Crimes of Passion, the latest novel from author Barbara Vaka, is an intriguing blend of mystery, revenge, romance, and mayhem taking readers on a round-the-world action adventure.

Crimes of Passion explores crimes against women. Human Trafficking affects thousands of women and children every year. A large number of the workers in this multi-billion dollar shadow market are ensnared in the web of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. It is difficult to determine the actual number of women who have fallen victim to this illegal industry; the trade is highly secretive, the traffickers behind it are dangerous and the incidents under-reported. Gleaning from this unbecoming global phenomenon, author Barbara Vaka pens Crimes of Passion, a novel that gives voice to the thousands of women embroiled in a life of slavery.

The story picks up where it left off in Pretty Maids with Alex MacKay, an MI6 agent and his partner Asad al-Katib, a former trafficker, who put their lives on the line to rescue unsuspecting women who have fallen prey to human traffickers. In Crimes of Passion they face a new challenge when confronted with an underground ring of fanatical criminals profiting from the illegal practice of circumcising girls as young as two with the willing help of their mothers and relatives. Alex takes the law into his own hands vowing to save as many children as possible and to avenge the death of one of the small victims.

Crimes of Passion is a fictional story based on the truth about the exploitation of unsuspecting women by human traffickers. It also touches on the horrific practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) formally known as circumcision of women. Crimes of Passion takes the reader from the streets of London, to the deserts of Egypt, and the great forbidden kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Barbara Vaka conducted actual research to expose the true horrors of human trafficking, particularly the incidents involving groups controlled by the elusive Russian Mafia. She also explores the contradictions of a modern society that is still bound by its past and gives readers an insightful look at modern Islamic culture. Her novel is set in the Middle East and unravels into a gripping tale of crime, corruption and raw passion. The story is based on the plight of thousands of young women from all over the world who have been lured and fallen prey to slavery and the horrific practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
