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?
“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 night – as “just one more chapter” turns into “can’t stop now.”” – RT Book Reviews

“I’m here. I’m good at what I do, and I don’t cower to bullies.”
High Treason is plot driven, but that doesn’t mean the characters take a backseat. Kord and Monica find themselves working together to solve an assassination plot against the Saudi Prince Omar during his visit to the States for both business and his mother’s cancer treatment. Monica and Kord are familiar with Saudi culture, and they are both Type A personalities, which means nothing stands in their way in the race against the clock to crack the case, except maybe a budding romance, the flu, treacherous betrayal, and the fight for acceptance in a culture that doesn’t accept strong women on equal footing with men. It’s an uphill battle for all involved, but the story hurtles at breakneck speed toward an exciting ending.
DiAnn Mills has definitely done her homework in terms of researching the FBI Task Force as well as Saudi culture. I love that the author has Monica maintain her identity as an American female agent with a job to do and still show respect for the Saudi culture. As a result, Monica earns that respect back from Kord, the Prince, and the Prince’s sisters. I absolutely love the relationship Monica forges with these sisters, showing them that even in their patriarchal culture, they can have agency in keeping themselves safe and strong and confident.
Despite the harrowing action to combat the threats and untwist the assassination plot, the story has a few bits of humor. I won’t give anything away, but I can say Monica unwittingly earns extreme admiration from an unlikely admirer. So adorably sweet.
High Treason is the third in the FBI Task Force Series; however, these books are not connected. It has been my pleasure to read and enjoy the first two in this series, and the third, High Treason, is just as thrilling and faced paced.
