Saving Sophie by Ronald H. Balson (2015)
Ronald Balson has written a complex, captivating story with great characterizations. Saving Sophie is a suspense/thriller infused with rich historical details and insights into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It takes you on a journey from Chicago to Hawaii to Israel, as Jack Sommers goes to any lengths to rescue his daughter. He is joined by an investigative team whose mission is not only to rescue Sophie, but to thwart a major terrorist attack in Hebron. There are many twists and turns to keep you interested. I found it not only entertaining, but also informative. At times it reminded me of I Am Pilgrim (another book I really enjoyed).
