Deadlock by DiAnn Mills

About the Book

Two murders have rocked the city of Houston. Are they the work of a serial killer, or is a copycat trying to get away with murder?

That is the question facing Special Agent Bethany Sanchez, who is eager for her new assignment in violent crimes but anxious about meeting her new partner. Special Agent Thatcher Graves once arrested her brother, and he has a reputation for being a maverick. Plus, their investigative styles couldn’t be more opposite: he operates on instinct, while she goes by the book.

When hot leads soon fizzle out, their differences threaten to leave them deadlocked. But an attempt on their lives turns up the heat and brings them closer together, and a third victim might yield the clue that will help them zero in on a killer. This could be the case of their careers . . . if they can survive long enough to solve it.

My Review

DiAnn Mills is an amazing writer. She knows how to draw the reader into a story and keep their attention. This story was one of those that from the opening pages I was hooked. Our two FBI agents, Bethany Sanchez and Thather Graves, are excellent. The story had several dimensions to it that made it very interesting.

Beyond the great writing this story looks at all too common family dynamics and cultural influences within families. The author also reminds us about the power of God to change lives and how hard it often is for a new Christian to adjust his way of life. These aspects made this story even better.

DiAnn Mills fans will not be disappointed in this story. If you’ve not read DiAnn Mills but like Terri Blackstock and Brandilyn Collins  then you’ll enjoy DiAnn Mills.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
