Rough Trade is a harrowing and deeply disturbing look at the life of a woman who went from being a police officer, her downfall through drugs and corruption, and into a life of prostitution. It is also a look at the murder of a number of prostitutes by a serial killer.

What the author does well is to capture the lives of people living in horrific circumstances, and paints a picture of real people living those lives, which are so far outside of the norm for most readers. I am not saying that these are nice people by any means, but they are well fleshed out, even if they are truly monsters.

This is not an easy book to read, because of the subject matter, but it was an interesting look at the lives of the people at the center of this horrific situation.

I received a review copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
