I was not sure about reading about young girls getting caught up in the sex trade. but this book - which I was given to review- was very good. it revolving around a girl who escaped and made a life for herself. She is found and for revenge they frame her for the murder of her husband and steal her little girl.

Lucky for her she has a lot a brave and willing friends ready to help her. the FBI sends a man after her and the story goes.

I will not tell much more of the story-- it is well worth a read.

This is a smart, rip-roaring romp through deception, intrigue and redemption. But while it grabs your attention, it clearly brings to focus the issue that seemingly gets swept under the rug---the sex trade. In short, women that are duped and used and dumped. This is a well written and timely book, with great character development that will glue you to the pages. Thomas---I for one want more!

I really didn't know much about the sex trade before I read this. It's hard to believe what some can do to another human being. This was very well-written and was an eye-opener. Great read - very detailed story line.

I quickly became engrossed in this story about Kristyna Sondheim and her struggle to find her daughter. Kristyna herself was abducted into sex-trade as a young girl and managed to break free, only to end up fighting again the very people who she escaped from in the beginning. Not only is she up against a monster who is a high up in a sex trade organization but she also has the US government and other agencies after her for being a fugitive from a crime she didn't commit.

The author does a great job building the characters and giving them depth. He also does a superb job of portraying exactly what a horrific and vile "business" the sex-trade is and how far it outstretches, but does so in a way that allows the reader to continue with the story and not be too sickened to read further.

Overall I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good thriller with strong characters.

I was given this book to review and I will admit, I was a little apprehensive about the topic. It turned out to be an excellent book, done tastefully and very well-written. It was also an eye-opener regarding sex trafficking, a shadowy, horrific world I knew little about before reading this. I didn't do any fact checking but it seemed well researched and plausible. I would recommend this book to any of my friends!

Great story. Fast paced without seeming hectic. Great characters that had enough normal qualities about them to seem real rather than the characters in some books that are so over the top that they aren't quite believable. Krystina Sondheim (main character) conveys the emotions of a mother that has been through a sordid past, cleaned herself up, witnessed the murder of her husband and been separated from her only child. It was especially refreshing for her to continue to demonstrate herself as a strong personality while the reader gets a glimpse into her worries, doubts, and shortcomings. The same can be said for many of the characters in The Trade. The story line kept moving along at a quick pace while flushing out details and environments to draw the reader into the world of the human sex slave trade. A great book that I would recommend to anyone.
