Brilliant but chilling

Andi Pauldi is a vet living in Palm Springs, California. She is trying to get her fledgling practice off the ground while waiting and hoping that her sixth and final blood test for AIDS will be HIV-Negative. She doesn't plan on getting involved in another murder case or risk her carcass playing investigator ever again. That decision changes when a little girl named Nikki, mute, pathetic looking, and in emotional pain, comes into her office to have her pit bull Buck taken care of. Andi takes an instant dislike to the girl's redneck father, but the pleading in the little girl's eyes convinces Andi to take care of the savagely injured dog. Andi suspects the dog was hurt in an illegal dog fight. ........ Through a local politician's donation, Andi is able to give Buck the best of care but a shock awaits her when, a few week's later, she delivers a now healthy Buck back to his owners. Nikki is gone, with no trace of her existence in her dump of her house. Andi locates the girl's father, shot to death on the living room floor. Nobody seems to care about the missing child but Andi. She heads down a dangerous and deadly road filled with illegal dog fights, a child pornography ring, and pedophiles plying their trade with impunity. Vowing to do whatever is necessary to find Nikki and put the monsters responsible for her abduction away, Andi enters the world of the double agent, where one wrong move could be her last. ....... Lillian Roberts has written a graphic and revealing novel that takes the reader into the world of vices that people practice, ranging from dog fighting, pedophilia, and to sexual child abuse. It is not a work for the faint of heart but it is a astute depiction into the dark side of human nature brilliantly interwoven into a mystery that is both intriguing and cleverly designed. THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU is not a pretty work but it is a work that will haunt the readers long after the book is finished. The female protagonist symbolizes the goodness in humanity, as evidenced by her willingness to die in her fight against the forces that could torture innocent animals and children for money. This book comes highly recommend, but is not for everyone. ......Harriet Klausner
