This is the ultimate airport novel, “unputdownable”, as it says on the cover. Of course, Gerritsen has a message, too, which she wants to send out into the world, about all those poor Eastern European girls kept as sex slaves hidden somewhere in the States. And about their ruthless captors and customers. And about the corrupt Pentagon with all its subsidiaries,surprise, surprise.
If you are done with these preliminaries, itīs a thrilling story which you can read in one go, but you have to put up with feeling like a voyeur. If thatīs what you want, this thriller is just right for you.
