Forgive Me by Daniel Palmer is a fast paced thriller dealing with the difficult subject of human trafficking.
This book is made up of two stories. The first part of the book focuses on the disappearance of Nadine , a 16 year old girl , caught in the horrific web of sex trafficking. Angie a PI driven by the disappearance of her college friend, specializes in finding runaways and is hired by Nadine’s mom . Nadine’s ordeal is described to us by her journal writings and is heartbreaking to read.
Meanwhile during her search for Nadine Angie’s mother passes away leaving a picture of a little girl with a code and the words “May God forgive me” written in the back. The second half of the book concentrates on Angie trying to solve this mystery and trying to find what happened to the little girl in the picture .
The first half of the book was very compelling and writing keeps you completely engrossed . The characters were very well developed but the second half of the book was disappointing, it felt very rushed and Angie’s character that was shown to be very strong , and practical comes across as being a spoilt brat . I would rate this book 3 ½ stars and will look forward to more by Daniel Palmer
Many thanks to the publisher & NetGalley for this advance reader copy in exchange for my honest and fair review.
