Book Description: FBI Agent Laurel Evertson’s investigation into a scam targeting the elderly takes an unexpected twist when key evidence leads her to Morton Wilmington, a felon she arrested five years ago on her first undercover assignment. That case has haunted her since, and though she’s vowed to forget Wilmington—and what she sacrificed to put him away—he is now her best lead.
Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammer’s next targets, and he’ll do anything to protect his family—even force interagency cooperation. But he’s quickly drawn to Laurel’s empathy and zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon.
As the unlikely trio uncovers evidence suggesting the scam is more extensive and deadly than they imagined, both Laurel and Daniel find themselves in the crosshairs of a killer. Together they must decide if they can trust Wilmington’s claims of redemption, or if he’s leading them straight into a double cross.
My Thoughts: Ever since I read Firewall by DiAnn Mills, I've been waiting of the next book in the FBI: Houston "series." I loved Firewall and just knew that Double Cross would be as great of a read. I was not disappointed!
When DiAnn Mills writes it feels as if the reader is right there in the action. And there is a lot of action and suspense in this read! Love it!
FBI agent Laurel Everston is investigating a scam on elderly people. There are quite a few twists and turns in this investigation. And then during the investigation she meets Houston police officer, Daniel Hilton, who wants to protect his family (interestingly enough in real life quite a few people become police officers or investigators because they want/have a need to protect others)....anyway, Laurel and Daniel meet.
When Laurel and Daniel meet, Daniel wonders why Laurel has agreed to use the help of a felon. But after talking, they both agree for the good of the people being scammed to team up. Quite a team!
But is the felon, Morton Wilmington leading them straight into a double cross?
Loved this story! Full of information, a "tad" romance and lots of action!
