Tina packs her bags and heads to South India. She is going there to finish her thesis. She gets more than she bargains for when her first night in India is at a hostel. Tina is awaken to a girl pleading. Before Tina can make sense of the scene, some men come marching in and take the girl away. However not before the girl can pass a note to Tina. This one in encounter has now put a target on Tina's back.

Ok, this is one of the best books that I have read about the topic human trafficking. A very serious problem that needs to have more awareness and needs to stop. Instantly I was transported to South India. It was like I was stepping into Tina's shoes as if I was her. Being as smart as Tina was, she could have come off as standoffish but the author did it right and made Tina smart but with compassion. Usman is truly evil. It is people like Usman that we need to stop. Check out this book as it is worth your time. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193407487X, Paperback)

Caught in the cross-hairs of a twisted fanatic… Poverty, broken families and a system ill-equipped to help innocent and impressionable children combine to create an ideal breeding ground for Usman who is recruiting and training missionaries for mass destruction. While completing her thesis in India, Tina Matthew, a young doctoral student from the United States, unwittingly gets thrown into the center of this madman’s demented plot built upon religious fanaticism. She quickly learns what the classroom cannot teach as she experiences first hand how Usman executes his mission with crazed religious righteousness, violence and the psychological manipulation of human trafficking victims. “A fascinating story with a suspenseful plot and rich with characters you care about and root for until the end.” – Holly Mckenna, Professional Media Lecturer, University at Albany “Subramanian has a grasp of the complexity and depth of issues related to human trafficking and terrorism.” – Dr. Rudy Nydegger, Ph. D., Chief, Division of Psychology, Ellis Hospital “An affecting read which delves into the intricacies of a terrorist’s mind.” – Nikhil Sharda, Managing Editor – eFiction India “I was hooked to the novel right from the prologue!” – Inez Bracy, Inez Bracy International, Living Smart and Well-Online Radio
