On the night they arrange to meet, Cate is mown down by a car that kills her husband instantly. As paramedics fight to save her life they uncover the first in a series of haunting and elaborate deceptions. These are the trigger for a dangerous quest that will take Alisha from the East End of London to Amsterdam's red-light district and into a murky underworld of sex trafficking, slavery and exploitation that stretches from the desolate hillsides of Afghanistan to the comfortable middle-class suburbs of London.
