stonian émigré Erika Livoni knows something terrible has happened the minute she returns to the clothing boutique. She had just popped into another store, leaving her older sister, Katarina, to browse — last minute shopping on Christmas Eve. But now the boutique is locked, its lights are off, and Katrina is gone. Erika calls the police, who arrive only to confirm her worst fears. The boutique is now empty of everything, even clothes. The police suspect the store is a front for a ruthless Albanian sex-trafficking group.
