This Hazel Micallef series continues to draw me in although this book was a little harder to read at times due to the subject matter dealing with global human trafficking Hazel is a determined and strong character one I We Were Soldiers Too Serving As A Reagan Soldier During The Cold War enjoy learning about inach book A Door in the River A Hazel Metcallef Mystery by Inger Ash Wolfe was an book from Net Galley I read The Calling by Wolfe actually the pseudonym of Michael Redhill a few years ago and had mixed feelings I thought the characters were well done liked
