A beautiful yet tough woman working in a beautiful yet tough setting, Brannon Callahan is a search and rescue helicopter pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Strong faith and a decorated history of service have kept her one step ahead of on-the-job dangers, but there's no precedent for what's about to happen. After a blizzard takes down a small plane carrying U.S. Marshal Roark Holland (already haunted by a recent tragedy), Brannon must save him in more ways than one and safeguard the donor heart he's transporting to a government witness on the edge of death. Otherwise the largest child trafficking ring in history-with shocking links from Thailand to Tennessee-will slip further away into darkness along the Appalachian Trail.
A beautiful yet tough woman working in a beautiful yet tough setting, Brannon Callahan is a search and rescue helicopter pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Strong faith and a decorated history of service have kept her one step ahead of on-the-job dangers, but there’s no precedent for what’s about to happen. After a blizzard takes down a small plane carrying U.S. Marshal Roark Holland (already haunted by a recent tragedy), Brannon must save him in more ways than one and safeguard the donor heart he’s transporting to a government witness on the edge of death. Otherwise the largest child trafficking ring in history—with shocking links from Thailand to Tennessee—will slip further away into darkness along the Appalachian Trail.
Robin Caroll has authored eight previous books including Bayou Justice and Melody of Murder. She gives back to the writing community as conference director for the American Christian Fiction Writers organization. A proud southerner through and through, Robin lives with her husband and three daughters in Little Rock, Arkansas.
In Deliver Us From Evil, Robin Caroll raises awareness of child trafficking and emphasizes the importance of Christian attributes and practices. As the novel begins, what starts off as a simple delivery job suddenly turns into the discovery of an enormous child trafficking ring. When a crucial witness to cracking the trafficking case is hospitalized for heart problems, US Marshal Roark Holland is assigned to deliver the replacement heart via helicopter to the hospital to save the witnesss life. However, the helicopter goes down and Brannon Callahan, a National Park Ranger, must save Roark and the heart in a race against time, knowing that innocent lives are at stake.
While Deliver Us From Evil is an excellent combination of mystery, suspense, action, and romance, it is not without a strong Christian core. Several issues, such as the power and importance of prayer and Scripture memorization, are highlighted and displayed through the characters. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective (James 5:16).
Overall, the book is written very well. Its action-packed and romantic without being graphic, sub-plots engage interest and show different aspects of the story, and Caroll does a great job of making the reader feel the plots tension through the books many emotions. The characters are dynamic, deep, and believable, while exemplifying what it is (and isnt) to be a true follower of Christ.
Because of the variety of sub-plots and the learning experience, Deliver Us From Evil will appeal to a wide audience. Those who like adventure, romance, mystery, and inspirational genres would greatly enjoy this book. It could very well be life-changing. Matt Maine, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Some time ago, my husband and I watched a television special on child trafficking. As a mother of three daughters, I couldnt stop the ache in my heart long after the show was over. I couldnt get the image of these poor girls faces out of my mind. The horrors these children endure in their poverty-stricken country is horrible enough, but to be brought to America and further exploited and abused is appalling. When my outrage settled deep inside me, I knew I had to write a story about this most serious issue.
Researching this storyline drained my emotions as well as educated me. I couldnt believe how often this atrocity occursand I had no clue! While I took certain fictional liberties and invented the congressional coalition, FACE is a very real and very proactive organization in addressing these childrens plight. You can visit their website at: http://www.un.or.th/TraffickingProject kingProject/FACE/face_home.html. I commend their efforts and presence in Thailand.
I must commend the often unsung heroes of the National Park Service Rangers. Until I began on this book, I didnt realize the enormous job they hold and the intense training theyve undergone to be a ranger. My hat goes off to these amazing men and women who save lives, educate, and serve the public.<>p> I hope that you enjoy the journey into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park as much as I did when writing this story. These characters came alive for me, and I hope this story touches and blesses you.
Many blessings, Robin Caroll

Tell us a little about yourself. I love boxing. I love Hallmark movies. I love fishing. I love scrapbooking. Nope, I've never fit into the boxes people have wanted to put me in. I grew up in Louisiana in the 70s as the baby in my familyadored, but never spoiled. (My two older brothers and two older sisters made sure of that.) The writing bug bit early. At 7 years old, I started writing skits and performing them for my family. I've never stopped. I got married in 1989, have three daughtersnineteen, ten, and eightand recently became a grandmother to a grandson. I'm passionate about writing, but also about giving back to the industry that has given me my dreams. I'm the past president of ACFW (2007 and 2008) and am currently the director of the annual ACFW writer's conference. I'd describe myself as Spiritual, not religious, with a diverse Christian background. Bottom line? I love Jesus and will follow Him wherever He leads me.
What was your motivation behind this project? The idea for DELIVER US FROM EVIL came from watching a horrifying documentary about child trafficking. Id been totally unaware that such modern day slavery was occurring right here in the United States! I began doing research and realized I had to write a book about this travesty of our times. Hence, the issue in the book was born.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope this book helps raise awareness of human trafficking.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Writing certain scenes about these children that are trafficked in for prostitution literally had me crying in a heap. But I knew it needed to be told.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Some of my favorite authors are: Colleen Coble, Tosca Lee, James Scott Bell and Terri Blackstock.
