6 Ways the FBI Investigates a Potential Threat

Curious about how the FBI examines information that could lead to a crime? In writing her stories, DiAnn Mills needs to ensure her FBI characters approach a possible crime with accuracy. To answer this question, she consulted with experts at FBI Houston.

“There are several ways we can investigate potential threats depending on the nature of the threat and the medium from which it is transmitted. Most common today is social media, email, and we still have the old fashioned phone call threats too. Obviously, each case is different, and we conduct a logical investigation where the evidence leads us. Below are some of the typical ways we will investigate potential threats.”

Deep Extraction by DiAnn Mills

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.
