Double Cross Book Review

An FBI:Houston Novel
Book Two

SUMMARY:  She put him in prison.  Now he's their only lead in a deadly new case.
     FBI Agent Laurel Evertson's investigation into a scam targeting the elderly takes an unexpected twist when key evidence leads her to a felon she arrested on her last undercover assignment.  That case has haunted her since, and though she's vowed to forget Morton Wilmington - and what she sacrificed to put him away - he is now her best lead.
     Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammers' next targets, , and he'll do anything to protect his family, including force inter-agency cooperation.  But he's quickly drawn to Laurel's zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon.

REVIEW:  DiAnn Mills' second FBI: Houston novel is a page turner.  Trying to figure out who the scammers' are before they con someone else or kill their target kept my head spinning.  Having the time and day stamp on each chapter to help when the storylines overlapped was very beneficial in seeing how everything worked together. While I thought I had some of the characters pegged and the ending already figured out, I was totally wrong.  The ending caught me by surprise but tied everything up neatly.
     Probably my all-time favorite character was Abby, Daniel's grandmother.  A tragedy from her teenage years, along with the encouragement of her husband and his family, helped Abby become a strong, adventurous woman who had no regrets in life.  Her reliance on God, and her S&W :-), make her very admirable.
     While this book is the second in the series, it is a completely stand alone novel.  This is one I would gladly recommend to anyone who likes a book that keeps them guessing.
