Harrowing, deeply moving, Bitter Sweet is the story of a young woman’s bid to rescue human trafficking victims
Nina’s double-life as a university student and an escort falls apart when she is drawn into a web of violence, human trafficking and police corruption.
When Nina rescues three girls from the clutches of a vicious trafficker a city-wide pursuit ensues, one in which Nina must outwit not only the police, but also the trafficker and a fate far worse than prosecution.
Can Nina avoid capture by the trafficker and a life of sexual slavery? Or will she in desperation contact the police? And can she avoid her worst nightmare – exposure as an escort?
In his heart-pounding début novel Mason Forbes takes the reader on a roller-coaster through the escort business, human trafficking and corruption from the city streets all the way up to the Crown Prosecution Service.
