While Jess is giving some extra attention to a low life named Lucas Baker, she and Seth stumble upon an international organization, calling itself Globe Harvest, that barters in human lives. Striking a major nerve from her past, Jess is unable to stop herself from going after Globe Harvest.
Payton Archer is a former pro football player. His sister, Susannah, and his seventeen-year-old niece, Nikki, are his reasons for living. So when Susannah frantically calls him and says that Nikki has disappeared, Payton charges into action. The leads take him out of state (from Alaska) and all the way to Chicago. The main players come together and only by joining forces do any of them have a chance of locating Nikki and possibly getting a foothold into Globe Harvest.
***** This one hits all parents with one of their worst nightmares, their child disappearing. The most chilling part of this story is that such organizations and their actions DO exist. Jordan Dane paints a grizzly plot with such realistic characters that they seem to jump off the pages. Repulsively addicting! *****

Jessica Beckett is a bounty hunter investigating a child kidnapping ring. Payton Archer is an ex pro football player whose niece is kidnapped. It was almost 70% of the book before the two characters even met each other. There was a lot of information that I would have like a lot earlier. Like how Jessica and Samantha (a cop) met and how their friendship developed. What happened to Jessica as a child. We eventually get a bit of information on this but it's very late in the book. I didn't believe the romance (what little there was of it) between Jessica and Payton. I mean he spent more time with Samantha then he did Jessica plus as I mentioned they didn't even meet until the book was almost over.
I read the blurb of the next books and it looks like Jessica picks up a new love interest anyway. I kept putting this book down and it was quite awhile before I would come back to it. It was just okay for me and I won't be reading the rest of this trilogy.
Ex- football player, Payton Archer is trying to find his niece, Nikki who's disappeared. His search takes him to Chicago where Sam has taken over the case. Payton and Jessie along with the help of the Chicago Police Department and the FBI begin searching for Nikki and other missing kids who are being used by a group known to play in the human trafficking game. It's a race against time to get Nikki back but Payton won't give up, and Jessie can't. She faces her own demons every time she thinks of the missing kids. Together, they'll stop at nothing to save them and send the bad guys to hell, where they belong.
Sit tight, buckle in, and hold on, Evil Without a Face is a wild ride. The villains take Jessica, Payton, and everyone else on a high-speed chase to save Nikki and stop the bad guys. Outwardly, Jessica is tough as nails. She's scared, strong, and seemingly invincible but inside she's vulnerable and desperately needs some TLC. Payton carries his own internal scars, which is why when they meet, Payton and Jessie connect immediately. They are like kindred spirits, two halves of a whole. Along with the intense relationship that blooms between Payton and Jessie, is the frightening tale of internet predators. With excitement and danger on every page, Evil Without a Face is impossible to put down. Jordan Dane rocks my world once again with Evil Without a Face. I can't wait to read the elusive and mysterious Seth Harper's story next!

Jessica Beckett is a bounty hunter in Chicago. A victim of an abused childhood. Jessica has a personal vendetta against child abuser Lucas Baker. Even though he is not the one who abused her, she still is trying to find evidence to bust him. She steals his laptop, plants a tracer, and plans for him to lead her to an even bigger crime organization. Instead, Baker winds up dead with Jessica being the prime suspect for his murder.
Payton Archer is a has-been football player who brought his attitude and his alcohol addiction to fame. Not proud of himself, Payton lives alone in Alaska and continues to drown his sorrows. When his parents died young, Payton grew up fast, taking care of himself and his older sister. When his sister calls hysterical, he learns that his niece has disappeared. With the help of some police officials, he and his friend Joe are soon following Nicki's trail to Chicago.
Baker's laptop is linked to a multinational human trafficking organization, Globe Harvest. Jessica has a hunch that Baker was running kids. She thinks it is no coincidence that Payton is looking for his niece from Alaska, when Baker was expecting a package from Alaska on the same day. They team up, and find themselves on an action-packed, emotional rollercoaster ride across several continents.
Jessica is a smart and sassy heroine who will have you laughing and crying with her. She has guts, and is confident in her beliefs of right and wrong. Payton and Jessica are tentative with another for awhile, but soon they find something together worth hanging onto. EVIL WITHOUT A FACE is a non-stop action thriller that I couldn't put down. Terrific characters, a sound plot, and just the right amount of romance makes EVIL WITHOUT A FACE a sure winner!
