Jaycee Wilder thrives on the 'Big Story' and when she successfully weasels her way into the middle of breaking news, she is at the height of her game. Best known as the news anchor at her LA news station, investigative reporting is the adrenaline that fuels her creative fire. When news breaks about a twisted rash of Throw Away Girl murders, Jaycee is first in line to vie for the exclusive. Along with Ben, her trusty and extremely loyal photographer, Jaycee goes above and beyond standard job requirements to crack the case.

The public knows of two murders, but Jaycee is informed of another young woman having been attacked. Although all crime scenes are located within the immediate vicinity of girlie clubs of extreme sport variety, none of the victims fit stereotypical clientele expectations of such establishments. A single mother, a school teacher, and a student - all involved in the lurid world of dominatrix behavior. Jaycee is determined to clear their names and rid the city of the monster who takes lives for sport. Will she succeed or will she be next?

Throw Away Girls by Jennifer Vaughn is told in much the same vein as a James Patterson novel. Vaughn’s descriptive passages leave little to the imagination, allowing a banquet of vivid imagery that is certain to elicit nightmares. I appreciated the careful thought given to precise sentence structure and appropriate vocabulary. Throw Away Girls is certain to make the best seller list of summer reads. This is a SUPERB thriller. Good stuff! I hope there will be a sequel.
