~ Book 2 of The Paxton Brothers Saga ~
by Ron Parham
Sept. 11, 2001—his daughter is kidnapped
and he's two continents away.
On a routine trip to Europe, widowed businessman Ethan Paxton learns of the terrorist attacks
on the World Trade Center and Pentagon while landing in Amsterdam on September 11, 2001. Stuck
in the Netherlands while fear grips at America's throat and the world is in chaos, he finds
out his teenage daughter, Molly, has been abducted by terrorists in Mexico while she was on a
school mission trip. With America's airports closed for who knows how long, he is left with few options.
Will the three have what it takes to outwit and outfight the terrorist to save the girls?
In desperation, Ethan remembers an old Air Force buddy, Jake Delgado — an ex-cop who's now a broken
down, alcoholic private investigator. Tracking Jake to a sleazy bar on the outskirts of the Gas
Lamp District of San Diego, Ethan hires him to look for Molly, with Ethan's son alongside.
In a white-knuckle race against time, the frantic father finds his way to Mexico City, while his
distraught but determined son and Jake turn over the dark underside of Baja, California, searching
for the girl and her friends. Their journeys converge at the Tijuana border crossing on September
13, with the diabolical kidnapper and his prostitute companion in the crosshairs. But just knowing
the solution isn't the same as executing it.

Molly's Moon by Ron Parham which I won through Goodreads Giveaways is a fast-paced,
explosive thriller that begins after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and
Pentagon, September 11, 2001. As the world trembles under the chaos and shock of the attack,
Ethan Paxton who's stranded in the Netherlands finds out his daughter Molly and two of her
friends have been kidnapped while returning from a school mission trip to Tecate Mexico.
In a blockbuster novel that blends terrorism, sex trafficking, kidnapping and murder into a
plot that grips the reader from the first page to the last, there are underlying elements of
deliverance, faith, unconditional parental love and self-sacrifice. With clever dexterity Ron
Parham not only uses a sliver of moon to bring Molly courage and comfort during her ordeal and
a sense of rightness at the end, but he imaginatively links the past history of several key characters.
This well-written story is hauntingly realistic and would make a great movie. Molly's Moon is
not only entertaining but captures your interest and doesn't let go. I thoroughly enjoyed it
and would give it an even higher rating than a 5.0 if the scale allowed. Ron Parham is
definitely a writer to be watched.
~ Wendy on Goodreads
Great pace. Loved the characters. Had me hooked from page one. Couldn't put it down. What a thrill ride!
Can't wait for Parham's next book.
~ Joe Bajornas
Move over Grisham, Parham's on his way. Patterson's got his Alex Cross, Lee Child has his
Jack Reacher, and Ron Parham has Jake Delgado . . . really an interesting character.
~ Trent Fewkes
Ron Parham's first novel, Molly's Moon, is exciting and entertaining. With the terror of 9/11 as
its backdrop, the story of widowed American businessman Ethan Paxton's working trip to Europe
takes harrowing turn after turn when he learns his teenage daughter has been kidnapped by
Mexican sex-traffickers just outside Tijuana. Telling his story from multiple viewpoints,
Parham literally shoots for the moon, and he doesn't miss his mark.
~ JB Hogan, author of The Apostate and
Angels in the Ozarks.
