High Treason by DiAnn Mills

My thoughts: The story takes the reader into the tense world where security for a Prince of Saudi Arabia visiting America with his family and his life is threatened. Combining the forces of the Prince's own security force with that of the FBI still seems to leave holes of vulnerability. The problem is finding the source of danger and ending it.

But when it seems that there is someone close to the Prince that is at the root of the problem but they don't know who it is, all are suspect.

At stake is not only the life of the Prince but the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia which is already tenuous. The Prince while adhering strongly to cultural customs of his own country and beliefs is considering changes economically and culturally - in relation to how women are treated. With that in play, how will CIA (aka, FBI) agent Monica be able to work in the security detail and inside the Prince's own household?

A fast paced story that leaves the reader anxious for the next page turn. The culprit behind the entire conspiracy is not revealed for certain until very near the end of the book keeping characters and reader guessing.

A good read!

About the book: 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?
