Pursuit of Justice by DiAnn Mills

Book Description:  Special Agent Bella Jordan is assigned to investigate a series of murders in West Texas that are linked to the Spider Rock Treasure. Since she spent the first fifteen years of her life in this area, FBI authorities believe she can get the job done. What they don’t know is that one of their prime suspects—a man who’s been on their wanted list for years—is deeply connected to Bella’s past. 

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 he’s 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 he’s not working alone, and she’ll need to face the past she’s tried so desperately to forget in order to solve the case and prevent more murders.

My Review: I had the pleasure of reading DiAnn Mills book, Breach of Trust, and loved it.  So was excited to read Pursuit of Justice.  In each of the Call of Duty books the heroine is in either a CIA, FBI or border patrol agent. Women with men's jobs but with the heart and feelings of true ladies.
In Pursuit of Justice, Bella, is a FBI agent sent to investigate the murders of three men on a West Texas ranch.  Even though the books are in the Call of Duty series, each book is a stand alone read about a different woman and a different set of circumstances.  So, if like me, you missed one of the books you can easily read them out of order and not miss anything from another book.
Bella is a strong woman but yet is soft enough to be gentle when needed.  She cares for others and often makes emotional mistakes but when called to investigate the murders on the ranch of Carr Sullivan she doesn't want to go by her gut instinct.  She wants/needs to go by the "book" because all the evidence points to Carr as the bad guy.  However, Carr who does have a "bad" past has turned his life over to God and IS a changed man.
I loved the character of Carr.  An all around great guy who has made quite a few mistakes but asks for God's forgiveness and stands strong in his faith.
As Carr and then Bella discover the one who you think is involved in the murder and mayhem may not be the one who is the culprit.  
The whole mystery of the treasure surrounding the Spider Rock in West Texas is great!  I had never heard of the Spider Rock Treasure and enjoyed learning about the treasure and reading more info on West Texas.  
This read has a lot of high excitement and action.  Carr and Bella seem to get into a lot of scrapes and have to work out things not only together but individually.  Carr and Bella both have issues in their past that have set their "make up" for now.  Getting past all those issues is what makes this a great 4 star read.
If you love action and adventure mixed with a smidgen of romance then you'll love DiAnn Mills' books!
