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 Thoughts: I've been waiting for this book! I've read all of the FBI: Houston books. Each book is about a different crime and different agents that work on the cases. But all the crimes take place in Houston, Texas.
Special Agent Bethany Sanchez and Special Agent Thatcher Graves couldn't be more different in their approaches to solving crimes. She goes by the law and he goes by what he believes/feels. They are placed as a team to solve two murders that have rocked Houston.
As their leads fizzle out it seems that this case becomes a deadlock...nothing is happening.
But then a third victim and an attempt on the agents lives turns up the heat on this case.
As the agents begin to rely on each other and trust each other. They realize that their opposite ways of solving crimes can actually help them solve the crimes.
Once again Houston FBI has some of the best agents in literary fiction!
Again, DiAnn Mills has written fantabulous story!
