Can we ever really be safe? And … is being safe always what we want?

“It would be easy for a memoir dealing with this subject to veer into an angry, ranting outburst, but Dekker’s restrained writing conveys the chaos with refined dignity. …. Dekker is refreshingly honest about his emotions and fears. He comes across as reasonable and in control, even in his darkest moments of doubt, which makes the story all the more poignant and inspiring. A candid, charismatic glimpse into the ups and downs of a blossoming adoptive father–son duo.” Kirkus Reviews

“This book is adventure, mystery and suspense at its best. I was pulled into the story immediately upon reading the first page, and my interest never lagged throughout the read. This is an amazing story, well thought out and full of great suspense. And do you know what scares me? It isn’t as farfetched as it may seem to be. I think we will have a sequel to this one in the near future. Great book, great read!” Midwest Book Review
