When three sisters overhear their father’s overwhelming deal to sell them into prostitution, they immediately take fate into their own hands in search of their own destiny. They embark on a powerful and compelling journey that takes root in the exotic realm of the Caribbean island of Labadee, later to spring fully fledged in the glamorous cosmopolitan city of New York. Out of the struggle emerges the valiant and beautiful heroine, Sahara, a sensational gold thief who gets herself entangled in sensuous political games and dangerous liaisons. Sahara is a story of love, lust, money, and betrayal that is ingrained with power, politics, and prejudice. The plot spins to a volatile climax that sets the stage for the ultimate scandal in the White House.

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
The adventures of Sahara make a truly gripping read and it is one of those tales where (i) you don’t want it to end and (ii) you can never guess what is going to happen next or work out how she will get out of the various scrapes she manages to get in to.
I found the mixture of fact and fiction where real life characters played their part in her life fascinating and believably handled (e.g. with Bill Clinton and Osama Bin Laden.)  All female, especially feminist, readers will identify with this strong lead character and the males would, like me, wish she was their friend. I have never before seen a strong lead character killed off at the conclusion in such a way that a sequel would be possible. Congratulations to Angella.
