Having previously read "Bad Analysis" by Colin Knight I was very excited when I was asked to read his new book "Escape from Prague". This had a very enticing blurb which had me intrigued from the start.
There's no preamble here just straight into a gritty, hard hitting often brutal novel with a setting that almost had me feeling I was there in the Czech square with the undesirables. The story starts around Anna trying to flee Prague and her violent pimp Edvard to reunite with her sister Krystyna

I won this book in a goodreads drawing.

Harrowing book about a woman who falls victim to the sex trade in Prague. She tries to escape from a brutal pimp. Meanwhile, her younger sister comes to Prague and falls into his clutches.

Very eye opening.

‘Escape From Prague‘ is fast paced and as such offers a quick, thrilling reading experience with a raw use of crime and prostitution elements. With great execution, being equal parts riveting, chilling and harrowing, it certainly kept my adrenaline levels high throughout and in the end… I think the outcome of the story was the best. It wasn’t disillusioned when it came to certain relationships and at the same time it left just enough up in the air to leave me pondering… For full disclosure,the A ...more

This was a decent story, in spite of the mistakes I found. I would read another story by Colin Knight.

Escape from Prague, absolutely loved the book could not put it down, hence I finished it in a week, reading it every chance I could spare. I found it a bit far fetched but at the same time so many parts of reality of what goes on in this world, very good balance. Of course I am no book critique but if a book grabs me in the 1st 5 pages it is a go. Reading the book I felt like I was there with the characters watching from a far.

I thought the ending was excellent although very unexpected, there i

I received a free copy of this book through the Goodreads Giveaways programme and hadn't heard of the author before. The novel is a fast-paced thriller focusing on two sisters and their fight to leave the sex trade behind them. It's written for maximum tension and will be a big hit with fans of the thriller genre as the action goes on right to the end of the book. I did feel at times, however, that some of the detail of both the sexual acts and violence was a little strong for me, and that I wou ...more

This was my first time reading Colin Knight book & I will definitely be reading another one of his. Escape From Prague was fast paced & edgy. His characters were well developed. I was disgusted by the Manchester men, cheered for the sisters & was very satisfied with the ending. Knight brought out the horror, the trauma, experienced by people caught up in the sex trade. While I want all to obey the law, I understand why so many people in this situation feel there is no safety for them within the ...more

An enjoyable fast paced thriller. A young woman escapes from the vicious pimp that was forcing her to work the mean streets of Prague. She follows her sister (who also escaped from the same pimp) to England. The sister unfortunately is trapped working as a prostitute for four lowlives. Will the sisters escape the life of prostitution? Or will the pimp from Prague track them down to seek revenge?

I received this in a Goodreads giveaway, and I read it fairly quickly -- it's fast paced and full of action. The style was great -- I prefer third person narration so I enjoyed that. However, the content is not my cup of tea. I did find the ending satisfying, as well. A solid read.

From Prague to Manchester

Pretty good. It’s about escaping the seedy of a bad city, escaping the gangsters that run the place, and trying to start fresh.

Although this book is fiction, Escape from Prague by Colin Knight, sheds light on just how depraved and demonic the sex-trade really is. A sometimes hard to read, brutal story of human trafficking.

I thought this book was going to be way more graphic and uncomfortable. I was pleasantly surprised! Colin Knight did a great job of detailing just enough without going overboard to get the story across without making it too gory. I was on the edge of my seat for most of the story. I was hoping it would end a little differently, but I'm not heartbroken. Overall, LOVED IT!
Laura Larson
Pretty decent thriller. I didn't feel connected to the characters much and I kinda wanted to smack some sense into Anna more than once. Huge trigger warnings for human trafficking, violence, rape, and racism. The plot was pretty basic but well written with some interesting details added to keep of from being too bland.
