Format: Hardcover
Aaron Cohen's ability to walk into the most savage and brutally dark places, a virtual hell for little boys and girls: sexual slavery and human trafficking of children as young as seven years old. He frees them: In Cambodia, Mexico, Armenia, Burma, Israel, Iraq, Sudan, and yes here in the US as well. Often these are powerful mafia, drug cartels running intricate lucrative operations- clearly Aaron puts his life in real danger doing what he refers to as
`night-frighting'. This is when he goes to a brothel to collect evidence. Crucial to his mission is to maintain the believability of his virtual `role', Aaron's drug and party-boy past pays off big time for these tiny victims securing the photographic evidence and names mandated for the raids that attempt to restore human dignity to these forgotten souls. The tiny faces play in his mind while alone in his hotel...the agony he endures is palpable. A fascinating yet sobering study on a topic that seems as invisible as the victims who are SOLD.
A must read!!

I was previously aware of Sexual Slavery but Aaron Cohen's book Slave Hunter opened my eyes even more. I commend Aaron for what he has done and enlightening people through this book. I now have a much keener understanding on this matter beginning with Slave Hunter and learning about an International president set by the Special Court for Sierra Leone on Sexual Slavery. If a local jurisdiction does not or can not prosecute for Sexual Slavery the International Criminal Court can step in. Presidents of countries permitting, or being part to, Sexual Slavery can be prosecuted as a criminal, e.g. Charles Taylor, former president of Lyberia presently on trial and facing so much time in prison the Special Court probably won't even be in business any more. It will have completed its mission. Aaron Cohen's work has brought many peoples attention to the grievous crime of sexual slavery. Now even International Courts can prosecute perpetrators. I strongly recommend that those who engage in sexual slavery be aware of the penalty they can face. Thank you Aaron for for your direct work in this matter and your book. I recommend people read it even if they don't think sexual slavery is going on in this present day. I guarantee it's occurring right under their nose. One last thing. I know for a fact Aaron Cohen is still involved with his work to bring attention to and stop sexual slavery. "Don't stop", Aaron. -bp

This book is a real eye-opener to how prevalent human trafficking is in this modern day world where most American citizens believe that slavery ended with the close of the civil war.
The deeper into the book one reads, the more riveting it becomes.
I admire Cohen's writing style. Too many non-fiction books detailing one's adventures try to throw in bits and pieces of fabricated events or conversation to spice it up, but Cohen seems to stick to the nuts and bolts of his adventures.
However, I do have to question his tales about the 911 calls mentioned in the latter chapters. If he really believes that these calls just came out of nowhere, then he was probably under the influence of some illegal substance at the time.

Very good book with detailed accounts of not only what his life was like that led into Aaron Cohen's abolitionist fight, but detailed about his encounters with "night frights" and more. I thought it was really wonderful to get a new perspective insight like that, even though I've read dozens of anti-slavery books on human trafficking. This is One of the best!

This is a moving journey of one man's quest to end slavery one soul at a time. The most heart wrenching pieces are the stories about the young girls forced into a lifetime of sexual servitude. The book will make you sick with the immorality of man and move you to want to make a difference. Historical references help give context to the stories told.
And to "coolerhead" who says "I smell a rat"...you should read a book before you write a review and make sure you are informed before you make such harsh judgments of someone who is trying to make and has made a difference in countless lives. I would ask you what you have done to make a difference.

Great book! The author sets off to solve a problem and he exploits an industry. Fascinating to hear all of the danger he went through to save these girls and bring an issue to light. He is still active and I now follow him on social media. Super impressed. Rock star saving the world. Excellent read!

This book was written very well, and with so much honesty and heart. It may be a non-fiction book, but it captures you in the first few pages and you want more by the time the book is done. I have already passed it along to friends, and they were very impressed also.
