Deep Extraction follows the high energy, action-packed murder investigation of Nathan Moore, an oil magnate with many, many enemies. Special Agent Tori Templeton, her partner, Max, and Deputy U.S. Marshall Cole Jeffers team up to try and unravel the clues to find Nathan’s killer. When Max must step back from the investigation due to his failing health, Tori and Cole become the lead investigators and must focus on setting aside their personal friendships with Sally and Nathan in order to focus on the investigation. Their efforts uncover a possible link to a recent explosion on one of Nathan’s oil rigs. His personal integrity becomes more clouded as Tori and Cole unearth evidence of a long-term affair and patent infringement adding more suspects to the growing list of possible perpetrators. As they get closer and closer to solving this crime, three additional people are killed and Tori and Cole are attacked before finally piecing together each part of the puzzle to capture the murderer.
As stated in my opening, this plot is high energy and action-packed. Very high energy and action packed to the point that at times it seemed the plot had too much going on and it was a bit hard to follow. I did not like Max’s character at all. I understand he was suffering but he was just plain rude and crass. Tori and Cole’s characters were well matched, I thought, as friends but I had a hard time swallowing that a romance would actually come out of their interactions. There were hints of flirting, but no real in depth developments that would warrant them dating. Overall, if you can follow the plot it was filled with suspense, and I was truly surprised by the revelation of who Nathan’s killer was and how all of the parts fit together finally.
