Agents of Mercy #2
GENRE: Inspirational Medical Thriller
PUBLISHER: Harris-Gentry Suspense
RELEASE DATE: April 30, 2020
PAGES: 332

Hijacking oil tankers brings cash to Dabir Omar’s family, but it doesn’t buy the medical care needed to stop a deadly sickness attacking his people. When Dabir’s son becomes ill, the desperate pirate sets sail for the Liberty, an international humanitarian medial ship ported on the Cameroon coast.

Shortly after Dr. Josiah Allen arrives on the Liberty with his precocious six-year-old daughter, he is sent ashore to investigate a mysterious illness at the ship’s post-op clinic. While he’s gone, pirates hijack the medical ship where Josiah left his daughter.

When pirate negotiations fail, ex-military Mackenzie Scott’s extraction team comes in for the rescue. But when the pirates refuse to surrender, both fathers are forced to go to war to save their children.

How far would you go to save your child?

I asked the authors…

What do you most want your readers to take away from port of origin?

Desperation is something many of us have felt. Desperation may have even driven us to do things we never thought we could. Sometimes those choices pushed us toward new horizons and taking risks that turned out for our good. Sometimes those choices to take matters into our own hands led us to even more dire consequences and great regret.

When we started writing the story of two desperate fathers at odds, we realized how hard it is to see yourself in someone else’s shoes.

We believe many problems of this world could be solved by taking the time to understand each other. To put our fears and prejudices aside long enough to ask what’s it like for you? Because you really don’t know yourself until you’ve dared to walk alongside someone in trouble.

    I am so curious to know how it all turns out. It sounds like it will be suspenseful both action wise and emotionally.

  2. Perrianne Askew

    I don’t think I’ve read very many medical mysteries and this one does sound very enticing.

  3. Alison Boss
