2.5 stars? 3 stars? I can't decide.

Well, that was EXTREMELY anti-climatic. :/

In one word... WOW! While I have truly loved every book I have read by DiAnn Mills, her newest novel, High Treason, blew me away! It is the third book in her "FBI Task Force" series but it reads as a stand-alone.

This book is filled with twists, turns, and plenty of heart-stopping action that will keep the reader engaged from page one to the final page. At times I found myself holding my breath just waiting to see what happened next.

I am a big fan of good characterization and Ms. Mills never disa

High Treason is plot driven, but that doesn’t mean the characters take a backseat. Kord and Monica find themselves working together to solve an assassination plot against the Saudi Prince Omar during his visit to the States for both business and his mother’s cancer treatment. Monica and Kord are familiar with Saudi culture, and they are both Type A personalities, which means nothing stands in their way in the race against the clock to crack the case, except maybe a budding romance, the flu, trea ...more

The story takes the reader into the tense world where security for a Prince of Saudi Arabia visiting America with his family and his life is threatened. Combining the forces of the Prince's own security force with that of the FBI still seems to leave holes of vulnerability. The problem is finding the source of danger and ending it.

But when it seems that there is someone close to the Prince that is at the root of the problem but they don't know who it is, all are suspect.

At stake is not only the

This book has suspense and some romance. It had twists and turns. I loved all of these. I even loved the look into the ways of Muslims. I did not want to put this book down. Lord and !onica are great characters. How FBI agents and CIA agents try to work together. This book was well put together and I loved it. I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Blog Network for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

DiAnn Mills is romantic suspense gold. She knows what the genre wants and she delivers. With every single book of hers, I am taken for a ride and given a chance to watch the heroine and hero fall in love. With the concluding book to her FBI Task Force Series, High Treason, she does exactly what she promised.

The writing is clear and concise. I had no problem following Kord and Monica around as they learned to work together to solve the case. Mills does not head hop, so she stays in the

The attempt to assassinate Prince Omar is the driving force behind High Treason for me. Unraveling the twisting story of conspiracy, betrayal, and deceit really kept me engaged and turning pages. Reading the inner workings of the sharp minds of both Monica and Kord is very satisfying.

Both Kord and Monica have similar backgrounds, having previously worked in the Middle East. Monica and Kord start off their new partnership on rocky ground; the two are like oil and vinegar. Both are very much indiv

Houston, Texas. A diverse, sprawling metropolis, a worthy city for an intense, faith based series about the FBI and their counterparts. It all springs to life in the 3rd of DiAnn Mills' HIGH TREASON, with an authentic tale of threat to a visiting Saudi prince and his family. Among the glitter of the inordinately wealthy, so true to Houston, this story of an FBI and CIA agent striving to come together for the good of all involved, come what may, is fast-paced and good escape, while making one thi ...more

I liked this book but with some reservations. The story-line was good and the characters interesting but it also moved pretty slowly at times.

A lot of that had to do with the investigative nature of parts of the story. They had a lot of evil doers to uncover. They don't get them all but as the story goes along, they get quite a few of them. That is when the action does kick in because it's a dangerous job trying to keep the prince safe and uncover each plot against him. Adding to the difficulty

Monica, a CIA operative who has had experience in the Middle East, and Kord, an FBI agent good friends with a Saudi prince, team up to protect that Saudi prince while he is in America. Someone tries to assassinate the prince and Monica and Kord work hard to uncover the origin of the plot.

This is definitely a character driven novel. Monica had previously been betrayed by a fellow operative and she is still troubled by it. That is an obstacle to the budding romance between Kord and Monica. Monica

Story Notes

DiAnn Mills brings her readers another intense installment of her FBI Task Force series that might leave you with a headache ( in a good way) as you struggle to figure out who is the criminal before you get to the last pages.

Ms. Mills has recently been becoming a favorite of mine as her writing is not only very well done but it frequently takes place in areas I know and love.

I've only read a few Diann Mills novels, and each one I read seems to be better than the one before it. This one is another home run from her talented hands! It's the third book in the series, but the first one of the series that I've read. I wasn't lost or confused, so it's easily read as a stand alone.

"Blood oozed from the back of his skull, draining a Saudi life onto US concrete." (5)

High Treason is everything you'd expect with a title like that. DiAnn Mill has done it again with the intensity of the suspense. Filled with action and personality and culture clashes, this third book in the FBI Task Force, High Treason is a race to thwart an international incident when tensions are already high.

I know when I open a book by DiAnn Mills that I will probably be up way past my bedtime reading it. There never seems to be a good spot to stop for the night because I NEED to know what happens next. “High Treason” pretty much met all my expectations and more.

One thing I liked about “High Treason” was that a female CIA operative was placed on a predominately male FBI task force in order to help protect a Sudi Prince and his family after an assassination attempt. Monica Alden certainly had her wo

"High Treason" is a Christian romantic suspense. It's the third in a series, but it works as a stand-alone. This story didn't spoil events in the previous books.

The main characters were likable and interesting. Monica had to earn the respect of the Saudi men that she needed to work with while trying to discover if any of them had betrayed the prince. She also had to work through her trust issues with men (due to a previous partner manipulating and betraying her). Kord was friends with their top
