Robin’s novel, Deliver Us From Evil, follows a beautiful yet tough woman, Brannon Callahan, who works in a beautiful yet tough setting, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, as a search and rescue (SAR) helicopter pilot. Brannon has a strong faith and a decorated history of service in the Coast Guards and currently at the National Park, which have kept her one step ahead of on-the-job dangers. However, there’s no precedent for what’s about to happen.
After a blizzard takes down a small plane carrying U.S. Marshall Roark Holland (who’s already haunted by a recent tragedy), Brannon must save him in more ways than one, and safeguard the donor heart he’s transporting to a government witness on the edge of death. Otherwise, the largest child trafficking ring in history–with shocking links from Thailand to Tennessee–will slip further away into darkness along the Appalachian Trail.
Robin Caroll has authored eight previous books including Bayou Justice and Melody of Murder. She gives back to the writing community as conference director for the American Christian Fiction Writers organization. A proud southerner through and through, Robin lives with her husband and three daughters in Little Rock, Arkansas. She’s an author of Southern stories of mystery and suspense.

My Review:
Robin’s novel, Deliver Us From Evil, has death-defying moments, along with some romance, that keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning. As we read above, U.S. Marshall Roark is haunted by a recent tragedy, but Brannon has her own set if issues that keep popping up. The tension between them is palpitating throughout all the plot twists in the book, even in places you don’t expect!

The storyline brings out the horrors of child trafficking, along with the travesty of justice, in a way that opens your eyes to the plight of this horrific dilemma. It will give you a more healthy respect for the law enforcement and government officials who risk their lives for our safety and the children caught up in child trafficking.

This is a powerful book that opened my eyes to the vastness of child trafficking today! In one of the following sources, the United States and Japan are two of the leading countries involved, which shocked me. Here are some sites the author used for facts, but can also be used if you want to become involved. One could ‘Google’ child trafficking to find others, but use caution.

1. www.lirs.org Do a search under “child trafficking.”
