DiAnn Mills in her new book, Firewall Book One in the FBI: Houston series published by Zondervan gives us a new adventure with Kariss Walker and Tigo Harris.
From the back cover: After a whirlwind romance, Taryn Young is preparing to board a plane at Houston International Airport, bound for a dream honeymoon, when a bomb decimates the terminal. Injured but still alive, she awakens to discover her husband is missing and theyre both considered prime suspects in the attack. Further, the FBI is convinced her husband isnt who he appears to be.
Agent Grayson Halls number-one priority is to catch those responsible for the days act of terror. All evidence is pointing to Taryn and her new husband. But his instinct tells him her pleas of innocence are genuine. Is her naivet just for show, or could she truly be another victim of a master scheme, possibly linked to the software she recently developed for her company?
With both their lives and reputations on the line, and the media outcry for justice increasing with each passing minute, Taryn and Grayson have no choice but to trust one another . . . and pray they can uncover the truth before they become two more casualties.
A bombing act of terror at the airport, murder and a kidnapping are just some of the ingredients that Ms. Mills puts in this top notch mystery thriller. There is also the husband who seems not to be who he claims to be, Taryn, who is so clueless as to what is going on and keeps making mistakes that make her look more and more guilty and Grayson, the agent who believes her and is determined to find out the truth. Firewall is a thriller in that the main characters lives are put in deadly danger through the course of these investigations. I think this is Ms. Mills best work yet and her characters are well-defined. Once the action gets going Ms. Mills revs up the thriller quotient considerably which will have you reading and flipping pages as fast as you can. Dont start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down or stop thinking about it. I recommend this book highly and am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Zondervan. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Firewall starts off on page one with action and continued on to the last page. I haven't read any of Diann Mills work before and I am now questioning why that is I loved the action, characters, mystery and suspense.
I think the story line is really good. Poor Taryn. I couldn't imagine what she went through in this book. Could all that really happen to someone in real life?
I look forward to reading more by this author and will adding her books to my wish list. And I can't wait to see what else happens in this series. Great book!
