Dream Catcher: The Call Home

Join Detective Jack Bondar and Dani Taylor on their continued journey to find her little sister, abducted at 14 and missing for the past 14 years. This sequel to The River of Tears delves into the psyche of sex traffickers and their victims. It explores their internal and external conflicts and the trauma that trafficked people and their families endure. It also explores the post-traumatic stress that many police officers experience in their work. It is a story about our roots, and the way we all long, at some point, to come home.

Dream Catcher: The Call Home SKU: 978-1-64504- 303-4 can also be purchased on Dio Press.

Content warning: The Guild is sensitive to the fact that members of a launch audience will respond differently to literary material. In a recent review of Dream Catcher, Cathy Peters, a human trafficking prevention officer, writes: “As an effective storyteller, Dr. Chrismas sheds light on the tension between the vulnerable and police in Canada, while tackling the complicated, harsh, and shameful reality of human sex trafficking in Canada. Dr. Chrismas gives us a glimpse into a world where human rights abuses occur daily and locally. Prevention can occur only if we know what this world looks like.”
