As usual, Jerry B. Jenkins has written a book that keeps you turning the pages long after you should have put it down and taken care of other stuff. I love this series. I had read the previous book in this series and after all this poor cop, Boone Drake, went through in the last one I was hoping he'd get a little break here, but no such luck. Life doesn't always deal him a great hand but he is always up to the challenge apparently.
Tyndale gave me a copy of this book free of charge to review and the author requested that we not give away the plot, but suffice it to say, once again Boone's family is in danger. (I did not receive any compensation for reviewing this book and all opinions are my own.)
This is a fast-paced book with a lot of surprising twists and turns. I learned some astounding things about human trafficking that I never knew before.
I am always so pleased when a Christian author writes a crime story that anyone would enjoy reading and is able to inject the main characters' faith into the story without being preachy or taking away from the action. It is just a part of who they are. Jerry Jenkins is a master at this.
Best of all, in spite of all the crazy things Boone and his family endure, it ends with a happy ending and hope for the future. All good novels should end this way in my opinion.
I can't wait to see what Mr. Jenkins serves us next. Hopefully poor Boone will get a little break -- maybe the bad stuff could happen to someone else on the force next time. But however the story goes I know it will be a great read!
I am giving away a certificate for a free copy of this book redeemable at your local bookstore. Just post a comment on this posting on my blog or on facebook. I will put all the names in a hat and choose the winner next Saturday, September 22. Please post by the 21st.
