“This book is the account of many different lives and how they coincide at one crucial point. But don’t be fooled, this is no love story, there is smacking, backstabbing, organized crime, lies and money for sex! …” V. Pain
“… Ms Lawson does a great job of blending all the elements together to produce a very good crime/human interest story that will keep the read both enjoying and thinking. The characters are believable and kept me wanting to read just a bit more instead of doing minor things like sleeping. Well worth getting and reading.” Richard Hayes
“This story focuses on human trafficking / explotation in the US and Czechoslovakia. A 15 year old girls life is saved by an american woman, and this very act sparks of a chain of events which leads to the protagonists lives being changed forever.
I found the novel to be really well written and a gripping thriller. I would highly recommend it.” westernway
“Beautiful book. I loved the constant twists and turns in the book and the strong characters.” Niyati Mavinkurve
