Baroota is a fictional tale of Nick Hudson, an aging, retired cop attempting to get in one last mission to make a difference. He gets sucked into an off-the-books black ops mission to rescue victims of human trafficking being sold into sexual slavery.
He meets Nõnkos Zia or Nõn, a woman born in South Africa and a former victim of Muti-medicine - a type of medicine still practiced in South Africa that weaves the occult and human sacrifices into the locals belief system. She is also a victim of human trafficking, from which she barely escaped after taking revenge on her captors.
They are outsiders in a dark twisted tale of deceit, lies, and double crosses that take them to the Darien Gap in Panama, one of the most remote areas in the world, to hunt human traffickers.

Overall,Baroota is a pretty fun journey
Overall, I enjoyed the book. It was paced well. Unlike many books, their was never a time when I felt like I had to slog through meaningless/boring filler. The author did a nice job explaining the main character as you go through the story. I would recommend it to most friends. If they had a strong aversion to violence and some "gutter talk", I would not advise it.
The way Nick handled high stress encounters were all pretty memorable occasions. I thought Fortier did a good job making Nick an interesting character
Nick's surprise meeting with the military boys was one of several good scenes.
When Non recounts her life as a youth
A few spots the book wasn't quite as "tight" as I would have preferred. I believe if the book would have been a little bit longer that it would have been able to flow a bit smoother at a couple of areas. However, it was an overall entertaining audio book.
I received this audio book at no charge in exchange for a free review.
Awesome 1st book in a mind blowing series
