Shelves: thriller , adult Those of us not familiar with the sex trade, me being one of those, usually think of it as happening someplace else. The reality is that it happens all over the world, including right here in the United States. Children are sold for drugs, prostitution, kidnapped right off of the street. Before you go any further in this review you need to know that this is not a feel good topic. It is repulsive and hard to read. We start off the story with two innocent girls whose life is decimated due to a tsunami.

The American Lawyer has always held lofty ideals about the world and the way things should work, which is why she has poured so much of her strength into the work of an NGO that combats child sexual assault in Africa. Zoe cannot forget her new charge, a girl of mystery. Her assault could have been a random act of evil. It could also have been premeditated. Luckily for Zoe, she can count on the support of a police officer in Zambia by the names of Joseph Kabuta.
The pair will trek through the most dangerous circles of Lusaka to find justice. This book not only looks at the brutality of sexual assault amongst children but it also explores the culture of Zambia with regards to the AIDs epidemic and how it impacts politics and the economy. Zoe, the protagonist, is just trying to do what she thinks is right.
However, Addison goes the extra mile to develop his characters. The stereotypes are definitely present but they do not define this story which shines a light on politicians, prostitutes, and the police.
