A Detective Al Warner Novel (Book 6)
Taken: A Detective Al Warner Novel (Detective Al Warner Suspense Book 6) by George A Bernstein The corpse of a Miami hooker is discovered in the Everglades, and Detective Al Warner is on it. He discovers other streetwalkers have disappeared, and a simple homicide is now a case of human trafficking. Nicki, a female undercover cop, goes on the streets, hoping to be snatched so she can use a concealed tracking device, but it’s taken from her before she can activate it. Maggie is offered a lucrative deal as a birth surrogate for a secret, wealthy couple. She’ll live nine months in managed seclusion. Another surrogate there disappears a month before her term. Maggie learns her fetus is a tool of extortion, and fears for her life. She attempts to flee the mansion, but her “hosts” refuse to let her go. Her life is trivial, but they need the child she carries. Trapped at the bordello on a remote ’Glades Island reached only by airboats, Nicki embarks on daring foray to find and activate the tracker. If she fails, she’ll become a sex slave like the other women imprisoned there, with little hope of rescue. Warner and his team eagerly await Nicki’s signal. Without that, there’s no clue to her location, and no idea of the deadly confrontation that awaits them. Warner is thrust into danger as he seeks to free the sex slaves and also rescue Maggie and a second infant before it’s too late. Lives are on the line, and only Al Warner can save them.
My Review: This was a story with some of the previous characters from the other books in this series coming back to help the main character to investigate missing and murdered women. While being well thought out it was written with a male’s point of view concerning the sex slavery of women. Showing no empathy and or emotion to describe the characters past their looks, left me wanting more. There were a few prejudices that came through in the telling of the story and I was unsure whether they were the authors own prejudices or the characters.
