“If you write anything about this, you will not leave Greece alive.”
Trafficking in women is big business in Greece. Thousands of intended victims arrive in the country each year, unaware the respectable positions they’ve come to fill don’t exist. What awaits them instead is a brutal initiation into a dark world from which few escape and where mafia-style bosses ply their trade without let or hindrance.
So when Agnes Jones comes along, cycling round Greece with her tent, her primus and her high-flown ideals, it doesn’t take long before she’s made herself a powerful enemy. The drama unfolds in a deceptively paradisiacal setting on the Peloponnesian peninsular. But Agnes Jones isn’t quite what she seems either: she’s not just a travelling journalist who has stumbled by accident into something dark and dirty.
