You are about to be taken to Afghanistan and discover the tragic story of a young boy sold into sexual slavery to a Taliban warlord and trained as a dancing boy.
The army had no use for Tom Gillet after he'd lost a foot in Afghanistan. If it hadn't been for a young Afghan kid called Shafiq, he would have lost his life. With his life turned upside down, and suffering from PTSD, Gillet's family life crumbles. Then, from an ex- army pal he discovers that Shafiq has been sold into sexual slavery to a Taliban warlord. Seeking one final fling Gillet grabs the opportunity to start his own personal war, and returns to Afghanistan in the hope of finding the boy. With his PTSD worsening, and betrayed by those closest to him, he begins to uncover the horrors of Bacha Bazi. Then a dramatic change of events take place when he receives news his son has been kidnapped by Al Qaeda and taken to the UK. While searching for his son he reveals the extent of sexual slavery present in his country and countless others.

Greed is good, if you live long enough to enjoy the money.

Sangre (Daughters Of The Rose Moon)

“Valeria, he told me he loves me” She gave a proud smile in acknowledging that miracle “We made love” Blissfully recalling those moments of magic “I left him sleeping in bed and went into the bathroom” Visibly showing Valeria the bane of despair, she pulled up her pink cotton tee shirt, “Then this, Valeria”.

Having to see Sangre’s flesh for what it is, Valeria placed hand over mouth, “Does he know?”

Sangre hated to admit the truth to anyone, but had to tell everything to Valeria, “When the sun rises” Inhaling the air, as if courage were in the wind, “He will”.

Valeria knew Sangre better than anyone. She’d seen the tears and fears of this young woman in all its’ vividness. Event of this night was the last thing she ever wanted Sangre to have to deal with, “My heart is with you, dearest one” Placing Sangre’s smooth hand in her wrinkled one, “Get some sleep and things will be as they should be in the morning”.

“I just wanted….” Sangre looked downward in a pause and said a trio of words she never thought would come from her lips, “…To taste life”.

“And, you have, sweet Sangre” Valeria stood up and lifted Sangre upward also. She softly spoke to her, “Rest your eyes and your mind”.

“You are right, Valeria. Everything will be as it should” Sangre hugged her and rested head on Valeria’s shoulder, “I love you”.

“I love you, Sangre” Returning that hug and letting her go gently, Valeria traced both thumbs along those tear stained cheeks.

Sangre nodded and retreated upstairs to her bedroom for rest and a smidgen of solace.

Wishing to wash away the fiasco under a shower head, Sangre turned the silver knob to release a stream of warm water.

Closing her eyes as that liquid splashed against skin, she thought about Brian. His kisses, kindness and smile gave Sangre pause in her decision to leave him sleeping.

Wondering whether things could ever be normal between her and any man, suddenly was answered in a most unusual way.

Placing her hands forward against the white shower tiles, she began to second guess herself.

Holding head down and slowly opening eyes, Sangre’s choice was crystallized, as a stream of crimson color swirled down the shower drain…end of excerpt

**************

Brian fell in love with a dream.

Yet, this dream was a nightmare, for this woman was not what she seemed.

Her name was “Sangre”.
