Steve Liskow

Author Steve Liskowabout this book: Human trafficking has always been a serious problem, but many people prefer to believe it only happens "over there."

In his second Zach Barnes mystery novel, Liskow presents the ugly truth about teen trafficking in central Connecticut, along the notorious Berlin Turnpike, which connects Hartford and New Haven. Once a major thoroughfare, the road has deteriorated into a phalanx of fast food malls, strip joints, and no-tell motels where the prostitution trade may be the only way the places survive.

Barnes searches for a teenaged girl who has disappeared from her posh private school and uncovers information leading him to suspect the girl has been forced into prostitution. As he digs deeper, he discovers a ring that is trafficking young girls, but also dealing in blackmail, extortion, and murder.

Over the objections of his beautiful girlfriend and his research associates, Barnes and Hartford police officer Rasheena Maldonado fight an uphill battle against corruption and willful denial to save a terrified band of young girls from a life that could end violently at any time.
