“A heart-stopping adventure! I just couldn’t put this down till I finished reading it.” ~ Advanced Reader. After losing her parents to a fiery crash, Asha is left lost and alone. Despite her protests, she’s thrust into an extended family she never knew existed. This is her new home now, but the day a strange man in town visits, she realizes nothing is what it seems. With double-crosses at every turn, who can she trust? Her new family who says they’re on her side? The man who wants to make her a child bride? Or the sly immigration broker who promises her a new life in a country full of riches? She’ll need all her wits and guile to escape her fate in time. But Asha’s a ferocious fighter who’ll never back down. This is a gritty tale of crime and deceit that will take you on a mad dash from the heart of Tanzania to a seaside village in India, to the ritzy modern city of Toronto where evil can hide in the most unexpected of places.
