"Constance was a quick-minded woman, twenty-seven years old, a freelance writer who had begun to make a reputation among some of the more solid publications. She had a wide-ranging intelligence, and her pieces covered everything from Middle East politics to new tendencies in American religious thought. Her latest interest had been in something that most people consider a dead issue: the white slave trade." But in one of Marco Vassi's most daring novels, Constance is about to learn that it is very much alive, vibrant even, and her experiences will turn professional conflict into personal turmoil. "Have a pleasant experience."
