This will take some getting used too, to be able to read. The topic of child sex slaves is very real. A mother who never gave up on her daughter, and young girl forced to grow up and who has lost all her innocence are the main characters, in this story. But, there is so much more. Vigilante? No a mother fighting for 10 years to find her. A child escaped from hell, starts Francine on a new path. A network of sick, disgusting men and women who deserve everything they get.I really hope here will be a follow up lot this story.
For a debut novel it was lacking. It had the potential to be great with the opening scenes. That letter could have taken this story into mind gripping areas. Instead, the delivery of details were overdone thus crowding the story with nonsense. Skimming the minute details helped reduce the time.
Francine’s character was an unstable character who ventured into investigative work after ten years of doing nothing. She was sloppy and an amateur in her methods.
Sectioned into three parts this author spent part one going over the little crumbs of hope Lena offered Francine. Part two provided details in regards to the living standards and life of the characters. Part three was ludicrous with Francine’s attempts to find her daughter.
Slow progressing story with an amateur investigator seeking clues. This story was choppy. It didn’t flow well for me.
The subject matter is alarming and dark, yet the characters didn’t behave or react in a way that truly illustrated the tragic circumstances. Instead the author focused on finding the abducted girl while leaving out the emotional turmoil. It was too cut and dry and very implausible. This is a serious topic that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The way these characters behaved so nonchalantly was frightening. They spoke about abuse and death like it was no big deal. These characters acquiesced to the lifestyle with no resistance. It was disturbing and unfathomable.
The entire clan of characters were imbeciles. This story lacked research. In order to tackle a subject matter this dark and traumatic an author should at least provide the necessary information to convince the reader that she knows what she’s writing about.
I had to laugh at the audacity of Francine’s character throwing threatening words around like they wielded power.
This was compared to a Karin Slaughter book. Absolutely not. This reads nothing like her books. The writing is nothing in comparison to Karin’s.
