Publisher's Summary

In London, a newly-arrived Kurdish immigrant is brutally murdered by Turkish people-traffickers. The dead man’s wife, Irena, flees to East Anglia where she disappears into the murky world of illegal foreign workers. Reporter Joe Verdi goes undercover as a migrant worker to try to find Irena. But he’s not the only one looking for her – the Turks are also on her trail. Meanwhile, Joe’s colleague, Elli Mason, is following up the story of a typhoid outbreak. Three people have contracted the disease and the only link between them seems to be a supermarket chain. As the two reporters’ investigations come together, they discover there is a price to pay for cheap food – and sometimes that price is people’s lives.

Gripping Stuff

This is unputdownable fiction with an uncomfortable storyline.
The central character, a journalist, falls into the plot of a potential scoop. He puts his life on the line to get to the bottom of a series of callous executions and in doing so transforms the lives of those around him.
This novel exposes the heavy human and moral cost of cheap supermarket food but in an un preachy way. I was nailed to my metaphorical seat from start to finish. Beautifully written by Adam Paul whose characters breathe life into the tale and impeccably narrated as ever by Sean Barrett

Starts slow, but stick with it. The pace picks up after a few chapters, until you won't want to stop listening! Social issues are explored while the main character, a journalist, tracks down a witness/victim. I'll be looking for more works by Paul Adam. Sean Barrett has become one of my favorite narrators!
