Private Investigators Griff Cole and Britt Callahan are approached by a family friend who asks that they try to locate his daughter, who has been missing for 3 years. The only lead he has is a place called Oracles of the Kingdom. Oracles of the Kingdom is touted as a refuge, especially for women. They work the farm in return for a roof over their head, a safety net. But as the PI's investigation deepen, they suspect it is much more than that. And when Britt goes undercover to look for her friend's daughter, she finds more than gardens that need tending, and more than dirty dishes in the communal kitchen. And there's no safety for Britt ...none at all. WARNING: The subjects broached in this book include prostitution, human trafficking, sexual assault, drugs, alcohol, brutality, physical violence. So much of it is graphically described. If any of these subjects make you uncomfortable, then you should not choose this one as reading material. It is well-written, as far as bringing to light the subject of human trafficking and how women are sucked into these places such as the fictional Oracles of the Kingdom. They promise so much, but what they demand in return is much, much worse. Coming from a law enforcement family, I didn't find the characters entirely credible, but they kept me interested in where the story was going.
