"If you're tired of living an anemic life and you want to live courageously, get this book. Terrify No More is a suspenseful read that will introduce you to the new heroes of the faith--people who are willing to take risks to bring hope and freedom to those who need it most." -- Rick Warren, Author, The Purpose Driven Life Senior Pastor, Saddleback Church "...Producer Richard Greenberg showed me some truly alarming videotape he'd obtained from a human rights group called the International Justice Mission... That tape would trigger one of the most extensive international searches I'd ever been involved with as a Dateline Correspondent." --Chris Hansen, NBC News Correspondent "Now we have a gripping, close-up account of how IJM carries out its mission in Cambodia.  Gary Haugen's book should awaken many to what goes on in the 21st century slave trade." -- Ambassador John R. Miller, Director, Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons Out of shocking depravity emerges a story of hope. In a small village outside Phnom Penh, children as young as five are bought and sold as sex slaves. Day after day their abuse continues, and their hope slips away. In Terrify No More an international team of investigators goes undercover to infiltrate this ring of brothels and gather evidence needed to free these girls. Meanwhile, skilled legal minds race the clock, working at the highest levels of U.S. and foreign governments to bring the perpetrators to justice. Headed up by former U.N. war-crimes investigator, Gary Haugen, the team perseveres against impossible obstacles--police corruption, death threats, and mission-thwarting tip-offs--in a mission focused on bringing freedom to the victims.  … (mais)

This book will rip your heart out, stomp on it, and then slowly -- ever so slowly -- bring you back to life. Why? Because this book is the story of several operations run by the organization called International Justice Mission, an organization that is dedicated to rescuing young girls from sex slavery overseas.

These are true stories of men and women who risk their lives everyday to infiltrate brothels, slave camps, and so forth, posing as buyers and meeting the children (because they are, quite literally, children who are forced to become sex slaves) and then forming plans to get the children out and into aftercare where they can be healed. Physically and psychologically.

The central story of this book is an operation to rescue young girls and children from forced prostitution in Svay Pak, Cambodia (some as young as three years old... if that doesn't make your heart break, I don't know what will). These girls were either sold there by their families or tricked into coming by promises of restaurant jobs or maid positions... and when the driver takes them to a brothel instead, the girls are locked into tiny rooms and forced to perform sex acts in order to survive.

International Justice Mission rescued over a hundred little girls in this one operation. One operation. How many more are still there? How many more tiny children are forced into prostitution every day in Cambodia, other parts of Asia, around the world? This is an issue that we don't read about in the papers everyday, and we should be outraged. Imagine your daughter being promised a job in the next city, taking the train to get there, and instead when she arrives she's locked inside a house and forced to have sex with six strangers a day, every day, until she's discarded or dies?

This is a reality of our world. A repulsive, horrendous reality. I recommend that everyone reads this book, becomes aware of what's going on over there, and uses that sense of horror to take active steps to help fight this. IJM workers risk their lives every day to save these children. And at the risk of sounding like a commercial, that's something I want to help support. And though there are thousands upon thousands who are still stuck in slavery... even one little girl saved from a life like that makes it worthwhile. ( )

The topic of human slavery and transport is so important in our world today. I applaud this author for his head-on approach. But where did he get the editor for this book. It is shameful. There is no documentation whatsoever and the chapters are rambling and repetative. Chiefly, there need to be references attributed to the sources used. ( )
