Summary

Until you know who to trust, trust no one.

The disappearance of a prep school girl from an affluent family leads to a world of hidden secrets, more shocking and horrifying than anyone could imagine.

FBI agent Victoria Heslin investigates alongside local police, but the mysteries only get deeper. Why are the girl’s parents so uncooperative? And why are the local authorities resisting her help?

When her efforts uncover a sex trafficking operation, Heslin enlists friend and fellow agent Dante Rivera to go rogue and try to save the girls, before it’s too late.

Pretty Little Girls is the second book in the Agent Victoria Heslin Series by USA Today best-selling author Jenifer Ruff. It can be listened to as a stand-alone.

 

 

My Review

4/5 Stars

When rich girls start to turn up dead, there are plenty of theories as to why. The parents are suspicious, everyone is suspicious. When FBI agent Victoria Heslin’s work takes her into the depths of a sex trafficking ring, she enlists the help of an old friend to save the girls stuck in that prison.

I didn’t read the first book in this series, but even so, it was easy to get lost in this second book. It was full of suspense, mystery, and intrigue. Every time I thought I figured it out, there were twists that threw me for a loop. Characters are solid, and even the bad guys had enough character development that it was easy to understand their motives.

Though this book deals with some heavy topics such as sex trafficking and corruption, it’s still an immersive read.

Narration is good, especially with the accents.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
