Book Description

George D. Shuman returns! In his eagerly anticipated new thriller, blind psychic Sherry Moore combs the Caribbean to find the murderous kingpin of a human trafficking network and finds that she must confront a man who shares her talent for seeing the final moments of a dead body's life.


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Shuman's provocative third thriller to feature blind psychic Sherry Moore (after Last Breath) puts a troubling, unsavory issue front and center. When Sherry uses her unusual gift—the ability to see the final seconds of a dead person's life—to help save some stranded mountain climbers in Alaska's Denali National Park, she gets an unexpected and horrific glimpse of the sexual slave trade. After learning more about the tortured women she sees in her vision, Sherry doesn't hesitate to make a dangerous trip into the wilds of Haiti in search of justice. Sherry's unique talent opens doors for her, but it's her determination to live a full, active, useful life and her grit when things get rough that makes her such an appealing hero. Shuman puts a human face on the victims of human trafficking while painting a shameful picture of the failure of the world's nations to address the problem. (Sept.)

4.0 out of 5 stars "lost girl" lost its way but still wound up at home November 18, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the 3rd book of the Sherry Moore series and the 3rd one I have read. I keep writing reviews that point out the book's deficiencies but rate the books pretty high. Hmmm.... This book had the same problems as the first 18 Seconds and the second Last Breath, which includes a plethora of characters, underdeveloped characters, and too little page time for the protagagonist, Sherry Moore.

On top of those deficiencies are a couple of plot twists, that while exciting are totally unbelievable. The one of these that I will mention is having Moore, our blind protaganist who has never climbed before in her life, fly from Philadelpia to Alaska in very few hours to go mountain climbing on Denali (aka Mt. McKinley), one of the world's most challenging mountains to climb because of weather and altitude, with a team of Super Navy SEALS. It would have worked just as well, and probably better, to pick a much smaller mountain that was a more believable climb (still highly unlikely but a little more believable).

But for all its failings, I enjoyed this book. I thought it was the best of the series to date. Shuman writes about the human trafficking and sex slave trade like he really knows what he's talking about.
WARNING: There are extended sections in this book that concern rape, torture and are VERY graphic.

Shuman did flesh out some his characters in this book including Sherry Moore (hey, possible love interest this time) and Admiral Brigham. I thought his characters of Aleksandra, Jill Bishop, Carol Bishop, Rolly King George, and Tam-Tam Boy were very well drawn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow -- this one was really good! October 10, 2008
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really liked this one. I had been so disappointed by Last Breath - so I was afraid to even try it. The story was really interesting. The background info about Haiti and the corruption and crime there was fascinating. The plot regarding the kidnapped girls for the sex trade was very well written. Funny though, Sherry was really not the focus of the book and that was fine with me. That worked though for the story. I was intrigued reading what happened to Jill, a rich girl kidnapped from the Caribbean and locked in the dungeon of a castle in Haiti and about Alexksandra and her toughness to survive. The description of torture and inhumanity was sickening. All in all, this was a great story. I really had no idea of the scope of the torture and the plight of the victimized women. I'm all but certain that this exists today and would wish to know more about what I could do. I highly recommend the book!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Blindly struggling through a difficult topic October 12, 2010
Format:Hardcover
'Lost Girls' is a hard look at human trafficking, sex tourism, voodoo, and slavery. What it is not is what it says on the cover - it's not a Sherry Moore novel.

It's a serious subject that George Shuman tackles in 'Lost Girls,' and a subject worth looking at. It's modern-day slavery at its absolute worst and something that is largely ignored today. It is a sad and shameful truth of the modern world, that the buying and selling of women as property goes on unpunished. It's a tale worth telling well, in a way that makes people pay attention, and nothing does that better that a viewpoint we can understand and sympathize with. In Sherry Moore, we should have had one ready made.

Sherry Moore - the blind woman who can touch the dead and see the final 18 seconds of their lives, the featured character we've come to know through two good stories so far. We've come to know her and understand her unique situation and to feel for her. I've come to expect good stories from her.

In 'Lost Girls,' however, Sherry is barely in the first 100 pages of story (almost half the book), and still isn't the focus in the latter half. I would have liked to see a lot more of her in this story. Told through her eyes, this could have been even more harrowing, frightening, and shocking. Instead, what we have is a tale diluted by multiple viewpoints and narrative voices, one which struggles to find its center the whole way through, while Sherry Moore herself is reduced to little more than a literary device used to advance the plot.

There was potential here - there was a dramatic story to be told (perhaps one that needed to be told), and a character that could have been a great vehicle for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars griping and haunting tale of HumanTrafficking September 4, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
This book grabs you from the first. Having not read any of the other Sherry Moore books I was still very intrigued.
Sherry reads a mans emotions and finds out some disturbing new. The man, "saw" things that deeply bothered Sherry and she finds herself along a path to destuction.
Jill is a young lady who, like most young ladies, is cought up in everyday things and surface things. She goes to the market and is abducted and sent to a compound for young women being sold for their bodies at the highest prices. Jill befriends a woman anmed Alexzandra and this take is about Jill's struggles, Alexandras bravery and Sherry being drawn into the vortex of evil these men have planned for these girls.
Very gripping and amazing tale, you cannot help but to put Natalie Holloway's face on Jill's as she struggles to to stay alive and her mother searches for her.
