The Disillusioned by D.J. Williams

A mother’s suicide threatens to destroy a family legacy. Her sons, Sam and Daniel, are forced to leave their comfortable worlds behind and search for a woman they believe can unlock the secrets that have remained hidden. They are propelled into separate journeys from Los Angeles to the heart of the Zambezi, where they are forced to confront a man known as Die Duiwel, the Devil. On their adventures they will find themselves in a place where death is one breath away, where thousands of children are disappearing into the darkness, and where the woman they are searching for is on the hunt for revenge. When they stand face-to-face with the forgotten slaves of Africa, they will fight to redeem what has been lost.

My review:
This was an easy book to get into. It had a lot of action, drama, and suspense that kept me turning (electronic) pages as fast as I could read it. At the base of the story is a family scandal and two sons trying to get to the bottom of it.

  A lot of the book happens in Africa, and in addition to giving a realistic picture of life there, the book also deals with child trafficking, and though its a sobering reminder that it is going on, it is a reminder that we need.

  I found the book a good read, and one that was easy to get into it. Suspense is my favorite genre' and it had enough of that to hold my interest, and kept me hooked to the end. This is an author to keep an eye on.
