Can you escape your destiny?
John is a trauma doctor recovering at a glamorous Mediterranean resort after losing his wife in a terrible accident. Lost and alone, he wanders the streets, trying to escape his pain and drifting into alcoholism.
He ends up in a seedy strip joint, where he meets Jasna, a brilliant and beautiful hostess. Against their better judgement, they become infatuated and begin to fall in love.
When she is brutally killed, John is the only suspect. After he is mysteriously let go by the police, Charles, the hotel manager, reveals that Jasna’s death is far from an isolated incident, and he recently lost his granddaughter, Erin, in similar circumstances.
Seeking to clear John’s name and obtain justice from Jasna and Erin, they are pitched into a ruthless world of people-trafficking, prostitution, drugs and murder, where life is cheap and nothing is as it seems.
Will they gather the evidence in time to stop the killers, or be their next victims? Can they trust the police, or are they part of the corruption reaching into every part of life?
Escape is the debut novel by L. A. Davenport, plunging you into a darkly glamorous world where John has to overcome his grief to avenge Jasna, Erin and the victims of modern slavery.
"If you're after a bit of a thriller combined with romantic suspense, then Escape is definitely one to add to your (probably ever growing) TBR list...I didn't want to put it down!" Emily Quinn, A Quintillion Words
