    • Abstract:
      Summary: When a joint FBI-Seattle Police investigation of an international child pornography ring gets too close to certain powerful people, sex-crimes detective Livia Lone becomes the target of a hit that barely goes awry. The hit had been offered to John Rain, a retired specialist in "natural causes." Livia and former Marine sniper Dox assemble an ad hoc group to identify and neutralize the threat. There's Rain; Rain's estranged lover, Mossad agent Delilah; and black ops soldiers Ben Treven and Daniel Larison, along with their former commander, SpecOps legend Colonel Scot "Hort" Horton. They have a hard time forming a team... and their quest brings them closer and closer to the highest levels of the US government. -- adapted from jacket

Booklist Reviews 2018 December #2

It's hard to imagine a finer opening for a white-knuckle thriller. Seattle sex-crimes detective Livia Lone—star of her own Eisler series a few seasons ago—is on the trail of a child-torture pornography ring that may have links to high-up government officials. Forty pages in, she's attacked outside a martial-arts academy after teaching a class and begins a thrilling 14-page battle that should be a model for action sequences. Suspecting that mighty forces are being deployed against her, Livia assembles a gang of ex-military types for protection, and the effect is at first confusing as we read of Larison and Dox, Kanezaki and Treven, Horton and Carl. Then one has a sense of eavesdropping on an encounter group with automatic weapons as this crew of cutthroats and killers go on about their feelings. These folks are interesting for what they do, not what they feel, and some readers may not hang on until the fine action sequence that ends the novel. Too bad, because they never will learn what a clean dirty martini is. (It involves frozen olive juice.) Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2018 November #3

In this crackling-good thriller from bestseller Eisler (The Night Trade), Seattle PD sex crimes detective Livia Lone, assassin John Rain, and former Marine sniper Dox form a testy alliance to combat a vile conspiracy involving corrupt and toxic government agencies. When Livia survives an assassination attempt while investigating an international child pornography ring, she learns that those behind the hit may work for the FBI. Livia recruits Dox, her partner from The Night Trade, to aid and abet her. Meanwhile, Rain—who originally was offered the hit on Livia—must come out of retirement to assemble a world-class team of black ops all-stars to battle a parallel threat. Persuasive action sequences lead to the merging of the two forces midway through the story. The feisty interplay among these killer elites is as irresistible as if one combined the Justice League with the Avengers, swapping out the superhero uniforms for cutting-edge weaponry and scintillating spycraft. By the satisfying conclusion, the world has been scrubbed a bit cleaner of perfidy. This is delightfully brutal fun. Agent: Laura Rennert, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (Feb.)
