This is an amazing book, definitely one of the best books I've read in the past few years (and I read a lot of books!). It reads like a thriller: I could not stop reading and turning the pages until I got to the end. The plot has some many unexpected but logical twists and turns that are absolutely gripping. But it's not just any thriller. It's real literature, both in the topic and the writing style.
Human trafficking is a real issue and a serious problem, and this book does an amazing job at showing how widespread and frightening the problem is. The characters involved in the story are interesting and realistic. I absolutely adored Gavin who is brave, smart, and manages not only to overcome his mild case of autism ( or Asperger's?) but use his more acute intuitive sense of people to his advantage. A lot of human interaction is in the tone of voice and non-verbal signals, not just words, and Gavin picks up on those signals well (better than "normal" people) in his work and in his rescue missions.
The whole idea of GPS tracking with the help of DNA was absolutely amazing to me. I'm not sure if it's reality or science fiction, but it sure seems possible. This book will thrill you, scare you, amaze you, and make you think. Once you read it, you won't forget it. It's that good.
