My thoughts:  Riveting! Takes the mind and emotions to an area we would all love to avoid but know from the news we hear daily that the dreaded social evil of human trafficking exists.

As we see the character and lives of a family of law enforcers brought to the forefront of an intense investigation into a deeply rooted and mysterious case where beautiful young girls in the Columbia, South Carolina area are secreted to areas unknown we discover that they, too, are not untouched where tragedy reigns.

Chloe and her K-9 German Shepherd partner are truly high points in this story. You can literally see and sense Hank the K-9, and reading his exploits really makes you appreciate "mans best friend" and his place in bringing law breakers to justice.

Throughout the book you wonder just who is the devious and evil mind behind all the terror brought into the lives of the young girls who have been abducted. The riveting ending totally stunned me proving that the author, Lynette Eason, is skilled and able to bring an engaging and absorbing read to the book shelves of home and library.

About the book: For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her German shepherd partner, Hank. After being dumped by her fiance for another woman, Chloe has decided that Hank is just about the only male she likes. She's over the whole romance thing and focuses her attention on doing her job. Because a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.

When US Marshall Blake MacCallum's daughter goes missing, he's ordered to kill the judge he's protecting and tell no one about his daughter's disappearance or she will die. Blake races against the clock to rescue his daughter while Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous bad judgment, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?

Bestselling author Lynette Eason warns readers to buckle in for a fast and furious ride that will have their hearts pumping from the very start.
