My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The book is as the title suggests about the trade of human trafficking. Powell, the main character and former MI5 operative, finds himself thrust into a ring of trafficking while investigating the murder of his daughter, a cop in Brighton. Powell travels from Brighton to Bucharest cleverly infiltrating the organization that employs his daughter’s murderer. He struggles to reign in his rage and not exact the revenge he desperately wants, but befriend the animals that murdered his daughter and bring them to justice, which is what he believes his daughter would have wanted.
The reader is drawn into the story from the very beginning. Mr. Ward spins a good yarn, keeping the reader involved rooting for the good guys while dreading the worst. I look forward to reading more of Powell’s adventures.
