"Filled with raw power, [Livia Lone] may be the darkest thriller of the year." - Kirkus Reviews
Seattle PD sex-crimes detective Livia Lone knows the monsters she hunts. Sold by her Thai parents along with her little sister, Nason; marooned in America; abused by the men who trafficked them...the only thing that kept Livia alive as a teenager was her determination to find Nason.
Livia has never stopped looking. And she copes with her failure to protect her sister by doing everything she can to put predators in prison.
Or, when that fails, by putting them in the ground.
But when a fresh lead offers new hope of finding Nason and the men who trafficked them both, Livia will have to go beyond just being a cop. Beyond even being a vigilante. She'll have to relive the horrors of the past. Take on one of the most powerful men in the US government. And uncover a conspiracy of almost unimaginable evil.
In every way, it's an unfair fight. But Livia has two advantages: her unending love for Nason -
And a lifelong lust for vengeance.
"Author Barry Eisler narrates his own work with the skill of a professional voice actor.... He never strains credulity as Livia transitions from child victim to confident woman and avenging angel for the abused. Livia's male abusers - especially her stepfather - practically hiss with vileness, like coiled snakes. When young Livia learns jujutsu and starts fighting back, listeners will share her visceral catharsis and newfound empowerment." (AudioFile)

Another great one from Eisler
I would read the book again, rather than listen
If you've read Eisler's other books, you know the well crafted, fast paced, sexy, gritty works they are
Barry is a terrific author and a great guy. What he isn't, however, is an actor. Although his performance is quite good, I'd rather see his books read by Jeff Harding, who read some of the earlier Rain books

Great book, Barry Eisler doesn't pull his punches.
