Format: Paperback
I'm thankful to have received a review copy of this captivating, surreal, suspenseful book that could have been ripped out of today's headlines. It was horrific to think the topic of this book is real and happening in current time. Although the story concentrates on the sex-trafficking business in Russia, this unthinkable industry is thriving world wide. Tom Davis states in his book Russian girls are taken and sent out of their country with promises of going to America, to enjoy the good life. Only one catch, they do go to American but end up in some of the booming sex-trafficking places such as Atlanta, Dallas and Seattle.

You might be tempted not to read this book because of the subject matter and the fact that it might make you feel uncomfortable. It's not easy to read about little girls being promised one thing and forced into another. My heart ached for these dear ones as these evil doers promised them the moon, only to get sold into a lifestyle of no return. The only way out was death.

Stuart Daniels returns in this book and is sent on another job. Stuart agrees to go to Russia because he feels this assignment is not as life threatening as the one he went to in Africa (in the last book Scared). After meeting his contacts in Russia, he's whisked into an unthinkable mission - one he can't turn down - not after having his world turned upside down in Africa, after meeting Adanna.

"Adanna may not have meant much to many in this world. But meeting her was the beginning of life for me. It changed the way I saw God. It changed the direction of my life. She taught me that the small things I do matter. My decisions today can save a life tomorrow.

Format: Paperback
I finished reading Priceless yesterday and am still processing the truth and call to action that God is speaking to my heart. The details of what transpires in sex trafficking of children boggles my mind. I cannot comprehend such ugly, awful sin. I realized how naive I am. It is hard to look sin in the face and stand up for truth. It is our nature to want to turn away and not look upon things that are hurtful. If we as Christ followers are not willing to stand up for truth - who will? I was struck throughout the book about the need for prayer warriors to pray for the children who are isolated and unprotected in this outrageous sinfulness brought on by man, to pray for those that God has called to step in the line of action and fire to rescue and care for these children. They are God's children - they are priceless indeed!!
Proverbs 3:27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.
Thank you Tom for your obedience to write about this topic. It is a beautiful story of God's redemptive love and power. There is much to be done. I am praying for each and every person who reads this book. God will give you the opportunity to respond in action for His children.
:)

Format: Paperback
Tom's first book Scared was good, but his second book Priceless is incredible! Though it is a novel in format the truths he brings forth are so revealing and heart wrenching. You can't read this book and remain unmoved. At times I had to put down the book and let what I had just read sink in. Other times, I had to read out loud to my husband passages that moved me to tears, only to see him moved to tears. Many times, I ended up in sobs, crying for the girls in the story, crying for my girls, whom I adopted as teens from Eastern Europe. This could have been their story. Tom's writings were so descriptive that I felt like I just jumped into the book and was involved myself. I felt as if I were in those scenes with the characters. I think every emotion I own rose up within me as I read this book. I cried with them, felt their pain and spewed angrily at the thugs. I cheered the girls on and rejoiced when they were found or rescued. I gasped, I prayed, I held my breath.
The beauty of redemption, love and sacrifice are wonderfully portrayed in this book.
I think Everyone needs to read this book. I've heard comments,when I've tried to tell others about the book, "I just can't read a book like that". I think everyone HAS to read a book like this. We can no longer ignore evil and let our children die. The Church has to step in and save them. Melissa Carter

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on June 24, 2010
Format: Paperback
Photojournalist Stuart Daniels found purpose and faith when he helped an African orphan (see Scared). Now he heads to Russia on his latest project. There his friend Katya asks him to say yes when someone calls him at his hotel room offering him a girl; she also says she will explain further.

However, Stuart soon learns that the orphan child he met on his last stay in Russia is in trouble. Human traffickers are selling Marina Smolchenko to the highest bidder in a sex slave auction. His efforts to rescue Marina lead him to freedom fighter Katya who risks her life to liberate the sex slaves. His faith in the Lord is reduced with his observation of humanity's cruelty and he wonders how God can allow this to happen to the innocent.

Like Stuart on his latest journey, readers will be stunned with what happens to people sold like commodities by human traffickers (Mr. Davis states 27 million with 1 million under eighteen years of age). The lead protagonist and the audience will ask why God allows such atrocities to occur while readers will also wonder if Stuart will rescue Marina and the others, and regain his faith. Thought provoking yet fast-paced and loaded with action, Priceless is not an easy read as this is Marina's profound shocking tale and the story of her "sisters" sold as sex slaves to wealthy clients around the globe (including Americans).
