Stolen Lives, by Jassy Mackenzie
There are so many things to like about this book. PI Jade de Jong is a great character, and Superintendent David Patel is a wonderful moral counterpoint. Bringing in the British detectives was interesting as well, though I guess it should have clued me into the fact that Jade's bodyguard gig and the police's human trafficking investigation might have something to do with each other. Duh. South Africa still ranks low in my vacation destinations thanks to Mackenzie.
