Ahalya Ghai and her younger sister Sita are as close as sisters can be. But when a tsunami rips through their village on India's Coromandel coast, their home is swept away, and the sisters are the sole survivors of their family. Destitute, their only hope is to find refuge at a convent many miles away. A driver agrees to take them. But the moment they get into that car their fate is sealed. The two sisters - confused, alone, totally reliant on each other - are sold.

On the other side of the world, Washington lawyer Thomas Clarke is struggling to cope after the death of his baby daughter and the collapse of his marriage. He takes a sabbatical from his high-pressure job and accepts a position with the Bombay branch of an international anti-trafficking group.

Thomas is now on a desperate path to try and save not only himself and his marriage, but also the lives of the two sisters.

Riveting Read


I really enjoyed reading this book and found the characters likeable despite the harrowing topic of people-smuggling. Corban Addison seems to have a good grip of developing characters with enough human foibles to be believable, making the book difficult to put down. I enjoyed jet-setting around the globe with each page, and the vivid scenes from Paris to Goa that the author describes.

A very moving story.


Corban Addison is a great writer and I will now read all his books from now on. It's good to find another author like this.
