The Honey Trap

A novel by

Twentysomething Pru seems like a girl on the straight and narrow. She takes in stray and abused animals and is studying to be a veterinarian. But college is so expensive these days so she has to work her way using her talents as a conwoman. Fleecing dirty old men, using the dark web and a variation on that old swindle, the Honey Trap.

Luring the potential pedophiles online with her youthful look, she meets and drugs them, taking their valuables and selling them on the Los Angeles black market. It's a living, buys kibble, and pays tuition. Besides, she figures this is what the bastards get for trying to have sex with underage girls. Right? Right.

But then one of the suckers turns out to be a fellow predator, of the most heinous kind.

During the ill-fated encounter, a serial killer turns the tables on Pru and nearly adds her to his collection of young female victims, tortured and then killed. She is barely able to escape. But this deadly experience is not over. The killer, now that he has met her, is a fan. Somehow he sees Pru as a fellow traveler and wants her to witness his next murderous plan, step by step.

Pru tries to evade the twisted courtship, but when she refuses, the killer takes the game to her doorstep—with deadly results. Pru now has to take down this cold-blooded enemy on her own. Using every trick she has learned on the mean streets she goes after him. At the same time she is forced to dredge up a host of dark, long-buried secrets of her own.
