Publisher's Summary

Army combat veteran Ty Stone has now joined the ranks of DKI, a veteran-operated organization waging war on human trafficking. He splits his time between training in Arizona and his home in Virginia. He's doing better at the training than at winding down, struggling with his relentless PTSD symptoms if he has too much time on his hands.

Ty is eager to help when a local law enforcement contact involves him in the investigation of a drug treatment clinic rumored to be buying children from their desperate patients. While Ty brings in some of his DKI resources, he can't stop at that. Unable to stay in his lane, he becomes obsessed with the hunt for a pregnant drug addict intent on staying out of the legal system. She knows if she can have her baby without legal entanglements, the undocumented pregnancy will bring in the biggest payday she's ever seen.

Despite progress, Ty is still struggling on all fronts - trying to keep his symptoms under control and avoid making impulsive decisions. He's constantly running afoul of the rules. He knows in his heart that the hunt for traffickers is his calling, but can he do it by the DKI playbook? 

When the answers comes, it takes Ty in a direction no one could have predicted. One from which there is no coming back.

it was like having Batman read me a story...

I hate batman! As much as I love Franklin Horton's books, this narrator is super annoying. 5 stars all the way across the board if you get rid of this guy. Pro tip ; if you increase the story speed up to about 1.15x he sounds less douchie.

I wanted to like Ty Stone.

The first book was great. Ty was fighting off the dark places and daemons in his head. I get it. This book was a chore to get through. Our protagonist was a whiney brat for most of the novel. Then by the end of it he was no longer the good guy doing good things. He was a murderer. Plain and simple.

We can love the Mad Mick for doing bad things for the right reasons. Connor was never supposed to be a good guy. He was just OUR bad guy. Ty was the vulnerable hero. He was not prefect but he was a hero. Now I don't know what he is besides a petulant child.

I wanted to like these books

I got the first 2 books in this series to try out. I waited until I was into the 2nd book before I wrote this. I don’t think there are any spoilers….
Also, the subject of these books is very timely and important, human trafficking is beyond a problem and needs to be fought harder. PTSD and the related issues are killing vets in staggering numbers. So when the author addressed both in a thriller I was very interested.
I like the author and have read other things of his, in the apocalypse area, that I liked.
The narrator was ok in the first but I think they changed narrators for the second book and it was worse.
As for the characters, I couldn’t buy into them. There really was nothing to them other than the surface problems/issues. EVERY interaction was started off with something to do with his PTSD. Understanding it can be devastating with some vets, it was everywhere. Almost every vet in the books was a “combat” vet and had “demons”. The main character was very arrogant in dealing with others “he knows best”.
The dialogue between characters seemed forced and artificial. I don’t think there was one conversation that seemed to flow correctly.
I really wanted to be able to get into these books back couldn’t. I stopped listening halfway through the second

Another excellent book

Another excellent book by Franklin Horton! While I understand the sink hole that can open up with PTSD, it bothered me a little that Ty kept making “stupid decisions”. However, that’s never been part of my own sink hole, so I can’t really judge. While overall, people have the same symptoms, it differs a little between each person. I enjoyed this continuation of Ty’s life and his confusion about what he should be doing. I look forward to seeing what comes next.

Must Read

Honestly this is one of the best books you'll find. It can be tough at times due to the reality of how evil people truly are but it's such a great read and I had a hard time even taking a break.

Ty Stone takes on Child tracking

Excellent book. It kept me engaged. Scary to think this happens in real life. I’d recommend to adult readers.

Great ending!

Starting to remind me of a Ben Coes or Dewey Andreas thriller. Franklin did not disappoint, again!
