4 Stars Mystery, Mayhem and Murder

By A. G. Lyttle April 2016

The latest novel by Edwin Tipple takes us halfway round the world in an intriguing mix of mystery, mayhem and murder. Only the alluring and beautiful Thai girl, Kat, gives hero, Robin Simmonds, the will to delve ever deeper into the sordid world of prostitution and human trafficking. I had the privilege of reading an advance copy and it's a story I kept wanting to return to, to see what happened next.

The Girl Takers gives the, sadly, all too common theme of trafficking a new twist by combining it with bent coppers and amateur sleuths. Add to this plenty of unexpected twists and mystery characters and you have a tantalising story to hold you to the end. I particularly enjoyed how the writer brings the Thai locations and people to life; he obviously knows both well.

5 Stars An Excellent Thriller

So many twists, turns and surprises make this book a good read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Girl Takers.

4 Stars A must read!

By J. E. Anderson June 2016

Edwin Tipple has done it again!

The Girl Takers is an intriguing, suspenseful read and I found it difficult to put the book down upon the conclusion of a chapter.

I think they call that a "cliff hanger"! That is to say, when the author/novel captures your interest/attention in such a manner that you just want to continue reading the book vs putting it aside for awhile.

Also, having been to Thailand, the images created by the author remind me of my time there.

I look forward to your next venture! Could it involve Kat & Robin?

Who knows?

unbelievably raw material.


Three terrifying things young ex-cop Robin Simmonds never had to deal with: UNTIL NOW.

Can he cope with all three? Will his rich girlfriend Kat, help him or just add to his troubles?

His life was going so well until he fell in love with her. But months later he still has serious doubts about Kat. Then, late one night after some passionate lovemaking, he assumes all his worries have come to an end – until she tells him what she’d really like him to do for her: something very special; something no other woman would ever ask of her lover; something very dangerous.

Her bombshell triggers the start of everything in their lives going bad: bad in the UK and bad the other side of the world. A side of the world in which Robin doesn’t understand the mystery that’s sucking them both into danger: a side of the world where the organized crime of trafficking girls for sex is perilous; a world that Kat thought she’d never experience. But now she has to learn how to survive in it or be the next in her family to die.

And the real mystery? Just who are The Girl Takers?
