Dear Reader,

Deadlock is the third book in my FBI: Houston series. Special Agents Bethany Sanchez and Thatcher Graves have taken me on a thrilling adventure. I was concerned about them with so many obstacles in the way of their personal, physiological, and professional lives. But they remained true to hero and heroine status, fearless in the face of danger and never a victim.

At times I wanted to pull Bethany out of the family dynamics that stalked her every step. But I wanted to show how those we love can hurt us the deepest. She practiced unconditional love with a tough truth element. Those challenges made her stronger, and she believed it was worth the risk.

Thatcher dealt with a bad-boy reputation, and most of it was true. Although he’d chosen to change his image, how to accomplish it remained the most difficult task. Running wasn’t his style, and a claim to new morals left too many people skeptical.

How do perfectionist Bethany and a free-thinker Thatcher work together? Optimistically, each could compliment the other. Realistically, they could despise the other. Which will they choose in light of a serial murder case before one of them is killed?

I hope you enjoy Bethany’s and Thatcher’s journey in Deadlock.

Two murders have rocked the city of Houston. Are they the work of a serial killer, or is a copycat trying to get away with murder?

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.
