A Silver Medallion (A Crystal Moore Suspense Book 2) by James R. Callan is the thrilling sequel to A Ton of Gold. Crystal Moore finds a runaway slave in an old shed while visiting her grandmother. She is outraged at the suffering and abuse the young woman has endured just to keep her husband, still in Mexico, safe. Crystal is horrified when the young woman, Rosa, explains she isn't the only slave suffering at the hands of a notoriously wealthy Dallas man. There is another young woman working for the monster who keeps her entrapped in his giant house. Rosa's friend, Lucita, fears for the life of her two little girls, being held captive in Mexico. Crystal finds herself obsessing over Lucita's plight. She wants to help the tragic young woman, but how? Crystal works with her friends to find a way to save the young girls and reunite them with their mother. But how much is she willing to risk to help Lucita and her girls? How much is Crystal willing to lose? Can she reunite the children with their mother? Or is she endangering them all?
Filled to the brim with slavery, trafficking, smuggling, murder and secrets, A Silver Medallion is an entertaining, well-written book. The author obviously loves Mexico. His rich details describing Mexico and the people were engaging and made me feel like I was there with Crystal. Although a sequel, A Silver Medallion is a great stand-alone novel. I really enjoyed reading this book! It was interesting and full of action. The page-turning suspense kept me up well into the pre-morning! I look forward to reading future Crystal Moore suspense novels by James R. Callan.
