An Innocent Client by Scott Pratt

 

 

 A preacher is found brutally murdered in a Tennessee motel room.

A beautiful, mysterious young girl is accused.

In this bestselling debut, criminal defense lawyer Joe Dillard has become jaded over the years as he's tried to balance his career against his conscience. Savvy but cynical, Dillard wants to quit doing criminal defense, but he can't resist the chance to represent someone who might actually be innocent. His drug-addicted sister has just been released from prison and his mother is succumbing to Alzheimer's, but Dillard's commitment to the case never wavers despite the personal troubles and professional demands that threaten to destroy him.

"Pratt's richly developed characters are vivid and believable, especially the strong Southern women who fight their male-dominated culture from behind a facade of vulnerability in this brilliantly executed debut." -- Publisher's Weekly

"It's Scott Turow and Grisham... The opening chapter is maybe the most compelling I've read in a decade." - Ken Bruen

Smart and sophisticated, with a plot twist that will leave you shaking your head in wonder, "An Innocent Client" -- the first in the acclaimed Joe Dillard series -- will also leave you begging for more.

The Innocent Children by Peter C Bradbury

 

 

Human Traffickers earn up to 35 Billion Dollars a year. They are ruthless and give no thought whatsoever to the victims and what happens to them. They take them, buy them, then sell them to anybody.80% of the trafficked are sold into the sex trade and the biggest demand is for the children. Taken away from their families, these children are drugged, tortured, then repeatedly raped. They have nowhere to run to, are unable to fight back, and their average age is 11. Their life expectancy once they are taken, is 7 years.In the US, like everywhere else, human trafficking is getting worse. Thousands of children who flee their homes looking for adventure and excitement, or just an escape, get picked up by the traffickers. Their lives, along with those who are smuggled into the country, and others who are taken literally from their own doorsteps, are suddenly lost.The Innocent Children is a novel about those who are affected by the child sex trade in the US, what they have to go through, and how difficult it is for law enforcement, especially the FBI, to find them and prosecute the traffickers.
