Publisher's Summary

Corban Addison’s riveting suspense debut pulls back the veil on one of the most profound human rights issues of our day: human trafficking. After their coastal town in India is wiped out by a tsunami, two sisters are abducted and sold into the global underground sex trade. Meanwhile, half a world away, a D.C. attorney makes it his life’s work to end this dehumanizing practice.

Perhaps better read than listened to

This is a thriller -- or at least a suspense novel. The premise is interesting, current and important -- sex trafficking in young girls in India (and other countries). It is the kind of book I would often pick up at the airport before a trip. I could then read it quickly, propelled by the story, which would allow me to ignore the illogicality and poor writing that abound in this novel. But the narrator of this novel reads it ponderously, solemnly, forcing the listener to attend to all the little things that don't actually make sense and preventing the story from developing any energy. A third of the way through I abandoned the effort. Perhaps if the narrator had been different, I might have stayed with it, but the combination of a questionable story and a very poor narrator made the enterprise very unsatisfying.

Soneela takes her reading and characters seriously

As the only person in my book club who listens to audio, I am privileged to have the extra dimension of "READER" which I cannot share with them in my review. I can and often do, share a little of the audio to highlight a portion of the book I particularly enjoy. This reader, with the multitide of characters and accents, is able to portray these people and their accents authentically to help me distinguish who is who.

This book's character convergence does not feel contrived. The subject matter is dealt with three-dimensionally. Only the children are painted as angels on the planet...

Thumbs up.
