Blake's daughter, Rachel, is brave, determined, and somewhat stubborn, she helps them track down the guy who took her, but doesn't run because she hopes to help her friend who was also taken.
Overall, I loved the suspense of this book, it has great dialog, and admirable characters. It is chock full of action, and it was hard to put down. I thought that it dealt well with the difficult topic of human trafficking, though as a mother it was hard to read about, but it is good to be aware of this very present issue. Great pacing makes this story fly by. I loved the way that this book portrays the men and women who risk their lives to protect and serve.
