Publisher's Summary

A missing woman leads the alpha heroes on their boldest mission yet in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s searing Mountain Mercenaries novel.

It’s been ten years since Rex’s wife, Raven, disappeared from a Vegas casino. Never losing hope, he even formed the Mountain Mercenaries to help find her - and other missing wives, sisters, and children. Now Rex and his fearless team are following a lead to Lima, Peru, where the rescue operation is greater than they imagined. 

A day at a time. That’s been Raven’s motto for a decade. Once held captive by an elusive sex trafficker, she has an indomitable will to survive. But Raven’s not ready to leave Peru. She can’t. Not yet. Because her liberation from the barrios comes with devastating consequences. One wrong move and all hope will be lost to an unimaginable hell. 

For the Mountain Mercenaries, the stakes have been raised. The threats are escalating. But Rex hasn’t searched this long, risked so much, and come this far to lose Raven all over again.

Awesome!!!!

I love all Stoker books but of the books that have come out since Shelter for Penelope this is my favorite. Holy smokes. Without giving too much away, it is slightly different with so much of the book taking place away from home and the road to togetherness isn’t smooth at all despite finding each other early on but soo worth the rough ride. I always hate when a series ends but this was a great series finisher letting us in on years later for Raven & Dave but also clueing in to the fact that the other mercenaries and families are thriving. Well done!!! Loved it. When I started this series this book was not listed as coming soon so I wasn’t sure we’d get Rex’s story. I’m SO glad we did!

Great ending to this series!

I have been looking forward to this book since the preview at the end of ‘Zara’...and was not disappointed!! Lots of bad guys and drama but the Mountain Mercenaries came through in the end and Rex/Dave finally got his wife back! The extended epilogue put a neat bow on the series. Narrator’s work on all of the characters helped to make this a series ending to remember.

Perfect Endings

This is an emotional and tough ending to this exciting series. I loved Dave's dedication and Raven's determination. These two were amazing hero's who deserved their happy ever after.

Amazing end to this series!!

I absolutely loved this book! I was so happy to finally get Rex’s story after all this time! And it was totally worth the wait! Stella Bloom knocked it out of the park with her incredible narration!! I still can’t get over what great male voices she does and children! She’s very talented!
So many emotional moments in this book! Such a fantastic story! I was on the edge of my seat for a few scenes hoping everything would work out for the best!! I loved the future in increments at the end! It really ended up being the perfect ending for Raven and Rex!!

Excellent Series!!!

I love Susan Stoker's books but this series has to be my favorite. Strong characters with backstory and a little tough to listen to at times but overall action and storylines won't let you down. I recommend starting at book 1 since you learn a bit about many of the mountain mercenaries in each book but they can be listened to as stand alone.

I love this series!

Rex is the glue that pulled the Mountain Mercenaries together with a purpose. It only seemed right that he get his wife back. The troubles they discovered while trying to bring Rex's wife home seemed insurmountable but The Mountain Mercenaries gave Rex the front row seat in how they handle an op. I love the way Susan Stoker ends this book. This group of men and their families are so familiar that I feel like a beloved neighbor. Susan, the topics are hardcore and difficult to get through but Thank You for bringing light onto an evil world. You are the best!!!

OH MY GOD!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED THIS BOOK IS #1

This is the best book I ever read. I cried, laughed. I don’t know if Susan Stoker will be a able to write an other book as beautiful as this. Every time I read on of her book I’m speechless. Susan I don’t know how you come up with these ideas. I love all your books. I would definitely recommend this book. I will describe the book to you readers out there, but I can tell you will not be disappointed. If you were not a # team Stoker# y’all be definitely after reading or listening to this book. Susan Stoker you have such beautiful mind.
