Series: To Catch a Thief
For security consultant Desiree Jacobs, the assignment was simple: make off with an ancient Mayan artifact and hand it over to the good guys in time to plan her wedding to ultra-fine FBI agent Tony Lucano.
Yet, in a world where no one is as they seem, Desi must decipher who the good guys arebefore she ends up in the hands of a ruthless enemy.
Suddenly, artifact recovery turns into archaeological espionage, and the woman who finds all the answers must now ask questions: Whos looting priceless antiquities underneath the nose of the baffled Mexican government? And what does a violent gang of drug and human traffickers have to do with missing artifacts?
Even with Tony on her side, Desi will need way more than luck to survive against the odds. Shell need the truthnot just to set her free, but to liberate many innocents caught in the snare of calculating evil.
In a Boston blizzard, Tonys boss sends his team to raid a ship suspected to be carrying sex slaves. When the raid goes badly for Tony, its not only a question of whether he will survive to see his wedding, but if he will be physically able to return to the FBI.
As Desis and Tonys investigations mesh, a gang leader called El Jaguar seems to be behind both the sex slave trade and the art thefts.
Reluctant Smuggler, the third book in the To Catch a Thief series, begins with a fast-pace and fascinating characters. It slows down in the middle as Tonys health crisis distracts the reader from the main plot a little too long but speeds up again nearer the end. Both Tony and Desi face situations that exceed their abilities and require dependence on God.
This book doesnt contain much scripture but depends more on reader familiarity with Christian ideas of dependence on God and personal responsibility. It includes a set of discussion questions in the back. It was enjoyable and I would like to read books one and two in the series. - Debbie Wilson, www.christianbookpreviews.com
