Blond Cargo is a fast paced action filled thriller that pits Jack Bertolino (former cop now a private investigator) against ruthless men in the sex trade in the hopes to free the daughter of a local mafia boss so that he can pay back the debt owed to him. Meanwhile, he is also dealing with his son who is away at college but dealing with the after effects of being hit by an car because of his dad. I believe this has to do with incidents that happened in the first novel. (This is these second Bertolino and Associates story). I have to say that I enjoyed all aspects of the story; the characters, the mafia crew, the criminal real estate developers, the Middle East sheik and even the gin drinking woman sitting on her deck. Adding Bertonlino's personal life into the mix makes all the more realistic. I have to go back to and read the first novel. Very enjoyable indeed! ( )

Blond Cargo is a riveting tale that takes the reader back into the seedy underworld of crime as they follow private investigator Jack Bertolino on his latest investigative adventure. Author John Lansing weaves a fast-paced crime thriller set in Los Angeles and written in the third person narrative, that follows the dangerous quest of retired NYPD narcotics detective now private investigator Jack Bertolino as he returns the favor from mafia boss Vincent Cardona, and investigates the case of his missing daughter Angelica, the beautiful young blond mafia princess who has been kidnapped and imprisoned by rich and politically connected men who are negotiating her value as a sex slave. Jack's investigation leads him into the seedy underworld of the sex slave trade ring, where he finds himself caught up in a dangerous and deadly world that he thought he had left behind.

This riveting realistic story is full of intrigue, action, drama, suspense, murder and dark humor that draws the reader in and keeps them captivated and turning the pages. As the reader follows Jack into the shady world of the sex slave trade, the multitude of plot twists and turns will keep them guessing what will happen next. Jack takes the reader on a wild ride when his dangerous adventure takes him into the upscale areas and seedy neighborhoods of various California locales. It is a seedy and gritty world of drugs, gangs, sex slave trade, and murder ... all in the pursuit of finding and bringing Angelica home to her father.

With a multidimensional cast of characters who leap off the pages; gritty dialogue and vivid interactions; richly detailed description of various California locales; and a no-holds-barred storyline that keeps the reader sitting on the edge of their seats holding their breath as the chilling trail of crime, sex slave trade business, and murders leads up to an explosive climax; Blond Cargo is one hell of a thrilling story that you won't be able to put down and leaves you wanting more!
