Anna's first book was brilliant and has set her series off on a high. Book two was also another great read but the first book held the edge for me. Book 3 I can assure her fans, is just as good as her other two books so I don't think people will be disappointed! Rosie is now back on home turf following her last trip over to Kosovo. Her personal life is progressing (I better not say too much for fear of spoilers), and once again she gets the opportunity to get stuck in with a new story. This time around it starts with the problems in Glasgow which arise from locals becoming resentful of the refugees that seemingly get hand outs from the Government for nothing. As tensions rise in the community Rosie see's a potential story and as usual starts to nose around. This results in her getting dragged into the strange disappearances of these refuges.
As usual Rosie finds herself befriending people that are going to drag her into their dark worlds and I found myself particularly gripped by this books storyline. It's a subject that has come up many times in the press over the years and there is somewhat of a divide over public opinion.Read more ›
This book is not as good as the previous novel but it's close. It sags a little bit in the middle but overall, Anna Smith keeps up a good pace with her lead character.
People trafficking is a popular subject these days, a good few authors have recently brought this into their stories, indeed, Gilmour's previous outing covered this, too. However, whole body trafficking is a step up and Glasgow seems to have more than its fair share.
Yet again, Gilmour funds herself on the wrong end of personal attention from the Glasgow thugs with the unfortunate addition of even heavier thugs from Bosnia putting their finishing touches to rather too many missing immigrants.
My feeling is that these stories have become just a little repetetive. I lost count of the number of times Rosie is asked, 'How she is?', how many times her editor expresses incredulity when told about Rosie's escapades, how Adrian is the great 'fixer' just when you need him. But these are gripes after the event. I read this book and enjoyed it. If anything, the ending was a bit of a let down, as though the required number of words had been written, so time to tidy up the issues.
Certaibnly, we get more character development. Rosie's love life seems to be straightening out though where that will go will no doubt be revealed in book 4. I look forward to reading it eventually.
She sets the scene on yet another harrowing theme which balloons into something far worse. I would prefer to think that body part trafficking does not really happen but am I just being naive? The book is pacey from beginning to end and Rosie is unrelenting ,as always, to put herself in ridiculously dangerous situations in pursuance of the truth. Brilliant stuff!
However, I feel that Rosie needs to be warned that if she continues to treat TJ as though he does not exist sometimes then she is going to lose him. A classic case of 'you don't know what you've got til it's gone'. So buck up Rosie, show the love!
This is a MUST read for you, and I am looking forward to 'Betrayed'

This book started off really well, then - to me - it seemed to meander and drag a little. It was a good read, but had it been abridged (fifty less pages), It would not have lost... Read morePublished 10 months ago by cristofori
