Author Barry Eisler narrates his own work with the skill of a professional voice actor. Years ago in Thailand, 13-year-old Livia and her younger sister, Nason, were sold to sex traffickers and shipped overseas. Livia was rescued and raised by the Lones, a prominent American family, but she never saw her sister again. Now she's a cop with the Seattle Sex Crimes Unit and remains determined to find Nason. Eisler's vocal range is exceptional. 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. A.T.N.
