Product Description

Product Description

While the story of Scar Tissue is purely fictional, the issues of human trafficking and/or caste inequality raised are all too real.

In a single phone call, Rachel's entire life unravels. Transported to a dingy basement in Kolkata to identify the body of her murdered husband she has no explanation for his presence in India. As she searches for answers about who the man she married really was she finds his death surrounded by allegations of drug smuggling, child trafficking and murder. Unsure of what is true and who she can trust, Rachel has no idea of the danger her husband's hidden life has put her in.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fantastic read. Really enjoyed the way this book is written as it carries you through the high emotions and struggles of a wife coming to terms with the husband she thought she knew. The subject of child trafficking in India is at the fore of this gripping novel and the scenes set by the Author has you living the nightmare along with the characters. Looking forward to reading more from this Author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - great read 26 May 2013
By hilly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great read, couldn't put it down. Loved the alternate threads. Author has a good understanding of the underlying issues, excellent way to bring this topic into a more main stream enviroment, reads as a detective style novel and as an exploration of social issues both within Indian society and our own western world. Excellent

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book! 10 Nov 2013
By Lizzy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Am an avid thriller reader and this is one of the best I've read in a long time. Couldn't put it down! Read it in one sitting - a superb page turner. No gratuitous sex or violence just a great plot and believable characters. The issues tackled are very real and I felt enlightened and prompted to look into the issues further. Can't wait to read the next one. Loved it!

A fabulous read delving into the depths of child trafficking - and what's more, he supports several charities in India trying to put an end to this horrid occurrence. Wonderful, thought-provoking and well worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars a story to stir your heart. 14 Jan 2014

It's like a case study going inside human trafficking. Not just a good read, but a glimpse into the dispairing hopelessness that must surely face victims and their families.

Giving this book a rating is difficult. In terms of quality it's probably 3 star; Amazon scale says 4 star is 'I like it' (which I do); for highlighting a gross injustice and major human rights abuse which needs exposing it would be a 5 star.

Let's start with the good things. It uses a great plot device; it gives some real insights into life in India and the shocking reality of Dalit trafficking; there are some really tense moments, and you want to find out what happens. It's a thriller. There is a romantic element. It lifts the lid on the human trafficking and modern slavery of India's Dalits (Untouchables). Read it!

The downsides are that using first person narratives makes it difficult to give some of the background in a realistic way - the description of the caste system while accurate is not delivered in a convincing way. Similarly, while you get a real feel for India, there is the occasional aspect which makes you wonder: is that really the way it would be done or spoken about? There's much that is good in the characterisation, and you do feel for the dilemmas that the characters face, and you can sympathise with the emotions they are going through, but every now and again you wonder, would they really do that? (And then there's my beef about poor editing and proof-reading with a few too many errors slipping through the net.)

Having said that, would I recommend it? It's well worth a read, it will keep you engaged. So yes.
Is it a literary masterpiece? No. But it is a very promising start for David Skivington, hinting at potential.
