Meanwhile, on the other side of Glasgow, Nikki and Julie, two prostitutes, find themselves in trouble when a client dies during an assignment and it looks like one of them is to blame. Their problems become far worse though, when a briefcase they steal from the dead man turns out to contain some very valuable rough diamonds and several fake passports. It's clear it belonged to some serious criminals, and now they have much more to worry about than a dead body.
Investigating the Pakistani girl's death, Rosie has been talking to Laila, another young girl from the community, who has voiced her fears of being forced into marrying a much older man in Pakistan. When Laila disappears, Rosie is sure her fears have been realised. Then Nikki contacts her asking for help, and Rosie senses a parallel with her current case.
Sure enough, as Rosie flies to Pakistan to try and rescue Laila, it becomes clear that the 'accidental' death, Laila's disappearance and the briefcase are all linked - and once back in Glasgow, she, Julie and Nikki discover just how much danger they are in...
I recently finished book 5 so it was great going on another journey with Rosie so soon. She's one hell of a character and certainly manages to find trouble. I think she's a bit of a trouble magnet. Anything to get that juicy story, then Rosie will do it.
We kick off this story with a young Pakistani bride committing suicide and a death in a hotel that a prostitute needs a friends help to get away. This was early on in the book - how it all comes together then is superbly done. A truly nail-biting ride.
Anna Smith certainly knows how to write a damn good book and I'm hoping this series goes on for a long time yet.
For me personally I would say these books are best read in order. But that is just my personal opinion.
