Inhaltsangabe

"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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

Absolut lesens- und hörenswert

Eine vielschichtige, spannende Geschichte, die mich absolut gefesselt hat. Beim Thema „Kampfsport“ gibt es gewisse Parallelen zu John Rain, das „Tags-Polizist-Nachts-Rächer“-Thema erinnert etwas an Dexter. Insgesamt aber eine eigenständige, sehr interessante Protagonistin. Das passende Hörbuch glänzt mit einem famosen Barry Eisler als Erzähler.

As you can imagine -

As you can imagine, extreme violence against children is a very disturbing subject. To ignore victims of violence is to betray them - but this is a work of fiction. The author does a fantastic job of narrating, and the story is engrossing.

Exzessiv

Ich mag Eisler, weil er oft über Profis schreibt und wie präzise sie arbeiten. Über Konter und Finten. Leider ist davon nur wenig in diesem Buch.

Stattdessen ist mindestens die Hälfte des Romans eine ausführliche Biografie von Kindesmissbrauch, und die Umkehrung erfolgt primär durch vorgeschobene Opferhaltung und ein technisches Gimmick - und nicht ohne unappetitliche Details.

Das habe ich nicht erwartet.
