Special Agent Bella Jordan is assigned to investigate a series of murders in West Texas that are linked to the Spider Rock Treasure. Since she spent the first fifteen years of her life in this area, FBI authorities believe she can get the job done. What they don’t know is that one of their prime suspects—a man who’s been on their wanted list for years—is deeply connected to Bella’s past.

The other prime suspect is Carr Sullivan, the man who owns the ranch where the murders occurred. Carr was once one of the wealthiest businessmen in Dallas and has a shady past a mile long. But it appears he’s turned his life around. Can Bella trust him, or is he just trying to cover his tracks?

As Bella probes deeper into the case, threats on her own life convince her the killer is someone she knows. But it soon becomes clear he’s not working alone, and she’ll need to face the past she’s tried so desperately to forget in order to solve the case and prevent more murders.

MY THOUGHTS
This novel showcases DiAnn Mills' amazing talent for action-packed suspense. The book captured my attention on the first page and didn't let go until the final sentence. Fast-paced and full of adrenaline, the pages pulse with danger, intrigue, and greed while countering these aspects with loyalty, friendship, and a hint of romance. The spotlight on the FBI fascinated me, increasing my appreciation and respect for those who put their lives on a daily basis. DiAnn has quickly become one of my must-read authors, and I highly recommend this book and series to you!

Earlier this year I posted an interview DiAnn Mills about her writing and this series, which you can find here.
