Characters were unlikable. Never found one I could route for. Lots of unanswered plot lines.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
For sure!! This was an extremely dark and disturbing read; the topic of sexual slavery is never an easy one, but a very real issue in today's world and I applaud the author for writing about it in such a frank way.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I loved Saskia Frost!! Lena Cona was an amazing woman too!! These women could not have come from more different background but neither of the would back down when push cam to shove!!
What does Alison Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her voice absolutely captivated me!! I loved the story and I think 50% of that was her!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Sexual slavery is real and anyone can be Taken
Any additional comments?
There are multiple storylines to follow here; we have two female lead characters who form a bond over their being forced into lifestyles where they are controlled, plus a graveyard worker who seems unrelated in the beginning. I love how the author kept us guessing until the precise moment she decided to reveal how all the characters were tied together; behind the scenes she has woven them piece by piece in a way the reader is unaware of until looking back once the book is finished. The story completely messed with my mind and kept me guessing until the very end.
I felt like I was getting whiplash turning back and forth so quickly. The story is interesting, but there is so much action that there really isn't a good place to set the book aside; you might as well just carve out a really long night to read the entire book in one sitting and plan to call in sick to work. If you are into this type of thriller and can stomach the intense, dark stuff, pick this one up asap! I can't recommend it highly enough and I'm glad to have found another "must read" author to add to my list!
First of all i must say how much i enjoyed listening to this book who was narrated by Alison Campbell she played the characters brilliantly and all the accents where spot on a very easy listen. (i'm really fussy and sometime find it hard to enjoy the book if the narrator isn't good)
The book itself was brilliant too, its a hard hitting storey with lots of different characters each one with there part to play, all the characters came together in a fantastic storey with lots of twist and turns along the way, this is a brilliant read it literately had me hooked from start finish only bad thing is that i have finished it already and now have to wait for the next one from this author.

This book is incredible. From beginning to end, every sentence will have you in its vice like grip.
No holds barred storytelling at its best, certainly not for the faint hearted but definitely for lovers of Martina Cole.
Thoroughly and highly recommended with clever narration by Alison Campbell, whose talent makes each loveable and despicable character come to life.
Need I say more?
