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.

My Impressions: 

This was a deeply moving book.I adored Tina. She comes across as very intelligent, yet always seeking to better herself and her work through more knowledge. She is warm and compassionate and tough when needed. The pages are filled with horror and atrocities that you wish were only the figment of someones active imagination, but sadly they are realities that many face daily. Living the 2nd largest hub for human trafficking makes you acutely aware of the dangers that are present. This book touched my heart in so many ways. While reading this book I was reminded again of how truly evil some people are and how well they can cover it up and appear good and innocent. I am never amazed at how far a warped religious fanatical will go for their cause. That is what makes this book all the more frightening-the reality of warped theology and the means they use to carry out the work they feel is Gods and which they feel God is really blessing them for doing. After all is it not our duty as Christians even to follow after Christ preaching the good news even if it costs us our lives?

What I find most disturbing when reading this book is how easily people are led astray and how terrorism seems to always build in communities that are knitted together, reeking havoc and destruction on the innocent. I can easily recommend this book. If you want to learn more on human trafficking you can visit the FBI website here.
