Crime fiction that makes a difference: in The Orchid Tattoo, award-winning author Carla Damron delves into the disturbing world of human trafficking.


Praise for The Orchid Tattoo

The Orchid Tattoo is a fast-paced, finely-wrought thriller that will keep you turning pages late into the night. When the sister of social worker Georgia Thayer disappears  after trying to help a runaway teen, Georgia finds herself thrust into a nefarious underworld of human trafficking unlike anything she could’ve imagined. This is an important, timely story that needed to be told, and social worker-turned-author Carla Damon is the one to tell it. 

—Cassandra King, bestselling author of Tell Me a Story: My Life with Pat Conroy

The Orchid Tattoo is a story of heartache, tenacity, and courage, and the lengths a woman will go to uncover a horrible truth and protect those she loves from a world of our nightmares.

—Yasmin Angoe, Editor’s Pick and Bestselling author of Her Name Is Knight

In The Orchid Tattoo, Carla Damron creates that rare, superpowered thriller— where a page-turning reading experience sheds important light on social justice. Georgia Thayer is a gem of a lead character— smart, sensitive, strong in her own struggles, driven to help others. I’d follow her wherever she goes next.

—Ashley Warlick, author of internationally-acclaimed The Arrangement
