If anyone can move from one country to another without detection or the proper channels, what will keep criminals from doing just that and also using this means to move trafficked victims or illegal substances? A child was abducted, and they moved him out of the country and into another without being caught or needing any documents for him. The kidnappers requested that ten million dollars be paid into a bitcoin account for the safe release of the child, which the parents did even though the police said that they shouldn’t pay. Could the child be located and brought back safely? How do you even start tracking the activities to try and locate a child if there seems to be no trace at all?
Wytze Moolman and his dedicated 3G team happened to pick up some evidence that might help the authorities, but they need to convince them that it is worth it to work with the civilians. Obviously, not everyone likes the idea of giving any power to someone who isn’t part of the justice system, but Wytze and his team are talented and have surprisingly many tools at their disposal. They prove to be able to get more done without the red tape of the authorities and in a lawful manner. With the support of the authorities, they put multiple country teams together and worked on how to find the abductors and how they got the child out of the country. This may require doing some undercover work as well.
Let me just say, "WOW!" This book was absolutely amazing and kept me hooked from the start. I love Wytze and his team. They are more of a family than work associates, and each one of them has incredible talent. What I enjoyed most about this book was the dedication and details given in this investigation. How they went about working to locate the traffickers, track the money, make contact, and insert themselves undercover was all perfectly described, and you never had any doubt about the steps taken to make progress. I loved the storyline and seeing how everyone interacted with each other, but the dedication to the process was by far what stood out the most to me. This is the second book by Will Jäger I am reading, and I am not disappointed at all. I absolutely love his writing and descriptive skills.
I didn’t find any errors in this book, which proves that it has been excellently edited. I give Finding the Way by Will Jäger a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. I don’t want to leave any spoilers, so I will just say I was shocked by the ending of the book, although hints of what was going to happen were dropped in the final chapter. Wytze did a fantastic job putting his team together, seeing each one as an individual and making them feel like a family. He always makes sure that everyone is safe; that is his biggest focus when doing any interventions.
There was nothing I disliked about this book. It is impeccably written, the descriptions are fantastic, and it feels like you are right there with the team. I would recommend this book to people who love reading intriguing crime and mystery books and who are interested in seeing how the internal gears of crime work. I was astounded at how simple it was to get someone out of the country illegally with the right contacts and money! I just know that should anything ever happen to me or those I know, I can only hope to have someone like the 3G team on my side.
