it was amazing
Read in March, 2007

I've never been so disgusted and appalled by a book before...in a really good way! The charactes are strong and so sad that it's bordering on ridiculousness...
The Chief Inspector who grieves his living but no longer "living" wife and takes his only comfort in an old kasette player. The two young girls who are forced to live as prostitutes (trafficing) in an apartment locked from the outside, right next door to the regular people who either have no idea of their existance, don't care...or use their "services". The backstories are expertly woven into the story, that moves through time and countries... everything leading up to the dramatic culmination, where the different worlds collide...violently.
the only thing I don't like is the "twist" in the end...honestly I could see it coming a mile away, and would have been happier without it!
