Overview

Blood Borne Connections by Gladys Lawson

Fifteen-year-old Tatiana leaves an orphanage in Czechoslovakia with four other girls for a new start in America, where they are promised a better life. 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.

About the Author

Gladys Lawson currently lives in London and works as a microbiologist in pathology management and also volunteers as an inspirational mentor. She says, "I was greatly inspired by the need to tell a story where despite the evil displayed, good wins, good survives and good reaches out and makes a difference. The relationship between my different characters was something that I really enjoyed writing about." She is currently working on her next book.This is what Glady's had to say about her volunteer work."I like being an Inspiring the Future volunteer because I believe that it is one way that we as adults can make a difference to children. Not every child has encouraging parents or teachers and if I can go into a school and encourage a child to fulfil their potential and hopefully impart some of my knowledge to a child then I think I have made a difference. My mother always told me to work hard, believe and never give up - I tell my children the same thing today. I truly believe that if a child can perceive that they have a good future and believe that all things are possible if they work hard then they will one day achieve their full potential.I talk to children about working in Microbiology management and writing books because that Is what I do, there are so many adults out there in various professions who I think should volunteer and make a difference - the children are our future and who knows, you may go into a school and impart your knowledge to a child and not only change their life - you might actually save their life."

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.
