Double Cross by Diann Mills (FBI Houston #2)

I have yet to get tired of Diann Mill's books. Laurel Everston is an FBI agent. Houston Police has Officer Daniel Hilton. Someone is scamming elderly people. The more they look into this, the worse the scams against the elderly have become. The crimes are escalating. Things are heating for Laurel though. The person behind the scams looks like it was her former "fiance" who she was "engaged" to while under-cover on a large operation. This is not easy for Laurel, because this man, Morton, made some very specific threats when the operation came to a close and he was arrested.

Wonder of all wonders, this guy is now a Christian? Really? Is Morton a changed man, or is this just a trick to reach more means with evil ends? Well Daniel has a few bones to pick over this issue too. His Grandparents fell pray to some of Morton's scams to the tune of about $50,000.00.

Solving the case could solve a murder or it could unravel all kinds of things! While it started with a double cross, now who is really double crossing whom? How can God work in this huge mess? Faith is tested in many ways.

Lots of strong research makes this book have an even stronger punch. I really enjoyed this book! Diann Mills is just getting better and better with each book! I'm looking forward to the next book!

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.
