This was an exciting and disturbing novel, one that paired a major current social issue, human trafficing, with a compelling story filled with fleshed out characters. I hope this author is discovered by readers looking for a complex legal thriller and it heads up the best seller list. This is the kind of debut novel I'm always looking for. It has passion, is well researched, moves at a good pace, and presents characters who you care about. The main character, lawyer Thomas, is battling his own demons as he jumps in and tries to help the two orphaned and abused Indian sisters re-unite. I love how the author weaves the threads of the two stories, and how Thomas is motivated by what is happening around him and grows as the novel progresses. Some of the events are extremely hard to read, but there is a balance of hope and pain.

I look forward to more novels by this author.
