A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN
Enslaved as a prostitute, one of too many.
AN UNRELENTING JOURNALIST
Who's fallen for the subject of his story.
Gangsters, con-men, corrupt cops, pimps, arms dealers, out only for themselves.
AN ACT OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE
That most men don't dare contemplate.
A BOOMING CITY, ON THE EDGE.
A city built on faith, where the only way out is to tell the truth.
David Bryson, a freelance journalist based in the Middle Eastern boom town of Dubai, falls for the subject of one of his stories: a beautiful woman enslaved as a prostitute. When he tries to secure her freedom he uncovers a network of violent human traffickers, money launderers and arms dealers with ties to the ruling elite. They want him dead and he wants a good story, but in a corrupt city built on spin and denial, he will be lucky to escape with his life.
