  • God in a Brothel

    God in a Brothel

    God in a Brothel, written by one of Nvader's founders Daniel Walker. The story of an undercover investigator’s experiences infiltrating the multi-billion dollar global sex industry. It is a story of triumph for the children and young women released from a life of slavery and the rescuer who freed many hundreds of victims leading to the prosecution of dozens of perpetrators. It is a story of haunting despair for those left behind in corrupt systems of law enforcement. And finally it is the personal story of Daniel Walker, one man who followed a path of costly discipleship, agonizing failure and unlikely redemption. Perhaps most crucially, it is a challenge to all people to join in the battle to set people free from this most evil form of modern day slavery.

  • Disposable People by Kevin Bales

    Disposable People by Kevin Bales

    Slavery is illegal throughout the world, yet more than twenty-seven million people are still trapped in one of history's oldest social institutions. Kevin Bales's disturbing story of slavery today reaches from brick kilns in Pakistan and brothels in Thailand to the offices of multinational corporations. His investigation of conditions in Mauritania, Brazil, Thailand, Pakistan, and India reveals the tragic emergence of a "new slavery," one intricately linked to the global economy. The new slaves are not a long-term investment as was true with older forms of slavery, explains Bales. Instead, they are cheap, require little care, and are disposable.

  • Walking Prey by Holly Austin Smith

    Walking Prey by Holly Austin Smith

    Today, two cultural forces are converging to make America's youth easy targets for sex traffickers. Younger and younger girls are engaging in adult sexual attitudes and practices, and the pressure to conform means thousands have little self-worth and are vulnerable to exploitation. At the same time, thanks to social media, texting, and chatting services, predators are able to ferret out their victims more easily than ever before. In Walking Prey, advocate and former victim Holly Austin Smith shows how middle class suburban communities are fast becoming the new epicenter of sex trafficking in America.
