Summary
Dawn and Reese Spencer just can't get ahead. Between her desperate desire to start a family and his gambling debts, they barely keep afloat, even with well-paying Norfolk International port jobs. But their calculating co-worker has the perfect plan: help him smuggle containers of precious, illegal-human-cargo past U.S. Customs. For Dawn, risking the innocent lives of undocumented immigrants is unthinkable. But Reese persuades her that no one will get hurt. And once things proceed without a hitch and a fortune starts rolling in, the Spencers are sure their dreams are about to come true...
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In popular street-lit author Swinson's (The Mark, 2017) latest crime title, Dawn and Reese face huge challenges as young newlyweds. Debts, Reese's gambling problem, pressure from Dawn's family, and infertility issues all cause constant discord. Reese sees a way out when he is offered $15,000 for handling after-hours shipments on the docks. While Dawn is happy to pay some bills, she doesn't want him involved in human trafficking. The first transfer goes smoothly, but then people are found dead, and the men he worked with are murdered. Reese knows that he and Dawn are in danger, and they decide to run, even though he is willing to work with law enforcement to share everything he knows. Since the story begins with Dawn finding Reese shot, readers know immediately that they're in for high suspense in this fast-moving story, yet Swinson takes the time to portray Dawn with great sympathy as someone trying to follow her dream of having a family. The human-trafficking theme also makes for a thought-provoking, topical crime tale rich in memorable choices and consequences.--Alessio, Amy Copyright 2018 Booklist"
