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.

Nothing bad about this book infact it's very good
I can't believe no one has left a review for this book. It's really good and I listened to it all in one sitting and will be getting the next book.
If you like kiss ass women with a high moral code and feelings but doesn't take s***t from anyone then this is the book for you. As well as a lot of gun fighting and fights it also has a mystery running through the story, the hero has to keep her high maintenance super star client alive but also work out why a thirteen year old girl keeps turning up with bad guys chasing her.
The narrator was very good and I loved some of the voices she used to play different characters. So all round a very good book.

Bad Traffick is the 2nd book in the Leine Basso series by bestselling and award-winning thriller author D.V Berkom and it’s one of those stories that will grab you from the first sentences and it won’t let go until the last word.
In Bad Traffick we follow the adventures of ex-CIA female assassin Leine Basso as she tries to distance herself from her previous profession. Unemployed, a mother and in love with a Police Officer, she has to figure out her future. When Leine gets a temporary job providing protection for one of Hollywood’s most successful actor, she finds herself assaulted on multiple fronts. She has to keep the Star safe, as he fears kidnapping, she needs to keep away impostors and in no time she is pulled into a serious situation involving a human trafficking ring and a missing girl. On top of that, some secrets from Leine’s past come to haunt her.
D.V. Berkom has that rare talent to write an intriguing story where things happen so fast and from all sides that you’ll not be able to put the book down or to stop listening. There are a few heart wrenching moments, one of them being the scene of a rape that I found very disturbing. I know the World is full of monsters capable of doing such things, I know the statistics at the end of the book are real, but sometimes I don’t want to believe such things exist, but hey, I’m the guy who doesn’t watch the news exactly because of these reasons. I prefer to keep the distance, to enjoy my books and to see it all as fiction.
Bad Traffick has it all: Gunfights and car chases, movie stars and assassins, beautiful women and powerful men, heroes and scumbags, love and sex. My first book written by D.V. Berkom ended up as a very enjoyable, suspenseful and unputdownable thrilling experience. I rooted for the good guys and hated the traffickers, I really enjoyed the actor’s character arc and I’ll start very soon with the next book in the Leine Basso series, hoping that it will be at least as good as this one.
The audiobook is performed by Kristi Alsip and she does a great job bringing all the main characters and the supporting cast to life. She reads very fast, amplifying the suspense,adding even more urgency to the already tense story. She uses different voices and accents to keep the most important characters differentiated for the listener and I can say that it was a very nice surprise to discover a new, talented, narrator. She is perfect for this series and I’m looking forward to listen to more books performed her.
Ladies, thank you for the entertainment!

What a book.
I found this book to be suspenseful, gripping and thought provoking. Both the author and narrator are talented. I loved the action in this fast moving story. Regarding the subject of human trafficking in this particular book, I was glad it had a happy ending for at least 1 person. I did not find there to be offensive language in the book. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. I did purchase the ebook prior to reviewing the audiobook. I will definitely look at more by both the author and narrator.
