The choice to read GOD IN A BROTHEL has to be a personal one. Daniel Walker (pseudonym) at times is graphic and conjures up vivid pictures of the victims in the human trafficking world. I found it incomprehensible that victims of such young ages are the preferred choice in this horrendous business. The author is honest in how his constant exposure to this world of sex, stimulation, and sensuality, wore down his astuteness and unfortunately lured him to cross the line into the world he was trying so hard to expose. This book does speak of his numerous successes in exposing sex trafficking rings around the world at the price of his own personal life. At times, I did get tired of reading the numerous “I’s” in this book and felt an underlying arrogance in the writers retelling of his journey and his successes, almost as if he was trying to justify his personal failures against the overall good that his missions accomplished. I had to continue to tell myself this was one person telling of his personal accounts and how even in his writings Walker explained on many occasions that he was a lone light in an otherwise dark world. So of course, his recounting of his missions would be self based. Other than that, this book revealed how truly deep the depravity of man is, and how some people are so lured by self gratification they see their victims as nothing more than an end to their own self-interested needs. From the pimps who buy and sell these women and young girls, to the authorities and government officials who turn a blind eye to the evil that is happening within their own regions, the love of sex, money, and power is never more vividly portrayed than when the catalyst that elevates these men and women to power is done on the backs of the ones who are the young, weak, and forgotten. A candid expose with no happily-ever-after.
