The new mystery book keeps readers on their toes as Jonathan, the protagonist, finds himself the guardian of two young children who display obvious signs of child abuse. Fighting government bureaucracy to keep the children from potentially more harm, Jonathan is faced with his sister’s former drug dealer who wants to question the kids about missing drugs. A page-turner for its suspenseful prose, “Suffer the Children” by James R. Olson has recently been awarded the 2021 Global Book Award.

Olson receives the recent award with humility. He says that despite being a work of fiction, the book’s main themes of child abuse are based on real life. The author says that drug gang-related abuse is rampant, and many children – particularly of drug addicts themselves – are those that suffer the brunt of the harm.
Emerging data supports this. According to police authorities, many children of drug addicts often display signs of emotional and even sexual abuse. Parents who are addicted to substances are typically part of a drug gang and use their children as collateral for more substances. It is an endless cycle, authorities note, where addicts engage in risky behavior that produces children who are taught maladaptive strategies for coping with everyday problems.

Olson researched heavily into the topic, particularly on drug gang abuse and child custody laws, to write the novel. He says that he hopes to educate more people on a little-discussed pandemic in today’s society.
Suffer the Children can be purchased as a paperback, eBook, hardcover or audiobook.
One review of the book reads, “This book will absolutely keep you turning pages. I stayed up very late reading because I couldn’t put it down. The writing is riveting and you feel like you are there with the children and the man who wants to save them. Just when you think you have it figured out, another twist emerges that will have you on the edge of your seat. Don’t miss this one.”
