The Stolen Ones Synopsis

Cass County, Minnesota: A sheriff's deputy steps out of a diner on a rainy summer evening and a few minutes later he's lying dead in the mud. When state investigator Kirk Stevens arrives on the scene, he discovers local authorities have taken into custody a single suspect: a hysterical young woman found sat beside the body, holding the deputy's own gun. She has no ID, speaks no English. A mystery woman. The puzzle only deepens from there, as Stevens and Carla Windermere, his partner in the new joint state and FBI violent crime task force, find themselves on the trail of a massive international kidnapping and prostitution operation. Before the two agents are done, they will have travelled over half the country, and come face-to-face not only with the most vicious man either of them has ever encountered, but two of the most courageous women. They are sisters, stolen ones. But just because you're a victim doesn't mean you have to stay one.

The Good Book Guide Review

On a rainy evening in Minnesota, a sheriff’s deputy is eating in a diner, but shortly afterwards is lying dead in the mud. When state investigator Kirk Stevens arrives, he finds that there is but a single suspect – a young woman, who speaks no English, in the grip of hysteria found holding the detective’s gun. But with the aid of Carla Windermere, his partner in a new joint state and FBI task force, he finds that the murder points to a sinister people trafficking ring. The Stolen Ones is typically gripping fare from the always-reliable Owen Laukkanen.
