9781482763249: The Audacious Ladies of La Gran Sorellanza

In K-lee Starland's powerful debut novel, The Audacious Ladies of La Gran Sorellanza, the lines between family, duty, and honor are dangerously blurred. The 1950's find mafia boss Don Amato Rizoso determined to enter the lucrative human trafficking business. The only thing standing in his way? Loretta, Mary, Doris, Georgiana, and Meredith - the wives of Don Amato's most loyal and effective underlings. In the egregious absence of any federal laws or Immigration Customs Enforcement task force, these five wives are forced to go head-to-head with San Leandro's most corrupt group of players. Even as they desperately attempt to keep their identities a secret in order to protect all that is dear to them, these powerful women form their own group to rescue the victims of modern-day slavery. From Cambodia to Phoenix to Kiev to Los Angeles, the La Gran Sorellanza women embark on a mission that spans the globe. Witness their violent takedown of "The Cocaine Queen," their spontaneous formation of an underground rescue network, and the dramatic rescue of eight Cambodian girls on their way to slavery. But as they fight for vulnerable strangers, the inevitable question arises: will they be able to protect their own families? This twisting tale will instantly captivate audiences as they are plunged into a netherworld teeming with greed and corruption. In the face of unimaginable odds, Loretta, Mary, Doris, Georgiana, and Meredith work tirelessly to take down an empire built on the bodies of others. Although brought together through marriage, these women bond together through a common purpose: freeing the silent victims of human trafficking.
