This is the second book in the series and, like the first one, I really enjoyed it. Although, "enjoyed" is relative as it is a very graphic book about child sex trafficking and not for the faint of heart.
Paolo is back with his team, trying to figure out what the heck is going on, on the Bradchester streets. Children are turning up sexually abused and most of them have been murdered so he has to unravel the thread that goes back to Albania and see why this is so and who exactly locally is connected to this trafficking ring.
This is a really terrific story, graphic of course, and quite shocking because I know that this is what actually happens out there in some communities, but Paolo is a strong character and I liked the secondary characters as well. He struggles with a member of his team but his love life seems to be looking more hopeful so swings and roundabouts there.
Anyway, this was a great read and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
