OK, I need your help. I need a title for my new novel which is nearing completion.
It’s a novel based on what I know of human trafficking and modern slavery. A young woman and her friend are trafficked from a Nepal village to Kolkata, India. They are forced to do sex work in a brothel there. Her story is told through her own eyes. One of her frequent laments is ‘My god is dead.’
In the unfolding of the story I try to explain the reasons behind this ghastly trade, all of which are, of course, financial. The grim truth is basic economics.
I have narrowed it down to a choice of two, both of which would carry the sub-title along the lines ‘A story of the world’s most inhumane trade.’
Thank you for taking the time to vote.
