In Terrify No More an international team of investigators goes undercover to infiltrate this ring of brothels and gather evidence needed to free these girls.

Headed up by former U.N. war-crimes investigator, Gary Haugen, the team perseveres against impossible obstacles - police corruption, death threats and mission-thwarting tip-offs - in a mission focused on bringing freedom to the victims.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Haugen, president of the Christian humanitarian organization International Justice Mission, peoples this account of IJM's efforts to rescue young girls from forced prostitution in Svay Pak, Cambodia, with larger-than-life heroes and villains. Written with the aid of communications consultant Hunter, the story, played for all its terrible drama, tells of girls sold into sex slavery by their families or tricked into it by the promise of legitimate work. IJM members, posing as customers, infiltrated the brothels, interviewed the girls and later staged successful rescue operations. Haugen credits the success of his work to God ("I believe we all yearn for the joy that arrives... when we find our own active place in the struggle against evil and discover the transforming power of life the Divine has granted to mere mortals") and shrugs off doubters ("Some Christians are uncomfortable with the idea that God has been in a dark, repulsive brothel.... Our investigators are not only comfortable with the idea-it's a truth they count on"). Haugen describes other IJM victories, including a raid on a South Asia brick kiln that relies on slave labor, but the focus is on the sex trade and the palpable zeal with which IJM fights it. (Jan.) Forecast: Haugen has appeared on Oprah, Dateline and other shows in connection with this mission. His media savvy and his sensational topic should ensure plenty of exposure for his first book.

Read an Excerpt

What if one of the pimps pulls a gun on the bus full of children? I thought as I stared at the operational diagram on the wall. After all, we can't check the bad guys for weapons before they get on the bus with all the kids. I began to picture the scene in my mind. The pimp on Bus One gets nervous. He pulls out a gun. The kids all start screaming. The pimp yells at the bus driver. The bus driver starts to panic. Chaos. Screaming kids. A gun flailing in the air. A bus careening down the highway.

"What's the plan if something goes wrong on Bus 1 on the way to Bravo?" I asked Bob Mosier, the operation's tactical leader, now giving our team its final briefing.

This was game time, and the last chance to visualize the operation step by step and picture everything that might go horribly wrong. You can't always stop things from turning bad, but you don't want to be thinking about the problem for the first time when dozens of kids are suddenly screaming and someone is waving around a loaded pistol.

And now there wasn't much time left. My colleagues had meticulously planned the operation for seven months and now we were here, early on a Saturday morning in March 2003, huddled in a small hotel meeting room in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, with the pale green blinds pulled shut. We had made the decision to push our barrel over the falls; having set the operation in motion, we were gearing up for our free fall toward the water, or rocks, or oblivion ahead. Within hours our team of professional investigators, lawyers, and other strategic staff members planned to raid a series of nasty and dangerous brothels where scores of very young girls were being sold for sex in an open market. We had been in the country for nearly two weeks dealing with delay after delay, to the point that our lead investigator's life was now in danger and the rescue of the brutalized little girls was gravely at risk.

As International Justice Mission colleagues, we shared a vision for rescuing victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery and other forms of oppression and abuse. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., our young human rights organization, best known as IJM, had established offices around the globe. We'd carried out many rescue operations over the last several years. We'd learned some hard lessons. With our impending move into the brothel community of Svay Pak, eleven kilometers outside of Phnom Penh, only hours away, it was my job to ask all the questions I might one day desperately wish I had asked ahead of time.

It was 6 AM as we sipped coffee, shifted in our thin, black-lacquered chairs, and passed around copies of the operational plan, maps, checklists, and extra cell-phone cards. Most of us hadn't slept more than a few hours for days, and some not at all. But in such final moments of preparation, a restrained but fierce adrenaline rush provides intense clarity. My colleagues are extremely good at what they do, and as the briefing proceeded, I noticed their steely confidence and immoveable courage. With anticipation and awe, I sensed I was about to see, by the grace of God, something of extraordinarily rare beauty - an authentic miracle of passionate goodness, pure courage, and the most excellent love.

Bob and the security team walked us through escape routes and contingency plans for each person involved, in case crowds of onlookers became hostile mobs ready to unleash their anger upon anyone who threatened their livelihood. And we hoped to do precisely that - to threaten, disrupt and shut down the business they were conducting at the expense of innocent girls.

Our investigators had set up a ruse to convince the brothel keepers to allow us to transport as many child victims and perpetrators as possible on a bus to an offsite party, where the girls' services would be needed. Once at the safe house, location "Bravo," the girls would be rescued and the perpetrators arrested by a squad of Cambodian National Police.

Bob Mosier, a former SWAT team and criminal investigations division commander, coolly answered my question with characteristic precision. He explained that if a pimp had a gun on the bus, we would move into standard police response and neutralize the threat.

"We will request that the police have checkpoints along route 598, so that officers will be available to follow the bus or stop the bus and assist the victims and staff if something goes wrong," Mosier said.

He then outlined a reasonable scenario in which the local police authorities could be called upon to aid in capturing or eliminating such a threat to the safety of children, IJM staff, and our operatives.

"What if a mob gathers and threatens the safety of IJM staff? Does everyone know the exit strategy?" Mosier quizzed us.
Though he was certain everyone did, Mosier started at the beginning: "First, anyone in danger should call or radio Will Henry immediately. Will will have temporary command over two buses of Cambodian National Police waiting here on the main road outside the village," he said pointing to the map. "He will direct the police to your location in the village at any moment you feel you're in imminent danger."

"In a few minutes I will hand out a more detailed emergency evacuation strategy, including what happens if we need to evacuate Bravo. But, the most important thing to remember is this: Don't panic; we will get you out."

    Break your heart and cause you to celebrate

    This is a gripping book that reads like a mystery novel. Only these are real people, not fictional characters, and the dangers, pains and joys really happened. Not easy content to read in places, but thrilling in the way the good news occurs. Enlightening book about things you thought only happened in the dark ages. These rescuers are real-life heroes.

    Incredible, intense read -- not for the faint of heart

    The stories of real people are captivating, and you may never be the same after reading this. For readers who aren't afraid of reality, this book issues a wake-up call about the abuses that still happen to innocent people all over the world. The reason to read the bad news is that there's light at the end of the tunnel. Someone is doing something about it, risking their lives to attempt bold rescues!
