    "A great listen"

    I really enjoyed this book - gripping and very moving. Uncomfortable at times but how can a book about the sex trade be anything else... The only thing that let it down for me was the somewhat monotonous narration, but it's only a minor niggle. This book is well worth listening.

    Book addict in any form - good old paperback, audio, kindle, and always several on the go at any one time. Drives family mad!

    "Excellent listen"

    I really enjoyed this book; it was well-written and narrated (one or two annoying pronounciations, and French accents aren't her thing really, but I can live with that!) with a gripping storyline centered around child prostitution and human trafficking - it is horrifying what goes on 'underground' all over the world. Overall, a fascinating, absorbing, thrilling and ultimately heartwarming listen. I will definitely be looking out for more from this author.

    "Very good overall"

    It was a very interesting story and it had a good ending.
    It is sad to see that people would be so cruel to women and miss treat them like was in the book
