Currents of Sin by Arleen Alleman is the story of a woman named Darcy, who is out to fight for the people who have no voice, but when the danger comes too near her and her loved ones, she has to end the violence that is plaguing their lives. Darcy used to be a pharmaceutical manager, but now she is a married woman who has a daughter, and is an investigative reporter. She finds out that teenagers are being kidnapped and are becoming victims of human trafficking. In her search to find answers, she comes across two prostitutes whom she offers to help, but they reject it.
Suddenly, their pimp turns up dead and now the girls are working for a far more dangerous man. Darcy thought she would be helping the girls and finding the lost teenagers, but her research brings her into the radar of a dangerous gang and a man from her past she would not like to meet. Now that she has started, she is not going to stop, even if it means that her life would be at risk. However, when someone targets her friend, she knows that the only way to end this is by doubling her efforts to end this human trafficking. But will she get the chance to do so?
What can I say? This novel, the story line and the characters really impressed me. This was my first time reading an Arleen Alleman novel and to say that I’m in love with it would be an understatement. I thoroughly enjoyed how Arleen Alleman built the pace and the suspense and kept it alive until the very end. I really enjoyed Sid and Darcy’s friendship and the relationship between Darcy and Mick. There was a lot happening and everything made proper sense. It didn’t feel rushed and everything developed beautifully. This novel deserves these five stars and many more. Very enjoyable!
