On Trafficking …

So I am researching the very sad and disturbing issue of sex trafficking which features as a theme in my book.  It is really difficult to read some of the stories and I have found myself drawn into a web of terror and fear, and hours later I still feel like I only know the tiniest bit about the issue.  Whilst the broader and no less tragic issue of people smuggling / asylum seekers gets a lot of coverage, human trafficking for the sex trade in this country seems to go largely unnoticed.  

It is a challenge weaving this theme into my work of fiction without getting caught up in the politics of it all.
