"When men are innocent, life shall be longer." Emerson

Vanessa Michael Munroe is an assassin who has nightmares about her past. She understands her killing capability and when her best friend, Logan, asks for her help, she can't refuse.

Logan explains that eight years earlier, his friend Charity's daughter, Hannah, was abducted from her school and taken across the Mexican border to a cult known as "The Chosen. Followers of The Profit have hidden Hannah and shielded her abductor. Hannah was age five at the time and now other members who have escaped from the group know where she's located.

Munroe poses as a donor and makes contact with members of the cult in South America. She is able to gain entrance to one of the group homes but when she sees Hannah, she thinks that if Hannah has been brainwashed, she'll be hard to rescue.

The reader understands the level of indoctrination that the children have been subjected to.

The book is disquieting at times when we see the vulnerability of the children but it is still a wonderfully evocative novel that will remain in the reader's mind with the thoughts of missing and lost children.
