A gritty thriller inspired by true events!
Smuggled babies have gone missing after the grizzly massacre of their migrant caretakers in the California desert. Now only a scrupulous reporter with the aid of a compassionate trafficker hold the key to finding them. A rollicking feast of perverse characters frantically trying to stay alive while making a buck doing it.
“Highly entertaining and realistic … Argo richly fleshes out his characters, and they show plenty of heart .... The author’s keen sense of time keeps readers engaged … Readers will enjoy the huge, unexpected plot twists. An engaging mystery that delves into the visceral greed that drives human behavior.”—Kirkus Reviews
"Dramatic and gripping. Readers cannot help but feel invested ... Former foster child Maggie Frazier wants to open a home to help other orphans but her life begins to unravel. One of her babies is missing, her dad is killed, and a border patrol agent comes calling for the money she stole ... Maggie crosses paths with a reporter facing his own troubles. Ray Myers is fired from his job as crime reporter but can't stop searching for a missing infant ... His search for the truth takes him across the border to Mexico. Ray and Maggie form an unlikely pair as people do the wrong things for the right reasons. Argo's tale also manages to tug at your heartstrings."--Teva Hutchinson, Library Journal
"This exciting, plot driven novel with all its twists and turns and colorful cast of characters would rivet thriller movie audiences, another of those books you can't put down once you get started. Argo gives readers many realistic characters to both love and hate in Baby Love. Even some of the baddies, like Bubba, have a good side. When the intricate plot comes to a thundering, satisfying close, you will want to check out what else Ronald Argo has written. This author is that good!"--Viga Boland, Readers'Favorite 5 star
