Abstract:

Based on police case-files, this is a character-driven drama that tells the story of Nadya, a Ukrainian prostitute and single mother smuggled into Los Angeles. Nadya attempts to free herself from the snares of both the Russian Mafia and the Los Angeles Police Department after she's arrested in a sting operation. The mystery of Nadya's disappearance unfolds Rashomon-style, as the story is retold from four different perspectives: first, that of Nadya's African-American neighbor; then through the eyes of Rocky, Nadya's Native-American client, a family man from El Monte, grappling with an identity crisis; Crowell, a crusty vice detective with literary aspirations; and finally, Vera, the Russian woman running the prostitution ring, who is both protector and monster. It's an unflinching look at slavery in its many forms.--From publisher description.
