Lost Girls: A Sherry Moore Novel

George D. Shuman, . . Simon & Schuster, $25 (244pp) ISBN 978-1-4165-5301-4

Shuman's provocative third thriller to feature blind psychic Sherry Moore (after Last Breath ) puts a troubling, unsavory issue front and center. When Sherry uses her unusual gift—the ability to “see” the final seconds of a dead person's life—to help save some stranded mountain climbers in Alaska's Denali National Park, she gets an unexpected and horrific glimpse of the sexual slave trade. After learning more about the tortured women she sees in her vision, Sherry doesn't hesitate to make a dangerous trip into the wilds of Haiti in search of justice. Sherry's unique talent opens doors for her, but it's her determination to live a full, active, useful life and her grit when things get rough that makes her such an appealing hero. Shuman puts a human face on the victims of human trafficking while painting a shameful picture of the failure of the world's nations to address the problem. (Sept.)
