Summary:


A mother’s suicide threatens to destroy a family legacy. Her sons, Sam and Daniel, are forced to leave their comfortable worlds behind and search for a woman they believe can unlock the secrets that have remained hidden. They are propelled into separate journeys from Los Angeles to the heart of the Zambezi where they are forced to confront a man known as Die Duiwel, the Devil. On their adventures they will find themselves in a place where death is one breath away, where thousands of children are disappearing into the darkness, and where the woman they are searching for is on the hunt for revenge. When they stand face-to-face with the forgotten slaves of Africa they will fight to redeem what has been lost. 



Excerpt:



Ten years later I had my hands full with two young boys while John was busy traveling the world. I went with him on occasion, but for the most part I stayed home and watched my babies grow into young men. At times it was as if I were a single parent. I could’ve spoken up. I could’ve objected to the sacrifices we made in the name of God. Maybe I should have, but I didn’t. Instead I enjoyed the comforts of being a wife, our beachfront home, a private jet leased by the church, a cabin in Lake Isabella, John’s seven figure salary, as well as his book royalties. A bonus was the respect given to us whenever we entered a room by those who didn’t know us. It was flattering, and addicting.

This isn’t my life anymore.

I’ve been locked up here for one thousand and ninety five days. I’ve had time to think about the choices I’ve made. I’ve thought about what is best for everyone. I’ve become a burden. I know it. I feel it. I hate it. The whispers inside tell me there’s only one decision to make, undoubtedly the hardest one of all. It goes against everything I’ve believed.
But nothing is the same as it once was.
God forgive me.

That excerpt is very intriguing. What happened to her life? How did she get there? I'm assuming she's the one who commits suicide. It's a great excerpt that presents more questions than it answers.

Thanks for hosting today!

Here's another exclusive excerpt:

11:00 AM

The wheels of South African Airways Flight 947 lifted off for its final leg after endless hours packed like a sardine from LA to Atlanta to London to Zimbabwe.

Economy. Row forty-five. Window seat. He'd survived the meeting with Bowman, a face off with Sam, and leaving Brooke behind. As the hours ticked by his decision to go alone hit him like a ton of bricks. An uneasiness shot through his veins as he realized he may have just made the worst mistake of his life.

The book looks very interesting!
Thanks for the giveaway!

I have let my book collection and reading material be overwhelmed by paranormal and young adult books. Perhaps I should consider going back to my roots and reading a good mystery. I think this may be the first book I will read when I transition and expand the genres I enjoy. Sounds very interesting.

This sounds like a great book. :) I really like the title. <3

Here's another exclusive excerpt:

An ear splitting, bone chilling, scream echoed off the walls. Danny froze, unable to see anything in front of him. A child's voice yelled out in agony. It was more than despair, it was pure evil. Danny turned to run but the strong grip from Damas pulled him back. Their pace quickened. Footsteps pounded against the concrete. As the end of the hallway, the man pulled a ring of keys from his pocket and fumbled for the right one to unlock a padlock that secured a thick rusty chain to a metal gate. The gate opened to an underground room.

Sounds like a great read!!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Oh, wow! It sounds like the author has traveled just about everywhere! I'm sure his firsthand knowledge of Africa has added a lot to his book. I've added it to my TBR list.

Yes! Totally can't wait to read this! Adding it to my TBR list... Love that cover, too ; ) I always wonder how much power they have over the direction of the design of their book cover. My brother just got into designing book covers and would like to know what he should expect! Thanks for sharing with us and Thanks for the giveaway!
