Walters is one of my favorite authors. Each of her books is a standalone, and in this one, she does something quite different from her other mysteries. She slowly tells the story from the pov of a girl living as a slave to African immigrants in England. Abused and exploited, Muna finds her situation changes for the better when one of her abusers' sons vanishes. Presented as her abusers' daughter when the police come to investigate, so as to keep her status a secret from the authorities, Muna slowly comes to gain true power in the family. Walters, as usual, weaves a spellbinding story, one that is at its heart, a chilling one.
