The other prime suspect is Carr Sullivan, the man who owns the ranch where the murders occurred. Carr was once one of the wealthiest businessmen in Dallas and has a shady past a mile long. But it appears hes turned his life around. Can Bella trust him, or is he just trying to cover his tracks?
As Bella probes deeper into the case, threats on her own life convince her the killer is someone she knows. But it soon becomes clear hes not working alone, and shell need to face the past shes tried so desperately to forget in order to solve the case and prevent more murders.
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.

Since she is familiar with the area, she is given the lead agent position for the case. One of the suspects is someone she knew years ago and she doesn't know who to trust.
I thought this was a good mystery. An old treasure legend features prominently in the story and that made for an interesting story.

I love it when you get so wrapped up in a book your like giving the characters advise :). Come on admit it we all do that right? :) DiAnn Mills wrote a whole series of books called Call of Duty series. While I had not read book 1 or 2 that didn't leave me confused and wondering what was going on. I really like DiAnn Mills and have put book 1 and 2 on hold at my library. I will definitely add her to my growing list of authors I like. What I really love about her writing is she writes with such description that you can picture the scenes as if you are there. What I loved about Pursuit of Justice is that has so much action that you are sitting on the edge of your seat. Pursuit of Justice also has romance and characters that your really like and hope that they find true happiness.
thank you Tyndale for sending me this book for review
