The Breakthrough (Precinct 11) by Jerry B. Jenkins

Cover: The Breakthrough

Book Description:  As the youngest bureau chief and head of the Chicago Police Department's Major Case Squad, Boone Drake seems to have it all under control. Only those closest to him know that just a few short years ago, he lost everything that mattered to him in a tragic accident. After years of healing, his life is back on track. He recently married a wonderful woman named Haeley, adopted her son, bought a beautiful home, and rediscovered his faith. But Boone can't fight the feeling that something is about to go terribly wrong . . . again.When an all-too-personal case takes Boone to Beijing at a time when Haeley can least afford to let him go, Boone is forced to make a difficult choice. There he becomes enmeshed in a dangerous human-trafficking ring that takes him through the famed Hutong District's narrow streets, alleys, and hovels. Teamed with a former Liberation Army officer, Boone has one chance to pull off an elaborate sting and rescue a young boy before he disappears forever.
My Thoughts: I began reading Jerry B. Jenkins  books years ago when the Left Behind Series first appeared. Jerry's writing is quick witted and fiery...reminds me of toasting marshmallows on a campfire and then whoosh the marshmallow catches fire...the reader is caught of guard and is taken through a different field of vision.
I think it's important that the reader read, at least the first book in this series, The Betrayal, so that one can understand Boone Drake.  Drake has gone through some harrowing experiences and now that he is married to Haeley and has adopted her son, well, can a good cop ever let "things" go?!?! Not Boone!
The depths of human trafficking and the evil practically drip off of the pages...not for the weak of heart.  Jerry B. Jenkins makes a great case for helping those caught in this web of deceit and lies.
A captivating and courageous story in the third book of Precinct 11!
