Joss Crawford is an FBI agent working for a special task force that is a little different than most: Many of the agents have special psychic powers. Joss is known as a mirror - someone who can take the abilities of others he is mind-melded with. This makes him a very valuable agent.
Dru Chapman is working privately undercover, trying to infiltrate a ring of human traffickers. She has been undercover for two years and has gotten so deep that she is about to marry Patrick, a truly evil man, to see that the ring is broken up and Patrick is dead. Dru has her own psychic abilities; she is called a Psychometric and can read the thoughts of those she touches. When she touches Patrick, she sees the evil in his mind.
Since Joss is a mirror, he will need some extreme abilities to help the task force, so he is getting them from Jillian, a very powerful 14-year-old. It was Jillian who got them involved; she "found" out about the women who were missing while on a family trip and could not get the images and voices out of her mind.
The danger to everyone escalates as they try to get the girls out of the compound while the guards are shooting anything that moves, and yet the man everyone wants is not around. The fact the Dru desperately wants Patrick dead leaves another dangerous mission ahead.
My take: I really enjoyed this book. The characters are intriguing, and the psychic element adds to the danger and suspense. The subject matter is disturbing, and Walker does an excellent job telling the story. This is the third in the series, and although it features characters from the first two books, I was not lost, and the flow of the story worked well.
My rating: I recommend it.
