One of the reasons I chose the subject I did for ‘Eyes Wide Open’ was to give a voice to victims of sexual abuse, albeit in a fictional way. Just received this lovely review on Goodreads… ‘Sexual victims are most always victimized many times more, threats of violence towards themselves and their families, plus the shame of what had happened to them, creates a wall of silence
Art always reflects culture and sex trafficking is the reflection of the horror that is happening all over the world today. Eyes Wide Open speaks for these victims with a strong a voice that leaves readers chilled and aware that this can happen anywhere.
Matt is a detective Investigator with his own troubled past. When an underage girl Kitty is killed with ties to a past case on sex traffic ring that never came to justice, Matt is determined to find justice for Kitty. Fighting his own demons, he uncovers that a young girl and another potential victim may have been the last to see her alive. Matt is lead to Rachael a young woman that was an advocate for sexual crime victims and for the Kitty as well. Rachael is hiding in her own silence-will Kitty’s justice be her justice?
Very intense read with a real understanding how victims become victims in the sex trafficking industry. Was at the edge of my seat on this one.’
