Deb’s Dozen: DiAnn Mills’ Deep Extraction is Mystery & Suspense of the Highest Caliber
Mystery & Suspense is one of my fave genres, and DiAnn Mills one of my fave authors in that genre. Deep Extraction is DiAnn’s latest in the FBI Task Force series.
You’d think a pacemaker would save someone’s life—in Nathan Moore’s case, one killed him. Special Agent Tori Templeton has a dilemma—she’s the agent on call when the death is discovered, but she is also a very good friend of Sally Moore, the victim’s wife and prime suspect. Tori and Max Dublin, her crusty partner, respond to the scene.
Tori is disturbed to learn Sally’s first call was to Cole Jeffers, the Moore’s landscaper, instead of to her. Max immediately assumes Sally and Cole are having an affair—a standard solution to an age-old situation. Add to the mix two teenage sons: one an angel and the other depressed and defiant.
So starts the trail of twists and turns and twists upon turns as Tori and Max attempt to solve the murder—the first twist is the Cole Jeffers has reactivated as a Federal Marshall and is assigned to the case.
You will not be able to put down the book as every chapter brings a new development not anticipated (at least by me) in the previous chapter. The characters become very real—they each have problems they’re trying to overcome and I found myself rooting for them to do so. Tori, Max, and Cole are especially believable, as is Nathan, the Moore’s son. The pace is fast, but steady. One thing for sure—you’ll never be bored nor will you guess the conclusion. Five stars again, DiAnn.
DiAnn Mills is a multi-published, multi-awarded author—her books have appeared on the Christian Booksellers Association and Evangelical Christian Publishers Association bestseller lists.

She and her husband live in Houston, Texas.
DiAnn Mills and Tyndale House gave me a copy of Deep Extraction, but I was in no way obligated to write a favorable review.
