In Haiti, Carline Lissade turns to prostitution in order to surivive. But her first night out, she quickly learns how one poor decision can have devastating consequences. Her first — and only — customer offers her fifty dollars to be his interpretor. Desperate for money, Carline agrees — her second mistake that night. It’s too late to back out by the time she realizes she’s in the midst of a drug deal. This one night hurls her into a life-and-death struggle where all of the players are desperate to win. Her strongest ally is a U.S. Senator, but is he any match for such powerful enemies?
This book was very suspenseful and entertaining. I liked Carline, and I was rooting for her to survive. Unfortunately, she couldn’t run from her problem. It followed her wherever she went. It proved to be a good lesson for the reader. One bad decision can ruin your life. We need to pray for wisdom and God’s guidance when we have an important decision to make.
The characterizations were wonderful. I liked quite a few of the characters. And the bad guys were truly awful. They would stop at nothing to achieve their goals.
I did have some problems with this book. In an attempt at realism, the author uses a few bad words and crass statements. He also uses the wrong name on more than one occasion. It bothered me that everyone seemed to side with Alyce regarding her infidelity. And the viewpoint character sometimes knew things that he couldn’t possibly know, like someone’s name or where he lived.
These things aside, it was a really good book. I would definitely recommend it.
BookCrash has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
