Kord and Monica must quickly put aside interagency squabbles, however, when they learn the prince has additional motives for his visitplans to promote stronger ties with the US and encourage economic growth and westernization in his own country. Plans that could easily incite a number of suspects both in the US and in countries hostile to Saudi Arabia. Worse yet, the would-be assassin always seems to be one step ahead of them, implicating someone close to the princeor the investigation. But who would be willing to commit high treason, and can Kord and Monica stop them in time?
In this third book in Mills action-packed FBI Task Force series, the stakes are higher than ever. Compelling characters and a riveting plot that fits seamlessly with current events make this novel impossible to put down. Readers can count on being glued to the pages late into the nightas just one more chapter turns into cant stop now. Mills does an excellent job crafting Monica as a strong heroine with a heart (an excellent counterpart to Kords more jaded side), as well as an equal (if not stronger) investigative partner. The tension between the Saudi and American characters is handled respectfully, focusing on the common ground without apology for the differences. Faith plays an important role and is integrated naturally into the plot, although a conversion feels somewhat abrupt. The romance needed a bit more transition between wary and kissing, but the suspense is flawlessly crafted and engaging.
Seeking cancer treatment in the United States for his mother should have been uneventful for Prince Omar bin Talal. But now his bodyguard is dead, and the prince is hiding another agenda that seems likely to get him and his sisters killed.
FBI Special Agent Kord Davison and CIA Agent Monica Alden are assigned to a special task force to keep Prince Omar safe. Can they do that effectively when the interagency animosity between them is so evident?
Mills has brought cultural and spiritual differences to life. Her characters, along with their real-life struggles, will bring an instant connection to readers. Her expertise in story development guarantees High Treason will end up as a favorite.

FBI Task Force #3
By DiAnn Mills
FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson and CIA operative Monica Alden are less than pleased when an attempt on the life of Saudi Prince Omar bin Talal forces interagency cooperation with them working together. Kord knows that the Prince will not appreciate a woman on his protection detail. And Monica prefers working alone especially after an unfortunate incident in the past.
Hoping to slow the cancer that is threatening his mother's life Prince Omar bin Talal, along with two of his sisters, has come to Houston seeking medical treatment. But the visit is two-fold as the Prince hopes to bolster US-Saudi relations while decreasing his country's dependence on the oil export market. Unfortunately, someone seems determined to stop him and they don't care who gets caught in the crossfire.
The only question is who is behind this attack - is it internal or external? And will foreign relations deteriorate before the truth can be uncovered? As Kord and Monica work together, the list of who they can trust grows shorter. But with cultural factors in play uncovering who they can trust may be almost impossible. Kord depends on his years of friendship with the Prince while Monica depends upon her quick analytical thinking and her personal distance from all involved.
With clues and evidence, Kord and Monica make progress but some things just aren't adding up to a complete picture. Time is against them as the would-be-assassin stays one step ahead of them. With Monica looking at those closest to the Prince and Kord looking beyond they hope to meet dead center before all involved are dead.
High Treason has it all - weather, cultural distrust, interagency positioning, betrayal, romance, illness, secrets. This case may force all involved to see beyond what they know in order to wrap it up with a minimum of loss of life.
Those familiar with DiAnn Mills will feel right at home from the opening page. And someone will get the girl this time she has choices. Faith is an important facet of Monica's life while Kord is searching. It is interesting to see how Prince Omar bin Talal and his family and staff deal with Western living and specifically Monica. If you want suspense this book will give it to you and just may be a hindrance to sleep at least until the last page is turned.
Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary review copy of this book with no expectations of a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
Specksbooks5 Stars Out Of 5WonderfulFebruary 16, 2018SpecksbooksQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am always impressed with Mills ability to not only shock me with her unique plots full of great twist, but also with the amount of detail she puts into her books. High Treason is full of such detail as Kord and Monica deal with a Saudi Prince, his family, and all their beliefs about women and the rules around them. Not once did the book ignore the complexity of the Saudi culture to make the investigation easier. An amazing novel that is definitely worth reading.
