Publisher's Summary

Sex trafficking.
Not Thailand. Or the Philippines. Or Russia. 
Rich or poor, black or white, girls disappear across this country every day, pulled into the nightmarish world of prostitution and drugs.
Mex Anderson is back, tasked with finding three missing girls before it's too late. Three girls. Three girls who could live in your town, your neighborhood, or in your own home.
Jayla Imani Thomas is 15. A smart kid from a poor part of town who has to fend for herself. Jayla is headed for college and a better life than her mother had.
Alexis Emily Halston is 17. Money provides everything she wants or needs except functional parents. Alexis has the world by the tail and she knows it.
Olivia Emma Campbell is 12. She's a middle child who dreams of being a veterinarian when she grows up. But right now "Livvy" just wants someone to notice her, maybe even to love her.
Caught up in a cruel system fueled by lust and money, all three young women must find the courage within themselves to survive. And Mex must come to terms with his own loss and face his demons head on - or he might not have the strength to save them.

Fiction based on hard reality...

This is a tuff one. Well written book. Hard story to listen to. Good to know that it's fiction. Horrible knowing that this book is based on reality and it happens every day.
With a title like TRAFFICKED it's pretty obvious that this book is about human trafficking. This is about young girls (and some boys) taken from their homes, neighborhoods and friends right here in the US. With the publisher's description and the other reviews I won't recap the actual story.
What I will say is I think the author did a wonderful job. She tells a story about trafficking for sex but the book doesn't get too descriptive. One thing I really liked is that through out the book the author adds what could be footnotes at the beginning on many chapters. I found myself writing these down and looking them up (Examples: Stockholm Syndrome in the Pimp-Victim Relationship By NATALIE KITROEFF , Selling Atlanta's children: What has and hasn't changed
By Jane O. Hansen, Special to CNN ). I think by weaving actual articles into the book increases credibility. Not that it's not believable because it is.
I think a different narrator would have been a good thing.
I paid for this book and did not get it for free. It's worth the credit.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book however for some this may prove to be a difficult read.

Fiction that Reads like Fact

'Trafficked' is about a problem so horrific, so brutal and difficult to think about, I'd almost call this a horror story. 'Trafficked' confronts the reality of human trafficking on American soil while exploring how victims can be manipulated and snatched with such unexpected ease. The three girls who fall prey in this story feel all too real, feel like people I've personally known. I would not suggest reading this book if you're sensitive to child abuse.

The characters in this story were absolute gold. Peg Brantly does a wonderful job of creating a diverse group of people that range from loathsome to righteous, from wealthy to impoverished, from lovable to despicable and across racial barriers as well. She also weaves suspense like a master while Sandra Murphy delivers a performance that isn't to be soon forgotten. With her expertise, I was immediately sucked into the story and her acting brought a level of emotionality to the tense moments that elevated the experience to a whole other level. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a thriller about a real savage problem in this country (and around the world) and who isn't super sensitive to child abuse.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

So very good

This is so good, it's a story that needs to be told. Very true to life, very heartbreaking real. Something that I feel strongly about. I have a lot of books on my kindle, including this now on this subject,
So very well written, great details you can tell the author has done her homework on this subject,
Narratives bySandra Murphy who was was truly outstanding, gave it her all. Beautifully read.
To me it's a story that needs to be told. It happens everywhere, nowhere is this subject safe.

Gritty Fiction

Not a story for the faint-hearted. This audiobook is about human trafficking and follows the story of three young girls. They are all different ages and from different backgrounds, but all suffer at the hands of their captors, plus they have to deal with the knowledge of the betrayal by someone they trusted.
Mex is the man who is drawn into the case by the wealthy family to investigate the disappearance of their daughter. He soon realises there are other missing girls and makes it his goal to get them back.
Overall I enjoyed the way the story was told and the narrator did a good job. I felt the male character voices could have been a little more masculine, especially Mex. But it didn't put me off continuing. Well worth a listen.
I was given a copy of this audiobook for an honest review.
