A ship wreck–
Dozens of bodies washed ashore–
Clear evidence that evil has made port in London.
The horrific case piques the interest of P.I. Lorne Simpkins. It doesn’t take long before Lorne learns that young, helpless women are being caged and sold to the wealthy and salacious. Old wounds are wrenched open when she suspects a cover-up by the very authorities that should be keeping lawful order. Can she trust the self-serving journalist bent on making the human-trafficking ring his next big story?
When her daughter is involved in a life-threatening accident, it’s difficult for Lorne to keep her head in the game. But Lorne and her ex-MI6 husband, Tony, are determined to end the repulsive slave trade and bring the criminals to justice–even if it means Lorne ends up locked in a cage herself.
This is the sixth book in the Justice series and for me they just keep getting better and better – I loved the plot in this one, it is gritty hard hitting and I found the story completely addictive and it is also really relevant to recent news stories with the increase in the numbers of migrants trying to make their way to the UK.
Lorne is a fantastic character; the author has really developed her so she is a force to be reckoned with, I love her interaction with the other characters in the books and her family and friends support network is excellent. The author has created a set of genuine characters and I love seeing them work together in the stories.
This story is a tough one as the subjects are dark in nature but the author does a fantastic job with them and they are handled with the care and delicacy needed whilst still making sure the book is a complete page turner – and not everyone has that skill!
This book can be read as a standalone as the author does recap so you aren’t missing out on anything needed to help your enjoyment of the story, but they are best read as part of the series if you get an opportunity to do so!
Five stars from me, another fabulous addition to the Justice series – one of my favourite crime series available at the moment – this book is definitely a must read for any fans of police procedurals and crime fiction thrillers!!
