Nobody's Child

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

A bloodstained note left for PI Georgia Davis reveals the shocking existence of a half-sister she never knew about. Her sister, Savannah, is pregnant and begging for Georgia’s help. Determined to track her down, Georgia finds herself heading deep into the secretive and dangerous underworld of Chicago’s illegal sex trafficking business. She soon discovers that trafficking is just a small part of the horrifying and deadly situation in which her new sister is caught up. Even worse, as Georgia tries to extricate Savannah, she comes up against an old enemy determined to make sure neither woman will escape alive. In the fourth Georgia Davis novel, Georgia faces her toughest challenge yet—and one she might not survive.
Reviews
Former cop–turned-PI Georgia Davis takes on what could be her most personal case yet in Hellmann’s thrilling fourth installment in her Chicago-based series (after 2011’s Toxicity). Georgia always thought she was an only child, until she receives a bloodstained note revealing that she has a half-sister, Savannah, who’s not only in trouble but is pregnant. With little to go on, Georgia soon discovers that Savannah, who’s almost 16 and goes by the name Vanna, is caught up in Chicago’s underground human trafficking ring, which provides whoever’s willing to pay with everything from organs to babies, not to mention girls for sex. Few people are willing to talk to Georgia about the details of the operation, but the wily PI soon learns that a former foe could be an asset in bringing her sister home safely. Hellmann ratchets up the tension with each chapter, and the reader is constantly kept wondering about the fate of both sisters. (BookLife)

Private investigator Georgia Davis returns to her Chicago apartment late one evening and discovers a note left in her mailbox “Georgia, I am your half-sister, Savannah.  I’m in Chicago and I’m pregnant.  I need your help. Please find me.”  Davis was unaware that she had any siblings at all, so is the note a hoax or does she really have a half-sister who is in trouble?  And where should she even begin to look?  Georgia decides that she must find out and her search eventually takes her to the seamy underbelly of Chicago’s sex-trafficking business.  But it turns out that that is merely the tip of the horrors that Davis must face if she is to find and rescue the young woman who may or may not be related to her. 

Following on the heels of several excellent standalone novels, Libby Fischer Hellmann has returned to Georgia Davis, one of her earlier series characters.  It is like coming back to an old friend who has been away too long.  This is the fourth solo novel about Davis, although she initially appeared in Hellmann’s earlier Ellie Foreman series (and Ellie returns the favor here).  Another character from Davis’ past is also on the scene, this one not nearly so welcome to her as Ellie is. 

This dark tale, well-told, examines troubling and terrible issues in our society.  Hellmann is an expert at tearing into the fabric of that society and exposing the villainy that lies in the depravity so often found in our cities.  Sometimes it takes brutal efforts to defeat ruthlessness and Davis is not above using any means necessary, including enlisting the aid of an organization that can only be considered the lesser of two evils in this context, in order to win.  More than that I cannot say without spoiling where this shocking story is heading.
