A dangerous foray into the world of human trafficking

When a Kiev video store is torched, the wife of the now-deceased owner—and primary suspect in the arson case—hires private investigator Janos Nagy. As he delves into the woman’s past, Janos discovers things are far more than meets the eye, and as the case is pursued further, a human trafficking plot unfolds from Kiev across the Ukraine. With mixed involvement of Eastern European and Russian mafia, the Ukraine Secret Service, and both orthodox and nonorthodox church rivalries, the race to untangle the threads of the international trafficking ring turns quickly to a matter of life and death.


"A page-turner of the highest order: from the compelling characterization to the vividly described landscape of a devastated Ukraine to the stunning cover art, Beres has penned himself a winner."  —Paul Goat Allen, Chicago Tribune, on Chernobyl Murders

“Michael Beres gets better and better with each book he writes."  —Diane Nemitz, Ludington Daily News on Chernobyl Murders
