This is the second in the FBI series by Mills. It is a stand alone as the characters in this book are different than those in the first in the series.
I found the plot a little difficult to follow. It did not seem clearly presented and motives were a bit obscure. Part of that might be due to the relationships of the characters. The FBI agent, Tori, knew the murdered man from her college years. Tori remained friends with him and was, in fact, a very good friend of his wife. Cole, the U.S. Marshall investigating the case, was a current but good friend of the murder victim and his family. That means there is much background information that comes out as the plot progresses. Both Tori and Cole have experiences from their past that affect their current work so that made the plot all the more complex.
This novel is a good mystery. There is no suspense. It is the second I've recently read where a murder was committed by controlling a pace maker from a distance. The strength of the novel may well be the character development by Tori and Cole. They both had internal issues that could be made right only through God.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
