Publisher's Summary

Author of To the Lions, winner of the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger.

A Bangladeshi camp. A British ambassador. A Harley Street doctor.

Investigative journalist Casey Benedict is used to working on stories that will take her from the bottom to the top of society – stories with a huge human cost. And her latest case is no different.

A frantic message is found hidden in clothes manufactured for the British high street. They take the girls.... 

Casey and her team at the Post know they are on the brink of a major exposé, but identifying the factories in which the clothes have been made is one challenge; following the trail of those taken is another. 

Their attempts to find the girls will take Casey from her London newsroom across the world and into the very heart of families who will be destroyed if what she uncovers is ever revealed.

Slow build to a rollicking thriller

After a good amount of expositional build up, as the mystery is painstakingly investigated around the world, the story builds pace to a slightly ridiculous but very engaging peak.

The narrator is great for the most part, but stumbles with some of the foreign accents (the NZ one is distractingly bad).

In the spirit of reconciliation, Audible Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
