"This novel reveals one of the most raw problems today: human trafficking and the networks of crime, corruption, extortion, and kidnapping that revolve around them. Aurora and Verónica, the protagonists, are young cousins, excited to start successful modeling careers. When they get to an agency to leave their photos, it seems like an amazing opportunity has opened up for them, one that is impossible to pass up. To follow their dream, they are to travel to Japan, where models of Latin origin are highly favored. Upon arriving in the country, they make the terrifying discovery that they have been victims of a scam. Now, like slaves, they belong to the Yakuza, the mafia that controls the business of drugs, arms, kidnapping, prostitution, and underground bars. Under threats, the young women are obliged to make their families believe that they are successfully breaking into the glamorous world of fashion, while they are living in hell. They must discover the way to escape and leave this nightmare behind"-- Provided by publisher.
