Pleasant read - would recommend. I've read all the other Dee Henderson books and this one is better than the final O'Mally series book - but not quite as good as some of the earlier Henderson books. As a part of the Uncommon Heroes series - which so far had all centered around the military and shared characters between the books - I was suprised that this book is non-military and shares no ties with the previous three books in the series. Plot does keep moving, although you don't get to understand what drives the "hero" as well as in previous books.

Dee Henderson is a favourite author in our house & this particular story, "True Courage" is my favourite of her books. (It has since been re-released as Kidnapped.)

Frank Hardin has been on the FBI's most wanted list for a while, with FBI Special Agent Luke Falcon & his partner FBI Special Agent Jackie Noner trying to track him down for the past year. He manages to stay one step ahead of them. This new assignment is special - this one will personally hurt Luke Falcon.

It is Labor Day weekend & Luke Falcon arrives at the crime scene of another of Frank Hardin's victims. This time it's Frank's girlfriend Karen. As Luke & Jackie get ready to follow up on leads, Luke receives a frantic call from Caroline Lane (his cousin's sister-in-law, & whom he has been dating for the past year) saying that Mark, Sharon & Benjamin haven't arrived at the holiday home. And so the nightmare begins as Luke begins the search for his missing family.

Caroline Lane had been expecting a weekend break with her family, & hopefully seeing Luke again. She hadn't been prepared for the storm that breaks over her as she struggles to deal with the fact her family is missing. Luke is used to this sort of thing, she isn't. Yet it is her steady faith that Luke draws comfort from, & her self-sacrifice that touches his heart.

This audio book version of "True Courage" has been abridged fairly well & Todd McLaren is a good narrator - a big plus for me where audio books are concerned! Also there is music in lots of places to give atmosphere; & sound effects - footsteps, dog barking, phone ringing, helicopter whirring, to name a few - which help to bring the story alive. Whether you're resting due to ill health, doing household chores or travelling in the car; this fast-paced, faith & action filled audio book is enjoyable to listen to over & over again!

Format: Paperback
FBI agent Luke Falcon met Caroline at the wedding of his cousin Mark to her sister Sharon. They are immediately attracted to one another and start dating; but he won't let her get beyond a certain point. After a year of the same situation, Caroline is ready to call it quits but before she has a chance to talk to her reluctant beau, Sharon and Mark and their son Benjamin disappear. As the hours pass, they are not heard from so Luke calls in the FBI treating it like a kidnapping case.
Mark is found in his car, injured and semi conscious. Bloodhounds find Ben hiding in the nearby woods. Sharon is held for several million dollar ransom but something goes wrong and the exchange is never made. While they are negotiating for another exchange, Caroline trades herself for her sister and Luke pulls out all the stops save the woman he now realizes he loves beyond measure.
TRUE COURAGE is a fantastic romantic suspense novel about a family whose faith and love for one another gives them the courage to get the job done. None of the characters that are injured and kidnapped fall to pieces but find the strength within themselves to keep on fighting for the freedom of the ones they love. One of the kidnappers is Luke's old enemy but the mastermind is someone who knows Mark and his family, their finances, their movements and their priorities. Finding out the identity of that person is will end the nightmare the family has been living under for over a week. Dee Henderson is a wonderful writer who pens an action packed thriller with heart.

True Courage was a really good book. I stayed up all night reading it. I was surprised that it wasn't about someone in the military because the other three books were.
Caroline Lane is devasted when her sister, Sharon, and her family disappear. And when only her brother-in-law Mark is found in a wrecked car her fears mount.It soon is clear it's a kidnapping and FBI agent Luke Falcon, Mark's cousin races against time to find Sharon and her son, Benjamin.He worries that innocent people will not survive..nor his relationship with Caroline.

Good book, bad audio sounds Jan. 5 2006
By Calamity - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you have a choice between the paperback and audio of True Courage, I would recommend the paperback. This audio CD has a male voice that seems too "acted." Also, sound effects and music have been added (keys jangling, annoying beepings for pagers, phones ringing, ominous music, etc.), and they really distract you from the story and your own imagination. Definitely go for the paperback.

THE best written book by Dee Henderson! WOW! What suspence! Aug. 14 2004
By Gail K Kroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This story line is one of reality and suspence but at the same time does not let go of spiritualy and romance. I couldn't put the book down. Let's face it. There are a whole lot of romance/suspence Christian book writers out there but none like Dee Henderson.... She can out do them all!

Never Guess Who Did It Dec 6 2010
By Bruce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dee Henderson has outdone herself with this book. It has sweet and loving Caroline, her sister Sharon, and sisterly Love in all its glory. It has a stalker, the FBI, big time banker, and of course the ex-con. Through the entire book Caroline's faith in God never wanes. Half way through the book one thinks they know who the bad guy is, but they don't. It's almost at the very end of the book when the kidnapper is uncovered. I read this book as a stand alone titled "Kidnapped'. It is also part of the Uncommon Hero Series and as I ordered it for friends it reverts back to "True Courage". Great christian fiction!
