Each chapter is a different story of modern slavery, mostly in the civilized world, concentrating on Britain and the US. However, many chapters are only half a dozen pages long; the reader is left with many questions. Some of these cases are extremely interesting and should be books in their own rights.

This book is decent. Every chapter is a different story of girls that are held captive around the world. Each chapter is fairly short (10 - 20 pages) and only gives a quick version and not many details. This book is alright but almost reads like a book report.

There's an astonishing lack of details - some chapters even omit names, dates and places, that is to say: how do you know it really happened, if you can't validate it?
I strongly recommend reading the more specific books on the subject (available from Amazon, of course) - for instance: House of Evil, Fred and Rose, Invisible Darkness, Dismembered and Deviant. All these were highly disturbing, though.

Slaves girls takes you into a world, you'd like to believe doesn't exsist.
The book goes onto detail various crimes, of human enslavement. I would've liked a more In-depth look into Slavery and sex Crimes, however this book contains only short chapters.
This book held my interest completely, and left my wanting more.
I Like the writing style, but it could've been perfected.
I read alot of true crime books, I'd suggest this to anyone interested in True Crime.
Thank You for Reading my book Review and Happy Reading!!!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the most descriptively gruesome human trafficking book I have read outside of the child soldier ones (and I've read 80 books on the subject).

What I liked about this book was that it was raw and based on modern-day slavery set in the 1980s-1990s (the book was written in 1996). I don't really hear of many accounts from that time, though I know it existed, but it shows how much more often people got away with things and how much more the cost of slavery is (the prices are lower since the internet boomed which is scarier).

These are stories about girls forced into sexual slavery or slave labor (such as live-in maids), either kidnapped, drugged, coerced, you name it.

Chapter 3 was more of crime investigation story but it is about a man who kept slave girls in his basement, but it doesn't paint enough of a story of how sex slaves today work (but goodness this was the most gruesome chapter and hardest to read out of the entire book). The whole book graphically tells of how these women were abused.

Not all of these stories have happy endings, so be prepared. Definitely one that I enjoyed, as hard as it was to read.
