Livia Lone is about a woman, Livia Lone, who was sold into human trafficking as a child with her sister. Years later, Livia now works as a sex crimes detective, where she gets a fresh lead on finding her sister and the men who trafficked them as children.
This books is not for the faint hearted. Nothing is sugar-coated. It’s very dark and deals with heavy topics, like human-trafficking. Human-trafficking can be very uncomfortable to read about because it’s such a horrific thing, but what makes it so much worse is that it happens every day around the world. Some people may easily feel uncomfortable when reading this book, but it’s such a great book!
Livia, the main character, was so awesome! She’s determined, fearless, powerful—basically a hardcore badass. I loved that she was protective of her sister and that she’s such a strong character. I feel like you can’t not like her.
Honestly, I went through so many different emotions at once while reading this, but I think that is one of the things that kept me reading. From page one, the story emotionally hooked me and I couldn’t stop reading.
Overall, this is a great fast-paced thriller that will take you on a ride. It has everything you could want in a great thriller—a badass main character, an emotional and suspenseful plot, lots of high stakes, gritty murders and well-written action scenes.
If you love gritty thrillers, then definitely give this book a try.
“An absolutely first-rate thriller.” —New York Times Books Review
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.
