Talia Carner

Author Talia Carner's heart-wrenching suspense novels, PUPPET CHILD, CHINA DOLL, JERUSALEM MAIDEN and HOTEL MOSCOW, were hailed for exposing society's ills. Her upcoming novel is THE THIRD DAUGHTER, (HarperCollins, September 2019.)

Inspired by Shalom Aleichem's short story, "The Man From Buenos Aires," THE THIRD DAUGHTER is a frightening journey into the New World of the late 1900s, told by a trusting young woman lured from Russia and forced into prostitution in Argentina. When succeeding in the nascent art of tango, Batya finds courage in the face of danger and hope in hours of despair--and bravely struggles to free herself from bondage while bringing down the powerful pimps' union.
