She's dedicated her life to ending violence. But has she moved too deep into a treacherous world?

When two Jane Does are killed on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, detective and behavioral specialist Avery North discovers they share something in common--a magnolia tattoo on their shoulders. Suspecting a serial killer, Avery joins forces with medical examiner Jackson Bryant to solve the crimes and prevent another murder. As they venture deep into a sinister world of human trafficking, Avery and Jackson are taken to the very edge of their abilities--and their hearts.

Dangerous Passage exposes a fully realized and frightening world where every layer peeled back reveals more challenges ahead. You'll be hooked from the start.

I thought this book sounded somewhat interesting when I signed up for the review but I wasn't sure if it would really grab my attention. The first few pages answered that question in spades. Lisa Harris has crafted a tale full of suspense and mystery that twists and turns in directions that I did not anticipate. Dangerous Passage is an apt title, for once you step into the pages you will not be able to exit until you have read the final page! Plans to set aside the book at "just one more" chapter's end were foiled as the tension and danger escalated and I stayed up into the wee hours to finish. I highly recommend this book and am adding Lisa Harris to my list of must-read authors.

Bonus: At the ACFW conference on Sunday, I saw a gal at the lunch table next to mine whose nametag said "Lisa Harris." What fun it was to meet her and tell her in person how much I enjoyed her book!
