Strong, independent and divorced Marcie Kane is on a much needed vacation in Tanzania, Africa when her enjoyment of everything the country has to offer is shattered by one simple question posed by a teenage girl: “When are you taking me to America?” Harmless as it may seem, Marcie realizes that this question posed to the wrong person could spell disaster for the girl and her friend. Her fears prove to be well founded. When she inadvertently discovers the girls are victims of an international human trafficking ring in, of all places, her home state of Florida, her attempts to help quickly spiral out of control with terrifying consequences. Will any of them make it out alive?
I haven’t read a crime thriller in such a long time until I read this book! Barry Finlay has made me remember why I love these types of books, because this is a fantastic crime thriller book!
This book had such a suspenseful beginning and kept me on edge the entire read. Two girls from Tanzania, Africa ask the main character, Marcie Kane when she will take them to America, setting Marcie on edge and me too, especially when someone agrees to take them! I was completely engrossed in this book and flew through it because I needed to know what happened to the two girls from the start of the story. Marcie became wrapped up in finding the two girls, discovering a human trafficking ring in her home town and got herself into some difficult situations. The story had a great twist and even had a bit of romance thrown in. All in all this book was a great read and it was easy to tell from the writing that Finlay had done his research on this topic. This book really makes you think, because human trafficking can happen anywhere, even in your own home town, just as it did in Marcie Kane’s.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys crime thrillers!
Adieu! Take care of yourselves; And I entreat you, read!
