Is Anybody's Daughter Ever Safe?

Based on the real-life horrors faced by thousands of girls, award-winning author Pamela Samuels Young takes readers deep inside the disturbing world of child sex trafficking in a fast-paced thriller that educates as much as it entertains.

Thirteen-year-old Brianna Walker is ecstatic. She's about to sneak off to meet her first real boyfriend—a boyfriend she met on Facebook. But Brianna is in for a horrifying surprise because her boyfriend doesn't exist. Instead, Brianna unwittingly becomes the captive of a ring of drug dealers- turned-human traffickers who prey on lonely girls from dysfunctional homes. But they’ve made a big mistake in targeting Brianna because she doesn’t meet either of those criteria.

Brianna’s Uncle Dre, a man with his own criminal past, is determined to find the niece who is more like a daughter to him. Rather than sit back and rely on police to bring Brianna home, Dre scours the dark corners of Los Angeles looking for her. He is stunned to learn that the trafficking of children isn’t just happening in other countries. It’s occurring at epidemic levels right in his own backyard.

Dre is not alone in his desperate search. Loretha Johnson knows this world well. A social worker who previously lived “the life,” Loretha now dedicates her time to saving as many young girls as she can find. She turns out to be an invaluable resource for Dre, who ultimately gets a lead on The Shepherd, a mastermind in the trafficking world whose every move is fueled by ego and greed. Dre vows to bring his reign of terror to an end.

While Brianna makes a futile effort to thwart her captors, Dre is getting closer and closer to finding her. The woman he loves, attorney Angela Evans, knows the dangers faced by sexually exploited children because she represents them in juvenile court. Angela lends her moral support and, eventually, an important clue to Brianna’s whereabouts.

As he races against the clock, Dre ultimately comes up with a daring plan—one that puts many lives in danger, including his own. But will he find Brianna before it's too late?

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbingly it’s a story based on fact 27 Sept. 2014
By Cathy
Format:Kindle Edition
After finding out that Dre Thomas is an ex drug dealer who spent time in prison in Buying Time, Angela Evans broke off their relationship. Dre’s feeling for Angela are still strong and now he has a second chance he’s determined to make it work. Angela, who was an Assistant US Attorney, now represents children and teens, who have been sexually exploited, in juvenile court.

Dre’s niece, Brianna, is targeted by a sex trafficking ring, masterminded by the Shepherd, and abducted on her way to meet a fictitious boyfriend she met on Facebook. Charting Brianna’s appallingly horrific experiences, this story explores in detail the shocking way the human traffickers abuse and manipulate vulnerable young girls.

'It still bothered Brianna – but only a little – that Jaden had refused to hook up with her on Skype or FaceTime, or even talk to her on the phone. Jaden had explained that he wanted to hear her voice and see her face for the first time in person. When she thought about it, that was kind of romantic.'

Dre has given Brianna an iPhone for her birthday which enabled her to secretly open the Facebook account her mother had forbidden. Now Dre is suffering agonies for, as he saw it, putting Brianna in harm’s way. We follow his desperate search for Brianna as, unable to rely on the police, Dre calls in any favours he can and recruits people from his own criminal past. He will do whatever it takes to get Brianna back safely and bring those responsible to justice.

This is a very challenging story to listen to, on an emotional level. The horror, brutality and degradation young girls are subjected to is tragic and beyond callous.

5.0 out of 5 stars gut wrenching 8 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fantastically written, gripping, intense and heartbreaking. It isn't hard to relate to this book by things you may have seen for yourself, or experienced. We all know that sex exploitation, slavery and human trafficking are unfortunately alive and well and happening all around us every day! It's hard to imagine what one human being will do to another and although this book is a work of fiction it is eye opening and I will be asking more people to read this as if more people are aware of the issues happening around them then there will be more people to act on the issues!
Thankyou so much for this fabulous book!

The story line is a difficult one to be able to say that it is enjoyable, it is in fact distressing to read and some of the additional facts are too truly awful to contemplate. Reading this book has certainly raised my awareness of the crimes being committed, all over the world, by people trafficking. The useless Nations should be doing more to eradicate this, instead of pontificating in their New York ivory tower.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read Novel 31 Oct. 2014
By David
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fast moving stirringly emotional book. I downloaded it because it was free, I will happily pay for the next book by this author.
Anybody's daughter is a gripping tale, it has a disturbingly true to life account of what is happening. The hero, Dre, is a bit larger than life, but believable.
This is a must read novel, a social statement, and a plea for understanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY POWERFUL BOOK 7 Nov. 2014
By Shirley
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing powerful story about children as young as 9 being trafficked for men's sexual pleasure. It is abhorrent to me that a child (and thats what they are children) can be coursed into this life, beaten and raped continually by filthy men. It has certainly opened my eyes. These children are so traumatized they cannot stand men anywhere near them

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 25 Oct. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure what I expected, but this book is hard hitting and the only bum note is the happy ending. Too many children never get found. We all need to be aware of what is happening and stop behaving as though these children are making 'lifestyle'choices

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very difficult subject matter to read about, particularly knowing that for some this is fact not fiction. Very well written. Kept me ' on edge' throughout. Read this and then check that you know EVERYONE on your daughters Facebook friends list.
