IS A FATHER’S LOVE STRONGER THAN THE CHAINS OF SLAVERY?
The largest nation in Africa has become a killing field…
…two million tribal people are dead, victims of a brutal civil war or of systematic genocide, massacred by their own government. But that’s not why human rights photojournalist Ron Wolfson is risking his life there. He’s chasing a different story—investigating whispered reports of human trafficking, rumors of women and children in chains, auctioned off to the highest bidder, speculation that thousands of them disappear every day into the shadow world of modern-day slavery and are never seen again.
As Ron tracks the phantom story he knows is out there somewhere, Murahaleen guerrillas attack a small Dinka village, slaughter the inhabitants and kidnap a lone little girl to sell on the slave market. The child’s father goes after her, walks 500 miles into the North searching for her, and then forms an unlikely alliance with the American journalist.
Together, they follow a slave trail soaked in blood and tears. And together they suffer the savage retaliation of a ruthless slave trader. When the two face an unthinkable execution that will be broadcast live around the world, they must place their lives and the fate of their mission in the hands of a bloodthirsty mercenary and an orphan boy.
But time is running out. It may already be too late for them.
And too late to save the little girl before she vanishes forever into the belly of the beast.
