Deliver Us From Evil

29 Apr

A beautiful yet tough woman working in a beautiful yet tough setting, Brannon Callahan is a search and rescue helicopter pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Strong faith and a decorated history of service have kept her one step ahead of on-the-job dangers, but there’s no precedent for what’s about to happen. After a blizzard takes down a small plane carrying U.S. Marshal Roark Holland (already haunted by a recent tragedy), Brannon must save him in more ways than one and safeguard the donor heart he’s transporting to a government witness on the edge of death. Otherwise the largest child trafficking ring in history—with shocking links from Thailand to Tennessee—will slip further away into darkness along the Appalachian Trail.

Robin Caroll has authored eight previous books including Bayou Justice and Melody of Murder. She gives back to the writing community as conference director for the American Christian Fiction Writers organization. A proud southerner through and through, Robin lives with her husband and three daughters in Little Rock, Arkansas.

My Impressions:

This is a fast-paced suspense novel that will keep you reading until the end.  The characters are well developed and the plot is strong.   I only wish that the child-trafficking aspect had been developed a little more — how do the traffickers dupe parents into releasing their children to them, how do they transport and gain entry into the U.S.  The novel ends with one of the characters wondering what next?  I look forward to Caroll’s sequel Fear No Evil due out in August.

(I received this book as part of Library Things Early Reviewer program.)
