Description

What happens when a couple desperately wants a baby but things don't go exactly as planned? They can always adopt, right? That overwhelming and elemental desire-to have a child- leads Tuck and Ellen Handler down a path that at first appears to be clearly marked. But the consequences they encounter quickly turn deadly. A BABY TO DIE FOR follows Tuck Handler's unyielding determination to expose the sordid side of the adoption trade- from a ruthless Network of money-driven black market baby brokers, to underground slave auctions in the Middle East. After reading Slosberg's gripping page-turner you will never again view the idealistic and hopeful process of adoption in quite the same light.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 05, 2015 – Slosberg (The Hitler Error) delivers an emotional gut punch to the reader in this thriller, set in 1972 and involving the American black market for adoption. New Yorkers Ellen and Tuck Handler are desperate to have a child after Ellen suffers two miscarriages. Their doctor has warned against any further attempts to get pregnant, since he believes they would imperil Ellen's life. The Handlers explore adoption through a reputable agency, only to be laughed at by the social worker, Harriet Flynn, for the list they've drawn up of their ideal baby's characteristics. Flynn notes that the recent Roe v. Wade decision will only lower the number of infants available, and the Handlers decide to explore the shady underworld where babies are bought and sold. The windup isn't quite as effective as the setup, but Slosberg does a good job of incorporating ethical issues into his plot. (BookLife)
