When reporter Carol Childs is called to the scene of a body dump she has no idea she’s about to uncover a connection to a string of missing girls. Young, attractive women drawn to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood via an internet promise of stardom and romance have been disappearing. A judge’s daughter leaves behind a clue and a trip down Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame reveals a connection to a high powered real estate mogul and to a cartel targeting girls for human trafficking.

Old Hollywood has its secrets, its impersonators and backdoor entrances to old speakeasies and clubs where only those with the proper credentials can go. And when Carol Childs gets too close, she finds herself politically at odds with powers that threaten to undue her career and like the very girls she’s seeking, disappear.

I really enjoyed this book and despite the fact that I didn’t start with book 1 in this series (this is only the 2nd book), I don’t feel like I missed out too much on the personal story between Carol and Eric and even the friendship between Carol and Sheri.

This was a good twist on a topic that we don’t see a lot in the news, sex trafficking. I was sort of surprised that Carol made this connection so early in the book. I’m not sure what tipped her off that this is what was happening to the missing women and young girls in the city. Carol rightfully suspects a certain character, but some of what is revealed about this character is definitely mind boggling. I don’t want to give anything away, but the author touches on some important issues.

Definitely an enjoyable read and I need to go back and read book 1 and can’t wait for book 3!  We give this 4 paws up!
