Summer Reads: Deep Extraction by DiAnn Mills


Tyndale Fiction; 404 pages; $14.99; Amazon
Now available from Tyndale Fiction is is the thriller Deep Extraction written by the bestselling author DiAnn Mills.

This book has been sitting on my to-be-read pile for a about two months, so I finally got around to reading it this morning with one cup of coffee. At around 400 pages, it wasn't an easy task to accomplish, but thanks to a great narrative, I was able to finish the book.

Deep Extraction centers on Tori Templeton, a web Special Agent in the FBI who's investigating the death of her best friend's husband, Nathan Moore. While Nathan looked like a successful business owner and a loving husband from the outside, he actually had a dark side that he hid from everyone else. A dark side that most likely lead to his death.

After Nathan's wife, Sally, becomes the prime suspect in his death, Tori teams up with the recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers to unravel the mystery.


Final Thoughts: While I have read a few other titles by the author, I don't ever recall those books having nearly 70 chapters in them. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind short James Patterson- like chapters, but, for me, it was a little annoying after a while; throwing off the overall pacing.

Besides for my nitpicking on the amount of chapters, the book itself is a pretty decent read. It started out a little slow for the first several chapters, but eventually I got hooked into the murder mystery plot. All the characters are well-written and the descriptions throughout the novel are well-done.

In the end, I enjoyed reading Deep Extraction. While I still prefer that it had longer chapters, I thought it was a good read.
