Victims for Sale by Nish Amarnath
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sandy, a sheltered young Indian woman travels to London after a life- changing event. She's there to follow her educational dreams but instead discovers a shocking crime racket involving the disabled and the innocent. The family her parents chose to look after her while she is in London, the Sawant's at first seem wonderful but it isn't long before Sandy's inquisitive mind starts noticing odd occurrences that lead her to crimes of the most hideous nature. Sandy must dig deep for bravery and use every bit of intelligence she possesses to help these innocent victims!
The characters are well developed and interesting, Sandy is a perfectly flawed heroine; brave and intelligent yet recognizing her limitations. The secondary characters are equally well developed. There are some dark scenes in Victims for Sale, I think this is important, Ms. Amarnath does't lessen the severity of the sex trafficking crime.
Victims for Sale is a gritty dark story about human trafficking; it’s a thrilling mystery with a brave journalist at the heart of the story. Shocking and eye-opening, the author brings to light the travesties of these innocent victims.
