When Saudi Prince Omar bin Talal visits Houston to seek cancer treatment for his mother, an attempt on his life puts all agencies on high alert. FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson is the lead on the prince's protective detail because of their long-standing friendship, but he's surprised--and none too happy--when the CIA brings one of their operatives, Monica Alden, in on the task force after the assassination attempt.

Kord and Monica must quickly put aside interagency squabbles, however, when they learn the prince has additional motives for his visit--plans 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 prince--or the investigation. But who would be willing to commit high treason, and can Kord and Monica stop them in time?

MY THOUGHTS

High Treason is everything you'd expect with a title like that. DiAnn Mill has done it again with the intensity of the suspense. Filled with action and personality and culture clashes, this third book in the FBI Task Force, High Treason is a race to thwart an international incident when tensions are already high.

"Poke my heart when I'm about to mess up. And please pick up the pieces when I fall." (22)

The author have always done a great job weaving in faith messages in her high suspense thrillers. In this latest one, faith is in the forefront, and I find it interesting in how faith plays a role in our characters' lives. There's a level of respect for each other as humans, rather than discriminate due to religion. Refreshingly, the romance plays in the background where the idea of kindness and courtesy, teamwork and trust emerge ahead. In all, a thrilling and intricate story that continues the series in high fashion.

"Passing on smiles and encouragement provided optimism for her day and hopefully for the recipient." (5)
