Taylor Pasbury, the daughter of a former Special Forces officer, had been hired to protect Simon Mason of Simon World Ministries in her role as security consultant. Simon Mason had been murdered and Kacey Mason, Simon's daughter, is living with Taylor in Simon's home. One day, Kacey and Taylor were on their way to question Elise Hovden, top assistant to Simon Mason, about the embezzled money and find her dead of an apparent suicide.
In the afternoon of that same day, a woman showed up at Taylor and Kacey's residence. The woman took out her camera and said to Taylor, "Smile, baby, I'm your mother." Her mother had disappeared 20 years earlier. Taylor and her mother manage to get themselves entangled in the mystery of the embezzlement, and they find themselves mixed up in a twisted, fast-paced mystery which manages to weave a lot of spiritual truth into the story. This book has many twists to keep the reader guessing until the end. I enjoyed it more that I thought I would. Jordan does a good job of weaving the spiritual into the story line without making it seeming contrived.
