Proud to be one of the Blog Tour stops For book 2 in this series.
A failed rockstar, a dirty secret.
Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling is determined to shut down the syndicate flooding Bradchester’s streets with young prostitutes.
When a child is murdered, Paolo becomes aware of a sinister network of abusers spread across Europe, and spanning all levels of society.
But Joey, the shadowy leader of the gang, always seems to be one step ahead in the chase.
Has Paolo come up against a criminal he cannot defeat?
In this book second in the series we are back with D. I. Paulo Sterling and his team.
Take a deep breath as both this book and the previous are quite graphic but your drawn so quickly in to the story that you have a real need to find out why these things are happening and who is behind it. This book is about Child trafficking. It's a horrible subject but is written very cleverly and with real sensitivity.
Children are turning up sexually abused and many of them have been murdered so we are drawn in to a shocking crime/mystery that travels all the way to Albania.
This is a really terrific story, but as stated before very graphic and very shocking to actually see how children are treated in some areas of the world and to at home.
I really enjoyed getting more in depth with Stirling and his family. Sterling is such a strong character and I really like his team so i felt very invested in the story as a whole and there behaviours.
This is a very good stand alone book, however it did further build on the relationships that were introduced to in book 1 and overall as i have enjoyed both so much i would recommend starting with the first!
Terrible crimes, horrifyingly showing the true side of human nature for some and twists and turns a plenty. I for one can not wait for what i hope will be the next in this series! This book tour has turned me in to a true fan and i feel very lucky to be a part of promoting this amazing series!
