I received a copy of this book from Bloomsbury Publishing -Raven Books via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
A young investigative journalist follows a lead that suggests some unscrupulous rich people are hunting the forgotten humans – refugees, for kicks. The trail leads Casey and her fellow journalist Miranda to North Africa, to discover the truth.
This is a high octane, political thriller full of action and violence. The investigative journalist aspect of the story is realistic. The events Casey uncovers are disturbing.
The writing style is factual. The first part of the book is hard to read, but the second half is more dynamic and faster paced.
This story authentically explores the human cost of this tragedy and poses the journalist with believable moral dilemmas.
