Maggie and Father Matthew enter into another sleuthing adventure when Father Francesco finds a human skeleton near the shore of the Columbia River in northern Oregon. It could be one of the Native American twin girls who disappeared without a trace five years before. Could the other girl, who would now be eighteen, still be alive? Maggie and the priests dive into the culture of their new community and soon find a hidden side that leads them down an insidious path that puts Maggie's very life in danger.This totally fictional novel exposes the totally nonfictional crime of sex trafficking, a taboo subject, that exists all around us. The victims are pulled into a dark world from which they may never escape. This criminal world is about power and money. The Girls Next Door is about the trafficked victims who are too often considered expendable, and whose suffering too often goes unavenged.
