Lost, James Patterson & James O. Born

Lost opening line: Miami International Airport isn’t exactly a tranquil space on a normal day – if there’s such a thing as a normal day at MIA.


My blurb:

Marie Meijer is determined to not let the human traffickers get away with their crimes in Amsterdam. But when Detective Tom Moon enters her world she realizes this goes further than her city. He is there to bring home children who were being smuggled into Miami. This is where he heads up a task force to combat international crime. Together can they figure out when the next wave of smuggled people will arrive in Miami, and can they figure out exactly where? Tom will go to whatever lengths he needs to, to save the children.

Detective Tom Moon and his multi-talented team face off against an international crime ring looking to seize control over America’s most exciting city, Miami.
Miami is Detective Tom Moon’s home and heartland. When he’s asked to lead a new FBI task force tackling international crime, he’s proud to represent his beloved city.
But his arrest of a man trafficking children from Amsterdam into Miami International airport opens an investigation that will lead Moon into the depths of a vast crime syndicate. An underground network that is bigger and more powerful than he could possibly imagine.
Moon is devoted to his city and its citizens – but will that be enough to save them?

My verdict:

This book opened my eyes to the life of the women in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. And to the horror of what people are capable of in this underworld life. An easy read from these authors.

  1. sounds like an intriguing story.

    We were in Amsterdam a couple of years ago, and we just had to walk through the red light district just to say we did so. It was kind of depressing.
