THE WEST 48th STREET CARGO
The book is progressing and should be finished in the next few months.
The plot is designed to bring attention to the plight of the underprivileged who naively, in trying to improve the lot of their boys and girls send them to apparently prosperous countries but instead unwittingly commit them to a life of torment, degradation and often loss of life.
The team of Lt Gill Nelson , Detectives Pianza, Grabofski and a newbie, Marsha Green, move as quickly as they can in the snowstorm conditions and arctic temperatures that are enveloping New York City.
We discover that the human trade business is fueled by an assortment of customers, from the prostitution parlours of this world to people requiring cheap forced labour and on to the high end of society who simply want to indulge their penchant for underage sex and have the money and influence to sate it.
Hope you enjoy the opening chapter and scene setter.
