That is the question facing Special Agent Bethany Sanchez, who is eager for her new assignment in violent crimes but anxious about meeting her new partner. Special Agent Thatcher Graves once arrested her brother, and he has a reputation for being a maverick. Plus, their investigative styles couldn’t be more opposite: he operates on instinct, while she goes by the book.
When hot leads soon fizzle out, their differences threaten to leave them deadlocked. But an attempt on their lives turns up the heat and brings them closer together, and a third victim might yield the clue that will help them zero in on a killer. This could be the case of their careers . . . if they can survive long enough to solve it.
Thatcher and Sanchez are Great together! At first their a little touch and go, neither wanted to bend their thinking to the others. But when they finally come together and start working as a team, they can’t be stopped!
Sanchez has spent her adult life being on the outside of her family. After choosing a career in law enforcement, and not letting her troubled brother get away with his crimes she is left out of all family things. Her dad has forbidden her from even going to her childhood home. When she switched to violent crimes division she is thrown into a murder investigation, without any thoughts of her family being involved.
Thatcher has had his own family problems from long ago. They are each closed off, and don’t like sharing about their selves. Eventually the ice is broken, and they become close partners. After being shot, neither can any longer hide their feelings for the other. There is a great romance mixed in with the suspense in Deadlock.
This is a great ‘Whodunit’ with a lot of suspense. Every page has twists and turns you will never expect. Every time I believed I knew who it was, something happened to completely change my mind.
DiAnn Mills is a wonderful storyteller. These characters are just like real people, jumping off every page. Although this is a Christian book, with God throughout, she isn’t pushing you to believe in anything you don’t. So, even if your not a believer you will enjoy this book!
I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. These thoughts and opinions are all mine.
