Carly Smith came by her trust issues honestly. A victim of sex trafficking, she's been at the mercy of merciless men, ignored by law enforcement officers who should have helped her, and seemingly rejected by her family. She can't even trust herself to do the right thing. Though she escaped her captors and is working hard on building a new life, the past continues to haunt her when she discovers that the man she couldn't bring herself to report to police for fear of reliving her captivity is still out there, luring vulnerable girls under the guise of being a modeling agent.
When her own niece is kidnapped, Carly must overcome her fears and come forward with the information she has before it's too late. When that proves to be not enough, she'll have to go after the perpetrators herself.
Award-winning author Patricia Bradley keeps the suspense taut and the stakes high in this fast-paced story that will have readers turning pages long into the night.
My thoughts: This book was hard to put down! Well written and fast paced, I loved the story of Carly Smith as she sought to leave the fear from her past behind so she could help others not have to go down the same road. This book has some triggers, since Carly escapes sex trafficking at the beginning of the book, and the whole book has that shadow. That said, it is handled well and is a great reminder for young girls not to be so trusting. There is a lot of action and suspense with this story! This is an excellent mystery to pick up and enjoy!
