I couldn't put it down, and neither will you.--John Lescoart,New York Times best-selling author of the Dismas Hardy Novels andThe Hunt Club

Off the Streetis detective Christopher Baughman’s true life story of fighting to protect a class of women who are too easily forgotten and readily dismissed. Now co-host of the MSNBC-TV seriesSlave Hunter, Chris and the Las Vegas Pandering Investigation Team (PIT) wage war against the pimps who kidnap, trick, and beat women into submission and into a life of prostitution.

What begins with an attempt to apprehend, arrest, and convict a pimp responsible for beating a woman with a baseball bat over a two-day period quickly spirals into something far more sinister. Chris shares the emotions of the victims, parents, and family members who are involved in this investigation and offers parents guidance on how to protect their daughters from these predators. Chris ventures back to his own youth, to a memory that served as the momentum for his passion for saving the people and the city he has sworn to protect.

Christopher Baughman heads up the Pandering Investigation Team (PIT) and Human Trafficking Task Force in Las Vegas, where his team has arrested and convicted several of the city’s wealthiest and most violent criminals. Their success caught the attention of investigative reporter Chris Hansen of NBC'sDateline Undercover: To Catch a Predatorand has been the subject of several episodes, as well as a segment on NBC’sAmerican Greed. Chris teaches the anatomy of pandering investigations to other departments across the nation, including members of the FBI, IRS, and federal parole and probation agencies.
