Publisher's Summary

A missing woman leads the alpha heroes on their boldest mission yet in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s searing Mountain Mercenaries novel.

It’s been ten years since Rex’s wife, Raven, disappeared from a Vegas casino. Never losing hope, he even formed the Mountain Mercenaries to help find her - and other missing wives, sisters, and children. Now Rex and his fearless team are following a lead to Lima, Peru, where the rescue operation is greater than they imagined. 

A day at a time. That’s been Raven’s motto for a decade. Once held captive by an elusive sex trafficker, she has an indomitable will to survive. But Raven’s not ready to leave Peru. She can’t. Not yet. Because her liberation from the barrios comes with devastating consequences. One wrong move and all hope will be lost to an unimaginable hell. 

For the Mountain Mercenaries, the stakes have been raised. The threats are escalating. But Rex hasn’t searched this long, risked so much, and come this far to lose Raven all over again.

Beyond amazing!

Love, perseverance, preservation, acceptance, and dedication. Don’t forget about loyalty, kindness, and trust. All things that define Raven and Dave. Their life together before, their lives while apart, their life when back together. This story, this series, ran a gambit of emotions, all starkly and beautifully told by the authour, of survival, of not being victimized, of never backing down. The pinnacle of it is this book, it brings it all together and shows the strength and the vulnerability of the human soul, heart, and spirit. It was scary and brave all at once and I love, loved, loved it for the life and lives it allowed us to see into. Thank you Susan, for it all!

Awesome!!!!

I love all Stoker books but of the books that have come out since Shelter for Penelope this is my favorite. Holy smokes. Without giving too much away, it is slightly different with so much of the book taking place away from home and the road to togetherness isn’t smooth at all despite finding each other early on but soo worth the rough ride. I always hate when a series ends but this was a great series finisher letting us in on years later for Raven & Dave but also clueing in to the fact that the other mercenaries and families are thriving. Well done!!! Loved it. When I started this series this book was not listed as coming soon so I wasn’t sure we’d get Rex’s story. I’m SO glad we did!

Great ending to this series!

I have been looking forward to this book since the preview at the end of ‘Zara’...and was not disappointed!! Lots of bad guys and drama but the Mountain Mercenaries came through in the end and Rex/Dave finally got his wife back! The extended epilogue put a neat bow on the series. Narrator’s work on all of the characters helped to make this a series ending to remember.

OH MY GOD!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED THIS BOOK IS #1

This is the best book I ever read. I cried, laughed. I don’t know if Susan Stoker will be a able to write an other book as beautiful as this. Every time I read on of her book I’m speechless. Susan I don’t know how you come up with these ideas. I love all your books. I would definitely recommend this book. I will describe the book to you readers out there, but I can tell you will not be disappointed. If you were not a # team Stoker# y’all be definitely after reading or listening to this book. Susan Stoker you have such beautiful mind.

Perfect ending!

What a satisfying ending to this series. I have waited forever for this story and I couldn’t have been happier with how it ended. Rex’s love for Raven was so beautiful and pure. The lengths he went for her showed such a strong unbreakable bond. It was amazing how the Mountain Mercenaries came together for the battle of Rex’s life. And David....OMG I love that kid. I love how the epilogue took place over many time periods so you can see how life ended up. We never get an epilogue like that. What a great book!

There's a lot of emotion in the story. I haven't needed a handkerchief in a long time, listening to the book. 👏👏
