since her partner died the last time she was in the field. But her investigation into a scam targeting the elderly leads her not only back out undercover, but also working with the man she arrested that day and wants only to forget, Morton Wilmington. He claims to have become a Christian and to have changed his life, but Laurel remains unconvinced. Daniel Hilton, an officer with the Houston Police Department, fears for his grandparents’ lives after they are drawn into the scam. He agrees to work undercover with the FBI in order to protect them, placing him with Laurel on the case. Together they work diligently, and reluctantly, with Wilmington to solve the case before more innocent victims are killed.
This was an incredible book. I didn’t want to put it down until the very end. The characters were very believable, and their stories mirrored many real lives of today. The issues with trusting a man claiming to be saved are certainly relevant to many people. I loved Daniel’s grandparents and their spunk, as well as Daniel’s steady faith.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading suspense novels.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
