Storyline

Susan and her family have moved to India for her husband's posting whilst Alice, though acquitted of murder, finds work impossible to obtain. Also unemployed Millie runs a nice line in selling black market goods but is abducted and her flat ransacked - though she has hidden wads of her cash in her cooker. Alice, Jean and Lucy look for Millie's business associate Jasper but he has vanished and they surmise that he has fled after cheating his bosses. The women learn that these are the Maltese Magros family, headed by the formidable Marta and they are looking for money appropriated by Jasper. Marta lets Millie go on condition she turns a hefty profit for her but the other women want Millie to turn her back on the whole affair. Millie however is concerned that the Magros are bringing in young Czech girls as sex slaves and wants to stop them. Then they find that Jasper has been murdered. Written by don @ minifie-1

Blackest of Black Markets
14 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Millie gets in way over her head as she works the black market with a slimy guy. She is rolling along, thinking everything is fine, until the big boys (who appear to be Russian or Slavic) kidnap her and bring her to their headquarters. There, she is threatened and held in fear of her life. She also becomes aware that these guys are involved in sex trafficking. They have a stable of girls whom they prostitute. Millie is made to make a deal to work for these horrors. She convinces them she can bring in more money on the black market. The scene ends with a horrible discovery in a sort of ersatz warehouse.
