Gately brings her real life as a humanitarian aid worker and nurse into the realm of fiction in the guise of United Nations nurse Abby Monroe. Abby is on her way to her first assignment, in Peshawar, Pakistan, but has a layover in Geneva first. There she witnesses a woman falling to her death, but the body is gone when the police arrive. Abby is haunted by the woman’s death, especially by the distinctive bejeweled bracelet on the dead woman’s arm. She arrives in Peshawar to track statistics on a UN vaccination program but quickly meets a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist who is supposedly there to interview an American nurse braving the politically unstable Pakistan. In reality, he is there to write an exposé about human trafficking. It’s a horrific story but one that would have been better served by Gately showing more and telling less. There is a tepid romance between the reporter and the nurse and just enough suspense to keep the pages turning, but it is the realities of life in Pakistan that give the novel its primary appeal. --Stacy Alesi
"Roberta Gately uses her experiences working with refugees and traveling in the Middle East to take readers on a thrilling, highly visual trip into the world of human trafficking in Pakistan. The Bracelet is a pleasure from page one, and hard to put down until the very last page." -- Jennifer Haupt, I'll Stand by You: One Woman's Mission to Heal the Children of the World

The cover of "The Bracelet" was absolutely perfect and set the tone for the mystery which I enjoyed reading the most. Was her housemate her new friend or foe? We never really know for sure. The biggest suprise was the true role of the driver. I didn't have a clue. Some was predictable but most kept you wondering and made you want to read more about all the characters. How did they fare? We found the mystery of the bracelet but not of some of the characters.
Would love to see some sort of a sequel.
