Review: It was an interesting book, based on a true story about the MC. I have not heard of her prior to reading the book, and the way it was written using her letters and other documents from the people involved in her trial made for a fast and interesting read.

Review: This story was very unexpected for me, with the turn of events that occurred. The MC, Judith, was the definition of a Femme Fatale, and I surprisingly enjoyed it. The fact that a thriller involved art and culture really impressed me. I cannot wait to continue the series.

Review: It was a very well written story about sex trafficking in Nepal and India. The way it was written poem-like still gave me a sense of being their next to the protagonist and watching her struggles.

Book Read: Inside the Hotel Rwanda: The Surprising True Story ... and Why It Matters Today

Rating: 4 star
Review: It was a steady story and very enlightening to the genocide in Rwanda. It also showed how a movie can distort the appearance of a person and how they use that for their own personal gain. I am glad I chose this book to read.
