The blistering new novel from the author of the multi-award-nominated The ProfessionalsLaukkanen is one of the best young thriller writers working today (Richmond Times-Dispatch). When youve got nothing left, youve got nothing left to lose. Cass County, Minnesota: A sheriffs deputy steps out of a diner on a rainy summer evening, and a few minutes later, hes lying dead in the mud. When BCA agent Kirk Stevens arrives on the scene, he discovers local authorities have taken into custody a single suspect: A hysterical young woman found sitting by the body, holding the deputys own gun. She has no ID, speaks no English. A mystery woman. The mystery only deepens from there, as Stevens and Carla Windermere, his partner in the new joint BCAFBI violent crime task force, find themselves on the trail of a massive international kidnapping and prostitution operation. Before the two agents are done, they will have traveled over half the country, from Montana to New York, and come face-to-face not only with the most vicious man either of them has ever encounteredbut two of the most courageous women. They are sisters, stolen ones. But just because youre a victim doesnt mean you have to stay one.

Read for a challenge. Human trafficking - an all-around gritty read. Still like Windermere and Stevens!

I loved the idea of this book since I have such a passion for helping victims of human trafficking, but this book contained an unnecessary amount of curse words and some of it was not accurate. Laukkanen said how buyers pay over 100,000 for a girl, which is just entirely false. The horrifying reality of modern slavery is that people are purchased for hardly anything because they are disposable.
