Airport Ranger volunteer Stacy Broussard expected a peaceful Saturday morning ride around the perimeter of Houston’s airport. What she encounters instead is a brutal homicide and a baffling mystery. Next to the body is an injured dog, the dead man’s motorcycle, and a drone armed with a laser capable of taking down a 747.
Though FBI Special Agent Alex LeBlanc sees a clear-cut case of terrorism, his past has taught him to be suspicious of everyone, even witnesses. Even bleeding-heart veterinarians like Stacy. But when her gruesome discovery is only the first in a string of incidences that throw her life into a tailspin, Alex begins to wonder if Stacy was targeted. As a health emergency endangers Stacy’s community, and the task force pulls in leads from all directions, Alex and Stacy must work together to prevent another deadly encounter.

Praise for the FBI: Houston novels

Deadlock: “This is a fast moving crime story with several interesting twists and turns. [Deadlock] is a page turner.” — Online Reviewer

 
Double-Cross:  
“Mills does a superb job of character and plot development in this faith-filled series.”Christian Library Journal
 
“Mills’ writing is transparently crisp, backed up with solid research, filled with believable characters and sparks of romantic chemistry.” Novel Crossing
 
Firewall:  
“Christy Award–winning Mills skillfully builds a menacing overall tone, and the tension level rises as layers of lies are peeled away in multiple plot twists. This novel, which takes off at a breakneck pace with a narrative arc that could have been ripped from today’s headlines, will greatly appeal to fans of James Patterson’s “Alex Cross” series and readers who enjoy psychological thrillers.” — Library Journal starred review
 
“Mills takes readers on an explosive ride. The terror is all the more chilling because it
could easily be a headline story on the nightly news, and Mills’ characters spring to life
through their fears, strengths, and quirks. A story as romantic as it is exciting, Fi
rewall
will appeal to fans of Dee Henderson’s romantic suspense stories.” —

Review

I thoroughly enjoyed the page-flipping ride in DEADLY ENCOUNTER by DiAnn Mills.  

A day, just like any other, turns into the beginning of a dangerous and deadly day at work for volunteer airport ranger, Stacy Broussard.  After discovering a dead body, a possible terroristic threat and an injured dog, Stacy is thrown into the middle of a whirlwind investigation with FBI Agent Alex LeBlanc as the two are forced to work together to save those around them from a deadly bio-terrorist attack.  Both Stacy and Alex must learn to trust in each other and find the strength through their Faith.

Another gripping suspense from DiAnn Mills.  What I love so much about these books (FBI Series) is how quickly I get sucked into the story with the opening pages.  Mills keeps the snowball rolling all the way to the end.   Great story line, nail-biting suspense, action from beginning to end, and characters who authentically deal with their issues with themselves and in relationships with others.  A great read!
