Flesh Market by Kate Lowell
Series: Bodies and Souls #1
Published by Loose Id Genres: Contemporary, MM
Eighteen months of deep undercover work is about to implode for FBI Special Agent Leo Gale. As Dale Leon, a disgraced former cop, he’s managed to infiltrate a powerful sex trafficking operation, but he’s been unable to get enough evidence to catch the top layer of criminals involved. He needs help.
With an eye towards becoming an FBI Analyst young Julian Fitzroy is thrilled to clinch a position in the Honors Internship. It’s a solid foot in the door. Julian isn’t interested in a career in the field, but when he’s approached for a possibly dangerous field assignment he can’t turn away from the challenge.
Leo finally gets a break with the chance to introduce Julian as his kidnap victim. Living with evil for so long Leo is reminded of how horrible it is by seeing the sex trade through Julian’s eyes. Moving up the ladder Leo also learns how truly dangerous these criminals are. It’s imperative they get the evidence they need. For Leo and Julian to survive both men will have to use every trick in the book. There are no guarantees, less when you walk into a nightmare.
A hard, brutal look at the worst illegal trade. Flesh Market resonates with truth and sorrow. This realistic, gritty look at sex trafficking strips the FBI agents of their humanity. Every action taken by the agents is checked by strong motivations to catch the criminals. Leo and Julian barely survive the bleak world in Flesh Market knowing that someone has to go that extra mile. Definitely not a typical romance, yet the characters strength and commitment rings loud and clear.
