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. 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.

“Whether you have read Serial Date or not, you will love Bad Traffick. Read either one and you’ll go back for the other anyway, so why not start at the beginning? Bad Traffick takes the Leine-Santiago pairing to new heights and adds a beautifully fleshed out story line full of real characters you are going to love.

“Utterly gripping, compelling, edge-of-your seat writing. I’d say the only problem is, you’re left wanting more. As it happens, that’s nicely solved (thank goodness) by book number three, which is burning a hole on my Kindle waiting to be read forthwith! Highly recommended.” ~Cath ‘n’ Kindle Book Reviews
