When beautiful but tormented juvenile probation officer Christian Vargas discovers that babies are disappearing all over her rural Southeastern Washington State community of the Tri-Cities, she is determined to prove an illegal adoption ring is at work.

Her partner, Daniel, has recently been emotionally distant, so instead she woos case information from the notorious playboy and prosecutor, Oz Rellim. A second victim brings back horrifying memories of her own baby's death.

Through Rellim, the intrepid young woman gets clues, as she begins to track the nefarious man responsible for this underworld game of life and death, money, and misogyny. Using the supernatural skills taught her by her Mexican shaman, Christian attempts to stop the kidnapper by posing as a woman wanting to adopt, in this high-stakes game of cat and mouse.

"In this energetic third book in the Astrology Mystery series, the story centers on missing children and an illegal adoption ring. The latest installment reunites ambitious, dedicated, motorcycle-riding probation officer Christian Vargas with her 'charismatic Chicano' partner, Daniel O'Callahan, both hard on the trail of nefarious human traffickers responsible forthree separate child abduction cases. Vargas, ignoring the warnings of the department head who vouched for her on a former tricky case, jumps (secretly) at the chance to participate in yet another investigation ... More cleverly plotted suspense reliably anchored by a dogged heroine with verve to spare." - Kirkus Reviews
