Unaware of the depths of evil that will be uncovered, Brinna finds herself flung into a dangerous frontier–an organized human trafficking ring

My Review:

This is probably not a book I would typically pick up as I don’t read a lot of suspense/police fiction, but when I saw it dealt with the subject of human-trafficking, I was interested because that is a matter that has caught my attention and pulled at my heart.
I was pleasantly engrossed into “Visible Threat” immediately. I very much appreciate that the author is a former police officer therefore giving authenticity to her writing. It was very real, and well-written. The characters were very life-like, and I liked Brinna a lot and could identify with her on many levels.
Some of the romance involved, though plenty clean and innocent, I felt like it was kinda over-done, but I think that is mainly because I am tiring of reading romance books that are all relatively the same. That was really the only thing that I wasn’t “sold” on. But I will say that the amount of romance in this book was minimal and well done through out the entire book. I wouldn’t say it was badly done in any way. And it was only in the beginning that I noticed it being ‘over played’ if that makes sense. :)
That aside, this book was amazing, and gripping. I really enjoyed it! I don’t even know how to touch on the whole human-trafficking thing in this review, but trust me when I say it was written with care and strength. The whole matter is close to my heart, one I want to get involved with to help end. Elohim (God) is bigger than even this, and will perform His perfect justice in His perfect timing.
I very much like that Brinna was searching for her own faith throughout the book, and dealt with the hard questions of why bad things happen, where is the justice, etc.
This whole book was eloquently written, and I was not disappointed in the least. I would like to read the first in the series soon, too. :)

Note: I received this book free for review from Tyndale House publishers. I was not paid to review this book, and all thoughts are my own and unbiased.
