Hidden by London's wealth, energy and need for cheap labour, the city's immigrant population is powerless, despised and often illegal. So when a young woman's body is discovered on Hampstead Heath one cold morning, she could be anyone...Rich or poor, outsider or insider, five strangers are connected in undreamed-of ways as greed, courage, murder and kindness link their lives. Polly Noble, a human rights lawyer and single mother, knows more than most how easily people fall into the abyss of London's underworld.

    " This is a contemporary novel about immigrants in London and they tend to be illegal immigrants too. As is the case with most illegal immigrants they do not particularly want to be immigrants. They would have preferred to have remained where they were, but they immigrate to survive. Even so, though, the very young women from eastern Europe might have been better off if they had stayed in eastern Europe. That is, there is a focus on young teenagers who thought they were signing up for jobs as waitresses or even models and found themselves forced into prostitution. They are pretty much slaves. They do not even get to keep the money that is paid for their services. That goes to their ostensible employers, actually owners. I am not sure about the credibility of the character named Job. He is an immigrant from Zimbabwe and one day he decides to spend some of the money he makes as a minicab operator by buying the services of a brothel. Once he is there, though, he immediately assesses the situation and the plight of the teenage women who work there and he declines the services he has already paid for and, instead, he vows to a Ukrainian sex slave to help her. He eventually succeeds in helping her too. Somehow I just have difficulty in suspending my disbelief for that. The novel as a whole is entertaining enough, though, and if you keep in mind that it is based on the reality of the international sex trade it is even a bit poignant. "

    " An easy read with an accuracy of London life that many books fail to capture. "

    " I enjoyed this and thought it was pretty good while I was reading it but it's about a month now since I read it and I'm struggling to remember any of the characters. None of them made much of an impression. "

    " I enjoyed this book. It explores London's migrants , society and the difference between classes in London. There is mystery, good dialogue, interesting characters and a great setting. "
