Crimson Falls
by DJ Davis and TR Kerby

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romantic Suspense

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Troyan Pryce had it all—a forensic pathology career, loving family, baby on the way—until a Mob kingpin bought her. Forced to use her special training and exceptional looks to rob men of their millions, she’s given up hope of ever having a life again, let alone finding romance. Until she meets her next mark, Assistant District Attorney Zachariah Taylor.

Detective Grace Griffin dedicated years to breaking a human trafficking ring. When her best friend, Zachariah, falls for a victim and is taken by the Mob, she must risk her life, badge, and heart to rescue him and the woman he loves. Can she save them, or will they all end up dead?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT TWO:

The girl huddled on the concrete bench in the corner of the cell, her knees tucked to her chin. She appraised Griff with green eyes, then looked away. Her stretch leggings were a size too small and her top plunged to dangerous levels. Bright red nails and false lashes added finishing touches. The spike heels that completed the ensemble sat outside the cell door.

Griff sat next to her. “I’m Detective Griffin ”She turned her face away and remained silent.
       
“I want to help you. I know you’re a slave, not a hooker.. This isn’t your life. They took your life from you.”

The girl scooted closer to the wall. “You’re going to get me killed.”

“Give me a name and I can end this.”

“I talk to you, I’m dead.”

“Is it Rosetti? Just blink. Twice for yes, once for no.”

She swallowed and blinked twice.
       
Griff opened the girl’s file and read the name. “Carrie. I’m going to help you. Hang in there, okay?”
       
Keys rattled in the lock and the door opened. An expensive suit filled the doorway in front of the duty officer. Carrie got to her feet and squeezed out of the cell.

“I hope you weren’t interviewing my client without her attorney present,” the suit said.

Griff stood eye to eye with the lawyer. “Of course not. I check on all the girls to make sure they don’t need medical assistance. She fully exercised her right to remain silent, and seems perfectly healthy.” She snapped the file closed and shouldered past him.

“Well?” Stacey asked when Griff returned to her desk.

“Definitely Rosetti’s. One of his hounds showed up before I got very far.”

“Now what?”

“Get inside Rosetti’s estate.”

“Good lord. If you disappear, where should I look?”

“The river or the morgue.”

“That’s not funny.”

“It wasn’t a joke,” she said on her way out the door. The bruises on Carrie’s neck and arms weren’t from an affectionate boyfriend. She needed help and, apparently, Griff was the only one willing to try.

The traffic blurred as the sun sank into a lava flow of cloud. Streetlights blinked on as she took the long route up the hill. She parked in the shadow of a hedged yard and killed the engine. Through the binoculars, Rosetti’s gate resembled a castle entrance. Fine brickwork and scrolled iron. A guard station squatted on the left side of the cobbled drive. Strategically placed floodlights revealed security pacing the fence. Handguns and batons hung from their belts.

Cracks of golden light seeped through drawn drapes on the massive house. And behind those drapes, a varied collection of human product. Whatever their clients could afford, they could have. Rosetti made sure of it.

Straight up prostitution. Easy peasy. Kids? No problem. If the product gave him trouble, snuff. Have fun with it. Knock yourself out. Pay before play. That money trickled through the filter of a hundred businesses, dripping out squeaky clean at the bottom. His web of connections kept him untouchable.

Griff planned to touch him.

MY BOOK REVIEW:


This book was such an interesting, suspenseful, and intriguing read!

I really liked the storyline and that it shed light on the modern-day slavery and trafficking world.  As it is an important topic and issue that is very active today, and ever more so here in Portland, Oregon, one of the highest cited cities of sex-trafficking in our country!!!

I liked the main characters, Troyan, ADA Zach, and Detective Grace, “Griff.”  They were realistic, likable, and genuine.

I felt awful for the difficult condition Troyan was put into and couldn’t imagine being sold to an evil mob boss and being ripped away from everything I knew and loved.  Regardless of being in such a dire position Troyan still held out hope for her future, especially after meeting her next required assignment and mark, ADA Zach.  I liked how much Zach wanted to help Troyan and what lengths he went to protecting her.  I like how tough and badass Griff is.  It’s clear she cares and values Zach.

This book is fast-paced and full of action that keeps you completely captivated in the story!  Between the blazing gun fights that had me squinting my eyes worried for my main characters and the holding my breath moments during the characters hiding – hoping they wouldn’t get found – it was at times an emotional rollercoaster ride!

There are some exciting twists and turns and unexpected moments that will keep you guessing!

This book has a great storyline that flows, terrific writing style with detailed scenes, well-developed characters, is fast paced, and keeps you completely entertained through the last page.

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend this book to all romantic suspense readers!

    1. Thank you, Ally, for hosting us. We're glad you enjoyed the book. We had a great time writing it. We especially want to thank you for providing the links to the trafficking prevention sites. There are more people in slavery today than at any other time in history. Less than 1% of trafficking victims are ever recovered. We can all do our part to call attention to this horrific issue and to help those who are victims by donating to organizations who provide aid. A21 is my pet organization. They provide safe houses, career instruction, and counseling for recovered victims. Their website is here: https://www.a21.org/index.php?site=true

  2. Thank you for hosting us and, more importantly, for listing the human trafficking hotline and information sites. If we can help just one person, it's all worth it.
