What People are Saying
For those who like murder mystery thrillers, this is the book for you. The main character is a prosecuting attorney who has a mission of trying to help young girls and women to get out of abusive relationships and to leave prostitution.
Debra Mares is unafraid to use deliberately stereotyped characters.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book!!!! It was well written and kept me impatient in reading the next page. I found the character Gaby Ruiz to be a "real person" in the way the author presented her. Gaby could of been been my next door neighbor for all I knew!!! She came across spunky, real, and tirelessly dedicated to her goal to help the defenseless and scared. Kudos to BOTH Ms. Mares and "Gaby" for their fearlessness in following through with compassion, street smarts & "justice for all"!!!!!
