Texas Ranger Cody Jackson transfers with his teenage son Kyle from Houston to the border town of Durango. He teams up with Durango Police detective Liliana Rodriguez when a serial killer hits the town targeting suspected illegal aliens. Cody and Liliana soon develop strong feelings for each other as this murder investigation may be linked to a smuggling ring, all the while finding themselves in the role of protector in their personal lives: Cody, with his son, who's upset by the death of his mother, as well as Cody's concern that Kyle's stepfather (who has white supremacist connections) may be a bad influence. And Liliana, herself a victim of child abuse, is concerned about her sister Elena and the influence her husband Samuel exerts over her and their children, both verbal and physical.

Just like the previous MOTR book, Saving Hope, there's a great combination of suspense, some romance, and a dash of inspiration as the characters all deal in their own ways with the effects of prejudice and bullying. With many of the characters (Cody especially) faith in God plays a central part of their lives. While this is book 2 of the series, these are really stand-alone books with different characters and settings, therefore not necessary to read in any sort of order. I found this one hard to put down.
