Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammer's next targets, and he'll do anything to protect his family-even force interagency cooperation. But he's quickly drawn to Laurel's empathy and zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon.
As the unlikely trio uncovers evidence suggesting the scam is more extensive and deadly than they imagined, both Laurel and Daniel find themselves in the crosshairs of a killer. Together they must decide if they can trust Wilmington's claims of redemption, or if he's leading them straight into a double cross.

KatrinaWestern KyAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5FBI:Huston #2January 29, 2016KatrinaWestern KyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the second installment in the FBI:Huston series. This story revolves around Special Agent Laurel Everston and Huston Police Officer Daniel Hilton.
5 years ago Laurel was on an undercover assignment that put Morton Wilmington away and since then she has been working white collar crimes. Laurel has a soft spot when it comes to the elderly. She comes upon some reports from 8 year ago about counterfeit prescription drugs taking place in Florida, Georgia and Texas, then 6 years ago about funeral plans, 4 years ago about wheelchairs and remodeling projects, 2 years ago luxurious condos for retirement. The common denominator was the elderly.
Daniel Hilton is a Huston Police Officer who is doing the best he can right now trying to manage the care of his grandparents and working his job. When he stumbles up an email about a life insurance policy he becomes concerned they have been taken by a scam. His grandfather is in the early stages of Alzheimer and he's unsure if anyone will take their complaint seriously.
Special Agent Everston finds validity in their complaint and upon further investigation it's revealed that the one person who might have a lead is none other than Morton Wilmington.
The plot is something that could be ripped from media headlines. The plot is engaging and flows effortlessly. This is a story where characters find things more complicated than they ever imagined. The plot broaches tough issues and resolves those issues realistically. The characters are strong and well developed. This is the second book in a series but I feel it's definitely a stand alone story.
This is a book I would recommend to anyone.

Mrs ARS5 Stars Out Of 5Unlikely TeamSeptember 9, 2015Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Double Cross by Diann Mills was an action packed thriller that I was not sure the good guys would win or who could be trusted. A scam that targets wealthy patients with dementia has targeted the wrong grandfather when they went after Houston Police officer Daniel Hiltons grandpa. While trying to protect his grandparents, Daniel takes this case to the FBI where he meets agent Laurel Everton who is investigating similar cases. With a race against time and suspicious deaths of the elderly who were scammed adding up, Daniel and Laurel have to add mastermind criminal Morton Wilmington, whom Laurel had put in prison, to their team. Morton, claiming that he is a changed man, does not have the trust of either Daniel or Laurel especially when evidence appears to point to him as part of the scheme. This book was non-stop as this trio with plenty of past baggage, have to figure out who is the real criminal and mastermind especially when they become targets themselves. Not only that, but Daniels spunky grandmother, Abby, is not going to just sit around and do nothing. Packing her own weapon and doing her own investigating, Abby is ready to put an end to this schemer as well. I really liked this second book in this series, not only a pulse pounding story but it also dealt with issues of unforgiveness and second chances. I received a copy for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
