Party animal-turned-rancher Carr Sullivan finds three murdered treasure hunters on his land, and when Bella arrives at the scene, she doesnt know whom to trust. Carr and Sheriff Daredevil Adams could be working together, or Carr could have partnered with Brandt Richardson, an obsessive treasure hunter and fugitive with a vague but dangerous connection to Bella. Bella also fears her estranged father Stanton Warick has joined Brandt, but to avoid her father, she doesnt tell the FBI about her connection to the suspects.
Carr strives to prove his innocence to Bella, but her paranoia limits her ability to trust others. While doubting Carr and her father, who profess to be Christians, Bella should have remembered 2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come. Gods love changes lives, and these characters experience this in big ways.
Though early action scenes fail to entice readers, Mills demands attention by gradually increasing suspense and revealing fragments of Bellas past. The authors best tricks are ending chapters with startling twists to the case and inserting chapters narrated by Brandt Richardson, whose manipulative and possessive mind is frightening to peer into. Still, the long list of characters might become confusing, and Mills adds excessive details about them.
Pursuit of Justice feels like a TV crime dramasometimes a bit of a slower-paced one. Those who enjoy action and suspense will like it. Alternate sections feature either Bella or Carr, and sometimes its hard to remember whom Mills is following. A romantic subplot balances the action well, but it, like everything else, develops slowly. By the end, I felt like I knew the characters, and the resolution was truly worth the effort. Alexandra R.
