A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore’s life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution.
A bombing at one of Nathan’s oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional—the victim’s wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI’s prime suspects.
Clearing Sally’s name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan’s personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer—and to each other—the more intent someone is on silencing them for good.
Let me tell you why I wanted to read this book before I tell you what I thought about it. If you know me at all then you are aware of my sudden cardiac death the week before my 28th birthday. If you don’t know me then you might want to read a little to catch up. When I saw that the victim was killed by a someone hacking into his pacemaker and jacking with it. It immediately peaked my curiosity since I have a defibrillator. Actually, what the what is what went through my mind.
A Pacemaker Hacker? Is there really such a thing!?
Now, let’s get to my thoughts on this title.
Deep Extraction is the second book in the FBI Task Force series, and here again I have read the series out of order. I do not know what has gotten into me. But, I am glad to tel you that the first book in this series is Deadly Encounter and both can stand alone just fine. You do not have to read these in the correct order. Just be a rebel, like me. 🙂
I’m a sucker for police-type dramas, books and television, and the more action, details, suspense and twists, the better. I am also a Christian, so the mention of prayer and God did not affect me at all. The Christian aspect is minimal. It is not distracting, in your face or pushy, at all. It is approached very realistically. Having a defibrillator (mine has a pacemaker function) and having gone through cancer, I felt I could really relate to this one.
After mentioning all of the above, I am happy to say that this book is all that I have already talked about. Lots of action! Explosions, gun fights, heroes and heroines. There are some feelings in this one as well. It is a very well rounded book! There are a few things that are a bit predictable; one being the little romance that blossoms. I like my police-type dramas to be a little more realistic, and most of it is realistic, but in the real world, friends of a murder victim would not be able to be involved in the investigation. But, it was refreshing to read about friends taking a stand for the victims (their friends). I think they did what many of us would try to do, and that is do whatever they had to do to find the killer.
Diann Mills is one author that I plan to read every book she comes out with. I like her writing style that much!
