Publisher's Summary

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.

Awesome 1st book in a mind blowing series

Starts off with a great premise. Off the books black ops team to go after sex traffickers...from there the plot twists in a crazy direction that couldn't be predicted. At that point you take a rollercoaster ride of action that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Listened
Optimal at 1.25. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review

An action-packed tale of second chance glory

Our hero is Nick, a smart-mouthed cocky former cop and ex-marine who is retired, but itching to get back into some kind of action. I wish we had gotten a little more back story on Nick. I think the story would have been enriched if we knew some more about this self-proclaimed a$$-hole who has a personal vendetta against the men who perpetuate human trafficking. On a seemingly serendipitous occasion, an acquaintance offers him a chance for second glory...on a top secret, under-the-radar mission to extract the victims of human sex trafficking and eliminate their captives. His personal vendetta won't allow him to refuse, so he signs up, even though he feels that something isn't quite right with the whole thing. We then meet Nõnkos (Nõn); a former victim of human trafficking who has escaped and made a life as a freelance reporter. She also joins the mission, under the impression that she is to document everything to create awareness among the public about the worldwide human trafficking problem. They soon both discover that the whole mission was a guise for something else...something sinister that thrusts them into a remote area of Panama where they must fight for their lives. The book is short because the author wastes no space on fluff. In a way I wish he had taken a little more time for character development, but I still certainly enjoyed the story. The narration was good...especially foreign accents. Spot on in my opinion, and really brought the story to life.

I received this book at no charge via AudioBookBoom in exchange for my honest review.
