According to the UN, the buying and selling of human flesh for the worldwide sex industry is organized crime's fastest growing business with up to 2 million people worldwide—mostly women and children—trafficked into the sex trade every year.
The Natashas is a disturbing and compelling book that details the tragic lives of those women and children. In this hard-hitting investigation, Malarek travels to wartorn countries like Kosovo and Bosnia where he exposes corruption involving United Nations peace-keepers. He unearths evidence of training centres in Serbia where teenage girls from Ukraine, Moldova and Romania are viciously indoctrinated into the world of prostitution. And he uncovers scandalous situations throughout Europe, Israel and North America where the trafficking trade continues to flourish.
Malarek exposes the people—the pimps, the politicians, the police and the predators—caught up in sex trafficking. Distressing stories of corrupt cops, complicit government officials and complacent politicians combine to form a powerful truth—one that Malarek hopes will not be ignored.
