Lien, an innocent village girl in Vietnam, is missing. Her father, Ngoc, is desperate and with help from a young Australian volunteer overcomes his years of reluctance and writes a letter to his father, a retired American army officer.
Ngoc’s letter shocks Peter Trutch. Torn between his sense of honor toward this unknown son and his contentedly pleasant life in Seattle with his devoted wife, Catherine, he hurls himself into his past and back to a country and memories that he had left behind 40 years earlier.
Lien is sold to a brothel in Cambodia, and in his frantic search for her, Trutch confronts not only his past but a seedy, corrupt world where bad cops, pimps, and the destitute clash with courageous international prevention workers and a few honest officials.
Along with Trutch, the listener will be outraged at the worldwide plague of sex trafficking.
