#BlogTour Danger by Robin Nye


It's my turn on the Blogtour Danger by Robin Dye.

About the Author

Robin Nye has had a life-long interest in writing. 'Danger' is his first full-length novel. Leading a busy life in the commercial and voluntary sectors, he has plotted numerous stories over the years when travelling the world but has never had the time to write in earnest until now. He's already well advanced with his follow-up Hunter and Selitto novel.

About the book

'Danger' is a riveting, fast-paced thriller that ranges from the leafy countryside of Kent to the windswept shores of the Black Sea and to the dramatic coastline of Cornwall. At its heart, 'Danger' is a compelling story depicting the hopelessness, desolation and suffering of those caught up in people-trafficking across Europe. A guest goes missing from a five-star country hotel, sparking an investigation which leads DI Sarah Hunter and DS Ted Selitto of Kent Police to the discovery that young girls are being trafficked from Eastern Europe to the UK for exploitation in the sex industry. 

As the body count rises, Hunter and Selitto find themselves caught up in a ferocious war between gangs of ruthless traffickers, each vying for supremacy in this sordid world. But will Hunter and Selitto be able to identify the mastermind who controls the UK operation before he can be silenced forever?


Review

Hunter and Selitto are called to the scene of a disappearance. It looks as if something akin to a crime has happened. The hotel guest has disappeared and the room suggests something nefarious happened to him. This is the beginning of a thread leading towards terrible crimes - young girls exploited, humiliated and broken all in the name of money.                                                                         

The story is set in one of the most prevalent modern crime ring scenarios of our times. The human trafficking rings, who cater to all by kidnapping and forcing predominantly young women to work as sex slaves. Young girls who are ripped from their homes and deposited in a foreign country with no recourse to escape the clutches of the deviants.

The numbers of just how many victims remain a calculated guess, but one thing is sure they are invisible victims from countries who neither have the resources or the inclination to put a stop to the trafficking.

The author gives a good insight into how vast and widespread a problem this actually is, how organised and ruthless these gangs and organisations are. Goodness knows how many victims become dark statistics and Jane Does.

I thought the book was a little on the long side, it could have been more condensed, but hey-ho.  Hopefully we will see more of this sleuthing duo in the future.
