BOOK REVIEW: BODY TRAFFIC
Sonja Sepsik is smuggled out of the Ukraine with the help of her brother Fjodor. He had left the Ukraine in 1988 to seek a new life in Hungary. As Sonja heard the rear door open, she called out her brother's name. He responded by informing her that his name is now Ferenc Sebes. He told her it was a good Hungarian name and they were now in Hungary.
Stan Boyko worked as an undercover officer. Stan thought life would be a lot simpler in Winnipeg than it had been when he worked the waterfront in Vancouver. From now on he would be a Ukrainian Seaman who had jumped ship in Halifax and was now working his way west.
Stan was informed that his new goal would be to infiltrate the local crime ring that operates in concert with the Ukrainian mafia out of Europe. Stan's mother was French and his father was Ukraine. As a result, he was familiar with both languages. Winnipeg had a huge Ukrainian community.
Sonja found that Hungary was not the paradise she expected it to be. One day while she was out for a walk in a nearby park, she spotted her brother with a man near some trees. The man handed her brother a package in exchange for a wad of money. Her brother became annoyed when Sonja saw what had happened and told her that his boss paid him to bring her to Hungary. He also informed Sonja that the boss did not pay for her trip out of the goodness of his heart. Sonja was sold to a prostitution ring in Winnipeg.
After a chance meeting between Sonja and Stan, it happened to give him a direct pipeline into the illegal activities that were taking place. However there is a lot going on behind the scenes and a murder occurs.
After the murder is committed Sonja and Stan find themselves in a world of corruption. What happens to Sonja?
This novel is an intriguing book to read. The authors do a very smooth job of weaving the two stories of Stan and Sonja together. The reader is in for a treat as they are taken on a wild journey between the two lives of Sonja and Stan. The book is fast paced and one that you will thoroughly enjoy. It is highly recommended.
