Overview

Sudan 2000. The largest nation in Africa has been turned into a killing field; two million are dead in a brutal civil war. But human rights journalist Ron Wolfson isn't in Sudan to cover the action in the war. He's risking his life there on a different adventure—chasing reports of modern-day slave trading in the war-ravaged country.

When Arab Murahaleen guerrillas attack a small village and kidnap a little girl named Akin to sell into slavery in a market in the North, her father, Idris, goes after her and Ron joins the simple villager in his desperate effort to rescue his child. While Ron's brother, a U.S. congressman, battles indifference to force international political pressure on the government of Sudan, Ron finds the story he's been looking for and suffers the brutal retaliation of a slave trader. 

The lives of Ron and Idris hang by a thread in a suspense-filled, thriller ending, their fate in the hands of a bloodthirsty mercenary and an orphan boy. But even if they survive, will it be too late to save little Akin from the horror that awaits all slave girls.

Meet the Author

If Ninie Hammon had to choose between telling stories and eating, she would starve to death. Ninie spent a quarter of a century as a journalist before she tried her hand at writing action/adventure suspense novels and discovered it was a whole lot more fun to make up the facts than report them. Since then, she has published a biography, God Said Yes, and six novels: Sudan, The Memory Closet, Home Grown, Five Days in May, Black Sunshine and The Last Safe place. Her seventh novel, When Butterflies Cry, will be released in the fall of 2013. Each of her novels is a fast-paced, suspense-filled thriller peopled with gloriously complex characters who drag the reader into the story to live it with them. A native of Muleshoe, Texas, Ninie now lives a mildly vagabond life. She and her husband, Tom, travel between their home in Louisville, KY and one in the village of Great Linford in Buckinghamshire north of London where Tom directs Young Life in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Scandinavia. The couple has six children and eight grandchildren.
