When an all-too-personal case takes Boone to Beijing at a time when Haeley can least afford to let him go, Boone is forced to make a difficult choice. There he becomes enmeshed in a dangerous human-trafficking ring that takes him through the famed Hutong District's narrow streets, alleys, and hovels. Teamed with a former Liberation Army officer, Boone has one chance to pull off an elaborate sting and rescue a young boy before he disappears forever.
The CPD family supports Boone in several meaningful ways (unofficially, of course) as his investigation takes him to the narrow streets, alleys, and hovels of a famed hutong district in Beijing, China, to the ancient city of Tianjin. You feel the clock ticking as you turn the pages. The series of personal crises confronting Boone and his family challenge his recently-renewed faith.
Throughout the entire series is Jenkins' sustained ability to take what appears to be a dichotomy of Boone, the professional police officer and, Boone, the struggling believer, and meld them together in a realistic and entertaining manner. Jenkins brings police department authenticity to the reader. Biblical references are used sparingly but powerfully. It is, indeed, unfortunate that this is the final book in the Precinct 11 series. - Gary A. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Suspenseful, Full of Action, DangerAugust 31, 2013eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4It took some time for me to get involved in the plot at first, because the main character seemed to have a vague background. However, his current plight soon seemed to override his past and I did care about him and his family. I was glad it was noted up front that this is the third in a series. I should have read books one and two first, because I would have known more about his past and been connected sooner. The suspense was done quite well. There was tragedy, hope, intrigue, and crime drama, but I do not wish to spoil the story for anyone by being specific. I was worried for the characters and wanted to cheer them on. The secondary characters were very supportive, admirable for any church family. Even though I felt for a few moments that the book was a platform for the author's views, he did effectively give a view of the very devastating possibilities in crimes against children. I wondered if the plot was just a bit too full of dramatic turns, but in all, it really got me involved and it was a satisfying read.

This book was a little hard to get into at the beginning because it is assumed that one has read the previous novels, which I hadn't. The book starts with an abduction (which as it played out I kept wanting to shout, "no - watch out!"), but turns quickly into a human trafficking nightmare. But after the first chapter I found it impossible to put it down until the last page.
