About The Book

When Saudi Prince Omar bin Talal visits Houston to seek cancer treatment for his mother, an attempt on his life puts all agencies on high alert. FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson is the lead on the prince’s protective detail because of their long-standing friendship, but he’s surprised―and none too happy―when the CIA brings one of their operatives, Monica Alden, in on the task force after the assassination attempt.

Kord and Monica must quickly put aside interagency squabbles, however, when they learn the prince has additional motives for his visit―plans to promote stronger ties with the US and encourage economic growth and westernization in his own country. Plans that could easily incite a number of suspects both in the US and in countries hostile to Saudi Arabia. Worse yet, the would-be assassin always seems to be one step ahead of them, implicating someone close to the prince―or the investigation. But who would be willing to commit high treason, and can Kord and Monica stop them in time?

My Thoughts
I’ve only read a few Diann Mills novels, and each one I read seems to be better than the one before it. This one is another home run from her talented hands! It’s the third book in the series, but the first one of the series that I’ve read. I wasn’t lost or confused, so it’s easily read as a stand alone.

I loved following Kord, Monica and Prince Omar. Their characters truly capture the heart and make the reader feel like a part of the story. The tension that’s between Kord and Monica jumps off the pages and becomes a part of the reader. I loved that!

My heart really went out to Prince Omar and his mother. My own father battled cancer, so it’s a subject close to my heart. As I read his story, saw his interactions with his friend Kord, I really felt a connection to him. I loved his character! The suspense surrounds him as someone takes an attempt at his life.

In trademark Mills fashion, she creates a story that is not only filled with strong messages of faith and trust, but also suspenseful twists, romantic sparks, and gripping drama. She blends her characters with the perfect, thoroughly researched plot line and creates a thrilling 4.5 star read. This is a book that I would highly recommend to all that want to stay up late, on the edge of your seat, turning page after page to reach the end. Definite nail biting going on with this one! Bravo to Ms. Mills!
