We’re excited to announce the release of Chrisopher Stollar’s thrilling novel, The Black Lens. Told through the eyes of a fierce female protagonist, Stollar’s book delves into the horrors of the sex industry–and how close to home traffickers can prey.
In a dark world of meth addiction, trailer parks and abuse, Zoey has seen it all. But when she and her disabled sister are forced into a small-town sex ring, the teenage girls find out just how brutal the world can be. And when someone kills her mother as retaliation for a failed escape attempt, Zoey decides to fight back.
Teaming up with a photojournalist, Zoey exposes wealthy and powerful men who play in the dirty, back-alley world of modern slavery. The price for her cooperation is freedom. The cost of failure is her life.
“The Black Lens is both compelling and heart wrenching. It shows the realistic, complex components of human trafficking in the United States. I know only too well how easily this can happen and how hard it is to escape. Excellent writing!”
— Theresa Flores, survivor of human trafficking, founder of TraffickFree and best-selling author of The Slave Across the Street
