Filled with raw power, [Livia Lone] may be the darkest thriller of the year. Kirkus ReviewsSeattle 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."

The plot of this novel is great, but there was a lack of attention to detail that was extremely distracting. Overuse of the phrase “he panted,” the moon being out but it was pouring snow in the same scene, middle and high school kids being at recess...these are a few examples. It ruined an otherwise great novel. 3 out of 5 stars.

Super-thrilling, intense. Dark and gritty. The MC made me think of Lisbeth Salander here and there. She endured unspeakable horrors, then became a policewoman specializing in rape/abuse crimes. Off-duty, she makes certain the rapists and abusers never hurt anyone again. There is definitely a gray area to her heroism but wow, Livia is awesome. I‘ve already bought the second book!

I added the audiobook, narrated by the author, and it is fantastic!!

New bus read today. Yesterday‘s clear blue skies and 30 degree weather have turned into a super smoky sky, forest fires 😞 and what my 7 year old referred to as a blood orange and then laughed for 15 minutes. I hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday!

Loved this book. There are some parts that describe child and adult rape so be warned. But Livia is a great character and for fans of lisbeth Salander like me, you‘ll think of lisbeth more than once. In my fan fiction they‘d be working together.

2 Thai sisters are sold by their parents and shipped in a cargo container to the US. One sister wakes up as the police raid the ship, the other is nowhere to be found. A successful businessman conveniently adopts the girl and re-names her Livia, but his generosity is a front to do terrible things to his adopted child. Livia is a fighter and she will stop at nothing to not only survive but also thrive and find her sister.

Holy fuck. So, so good (but very dark.)

Barry Eisler never disappoints, a master of the page-turner who has turned out in Livia Lone a chronicle of the horrors of human trafficking. Livia Lone - her name conjures isolation- was trafficked from Thailand with her younger sister, sold by their parents in early adolescence. The depictions are brutal, the villains out of central casting. Almost no one can be trusted. A top notch tale of vigilante justice with a heartbreaking denouement.

The charger on my laptop broke this morning and my battery died. I have to wait five days for my new charger to arrive, because I needed a break from the news. Made calls, donated money, now I'm going to bury myself in books for a while. I hope you are all taking care of yourself, Littens. ❤️😘📚

TheNextBook I don't know if watching College Basketball is self care but it's given me reasons to let all the screams out that I've been holding in. 😒 3y

drbethandherkindle @TheNextBook I firmly believe college basketball is self care-I find Jay Bilas to be particularly soothing 3y
margaux.andrea My brain misread the author's name as "Live Alone". It's definitely onto something. (edited) 3y
TheNextBook @drbethandherkindle He is commentating this game right now and honestly it feels really good to finally let all this emotion out! 3y
drbethandherkindle @TheNextBook Yes! I am watching that game too and I completely agree. I think I am averaging 1 scream per turnover in this game 3y

TheNextBook I'm all Cats. This is a really good game which means it's stressing me out. Which is a huge distraction when the world is falling apart around you 😂 3y
drbethandherkindle @TheNextBook It was such a good game! Xavier is my #1 love though and they cause enough stress to distract from multiple apocalyptic scenarios 3y
TheNextBook @drbethandherkindle college basketball stresses me out but I cant stop watching!!! 3y
drbethandherkindle @TheNextBook Same, but this is my favorite time of the year! 3y

Great book. Kick ass main character. Love the fact that the main character wasn't Caucasian or male and was strong and took control of her life. I don't condone some of the things she did but I still loved the character and the book.
