Overview

(Leine Basso Thriller #2) Dangerous obsessions take center stage when a former assassin and a homicide detective race against the clock to find a missing girl before she's sold to the highest bidder.

BAD TRAFFICK named 2012 Top 5 Indie Pick by BloodWrites and a Night Owl Review Top Pick.

Identified as a person of interest in three cold case murders she didn't commit, and required to stay in L.A., retired assassin Leine Basso accepts a temporary position as a security specialist for A-list actor Miles Fournier. Soon, a woman contacts Miles claiming to be his long-lost sister. She confesses her twelve-year-old daughter, Mara, has been abducted. Desperate to get her back, she asks the actor to use his considerable resources to find her.

Leine learns that Mara has escaped from her kidnappers, who are determined to track her down and deliver her to their powerful client. Running out of time, Leine must find Mara before they do, or the young girl will be lost forever.

"...Ms. Berkom gives us a badass heroine that's fun to root for. Once Leine discovers what is happening, there is no stopping her. Five stars for Bad Traffick, an edge of your seat thriller that delivers..."
A. Mosa
"...Berkom shines a light on the grim trade of sex traffickers in this fast paced novel. She doesn't shy from exposing the business as something that happens here in America, not just in faraway places. Berkom has done an excellent job of weaving the information into an enjoyable thriller..."

Bloodwrites - Jen Blood
...Berkom does a stellar job of balancing action, multiple story lines, romance, and an admittedly important issue in society today: human trafficking. With grace and her usual wit, she manages to convey the seriousness of the issue without making the read too heavy or ever seeming as though she's writing from the soapbox...a thriller in the truest sense of the word: There's sex, there's violence, there's language, and Berkom pulls no punches in showing the darkest aspects of human trafficking..

Meet the Author

DV Berkom is a slave to the voices in her head. As the bestselling author of two award-winning thriller series (Leine Basso and Kate Jones), her love of creating resilient, kick-ass women characters stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those pages.

Raised in the Midwest, she earned a BA in political science from the University of Minnesota and promptly moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked. The Kate Jones adventure thriller, Bad Spirits, was first published in 2010 as an online serial, and was immediately popular with Kindle and Nook fans. Dead of Winter, Death Rites, and Touring for Death soon followed before she began the far grittier Leine Basso thriller series in 2012 with Serial Date. Now, she tries to give equal time to both Kate's and Leine's stories, a must for her (happily) impatient readers.

DV currently lives just outside of Seattle, Washington with the love of her life, Mark, a chef-turned-contractor, and several imaginary characters who love to tell her what to do. Her most recent books include A Killing Truth, Cargo, The Body Market, A One Way Ticket to Dead, and Yucatán Dead.
