Against the backdrop of wartime Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, Payback for Revenge is a literary suspense saga of a passionate love affair, the murder of a young girl, and the horror of an international prostitution slave ring. When a journalist, Chantal, leaves her opulent environment in New York to help her lover, Jovan, hunt down the murderers of his daughter, the couple enters a dark and dangerous world of war and crime. In reality, more than 300,000 Eastern European girls are smuggled to the West every year, doomed to the worst type of slavery and short, painful lives, to satisfy the insatiable appetites of rich countries for sex. Payback for Revenge tells the story of the workings of the biggest hub through which the girls are supplied, while the so-called 'civilized world' looks the other way.
