Bad Traffick named a 2012 Top 5 Indie Pick by BloodWrites and a Top Pick by Night Owl Reviews.
Be sure to pick up Serial Date, the best-selling first novel in the Leine Basso series.
Identified as a person of interest in three cold case murders she didn't commit, retired assassin Leine Basso accepts a temporary position as a security specialist for A-list actor Miles Fournier. Leine finds she has her hands full trying to protect the head-strong celebrity, while at the same time fighting her desire for Detective Santiago Jensen; a game she knows she can't win.
Soon, a woman contacts Miles, claiming to be his long-lost sister. She confesses her 12-year-old daughter, Mara, has been abducted by human-traffickers and she's desperate to get her back, hoping that Miles will use his considerable resources to find her.
Leine learns from a contact at a rescue organization that Mara escaped and is alone on the streets in the sprawling city of Los Angeles. The traffickers are determined to track her down and deliver her to the powerful client who purchased her for his twisted ends. Running out of time, Leine must find Mara before they do, or she will be lost forever.
