Samantha and Amanda made their way from the beach and toward the street, laughing quietly at some of the tourists with new sunburns. Suddenly, a van pulled up alongside them. Two Hispanic males bolted from the doors; one roughly pushed Amanda to the ground while the other grabbed Samantha and placed a chloroform-soaked rag over her nose and mouth. Samantha was startled and breathed deeper, causing her to inhale the chloroform. The reaction of the drug was almost immediate; she felt the prick of a hypodermic needle into her right arm and then nothing at all.
Three years after Samantha's Stanbrook's abduction, Jake Spencer, a retired law-enforcement officer, Mossad operative, and private detective, is hired by Samantha's mother, Amy Stanbrook, in a last-ditch effort after years of fruitless investigation to find where her daughter was taken and who took her.
Spencer's investigation lands him in Mexico in the middle of two violent drug cartels involved in human trafficking. Spencer assumes Samantha is dead after all this time, but after saving and questioning a young prostitute who knew her, Spencer discovers that Samantha might still be alive.
But the motives behind her abduction become increasingly unclear as the body count rises. When Spencer discovers the shocking truth about Samantha's family, his mission to find her turns into much more than a simple rescue.
This pulse-pounding thriller will leave you breathless and wanting more right up until the last shot is fired. Will Spencer find Samantha in time? Or will she become another victim of the cartels? Find out in C.M. Swilley's fast-paced, suspense-filled
