Lost (Tom Moon, 1)

In this action-packed thriller, Miami just got a lot more dangerous-especially for one innocent young woman running for her life. 

The city of Miami is Detective Tom Moon's back yard. He's always kept it local, attending University of Miami on a football scholarship, and, as a Miami PD officer, protecting the city's most vulnerable.

Now, as the new leader of an FBI task force called "Operation Guardian," it's his mission to combat international crime. Moon's investigative team discovers that the opportunistic "Blood Brothers"-Russian nationals Roman and Emile Rostoff-have evaded authorities while building a vast, powerful, and deadly crime syndicate throughout Europe and metropolitan Miami.

Moon played offense for U of M, but he's on the other side of the field this time. And as the Rostoffs zero in on a target dear to Tom, they're not playing by anyone's rules.

Deceive Moon is a very engaging character. His profound sense of morality is engaging, and he is in the right profession to help keep citizens safe. His relationship with the trafficked children is heart warming. His home life with sister and mother makes him a character with a big heart. It’s good he is on our side.
Loved this book. Loved Tom Moon and his family and coworkers. If someone doesn't convert this to a movie, they're missing a great opportunity. Meanwhile, can we please have more of Tom Moon? Please?

This is a story about human trafficking. As a story it is quite okay (much better than Patterson’s horrendous Cajun Justice though!) about the horrible topic of human trafficking. The action is rather predictable and not always believable. Most of the story takes place in Miami, but part of it is located in Amsterdam. Reading that part, as a Dutchman, was very distracting because of several unnecessary mistakes. For example: Quaint sounding Dutch names of streets were used, such as Achterzijds Voorburgwal, whereas others were suddenly translated (Keizersgracht became Emperor’s Canal). At some point people were in Haarlem (a town just outside Amsterdam) looking down a hill towards a building. But there are no hills in Haarlem; some quick internet research would have shown that that part of the country is very flat. A police officer yells “Politie.Stoppen” to a fleeing criminal. This is the literal translation of “Police. To Stop”. Every police officer would use the imperative “Stop!” instead of “Stoppen”. The authors should have done better research or just ask a native Dutch person to check their manuscript.

This book introduces a great new character - Det. Tom Moon. Former college football player with a law degree. Currently heading up a task force for the FBI investigating international sex trafficking. While the most awful current crimes appear to involve terrorism and drugs, international sex trafficking is right up there with them in terms of human toll and damage. Some of the villains in this story are colorful and sociopathic. Moon and his team are in great danger dealing with these awful people, but they close out their case successfully. I hope James Patterson will bring Tom Moon back again. Fred Dimond

This author has again provided an amazing story on a topic that has been overlooked by law enforcement for much too long. It is amazing to know of so many people entrapped by human traffickers in this day and age. All one needs to see is the debacle of the Jeffrey Epstein affair to see how money buys silence. A disturbing yet gripping tale for me.
