Wicked Disregard isn’t a book for the faint of heart. Book 3 in Barbra Ann Derksen’s Finders Keepers series delves once again into the world of human trafficking and puts a gut-wrenching face on the victims that will leave readers forever changed.

Christine Smith opened her investigative agency, Finders, specifically to find lost children. She expected to go up against non-custodial parents but evidence in her latest case – the disappearance of Samantha Anderson – points to a much more sinister foe: human trafficking and pedophilia. A childhood victim of abduction herself, Christine knows the fears of the children she’s hunting for and she’s willing to take great personal risks if she can bring them home.
Christine and her service dog, Chief, follow the minutest clues to lead them to the trafficker’s lair. The deeper she delves, the more frightening the information she turns up. With her friend and fellow investigator Jeremy helping wherever he can, Christine uncovers evil that sits in the police station, attorney’s offices and even judges’ chambers. Who can she trust to get justice for these children? Will she finally see that God’s hand has been on her investigations throughout?

As if her investigations weren’t enough to occupy her mind, she’s also trying to decide if she wants to take her rightful place as head of Rompart Industries. Using her real name, Melissa Rompart, Christine meets resistance from the board of the company. With her attention divided, can she make good decisions for the company or will she have to give up the investigating she loves for the position she was born to?

I’ll say it again: this book is NOT for the faint of heart! I qualified it as a Thriller because there were so many sections of it where my heart threatened to pound out of my throat. It was that intense. If you think human trafficking happens somewhere else, think again. If you think pedophiles live somewhere else, think again. This book will open your eyes to the dark underbelly of human trafficking unseen by most of us but lived by many. Warning: this book may cause you to look for ways to help. It may shake your safe foundations. I know it shook mine!

I received this book through in exchange for my honest review.

Rating PG-13: Christine hunts for children who have disappeared into the evil that is human trafficking There are many instances that will turn the stomach of any parent who reads this, let alone young children. I recommend caution even with early teens. It’s an excellent story and much of the depravity against children is “off screen”, so to speak, but readers won’t walk away unscathed in their hearts from this one!
