John, a doctor recovering at a glamorous Mediterranean resort after losing his wife, falls for Jasna, a brilliant and beautiful hostess.
When she is brutally killed, he is pitched into a ruthless world of people-trafficking, prostitution, drugs and murder, where life is cheap and nothing is what it seems.
To clear his name and find her killers, he teams up with Charles, the hotel manager seeking justice for Erin, his murdered granddaughter.
Will they gather the evidence in time to stop the killers or be their next victims? Can they trust the police, or are they part of the corruption reaching into every part of life?
Escape is the debut novel by L. A. Davenport, plunging you into a darkly glamorous world where John has to overcome his grief to get justice for Jasna, Erin and the victims of modern slavery.
"If you're after a bit of a thriller combined with romantic suspense, then Escape is definitely one to add to your (probably ever growing) TBR list...I didn't want to put it down!" Emily Quinn, A Quintillion Words
