A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore’s life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution.

A bombing at one of Nathan’s oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional—the victim’s wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI’s prime suspects.

Clearing Sally’s name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. 

As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan’s personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer—and to each other—the more intent someone is on silencing them for good.

“Mills many fans will devour” Library Journal

Goodreads readers praise Deep Extraction
“This was truly an amazing, suspenseful read that can be held up as an example of what good Christian suspense should be.” 

“DiAnn Mills' writing is evocative of an excellent crime show. Sharp and to the point. Just how I imagine law enforcement work, think and talk.”

“Mills' has captured the rush of adrenaline along with a good romance. Suspense and adventure are the real stars of this book.  Her motto is, "Expect an Adventure," and she achieves it in this book.”

“Deep Extraction” is a term in the oil industry referring to drilling deep for oil. Well, that’s the perfect title for this crime thriller set in heart of Houston, Texas where oil reigns supreme. And why is it the perfect title? Read on…

I carefully bent back the luscious cover of Deep Extraction to discover that this story begins with a line that hooked me and reeled me right in: “Anything could happen while the dead slept.” Do tell, I thought as I leaned in with my cappuccino in one hand and my glasses perched on the bridge of my nose. 

Yes. This actually happened!

I quickly discovered that Mills skillfully weaves an elaborate story of betrayal, greed, and vengeance and stitches in just the right amount of loyalty, friendship, romance, and, believe it or not, faith to create a riveting thriller. Oh, and did I mention there’s big oil? And did I mention that I love me some big Texas oil? What more could I ask for?

I’ll tell you what…

Great characters. That’s what I could ask for, and that’s what I found living and breathing within the gorgeous covers of this book. I immediately cared about the characters as if they are as real as you and I. Each of them has a back story, and Mills successfully unfolds the stories by showing and not telling. How marvelous!

I’m trying not to give away any spoilers here, because this book deserves to be devoured by an unsuspecting reader. But I do want to share a couple of my favorite quotes from the book:

Yes, you are correct. I still haven’t told you why Deep Extraction is the perfect title for this book. The answer is that the main characters in this book are drawn into such a deep well, searching, digging, drilling for the truth of who killed Nathan Moore, the powerful Houston oil man. (Kinda like “Who Shot JR” but better!) And like those roughnecks who strike oil, Mills’ characters uncover the whole messy, delicious payload! It simply is a marvelous read that will keep you up into the wee hours of the morning.

And that is why I give Deep Extraction 5 mysterious, thrilling brooms!
