Jo Cooper leads an uneventful life, selling jewellery on a Greenwich market stall and trying not to pay attention to the noises made by the S&M devotees who live next door. An ex-drug-addict herself, she has a penchant for rescuing people, which gets her in trouble when she helps a frightened girl escape from some Russian thugs. The mysterious woman overturns Jo's life, plunging her into the world of illegal immigration and prostitution, where human lives are ruthlessly traded, and violence and distrust are rife.

Debi Alper lives in South London with her young family. She is a finance officer at London Advice Services Alliance and a part-time wedding photographer. Trading Tatiana is her second novel.Review:
'A blackly comic thriller where a London market trader finds herself plunged into the world of illegal immigration and teenage prostitution.' lovereading.co.uk 'Sparkling, fast paced and blackly comic.' tangledweb.co.uk '...an unorthodox mix of comedy, kitchen-sink drama and dark thriller...Alper...move[s] the narrative seamlessly from the comic opportunities sexual perversion provides, to the darker, violent side of prostitution and sexual slavery.' -- Martin Tierney HERALD (5.2.05) 'Alper has a gift for voices... She understands suspense, too. The pace is fast; as Jo gets further and further embroiled into what is patently a very dangerous situation, the tension increases, new characters get involved and the plot, as the cliche goes, thickens very satisfactorily.' SHOTSMAG.CO.UK (February 2005) 'her voice is fresh and bright and laced with a darkly delicious anarchic sense of humour.' -- Roz Clarke CHATSHOW.NET (February 2005) 'pacey, funny, heart-warming...This is about the grim existence of desperate people clinging on at the brink, yet told with great humour and love. It is brilliantly written with all the underlying tensions of a terrific page-turner. Get out there, buy it, and read it.' -- Gwyn Griffiths MORNING STAR (21.2.05) 'Trading Tatianais a rapidly-moving novel that blends black comedy, soft politics and an array of well-developed characters to form a book that is immensely entertaining and packed with unexpected twists.' LATEST 7 (February 2005) 'a fast-paced thriller.' LIVING SOUTH MAGAZINE (1.2.05)
