If you would like to read the first chapter of The Chase, go HERE.
Buckle your seatbelt for this one -- and you might want to grab a Kevlar vest as well -- because DiAnn Mills will have you hanging on for dear life in this adrenaline-laced thriller! Kariss Walker shatters FBI Agent Tigo Harris' stereotype of women authors as she goes toe-to-toe with him to research the cold case of Cherished Doe, the unidentified baby found dead and discarded five years ago. Based on a real cold case from Houston's own FBI files, DiAnn Mills plunges the reader into the world of the FBI, undercover surveillance, gangs and gun cartels, and the result is a novel so authentic you will smell the "Venti, black" that Tigo gulps down every morning. This is a great read on so many levels; the heart-wrenching emotion of the cold case details, the tension & conflict between Tigo and Kariss, their individual faith journeys, and the lurking danger are just a few of the elements that kept me absolutely glued to the pages. DiAnn is in her element, writing heart-pounding suspense set in her home city, and I think this is her best book yet. I predict this first Crime Scene: Houston novel will be an award-winner, and I can't wait for the next one!
My long-time readers may remember that I posted an interview with DiAnn from last summer's trip to Atlanta for ICRS. In that interview she talked a bit about this book and how she got the insider information to make the gang and cartel aspects so realistic. You can find that interview here.
