Nobody’s Child

Libby Fischer Hellmann. Red Herrings (, $16.99 trade paper (362p) ISBN 978-1-938733-46-8
Former cop–turned-PI Georgia Davis takes on what could be her most personal case yet in Hellmann’s thrilling fourth installment in her Chicago-based series (after 2011’s Toxicity). Georgia always thought she was an only child, until she receives a bloodstained note revealing that she has a half-sister, Savannah, who’s not only in trouble but is pregnant. With little to go on, Georgia soon discovers that Savannah, who’s almost 16 and goes by the name Vanna, is caught up in Chicago’s underground human trafficking ring, which provides whoever’s willing to pay with everything from organs to babies, not to mention girls for sex. Few people are willing to talk to Georgia about the details of the operation, but the wily PI soon learns that a former foe could be an asset in bringing her sister home safely. Hellmann ratchets up the tension with each chapter, and the reader is constantly kept wondering about the fate of both sisters. (BookLife)
