Goodreads:  Humanitarian aid Abby Howell and reporter Nick Sinclair find themselves in the middle of a human trafficking ring in Pakistan. When Abby realizes she may have witnessed a murder by a high-ranking official, she and Nick must break the story before she becomes its next casualty.


Kritters Thoughts:  A different kind of setting, taking place in Pakistan was an interesting place to this suspenseful thriller centered around human trafficking and the current happenings in this volatile country.  With the author putting two huge topics into one book, as the reader, I didn't feel overwhelmed, I loved how both the issues interacted with each other in the story and how one can affect the other.   

Abby was a perfect main character, she was captivating and made me want to read on and on - I loved her inquisitive nature, she always wanted to know more about the people and places that surrounded her.  Nick, a journalist comes into the picture a bit into the book and this is when the story really took off and started shaping - through him and his journalistic efforts, Abby is taken to places she never though she would have seen.

As an interesting side, this book hit kind of close to home because my mom was born to missionaries as they were stationed in Pakistan.  She only lived there for the first 6 months of her life, but I have always wanted to know more about the place where she was born, even if she didn't spend a lot of time there.  We always have issues being that her birth certificate is from there, even if she is as American as you and me.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (or to read her other book very soon)

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Simon and Schuster.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
