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.

Very thrilling book, from beginning to end. Eisler does a great job with character descriptions and keeping one on the edge of your seat.

This is a dark, intense thriller with many scenes of graphic sex & violence. But it’s also an absorbing story with a compelling cast. Seems like the start of series and I would read more. I found it comparable to Ava Lee series by Ian Hamilton.

An unusual and interesting premise: Trafficking victim turned vengeful dragon.

The narrative voice is simplistic. Livia’s characterization, hard to swallow. We are to believe this fierce girl is a polymath, but her long quest to find her sister is pretty formulaic. Her English gets better; she brings home As; she stars in college.

But when Livia gets really, really mad at bad guys, there’s a bit of kinky eroticism. And the details about martial arts and phone surveillance are addictive in a violent sort of way.

At the book’s end, Barry Eisler provides notes and links which offer readers additional insights into fancy fighting knives, jiujitsu moves, and sobering cases involving human trafficking.

In so many ways, this is not an easy read, but the plot is undeniably compelling: Who doesn’t want to root against sleazy traffickers and pedophiles?
