Gritty, powerful and fast-paced, NO ONE TO TRUST starts off with a bang and never lets up. Dark and emotional, this is one thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Sitting in a dirty Colombian jail cell, Elena Kyler knows that she faces torture, rape and certain death unless she can overpower her guards and escape.

Elana is desperate to save her five-year-old son, Barry, from his father's life of crime. To do so, Elena has contacted American DEA Agent Ben Forbes, and promised to deliver the drug kingpin Rico Chavez. Due to the delicacy of this mission, Ben turns to old friend and mercenary Sean Galen for help.

Sean reluctantly agrees, but is intrigued when he finally meets Elena, who manages to escape from prison and meet them at the rendezvous spot. In return, for Chavez, Elana demands asylum for herself and her son in the United States.

Chavez only recently discovered that Elena gave birth to a son, and he'll kill anyone he has to in order to get control of Barry, his only male heir. Can Elena and Sean thwart Chavez and keep Barry safe?
