Six teenage girls have been kidnapped. Five have been murdered. One survived. Only she can reveal the secrets of a disturbing ring of people who kidnap and sell teenage girls on the black market. But those responsible for the crimes will do whatever it takes to maintain her silence.
Susannah Vartanian and Luke Papadopoulos have both sworn to stop the murderers for their own personal reasons. The investigation will lead them to the shady realm of Internet chat rooms, where anyone can mask their identity. They soon discover a chain of deception so intricate they don't know who to trust. Finding comfort in each other's arms, they begin to unravel the intricately knotted threads, but the killers are ruthless and determined, and won't hesitate to take extreme measures to insure their anonymity and keep their business intact. When Susannah discovers an unexpected link to the girl she is trying to save, her life is soon in danger and Luke will do everything he can to save the woman he loves.
This was a dark, suspense filled novel that kept you at the edge of your seat. In the beginning I had a hard time starting because it was SO sinister and dark dealing with the scum of the earth. Once I got past the evil beginning I could see that it was people doing their very best to overcome and turn around the evil situation. If you have any history of violence in your past you probably shouldn't read this book. It might be too painful. Otherwise, it was a very good read.
