WALKING DEAD provides a grimy look at the world of sex slavery and the international trafficking of underage girls. Atticus Cizkova, the hero of several of Rucka’s books, who is now living in a secluded Georgian town in the former USSR, sets out to rescue the 14-year-old girl next door, who had been kidnapped by sex traffickers. As the story unfolds in the first person, narrator Jonathan Davis does a masterful job engaging listeners in a dangerous chase from Istanbul to Dubai to Amsterdam, and finally to Las Vegas. His phrasing, pace, and intonations provide the listener with an intimate performance. Davis covers it all—gritty emotion, menacing multinational characters, and a thrilling chase—with a first-rate performance. T.J.M.
