Overview

A mother's suicide threatens to destroy a family legacy. Her sons, Sam and Daniel, are forced to leave their comfortable worlds behind and search for a woman they believe can unlock the secrets that have remained hidden. They are propelled into separate journeys from Los Angeles to the heart of the Zambezi, where they are forced to confront a man known as Die Duiwel, the Devil. On their adventures they will find themselves in a place where death is one breath away, where thousands of children are disappearing into the darkness, and where the woman they are searching for is on the hunt for revenge. When they stand face-to-face with the forgotten slaves of Africa, they will fight to redeem what has been lost.

    The back of this book will tell you a lot about the story that lies within. But you could never imagine what will happen. While it is a work of fiction there is so much truth in it. It is a book that will haunt me the rest of my life.
    This is one of the best books I have read in this genre. The way it is thought out and crafted is brilliant. Right from the start you realize it will not be a book you will want to set aside and do other things. For me it was read as much as I can. I even cried at parts of the story.
    The atrocities you will read about are happening in different countries every day. My heart breaks whenever I read about children and adults being tortured.
    The author gives us a great story that is filled with realism. Thank you D.J. Williams for working so hard and opening our minds to things we know happens, but do not think about enough.
    Rated PG

    The Sins of the Father Parents are notorious for keeping secr

    The Sins of the Father
    Parents are notorious for keeping secrets from their children, but do they do it to protect the children or protect themselves? This is a question you must ask yourself as you read this story. The father figure in this story might have done well to remember the old saying, “Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.” Since he was a world travelling minister with an ego the size of Montana, I don’t think he ever thought anyone would spill his secret, even though it was known by several high profile world leaders.
    This secret was huge and continued to fester even after the assassination of the father. It destroyed the mother, causing her to final give in to the pressure and guilt and commit suicide.
    The two boys knew nothing of this secret until both their parents died; even then they had to follow clues to figure it all out. The two estranged brothers ended up working closely together to figure it all out. They were motivated by the threat of their father’s replacement tarnishing the family name.
    The characters in the story are all involved in one way or the other in a large religious organization. There is a lot of money involved in telling of this story. I guess one could say the story was about the corruption of large religious groups, but I don’t really see it that way. I see it as how as humans when we do something so wrong and try to hide it from our loved ones, it just makes matters so much worse than if we had just come clean. It seems it always comes out in the end, no matter how hard we try to hide it. The more time and more lies that are involved, the more damage is done.
    This story had many twists and hints to the plot. It was really nice the way the clues were put out so the reader could follow them. I hate it when someone in a story solves a mystery by using clues that reader didn’t even know about. The characters were real and very believable. I like the way Sam kept saying he wasn’t prepared for any of this. The two brothers showed real trust and real fear in this story and that I think was what led to their redemption in the end.
    The horrors in this book are quite graphic and might offend the faint of heart, but unfortunately they are things that actually happen in this world of ours. It is to the author’s credit that he is bringing them to the light for everyone to see.
    As you can tell, I really enjoyed this book. It brought out a plethora of emotions. I felt anger at the father, sympathy for the mother, and whole range of feelings with the brothers as they went through their plight. Notice I said “with” the brothers because the author had me right there with them in every situation. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone so I won’t go into any of the plot details, but this is a book you do not want to miss. It is the adventure of a lifetime; I did not want to put it down!
