The family dynamic is unusual in that there is mystery surrounding each of them and none of them know for sure what secrets the others have been keeping, this is revealed as the book progresses. The adventure is fraught with danger and intrigue.
Grace's character has a deep faith in God, but it's a personal thing, there is no preaching in the book, more that she seeks for help from that direction and struggles with having to kill to protect her loved ones.
Make sure you have plenty of time to start the book, its hard to put down!

The mother, whose name is Grace, is an archeologist and her daughter Madison is a hydrologist. Mark stays at the ranch to do the chores while his wife Grace occasionally travels. Mark is a retired CIA agent and their son, Jeff, works as a newscaster for the BBC. When mother and daughter are kidnapped, Mark and Jeff travel to the Middle East attempting to locate and rescue them. But there are other parties who desire the demise of the whole family, and another set of characters who will do all within their power to protect these precious people from harm and even death.
There is so much more going on in the book than I have space here to share with you. However, suffice it to say that this story packs a whole lot of action, danger, adventure, centered on the Madison family in this author’s debut novel. The amount of intrigue, discovery, travel and more that happens in a time frame of five days is simple astounding! When the family realizes they don’t know as much about what each other does or did for a living, well that just makes discovery all the more fun!
If you are a reader and know others who love to read fiction like I have described here, I hope you will consider placing a copy under the tree for a gift! (The recipient will thank you!)
The interaction of the SESOM group as well as the Madison family keeps the story entertaining. The tenseness of the bad guys trying to get the good guys along with the good guys trying to outwit the bad guys will keep you turning pages.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller with no foul language and no sex. Yes, it is possible and the author pulls it off nicely. I'm looking forward to more books by this author; especially if it involves the quite interesting Madison family.
It brought back memories of my family travels by car from Haifa to Eliat and all the bibical
places we visited.
Horton has shared the knowledge she gained during her travels and participation in
archaelogical digs in Israel and Jordan as part of an entertaining high-adventure story.
