Less than a month later, Tatiana and the others are forced into prostitution. Blood Borne Connections is a fictional thriller about the Mafia, human sex trafficking, and the ability to survive against all the odds. When a Mafia boss discovers some of his men are involved in sex trafficking children, he secretly instigates a Mafia war to cleanse his organization. In the middle of the killings, some good police officers and civilians vow to find the girls hidden in brothels all over California. They are prepared to go to any length to free them and to stop this from happening again. At the heart of this story is the injustice that so many suffer, especially children, at the hands of those seeking to exploit the innocent.

This is a story told from different points of view. In it you have the story of a young girl who along with four of her friends leave the orphanage in Czechoslovakia with the understanding that they will come to the US to either be adopted or hired as nannies only to be raped, beaten and forced into prostitution. It is about a woman who is warned by one of the girls that her husband plans to kill her for the insurance money to take the girl to Disneyland. Two detectives trying to solve the murder of 8 young girls while avoiding and fighting corruption in the LAPD and a man whose grandfather is the head of the west coast Mafia and wants him to take over when he retires or dies. Ms Lawson does a great job of blending all the elements together to produce a very good crime/human interest story that will keep the read both enjoying and thinking. The characters are believable and kept me wanting to read just a bit more instead of doing minor things like sleeping. Well worth getting and reading. NOTE: I received a copy of the book for an honest review.
