“Satisfying and deeply unsettling, The Slave is part urban thriller, part examination of how we treat
our fellow humans, and as a bonus, is blessed with a fantastic soundtrack.” - Robert Ryan
. . .


"Excellent thriller about compassion, community, sex-trafficking and friendship.
London in its microcosmic worlds is beautifully described." - Amanda Craig

The Slave
 

The Slave was included in the programme of this year's Hampstead & Highgate Literary Festival, on 16 Sep 2013

A young loner visits a prostitute and pays for thirty minutes of her time. It's as simple as that.

As he leaves, she lets him know she's no prostitute at all. She's a captive, a prisoner, and she begs him to help.

What should he do? Go to the police?

How can he go to the police? He would be arrested. He has unwittingly committed a serious crime: paying for sex with a trafficked woman, a 'controlled' woman.

Besides, the police could not free her. Such women are held in detention centres before being deported - often straight back into the hands of the traffickers.

What do you think of such a man, who pays to use a woman's body? Has he done anything wrong? And what do you think he should do now?

The man is Neil Chapman and the woman is Liliana Petreanu. The Slave is the story of what Neil eventually does, and what happens to Liliana as a result.

And there's the impossible dilemma faced by Bernard Kassin, the respectable, law-abiding older neighbour, an observant Jew and a lover of community, to whom Neil turns desperately for help.

The Slave is a story about freedom and slavery, consent and coercion, law and lawlessness, in a quiet London suburb where such things really do happen.
