Deadly Encounter, written by DiAnn Mills, is book one in the FBI Task Force series. Veterinarian and volunteer airport ranger, Stacy Broussard, breaks the rules and takes her normal Saturday morning ride around the perimeter of Houston’s airport alone when her other riding partners cannot make it. On her ride, she comes across a murder victim with an injured dog and an armed laser drone that was stolen from the military.
The FBI is called in to help. Agent Alex LeBlanc is suspicious of everyone, including Stacy. As other events start to happen in the community Stacy lives in, he starts taking a deeper interest into her life. Stacy is a devote Christian and is always giving of herself, so much to the point she has taken in a young boy who has been neglected by his parents to avoid having him go into the foster care system.
This is a very good, fast paced story. It is full of mystery and action with a touch of romance and is very hard to put down. I also like how the story focuses on Stacy and the young boy she has taken in, not just all the negative things happening around her. This is a good, clean police story that does not go into all the gory details to get the story across. I especially like that Stacy has decided to get more involved with her parents after so many years and that her parents were there for her when she got sick. I would recommend this story to anyone who likes to read Christian suspense stories.
I received a copy of this book from Book Club Network and the publisher for an honest review.
