Today's BOOK OF THE DAY is so much on point with what is happening across the globe with child sex trafficking. The book "Predator in the House," by Joanne Parsons nails this as she weaves her characters in and out of sordid situations. This book isn't glorifying sex trafficking, in fact, it is the opposite as she hopes to raise the awareness of the public to this crime. Parsons has also declared that she will be donating the first $1,000 or proceeds to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. 

Predator in the House Kindle Edition

Dr. Mel's Review

"Predator in the House is dynamic and compelling. It grabs you from the first word and doesn’t let you go until the very end."

Joanne Parsons is fulfilling a commitment she made to herself during her career in healthcare. “I wrote Predator in the House as an entertaining and intriguing crime novel to raise awareness of child sex trafficking.” She is standing behind her commitment, and is donating the first one-thousand dollars in pre-order sales proceeds to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Parsons began writing after being widowed and retiring. She is author of two historical fiction novels, award-winning, Kitchen Canary, and its sequel Through the Open Door.

Predator in the House is not a grim story of a trafficked child.” Parsons balanced the dark subject of child sex trafficking with humor. “It’s a fast-moving cat and mouse game between a dysfunctional married couple. Karl Shea is searching for a missing child, his wife, Shirley, murders for the thrill. Their shared motivation to kill sex offenders is their only bond and ties them together until the very end.”

Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review, recently previewed the novel. “Readers who like a good investigative piece accompanied by broader social and ethical issues will find Predator in the House a provocative novel about sex offenders under close inspection, children who vanish into a sordid world, and how a couple's fixation on ‘the kill’ changes their lives and values.”

The eBook edition of Predator in the House is available on Amazon at the pre-order price of $.99 until September 7, 2020. Each purchase will contribute to a donation to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
