Title: Deadly Encounter (FBI Task Force #1)
Author: DiAnn Mills
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers
My rating is 5+ stars.
This is the best novel yet that includes nail-biting suspense and intrigue unlike ever before from this author’s pen! I have read all of DiAnn Mills FBI themed books, but this one is top of the charts, if not off the charts! The author has always written very suspense-filled stories that are crafted after she has truly done a marvelous job of researching, so the story is authentic in many places. Here is story of an Airport Ranger who is actually a full-time vet, but volunteers to ride her horse and ride a perimeter route to make sure Houston’s airport is safe. However, unlike any of Stacy’s previous rides, she comes upon a body and discovers a drone. When the FBI agents show up, one of them makes her feel as though she is a suspect and he can’t believe she is as innocent as she appears. Special Agent Alex has had a bad experience in his professional line of work that has soured him towards believing any woman who claims she is innocent.
Stacy is a vet who has been at odds with her parents for years and is trying to adopt an 11-year-old young man whose IQ makes talking to him seem like he is an adult. Whitt is the young man who has captured Stacy’s heart and it is felt both ways by the characters. Living in a rundown neighborhood and trying to adopt this young man is one Stacy’s hearts desires. Stacy also wants to be reunited with her parents after being estranged for so long so she slowly tries to bind up the broken family relationship with short weekly calls. Now, Stacy is deathly ill and so are some of those in her neighborhood. If they don’t find a serum to aid the sick or the right combination of antibiotics, some are going to die!
The race heats up quick as the FBI hunts down the source of the illness and the drones sent by nefarious people. This was a quick-paced, action-filled ride that kept me up all night because I just couldn’t put the book down! For anyone looking for a novel of that nature, look no further. You’ll want to make time to read this outstanding FBI novel ASAP!
