Product Description

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.

4 ½ Star Review, Top Pick
Few characters in Mills’ latest novel are who they appear to be at first glance, not even the good guys. Combined with intense action and stunning twists, this search for the truth keeps readers on the edges of their favorite reading chairs. Cole’s easygoing sense of humor and strong faith is the ideal balance for Tori’s more reticent personality, and the sparks their partnership generates adds a sweet touch of romance to the high-tension suspense. The crime is tightly plotted, and the message of faith is authentic and sincere.

In Mills’s (Deadly Encounter) harrowing police procedural, a petroleum magnate’s wife is suspected of killing her husband by tampering with his pacemaker. FBI special agent Tory Templeton is brought in on the case, but it’s tough to be impartial as the wife in question is her best friend. Mills’s many fans will devour.
