A Word from the Author
The thriller is my sixth book and there is an interesting story on how it was inspired. I was having coffee with a friend of mine who explained she had had that embarrassing experience of taking home someone else’s coat from a dinner-dance she had attended. She didn’t notice it for a few days but eventually the coats were exchanged. This got me thinking and I started to put together a scenario involving the owner, Keith Woodley, of a struggling coach business. I asked myself the question what would I do if I found a key to a left-luggage locker in the pocket. It may contain money which could save the business. The beauty is no-one would know. Of course the events didn’t go to plan and Keith finds himself in a life-threatening situation.
I did a great deal of research on people trafficking and the seedy world in which the girls are forced to work.
