About the Book
The FBI thought the boys were safe.
So did their parents.
So did the hospital staff.
That is, until people began dying. More than a hundred arrest warrants were served and those who took part in the human trafficking ring were arrested.
However, six dangerous men escaped and go into hiding. Led by Detective Anthony Dominico, these men vow revenge on those who forced them to run and no one is safe. Not Brett McGovern; not his younger brother Bobby; not George Tokay; not the twins, Randy and Billy. These boys are in danger and live in fear that at any moment, they could be murdered along with their families.
Worse, the FBI has no clues and no leads. Not even a place to begin looking.
