Although the subject matter of this story was hard to read about, I liked the way the author wrote this story. Brannon Callahn is a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. She and her good friend and co-worker, Lincoln, find themselves on a rescue mission in the middle of a blizzard. Roark Holland is a U.S. Marshall who finds himself on a mission to deliver a heart for a patient who can reveal information on a child trafficking ring if he gets the heart transplant in time. But there are people out there who would kill to keep the heart from arriving. When the helicoptor that Roark is in goes down in the storm, Brannon's helicopter finds them and comes to the rescue. But her helicopter is shot at and they must flee on foot. Brannon and Roark have a hard time at first liking each other but by the end of the story that will change.
This was a fast paced, action packed book. I liked the way the book helped you stay up with the time sequences by the place and time headings throughout the book. I also loved the way Brannon and Lincoln used the "Bible verse" game in any and all situations. It helped them through tough situations and also was a real testimony to Roark. It is hard to believe there are people who would use children the way it is told in this story, but it is good to know there are people out there fighting to keep it from happening. A special thanks to LibraryThing Early Reviewers for sending me this book to review.
