Overview

"A deeply moving book that explores one of the most important, ugliest social issues of our time." –Lydia Dean, author, philanthropist, Founding Director of GoPhilanthropic

Lien, an innocent village girl in Vietnam, is missing. Her father, Ngoc, is desperate and with help from a young Australian volunteer overcomes his years of reluctance and writes a letter to his father, a retired American army officer.

Ngoc's letter shocks Peter Trutch. Torn between his sense of honor toward this unknown son and his contentedly pleasant life in Seattle with his devoted wife Catherine, he hurls himself into his past and back to a country and memories that he had left behind forty years earlier.

Lien is sold to a brothel in Cambodia and, in his frantic search for her, Trutch confronts not only his past but a seedy, corrupt world where bad cops, pimps and the destitute, clash with courageous international prevention workers and a few honest officials.

Along with Trutch, the reader will be outraged at the worldwide plague of sex trafficking.
