"Gritty, uncomfortable read"
12 June 2018
It's very difficult to find fault with the presentation of this book, the cover is eye-catching, the writing style is well above average and perfectly matched to the different characters, wherever they are in the world. However, this is not a light read. This is a book where the 'like', don't like' rating is inadequate.
I can't say I enjoyed this gritty account of the evils of the sexual exploitation of young children. Those involved in the trade in any way deserve to die, but can moral outrage ever justify a vigilante carrying out the executions that the police and the legal system should be handling? If the criminal is eliminated, and all trace of his crimes hidden, how does that contribute to the huge social change of attitude that's required to see the trade end for good? My other concern is that some people would read this type of book for gratification. As I say, it was an uncomfortable read.
