**A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the paperback book go to the fight against human trafficking.**

And, he desperately needs the funds to pay for his mother’s cancer treatment. This mission will take him to Manilla where he will find out there is much more going on than a simple abduction.
Millers’ first novel in the Jake Noble Series, Noble Man, introduces us to horrors of the sex slave industry. It is an enlightening story though written in a simplistic manner. For an adult level book as far as content and subject matter it is written on about a 9th-grade level.
The characters are all full of flaws to the point of levity. I can see using humor to take the edge off a tense situation but it was used over and over rather inappropriately. It often took away from the seriousness of the story.
The novel was well edited and the main characters were thoroughly fleshed out. I expected more than a dime-store detective-type book.
3 out of 5 stars.
