Who is this story about? The neighbor next door? That girl on the street? The man sipping his coffee at the local cafe? The crimes portrayed in Little River happen everywhere and there is no victim safe from those who prey upon the innocent.
Little River is a riveting fictional account of two young girls drawn into a criminal network, operated by a man who treats human life as a commodity, something to be bought and sold. A tale of suspense that pulls the reader into the dark, seedy world of human trafficking. "The suspense in each chapter had me wanting more; I couldn't put the book down"; "The author has really captured the Island of Jamaica. This story kept me on the edge. The danger was so real and the emotions raw," say Amazon reader reviews.
Bad people do bad things to good people. It’s been that way since the beginning of time and that’s reality. Predator and prey. This story was influenced by two decades working inside the prison system, with murderers, gang members and thousands of men doing life on the installment plan. "We all tend to view the world around us through the filters we carry. One person may see glitter, while I see shards of broken glass," L’Etoile says.
Human trafficking facts:
"Gripping crime fiction blended with true crime."
- 27 million - Number of people in modern-day slavery across the world.
- 4,166 - Number of successful trafficking prosecutions in 2009.
- 800,000 – Number of people trafficked across international borders every year, as of 2007.
- Two million – Number of children exploited by the global commercial sex trade.
Before you stop to think that none of this involves you- four-fifths of victims (83%) in confirmed sex trafficking incidents were identified as U.S. citizens, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
Government organizations are underfunded to fight human trafficking and in many locations, the numbers of reported abductions is on the rise.
Human trafficking is an industry led by the darker side of crime. That's why SALT ebooks donates 10% of Little River ebook publisher profits to Not For Sale, an organization fighting human trafficking. All people deserve to be free.
