Inspired by real-life events, TWISTED is a gripping New Adult suspense thriller about vulnerability, courage and the art of making a living in the sex trade. Back in the 90’s, the corrupt post-Soviet Ukraine with its faltering economy is thrown into a devastating depression. Times are hard. Opportunities are scarce. Three young and eager sisters – Natalia, Lena and Julia - dream of a better life, and weigh their options: do they stay and struggle like their parents, or join scores of their compatriots in the sex trade in glittering western European cities, who earn in a night what they’d take several months to earn at home? Naive and tempted by the allure of 'quick' money, the girls set off on an adventure that changes their lives forever... Can they stay out of trouble enough to fulfill their ambitions? Can they hold on to their idealism in a world where depravity and danger are constant companions? How far are they willing to go to make a buck?
