Now Available! The first 3 books in the action-packed, unputdownable Leine Basso crime thriller series: Serial Date, Bad Traffick, and The Body Market.
SERIAL DATE: When a former assassin's daughter is abducted, she's drawn into the twisted game of a serial killer who may be a grisly remnant from her past.
What happens when a reality show turns deadly?
Determined to leave her old life behind, retired assassin Leine Basso accepts a job working security at one of television's most popular reality shows, Serial Date. When a contestant is found dead in the prop closet, it appears the killer is one of the 'bachelors' on the show- an ex-con billed as a serial killer- but the detective in charge of the case isn't so sure.
When Leine's estranged daughter is abducted by a man claiming to be the real killer, she's forced to rely on old skills to find her, and must come to terms with who she really is. She soon realizes the murderer may be a grisly remnant from her past and she'll need to use all of her cunning to stop him...
...and rescue her daughter.
BAD TRAFFICK: 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.
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. But she's got a problem: her twelve-year-old daughter, Mara, has been abducted and she's desperate to get her back.
Leine learns from a contact that Mara escaped, but the traffickers 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 she will be lost forever.
THE BODY MARKET: A retired assassin is called in when a celebration south of the border turns into a nightmare.
Everything's for sale...
Former assassin Leine Basso is hired by a wealthy Beverly Hills power couple to find their missing daughter, Elise, last seen partying with her boyfriend at a club in Tijuana. At first, police believe the two teenagers are the victims of a carjacking. But when Leine finds their missing vehicle with the boyfriend’s mutilated body inside, and the local cartel warns her away, she knows if Elise isn’t already dead, she will be soon, or worse.
In the lethal world of organized crime, there’s always a worse.
As Leine races to uncover the reason behind Elise Bennett’s disappearance, she must also battle the powerful interests fighting to keep her from the truth.

About the Author
DV Berkom is the USA Today best selling author of two action-packed thriller series featuring strong female leads: 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 and a multitude of adventures later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked. Bad Spirits, the first Kate Jones thriller, was published as an online serial in 2010 and was immediately popular with eBook fans. Dead of Winter, Death Rites, and Touring for Death soon followed before she began the far grittier Leine Basso series in early 2012 with Serial Date. D.V. currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with the love of her life, Mark, a chef-turned-contractor, and several imaginary characters who like to tell her what to do. Her most recent books include A Killing Truth, Cargo, The Body Market, Vigilante Dead, A One Way Ticket to Dead, and Yucatán Dead. For more information, visit her website at www.dvberkom.com.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
DV Berkom writes a fast-moving thriller that leaves a trail of blood and perseverance across each page. With Leine Basso she is a woman assassin who is trying to distance herself from her past, but that isn’t always easy. Start with the boxed set and then you won’t miss a moment of the exciting ride. Every book is worth every penny.
Meet Leine Basso, retired assassin with plenty of attitude. A sizzling affair with a sexy cop, nonstop action and serious social issues, the Leine Basso series ticks all the boxes for me. In Serial Date, she must catch a serial killer preying on reality show contestants…and Leine’s estranged daughter. Bad Traffick brings Leine into the world of superstars … and human trafficking. Body Market takes her to Mexico to solve the missing persons case of two rich kids…with grisly, intense consequences. If you want to stay up at night tearing through three fascinating reads, I recommend this boxed set.
Every Leine Basso story gets better and better. Her relationship with LAPD detective, Santa Jensen, has grown while becoming more complex as they deal with issues their two professions create between them. In the Body Market, DV has ratcheted up the intensity level while shining a light on the dark world of the sex trade. DV's stories take on the topics of the day and give the reader a devilishly exciting roller coaster of a ride.
Good deal, great reads. Can't go wrong if you like action thrillers.
Keeps Interesting! Good action. Kick assume broad
