Cassidy McKnight goes to Brazil to collect Alexis, orphan of her late friends who were missionaries in that country, & have left Cassidy guardianship of their daughter. Only it isn't quite that easy. Somebody knows of her being in Brazil, & has set her up to be kidnapped. Cassidy prays that she will get out before her mother hears she's disappeared - first her brother Micah, a Navy SEAL, disappearing on a mission 2 years ago & now her! It would kill her.
The ambassador to Brazil, Jonathan McKnight has received a ransom note: his daughter in exchange for the secrets of his government. He contacts Gabriel Sinclair, former Navy SEAL & leader of the mission 2 years ago which went horribly wrong & his best friend Micah McKnight disappeared, & requests Gabe rescue his daughter.
Gabe is not happy to be given this mission. He can't forget what happened the last time he was in Brazil. However, with "Take care of Cassidy" ringing in his ears, Micah's last words to him, he knows he has to see it through.
A race through the Amazon jungle commences as Gabe & Cassidy flee the rebels who have been holding her, pick up Alexis & get to the plane scheduled to meet them & get them back to the States. But instead of the safety Cassidy assumed she would have on returning home, danger dogs her steps. Gabe, determined to get to the bottom of it, discovers the secrets that have been lurking not far from Cassidy's doorstep.
I really enjoyed this very fast paced, action filled story. Look out for the following 2 in the series also:
#2 River Of Secrets
#3 Holiday Illusion
