Overview

What at first appears to be an online hoax launches retired PI Alan Swansea into an investigation exposing a gang of sex traffickers. After receiving a mysterious email message from a woman making a desperate plea to save her younger sister, Swansea finds himself entrenched in the horrific world of human trafficking. Once it becomes clear that Polina and several other young Eastern European girls have been abducted and forced to take part in a deranged artist’s bizarre project, Swansea is engaged in a harrowing race to find the girls before they are thrust into a situation even more unthinkable than their present one.

Will Polina become yet another victim of modern day sex slavery like the others?

Throughout his investigation, Swansea becomes increasingly aware of the devastating effects sex trafficking has had on the lives of the victims and what little is being done by law enforcement to stop it. As the toll of victims rises, so does his resolve to bring the villains to justice. But as time runs out, Swansea discovers that the trail of his investigation may very
well have gone cold.
Will he be able to save Polina before it’s too late?

This book had my total attention- It did not have the fairytale ending most stories have.

This book was very good and is very eye opening on the sad truth about sex slaves. I could not put this book down I had to find out what was going to happen next!

Wasn't sure if I'd like this sort of book but sure am glad I read it! The plot is amazing and the main character's thoughts and actions keep you glued to the story as he tries to find the abducted girls. This thriller was really hard to put down and I thoroughly loved it!! Can't wait to read his others!

Interesting story, but badly executed. There was even a spot where the author called a character by a wrong name!!

I loved this mystery.

This book was good. It was a real eye-opener to a problem (human trafficking) that not many people are aware of. By only complaint is that a couple of times during the novel the characters' dialogue sounded like it was coming from a PSA over the evils of human trafficking. Other than that though, I throughly enjoyed the book. It has a lot of twists and played out realistically. I would recommend it for anyone that enjoys a good mystery and wants to know more about human trafficking.

Hard to believe this sort of thing goes on. This book is not just intriqueing & thrilling but very insightful. A good read for sure!

Good read. But you have to learn to skim over sections. I realize he's trying to teach you about the industry, and thats great. But it makes you feel like you are in a lecture class. I've read other authors that have done that in better ways. Otherwise its a great story.
