Now he’s their only lead in a deadly new case.
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.

Double Cross is the latest novel in Diann Mills FBI Houston Series is a thrill ride from start to finish. This is my favorite genre and Mills is top notch….I am NEVER disappointed when I pick up one of her books.
I know that I’m about to visit places I’ve never been, see things I’ve never seen and experience dangers I could never face in real life (I’m too much of a chicken!) But in the safety of my cozy chair, I get to live it all through her brave characters.
The author brilliantly weaved in a sensitive topic that many people are facing with their own loved ones and I was glad to see the characters face true to life circumstances…it just gave them more depth and realness to me.
This story really kept me guessing. I wasn’t sure who could be trusted! I just LOVE when an author can keep me this intrigued.
If you enjoy edge of your seat thrillers…don’t you dare miss this one!
