Today sees the publication of Trafficked Dreams by Heather Osborne. It’s the first in a new crime fiction series and tells a tale of human trafficking, set in the dark side of San Francisco. Here is the book cover with the blurb:
Three words will launch Inspector Briana Ryu of the San Francisco PD into the forefront of an investigation into the darker side of her city. When a young boy reaches out to Bri, begging her to save him and his sister, but then vanishes into the night, Bri thinks that will be the end of it—that is, until he is found dead six months later.
Catapulted into the violent and horrifying world of human trafficking, Bri races against time to find his missing sister.
Will she manage the unfathomable task, or will the girl be swallowed up by the city Bri holds dear?
I have read previous books by Heather and enjoyed them, but she has upped her game with this novel. This is an interesting and at times, highly emotive story that will have you rooting for Briana to solve the case and hunt down the bad guys. I particularly liked the inclusion of short chapters that focus on Lina, the young woman that Briana is trying to find. They give an insight into what Lina is going through, and work well alongside knowing how the investigation is progressing.
If you enjoy faced paced crime fiction that isn’t afraid to face the dark side of human nature, then I recommend you grab a copy.
