"Powerful romantic intrigue."
Wade Benedict reluctantly agreed to carry out the dying
man's last wish that he rescues his daughter from the
oppressive Taliban imitated reign in Hazaristan. Leaving
the comfort of his Turn-Coupe, Louisiana home, Wade travels
to Asia to bring Chloe Madison back to the United States.
Chloe was born in America, but moved as a child with her
family here when her stepfather relocated to his homeland
following the Soviet pullout.
Wade is shocked when he fails to persuade Chloe Madison to
leave with him. Chloe believes her work to help women
obtain basic rights is important. However, soon she has no
choice, but to flee with the American, as Taliban-like
justice calls on her. As Wade and Chloe trek through the
mountains, they fall in love. The terror follows them to
the serenity of Louisiana.
Wade is a typical Benedict hero and Chloe is a strong woman
trying to do the right thing, but the key to this novel is
the descriptive plight of females in this part of the
world. The story line starts at an incredible pace as
readers learn swiftly how justice works. Though the book
switches locale to the Bayou too quickly, as Jennifer Blake
is a victim of her own Middle East portrait, the audience
will appreciate this powerful romantic intrigue.
