This is a must read. No ifs, ands, or buts. Brilliant, chilling, and sadly, all too true. If you love true crime, you won’t be able to resist Chris Baughman’s story. Watch his CBS interview here (friggin’ WordPress can’t embed the video). And hey, it’s #39 on Amazon’s True Crime bestseller list.

It’s not often that you get to see the person behind the book, but that’s not the case with our author Chris Baughman. He was on Las Vegas news last night when a reporter did a story on what Chris and his Pit Investigative Team are doing to cripple prostitution…they’re going after the pimps, who live amazingly opulent lives from the labors of their girls.
This isn’t a story you should walk away from – that this would never happen to you or someone you know and love. Chris reveals how insidious these pimps are. They never tell their new girlfriends what they do. It’s not until the girl makes an emotional commitment to the guy that he tells her what he expects her to do. If she doesn’t, she is often seriously beaten and threatened.
Chris has files upon files of women he has saved who were forced into slavery, all their money taken from them, and their “boyfriends” buying cars, furs, jewelery…for themselves. If the women try to leave, they are severely beaten and sometimes taken out into the desert and killed – a very public warning to other women who may try to leave.
Chris and his revolutionary team are out there fighting the good fight, saving women from beatings and death. These are your daughters, your friends, mothers, and aunts.
If there is one thing to smile at, it’s the reporter. In her dialog with the news anchor, she mentioned Chris’ book and held it up. She did a very quick flash and put it down – and didn’t mention the title. Now most people would be bummed with such an offhand move. But she had to do this because we changed the cover art and title, and she didn’t want to confuse anyone. Bless her little microphone.
Prostitution is not a victimless crime, and this report shows exactly who suffers the most. Click on the link. Watch it. And when Off the Street hits the stands in September….buy it!
