Publisher's Summary

Dangerous obsessions take center stage when an ex-assassin and a homicide detective race against the clock to find a missing girl before she's sold into slavery.

Bad Traffick named a 2012 Top 5 Indie Pick by BloodWrites and a Top Pick by Night Owl Reviews.

Be sure to pick up Serial Date, the best-selling first novel in the Leine Basso series.

Identified as a person of interest in three cold case murders she didn't commit, retired assassin Leine Basso accepts a temporary position as a security specialist for A-list actor Miles Fournier. Leine finds she has her hands full trying to protect the head-strong celebrity, while at the same time fighting her desire for Detective Santiago Jensen; a game she knows she can't win.

Soon, a woman contacts Miles, claiming to be his long-lost sister. She confesses her 12-year-old daughter, Mara, has been abducted by human-traffickers and she's desperate to get her back, hoping that Miles will use his considerable resources to find her.

Leine learns from a contact at a rescue organization that Mara escaped and is alone on the streets in the sprawling city of Los Angeles. The traffickers are determined to track her down and deliver her to the powerful client who purchased her for his twisted ends. Running out of time, Leine must find Mara before they do, or she will be lost forever.

    "Action Packed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, Berkom has done an excellent job of weaving the thriller plot with interesting characters while maintaining a fast paced story.


    What other book might you compare Bad Traffick to and why?

    Serial Date. Bad Traffick brings back some of the favorite characters from Serial Date and fleshed them out even more. Each book sheds more light on them and peeling their personalities, the good and bad, like an onion.


    What does Kristi Alsip bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was exactly how I imagined Leine Basso would sound. Loved her inflections and emotions brought to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when the actor Leine works for briefly discusses his childhood. It's not what the reader expects he'd reveal.


    Any additional comments?

    Berkom shines a light on the grim sex trafficking trade. This is fast paced with an interesting plotline. She doesn't shy from exposing the business and that happens here and just in faraway places.

    Story
    "Great narration for a great thriller"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bad Traffick to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed both versions of Bad Traffic, but I really enjoyed this narrator.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bad Traffick?

    When the Sponge Bob rescues Mara from the streets.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene when Leine and Santa's eyes met across the street. I also really loved Miles, the wacky movie star, in all his scenes.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Leine Basso must track down a missing 12 year old girl before the sex-traffickers get to her. Hampered by a feckless movie idol, his would-be sister, and her forbidden obsession with homicide detective Santiago Jensen, Leine faces challenges she had never imagined.

    Leine. She is such a great heroine.

    Story
    "Good thriller"

    I would recommend this audiobook. The narrator is easy to listen to and the story is fast-paced and interesting. It's about a former assassin who is assigned as a bodyguard for a well known actor. His long-lost sister shows up out of the blue and asks for his help locating her daughter who has been kidnapped by traffickers. The assassin goes after the little girl to try to save her and has to deal with attempts on her life (from an old adversary) among other things. Lots of suspense and some romance. Interesting information on human trafficking at the end.

    If you like thrillers, you;ll like this book.
