Synopsis

I couldn't put it down, and neither will you.—John Lescoart, New York Times best-selling author of the Dismas Hardy Novels and The Hunt Club

Off the Street is detective Christopher Baughman’s true life story of fighting to protect a class of women who are too easily forgotten and readily dismissed. Chris and the Las Vegas Pandering Investigation Team (PIT) wage war against the pimps who kidnap, trick, and beat women into submission and into a life of prostitution.

What begins with an attempt to apprehend, arrest, and convict a pimp responsible for beating a woman with a baseball bat over a two-day period quickly spirals into something far more sinister. Chris shares the emotions of the victims, parents, and family members who are involved in this investigation and offers parents guidance on how to protect their daughters from these predators. Chris ventures back to his own youth, to a memory that served as the momentum for his passion for saving the people and the city he has sworn to protect.
