Soon he becomes a key player in a dangerous campaign to rescue helpless women trapped in the sex-slave trade.

Tom Davis’ Priceless takes readers on an eye-opening journey, alongside Stuart Daniels, to the coldest parts of Russia where girls are kidnapped and forced into selling their bodies over and over in order to make money for their captors. Right from the beginning, Davis keeps readers turning pages with impromptu rescue missions, close calls, heart-wrenching scenes, and spiritual warfare.

Stuart Daniels is a photojournalist from America on assignment in Russia, covering stories of injustice and social deprivation. His passion for shedding light on situations of maltreatment comes from his previous experience in Africa. Now, after arriving in Moscow, Stuart is convinced to postpone his assignment and help an old friend, Katya, who shares his heart for “the least of these” (Matt. 25:40). Stuart finds himself in the midst of danger and uncertainty, but he also experiences God’s faithfulness and protection.

At the urgent request of Katya, Stuart risks his life to save two girls who have been delivered to his hotel room for sixty dollars. With the threat of the girls’ handlers being close by, Stuart listens closely to Katya’s instructions and anxiously awaits the next move. Being told parallel to the fast-paced story of Stuart is the agonizing tale of Marina, a young orphan girl Stuart met on a previous trip to Russia. Once Marina becomes too old for the orphanage, she is left to fend for herself. Those who offer her assistance turn out to be the very people Katya was trying to protect her from. Throughout the book, Marina experiences a roller coaster of hopeful and hopeless situations. Though she questions her faith and her worth in God’s eyes at times, she continues to look to Him for strength.

Davis does an excellent job of bringing to light an issue that many people seem to ignore or are simply not aware of. His writing style is a bit rough at times, but his use of a first-person point-of-view helps to keep the story moving. The characters’ dialogue is very well crafted, and Davis has included some Russian language mixed in with English. The translation of the Russian immediately follows it. Also, Davis writes from a Catholic view and cleverly interweaves numerous Bible references throughout the book.

Reading Priceless was not only intense and intriguing, but also informative, inspiring, and convicting. Once I got used to the switches from present narrative to back-story and back again, I became engrossed in the plot. I couldn’t stop reading until I found out what happened to Marina and how her story ultimately paralleled Stuart’s. I highly recommend this book to older teens and adults; in order to show the reality of the situation, there are a few disturbing scenes. Taking all of this into account, Tom Davis’ Priceless is a great story. – Nicole E. Dynes, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    A message that is timely & must be heard!!

    One can not escape a sense of responsibility after reading this book!

    We must choose to be involved in stooping these horrors: we can't love God and ignore the plight of his children, no matter how uncomfortable it makes us feel - we arre called to kove & that means called to action!!!

    The subject matter is thought provoking. One I cringe to think about yet it is very real and heartbreaking. An eye opener. Very well written. Another dark side of the times that needs considerable prayer.

    One of the most eye-opening, heartbreaking, suspense-filled books I have ever read. If you start, you won't be able to stop. Upon completing this book I was inspired and motivated to look into what is happening, not only in Russia but in our home Countries as well, and what I can do to help make a difference.

    This book is a riveting, wonderful, challenging read. Tom Davis has presented a part of the world we want to pretend doesn't exist, and reminds us that God has called us to be His hands and feet, to reach out. It is a well written book, I could not put it down, read it in two days. And thankfully, Tom Davis gives us information on how we can get involved and help!!!!

    Tom's first book Scared was good, but his second book Priceless is incredible! Though it is a novel in format the truths he brings forth are so revealing and heart wrenching. You can't read this book and remain unmoved. At times I had to put down the book and let what I had just read sink in. Other times, I had to read out loud to my husband passages that moved me to tears, only to see him moved to tears. Many times, I ended up in sobs, crying for the girls in the story, crying for my girls, whom I adopted as teens from Eastern Europe. This could have been their story. Tom's writings were so descriptive that I felt like I just jumped into the book and was involved myself. I felt as if I were in those scenes with the characters. I think every emotion I own rose up within me as I read this book. I cried with them, felt their pain and spewed angrily at the thugs. I cheered the girls on and rejoiced when they were found or rescued. I gasped, I prayed, I held my breath.

    The beauty of redemption, love and sacrifice are wonderfully portrayed in this book.

    I think Everyone needs to read this book. I've heard comments,when I've tried to tell other, about the book, I just can't read a book like that. I think everyone HAS to read a book like this. We can no longer ignore evil and let our children die. The Church has to step in and save them.
