Author and Las Vegas Pandering Investigative Team ( PIT) Detective Christopher Baughman writes about the case against a pimp named Anthony Smith, vividly brought to life in Off the Street, which led to the PIT unit’s creation in 2009. Less than a year later, Baughman’s team had arrested and convicted several of the wealthiest and most violent criminals in the city, propelling the team into the national spotlight with several segments on “Dateline NBC.” The team also served as consultants for an episode of the CBS drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
Baughman and the PIT team draw cooperation from city, state and federal law enforcement offices, cracking down on those who abuse women and force them to lead a life of prostitution. His painstaking investigations for the vice unit have even resulted in the arrest of his own former high school classmates.

How to make an editor happy….
How to make an editor giddy and silly-like…
After being in stock for only three days...
And what’s fun is B&N ordered 250 units.

Hearing Barnes and Noble ASK, “May we make a display of your author’s books, and oh, may we also start selling them early because we have such a big demand?”
What…are these trick questions? Go Chris, Go Off the Street!

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!
