A Perilous Question
by Barry Finlay
Harmless as it may seem, Marcie realizes that this question posed to the wrong person could spell disaster for the girl and her friend. Her fears prove to be well founded. When she inadvertently discovers the girls are victims of an international human trafficking ring in, of all places, her home state of Florida, her attempts to help quickly spiral out of control with deadly consequences.
Meanwhile, her much cherished independence is being challenged by a good looking FBI agent who is working the case.
Perilous Question is the first book I have read written by Barry Finlay, but I must confess that now that I did and totally loved it, I am so going to take a look at his other books. Mystery thriller is not always my thing if not written correctly. Nevertheless, this is not the case with this book. Since the very first page I was captivated by the story. I had no idea who was the girl I was reading about or why did she want to escape so desperately but for some reason I wanted to know so badly who was the girl and what was happening to her. I have to hand it to Mr. Finlay, he knows how to create an atmosphere filled with mystery, enough to ignite the curiosity and detective soul of the reader, and hints of what might be a future romance with our independent, brave, and divorced Marcie and our handsome FBI agent. Our hero and heroines sure got much more than what they bargain for when they enter a world of human trafficking, international sex trade and abduction at the heart of a philanthropic organization in Tanzania. In fact, things don’t look good for Marcie since she provides finding for the girl’s dormitory involved in such crimes. Nevertheless, she will stop at nothing to find protect the girls and, along, with the FBI unravel the truth behind this philanthropic organization and its ties with human traffickers.
