PORT OF ORIGIN, Agents of Mercy Book #2 by Lisa Harris and Lynne Gentry, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"Pirates? Seriously? . . . And he'd been worried about exposing his daughter to typhoid."

Dr. Josiah Allen travels to Central Africa with his six year old daughter in order to spend a couple of weeks assisting a medical team onboard the Liberty, a renowned medical ship docked off the port city of Doula, Cameroon. The incessant shroud of grief hanging over Josiah's head following the loss of his wife was reaching the point of emotional debilitation, so his sister's insistence that he and Emma join her in Africa seemed like a fine idea at the time. . . . . . . .
Mackenzie Scott is certain that extracting hostages off of an hijacked oil tanker is not going to be easy. Being the member of a highly specialized extraction squad carried an automatic degree of danger, but it was widely known that African militant groups were becoming increasingly hostile as they routinely watched their country's natural resources being decimated by foreign industry while the indigenous people died from disease and starvation. What were the chances that a tragic injury would bring the gorgeous warrior in contact with a grieving plastic surgeon . . . . .

. . . . . .in the middle of a terrifying threat of pandemic . . . . . while two determined fathers waged a fierce battle to save the lives of their children. "Desperate people always complicated a mission, because they were willing to take risks that the average person would never take."

"Sometimes bad things happen, but that doesn't change who God is."

What an excellent book by two authors whose voices harmonized so perfectly that it was impossible to tell one from the other. (Read 2 times!)

BackCover Blurb:
When virus-infected pirates hijack a humanitarian medical ship, they trigger the threat of global pandemic.

Hijacking oil tankers brings cash to Dabir Omar’s family, but it doesn’t buy the medical care needed to stop a deadly sickness attacking his people. When Dabir’s son becomes ill, the desperate pirate sets sail for the Liberty, an international humanitarian medial ship ported on the Cameroon coast.

Shortly after Dr. Josiah Allen arrives on the Liberty with his precocious six-year-old daughter, he is sent ashore to investigate a mysterious illness at the ship’s post-op clinic. While he’s gone, Ebola-infected pirates hijack the medical ship where Josiah left his daughter.

When pirate negotiations fail, ex-military Mackenzie Scott’s extraction team comes in for the rescue. But when the medical ship becomes the pirates’ key hostage, both fathers are forced to go to war to save their children. If Mac can’t convince them to work together, the winner of this conflict will be the deadly virus intent on destroying the world.
