136,000 people in the UK are in some form of slavery. This is big business, generating more than £1.2 billion annually for criminal organisations across the world.
Stolen Lives examines trafficking and slavery in Britain, hearing from those on the front line, including the police and charities involved with support and recovery. Powerful and moving testimony from survivors reveals the individual stories behind the headlines and charts one young woman’s terrifying and ultimately inspiring journey to freedom and independence.
Finally, it shows us what we can do to make a difference.
‘If you’ve ever doubted slavery exists in the 21st century, this is the book for you. Louise Hulland has a reporter’s grip on the facts and the heart to understand the brutal realities. A story about one person, and a story about millions. A must-read — how slavery came back. Modern slavery won’t end without books like this and investigators like Louise.’ -Jeremy Vine
‘A powerful, shocking and moving investigation into this horrendous crime lurking all around us.’ -Ayesha Hazarika
‘Louise tells the stories of trafficking survivors with a sensitivity and tact that is too often missing from mainstream discourse on the issue.’ -May Bulman
