See Me Not

By Réal Laplaine

Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


"See Me Not" is a literary fiction and thriller about an eight year old girl who was sold into prostitution by her own father at the age of eight, and who, after four years in sexual slavery, is discovered by a university student vacationing in her city. His mission becomes to free her, and his passion to do so takes him down some very dark and sordid roads as he desperately fights against the criminal underworld. A story about hope and courage and an ambassador and voice for those trapped in the web of human trafficking.




I write to inspire, to light fires in people, to kick crusty old mediocrity in the head, to help open doors to new worlds, new dimensions, new ideas and ultimately to a better culture and a better world. One where intelligence, creativity and dreams transcend war, hatred and greed. I believe we were meant to aspire to great things - not just to be caretakers for one tiny planet, barely a grain of sand in a universe just waiting to be explored. All but two of my books so far fall into a category called high-concept thrillers. What is that? Definitions vary depending on who you ask, but in my view of it, since I write in that world, the high-concept thriller covers many sub-genres of thrillers, such as crime, scifi, geopolitical and suspense, all of which I write in, and what makes it a high-concept thriller is the originality and uniqueness of the idea which drives the book from the very outset. Whereas a romance novel is usually predictable, appealing to emotions, sultry love scenes and even betrayal, the high concept thriller presents a unique twist which instantly conceptualize an entirely different platform in the reader's mind. A high-concept romance, if there is such a thing, would see the man falling in love with, let's say, a woman from another dimension - thus converting it from the norm to the unusual. Such novels as Angels and Demons (Dan Brown), or The Martian (Andy Weir) might be seen as high-concept thrillers. The concepts themselves drive the story and the characters are developed along the way and add to the appeal.
