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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Spellbinding"

    This book had me from the first paragraph. After a tsunami wipes out their home and family, two young girls are sucked into the underworld of human trafficking. The insights into how this world operates is gripping as are their stories. I chose this book because I am a fan of this narrator, and she did not disappoint, again speaking in Hindi, Russian, French, American, and Ukranian accents as she protrayed the different characters in this tale of darkness. I suspect the author may have been imagining himself as the hero of this tale, and I accept that. I think it was well-research, well-presented fiction, and I enjoyed it very much, one day walking an extra three miles while listening because I couldn't turn it off.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Ugh....Save your credit. Naive and juvenile."
    Would you try another book from Corban Addison and/or Soneela Nankani?

    No


    What could Corban Addison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Researched the topic much more.


    What didn’t you like about Soneela Nankani’s performance?

    Everything. The perky, high school student rendition was painful and grinding to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the worst listening experiences I have had.

    I love reading history, Isabel & Ferdinand, Columbus, or Mary Queen of Scots - fascinating, rich lives woven into a tension filled narrative

    Story
    "An amazing, relevant book."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, please read this. The story is well written, though covering a very dark subject. The book opens describing a upper class Indian family, expressing cultural nuances in a way that makes it easy to generalize the love and family relationships into any culture.
    The dark turn occurs when the children are taken hostage as sex slaves. It is informative, insightful, and, as I stated earlier, terribly relevant for today's audience. While it is hard for us to imagine how or why anyone would take advantage of a child this way, the book uncovers the motives that slowly blind men and women participating in this atrocity, often unaware and unremorseful.I loved the fascinating characters, the beautiful children, and the 'good' in the background made the story delightful, without becoming too painful.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a profoundly important book. I think it is a 'must read' to remain informed and aware in our culture.
