"An explosive thriller that plunges into the sewer of human smuggling...Filled with raw power, [;;Livia Lone];; may be the darkest thriller of the year."
Kirkus, Starred Review
Barry Eisler has launched every single book hes ever written right here at Keplers Books, and its time for lucky number thirteen. Eislers new standalone thriller is an incredible ride that may be his darkest and grittiest novel yet.
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 missing 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, 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.
