Inspirational Mystery | Romance Suspense

Leah Riesel and Jon Colbert are called into action in Galveston, TX to take out two kidnappers when hostage negotiations fail. Both agents are top snipers for the FBI. Before the smoke clears and the paperwork is done, Leah and Jon, who have never worked together before, are asked to investigate the third murder here in Galveston in three days. A police officer, an attorney and now a judge have all been killed with lethal injections of rattlesnake poison. Leah and Jon hit the ground running and start their interviews with the only eyewitness to the judge’s body being dumped on the church steps. It seems that this eyewitness clearly saw Dylan Ortega dump the body and leave, and he has home surveillance video footage to prove it.

Dylan is just getting his life back together after spending a little time behind bars. No one in the community can believe he could possibly be the killer. However, the investigation seems to indicate he is a part of the Veneno gang whose mission is re-conquista, to take Texas back for Mexico. But a larger question looms … how is this gang being funded? The further Leah and Jon dig into this murder, the more complicated the relationships of the people involved in Dylan’s life becomes. Dylan is on the lam. Can Leah and Jon find him and/or find the murderer and discover the real agenda of this gang?

DiAnn Mills is a master at police procedural thrillers, and FATAL STRIKE is no exception. She opens the story with a gripping scene, and the intensity never lets up. Fast-paced and riveting action flow throughout to keep the reader engaged and turning pages. Although Leah and Jon are strong, determined characters, they each hold onto secrets from their past that still haunts them. While working through those secrets and the case, the agents find an attraction to each other. Can they detach mentally, work the case, and keep it professional? FATAL STRIKE is a story about shame and forgiveness; about making mistakes, recovering from them, and moving forward. This inspirational thriller asks the question … can you offer up lip service to God with your life full of toxins? FATAL STRIKE is a great read … don’t miss it!
