Imagine you have just got married and are enjoying a honeymoon on your sailboat when the next thing you know is that you’re being forced to alter course and make an unacceptable delivery at gunpoint. Charles Abood explores this dilemma in Anybody's Daughter. The cost of failing to comply is death. How do you get out of the situation when you can’t exactly jump overboard and swim to shore in stormy lake waters, and just what is it you are being forced to deliver? Drugs? But you’re a respected lawyer and your wife is a schoolteacher, not criminals. If you don’t get killed you could end up arrested. Is there any way out of this situation? Using their combined intelligence and human decency, but at great danger to themselves and others on board, Adam and Evelyn find a solution. Though lives are indeed lost in the rather bloody conclusion, important lives are saved.

Anybody's Daughter is a ripper of a read, filled with so many unexpected twists that it’s impossible to stop turning the pages - definitely my kind of thriller. I love a book that moves quickly, doesn’t slow me down with paragraphs of description, has realistic characters with strong emotional appeal and with whom I easily identify, and then brings it all together cleverly with credible plot events. This book does all of that in a fast-paced 251 pages. Readers will close the book still asking themselves what they would do if faced with the choice of saving others or saving themselves. It’s a universal theme neatly explored through an important contemporary social issue - human trafficking - in a most pleasing thriller. Well done, Charles Abood.
