The buying and selling of human beings for the worldwide sex industry is organized crime's fastest-growing business with up to two million people globally--mostly women and children--being trafficked into the sex trade every year.

In The Natashas , leading investigate journalist Victor Malarek details the tragic lives of the women and girls ensnared in the most recent wave of this brutal trade. He unearths evidence of training centers in Serbia where teenage girls from Ukraine, Moldova and Romania are viciously indoctrinated into the world of prostitution. He travels to war-torn countries such as Kosovo and Bosnia where he exposes corruption involving United Nations peacekeepers. And he uncovers scandalous situations throughout Europe, Israel and North America where the trafficking trade continues to flourish. Shocking stories of corrupt cops, complicit government officials and complacent politicians combine to form a powerful truth--one that Malarek hopes will not be ignored.

this is a very distressing, but interesting book to read. Rather difficult because of the subject matter, it makes me angry, yet Malarek's treatment of his subject and the ladies involved is very caring.
A must read for all of us .
