As the youngest bureau chief and head of the Chicago Police Department's Major Case Squad, Boone Drake seems to have it all under control. Only those closest to him know that just a few short years ago, he lost everything that mattered to him in a tragic accident. After years of healing, his life is back on track. He recently married a wonderful woman named Haeley, adopted her son, bought a beautiful home, and rediscovered his faith. But Boone can't fight the feeling that something is about to go terribly wrong . . . again.
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.
Detective Boone Drake is back in action in The Breakthrough, the final book in the Precinct 11 trilogy by Jerry B. Jenkins. In the first book, The Brotherhood, Boone, a detective in the Gang Enforcement Section of the Chicago Police Department (CPD), masterminded the most massive sting in CPD history. Book two, The Betrayal, picked up with Boone recovering from his near-fatal wounds sustained at the end of The Brotherhood and searching for the source of the leak in the upper echelons of the CPD that led to the near-assassination of the key witness and Boone's injuries. In The Breakthrough, now-Chief Drake (the youngest bureau chief in CPD history), head of the city's Major Case Squad, takes temporary leave from the CPD to identify the key players in an international human trafficking ring for a very personal reason, forcing him to leave his comatose wife's bedside.
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
