Deep Extraction, by Diann Mills, is the second book in the FBI Task Force series. In her “Note From the Author,” Mills describes it as a novel showing “how people can grow and become better people for their circumstances or sink into the depths of degradation.” Set in Houston, Texas, it centers around the murder of Nathan Moore.
FBI Special Agent Tori Templeton is shocked at the murder of her friend Nathan. Best friends with his wife Sally, Tori is determined to find out who hacked Nathan’s pacemaker and killed him. When Deputy US Marshall Cole Jeffers, also a close friend of the family, reinstates and joins the task force, the two are paired to solve the murder. As they investigate, they find that Nathan was not the man they thought, keeping many secrets that weave a tangled web of evidence to sort out. With Sally a suspect, they are motivated to find the truth and clear her name.
This was an excellent book. I found it hard to put down. The characters are very realistic, with flaws that any person could possess. I especially enjoyed Tori’s devotion to her friends and appreciated her honest struggle with faith in God.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Christian suspense novels.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
