“Deadly Encounter” by DiAnn Mills, book review
Stacy Broussard is a vet in Houston who is trying to make a difference in her neighborhood, which is a bit run down. Whitt is the 12 year old who lives across the street. He is smarter than any kid should be, and loves to help Stacy around the clinic. But really what he wants is a home. His parents are drug addicts and basically neglect him, unless they feel they can use him to get something- usually money for their habit.
Stacy’s life abruptly changes when out on a routine air port patrol, she discovers a homicide victim, along with an injured dog and a drone. After contacting the police, she treats to dog. The FBI becomes involved as the drone was stolen military property. Special Agent Alex LeBlanc is assigned the case, and after a while, enjoys his time with Stacy and Whitt.
This story takes many twists and turns as the FBI and other parties uncover a detailed plot to do harm to many. I enjoyed the story and was pleased by the ending.
