Book Description from Goodreads:
A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore's life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution. A bombing at one of Nathan's oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional--the victim's wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI's prime suspects.
Clearing Sally's name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan's personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer--and to each other--the more intent someone is on silencing them for good.
Deep Extraction is a Christian romantic suspense novel. It's the second book in a series, but it's essentially a stand alone. The main characters were well-developed and acted realistically. One of the main characters was dealing with cancer, which triggered Tori's fear of getting cancer. Tori and Cole also had to deal with the emotional turmoil of having a good friend (Nathan) die and needing to uncover the secrets in his life.
Tori and Cole worked well together as a team, and I could see why they were attracted to each other. The suspense came from physical danger to several of the characters. The killer started a sequence of events where the danger wasn't gone after Nathan died, and it wasn't easy to uncover everything needed to understand exactly what had happened and whodunit.
Cole was a Christian and needed to forgive a man who shot him. Tori was considering God because her brother asked her to, but she struggled with a God that let bad things happen. There was no sex. There were occasional "he cursed" type references to bad language being used by some non-Christian characters. Overall, I'd recommend this exciting suspense novel.
