The Johns: Sex for Sale and the Men Who Buy It by Malarek, Victor published by Arcade Publishing (2011) 
Each year, more than 800,000 women and children are lured, tricked, or forced into prostitution to meet an apparently insatiable demand, joining an estimated 10 million women already ensnared in the $20 billion worldwide sex trade. To date, most research on the subject has focused on the various issues that propel these women into the trade, but little has been investigated, or written, about those who trigger the demand—the “Johns.” Click on the link above to purchase your copy on Amazon.

Renting Lacy: A Story Of America's Prostituted Children (A Call to Action) 
The average age of entry into prostitution is 13 years old. Forced into a life they never chose, manipulated, abused and tortured at the hands of the pimps who control them, our countries children are sold on the streets, on the internet and at truck stops across America every night. They aren't bad kids who made bad choices. They are victims of sex trafficking. They come from our neighborhoods, our schools, our churches, and sometimes our own homes. Author Linda Smith brings to life characters based on real stories and interviews with teen survivors.
