For fans of Gillian Flynn, Laura Lippman, and Paula Hawkins comes Holly Seddon's arresting fiction debut: an engrossing thriller full of page-turning twists and turns, richly imagined characters, and gripping psychological suspense. Some secrets never die. They're just locked away. Alex Dale is lost. Destructive habits have cost her a marriage and a journalism career. All she has left is her routine: a morning run until her body aches, then a few hours of forgettable work before the past grabs hold and drags her down.

  • If you can get over annoying irritating inflections in speech of two readers it's worth listening to.

Trafficking is big business and those involved show no remorse, have no mercy, only a deadly intent to protect their income. Afina is a young Romanian girl with high expectations when she arrives in Brighton but she has been tricked and there is no job, only a life as a sex slave. Facing a desperate future, Afina tries to escape and a young female police officer, who comes to her aid, is stabbed. Powell's life has been torn apart for the second time and he is determined to find the man responsible for his daughter's death.

worst thing i have ever read. literally forced myself to finish,so that I could honestly review. insulting to women, men and children worldwide who are in serious trouble through being trafficked. all this crap about the girls enjoying it!!! was this written by a child who knows nothing about real life.? I so hope a large percent of profits go to help people in trouble.
