Newberg police officer Tia Suarez jumped off the page in Griffin’s Benefit of the Doubt, a Los Angeles Times bestseller. She takes center stage in A Voice from the Field, a gripping thriller about human trafficking.
Gunther Kane is the leader of a group of white supremacists based in tiny Newberg, Wisconsin. A weapons dealer, he’s funneled small arms to crooks all over the state. Now he’s preparing to make a major purchase of automatic weapons and other heavy arms. Problem is he doesn’t quite have enough money for the buy. So Kane and his second-in-command take a road trip to Southern California to buy a teenage Mexican girl from a coyote. On the way back to Newberg, they stop every night to “entertain” a line of men. If the girl dies along the way, no biggie—there’s always more where she came from. If she lives, he sells her to a pimp.
Tia is working vice when she crosses paths with Gunther Kane. The bust goes bad, but not before Tia glimpses a Hispanic teenager bound and gagged in the back of Kane’s van. The look of terror on the young woman’s face makes Tia desperate to rescue her, but there’s no time. Refusing to back down, Tia discovers that she’s stumbled onto the fringes of a major federal operation aimed at taking down Kane and his whole network.
The feds don’t care about a nameless, undocumented teenage girl. But Tia does. She’s Mexican herself. She knows where this young woman came from. She knows that somewhere, someone is missing her. Tia will have one chance—maybe— to stop Gunther Kane. She can’t afford to miss.
