When a joint FBI-Seattle Police investigation into an international child pornography ring gets too close to powerful enemies, sex-crimes detective Livia Lone becomes the target of a hit that barely goes awry, and suspects that the FBI itself was behind it.
A fast-paced, page-turning novel of betrayal, vengeance, and depraved secrets in high places from the New York Times bestselling author of the John Rain and Livia Lone series. 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--a hit that had been offered to John Rain, a retired specialist in killings appearing to be from "natural causes." Suspecting that the FBI themselves were behind the attack, Livia reaches out to former marine sniper Dox. Together, they assemble an ad hoc team to identify and neutralize the threat: Rain; Rain's estranged lover, Mossad agent and honey-trap specialist Delilah; black op soldiers Ben Treven and Daniel Larison; and their former commander, SpecOps legend Colonel Scott "Hort" Horton. Moving from Japan to Seattle to DC to Paris, the group fights a series of interlocking conspiracies, each edging closer and closer to the highest levels of the US government. With uncertain loyalties, conflicting agendas, and smoldering romantic entanglements, this group is hardly a team. But in a match as uneven as this one, a collective of killers might be just what they need.
A search for a pair of serial rapists leads Livia Lone down the darkest and most dangerous trail of her life in a pulse-pounding thriller by New York Times bestselling author Barry Eisler. Ten years ago, the daughter of Homeland Security Investigations agent B. D. Little vanished into thin air. So did seven other girls--the crimes all bearing the same signature characteristics. Now the disappearances have begun again. And Agent Little's efforts to investigate are being blocked by forces far above his pay grade. Desperate, he turns to Seattle sex-crimes detective Livia Lone, the most obsessive hunter of predators Little knows. Livia will need that obsessiveness, and a lot more. Because the two men Little is pursuing are fearsome. Both Special Forces veterans with a dozen tours in Iraq between them. Both sadists and serial rapists. And one, the congressman scion of the vice president of the United States--a man who will use all his power to protect his son's secrets and further his own ambitions. The conspirators have all the assets and all the angles. And every reason to believe they'll evade justice, as they always have before. They don't understand that for Livia Lone, justice is only a guideline. Revenge is the rule.
Seattle PD sex-crimes detective and former human-trafficking victim Livia Lone must relive the horrors of the past when she gets a fresh lead as to the whereabouts of her little sister, Nason.
From New York Times bestselling author Barry Eisler...Livia Lone is back with a vengeance. For sex-crimes detective Livia Lone, a position with a government anti-trafficking task force is a chance to go back to Thailand to ferret out Rithisak Sorm, the trafficking kingpin behind her own childhood ordeal. But after a planned takedown in a nightclub goes violently awry, Livia discovers that she's not the only one hunting Sorm. Former Marine sniper Dox has a score to settle, too, and working together is the only way to take Sorm out. Livia and Dox couldn't be less alike. But they share a single-minded creed: the law has to serve justice. And if it doesn't, justice has to be served another way. What they don't know is that in threatening Sorm, they're also threatening a far-reaching conspiracy--one involving the highest levels of America's own intelligence apparatus. It turns out that killing Sorm just might be the easy part. The real challenge will be payback from his protectors.
A Japanese-American assassin who specializes in "natural cause" killings finds his carefully ordered world coming under siege in the wake of a government official's murder, with which he has been falsely connected, a situation that is complicated by his attraction to the victim's daugher. Reprint.

Well, let's make it short: I hope you will really enjoy the book. As an author (and thriller / spy literature addict) I was very much influenced by Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series, Lee Child's Jack Reacher, Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther, Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne, Ian Fleming's James Bond (of course!) and also the books by Mark Greaney, Olen Steinhauer, Len Deighton, John le Carré, Anthony Horowitz, Stieg Larsson, Jussi Adler-Olsen, and Volker Kutscher. Some readers have compared my writing to the styles of Tom Clancy, Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, David Baldacci, and Daniel Silva. Reviewers have commented very positively on the complexity of my characters, the realism of the scenario, the research I put into bringing alive the world of espionage, hybrid warfare, and geo-politics. I would be very happy to also hear from you here, on my Facebook page, on Bookbub, or on Goodreads. Thank you for your consideration, Joseph

The story of how Toronto became a music mecca. From Yonge Street to Yorkville to Queen West to College, the neighbourhoods that housed Toronto’s music scenes. Featuring Syrinx, Rough Trade, Martha and the Muffins, Fifth Column, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, Rheostatics, Ghetto Concept, LAL, Broken Social Scene, and more! ‘Jonny Dovercourt, a tireless force in Toronto’s music scene, offers the widest-ranging view out there on how an Anglo-Saxon backwater terrified of people going to bars on Sundays transforms itself into a multicultural metropolis that raises up more than its share of beloved artists, from indie to hip-hop to the unclassifiable. His unique approach is to zoom in on the rooms where it’s happened – the live venues that come and too frequently go – as well as on the people who’ve devoted their lives and labours to collective creativity in a city that sometimes seems like it’d rather stick to banking. For locals, fans, and urban arts denizens anywhere, the essential Any Night of the Week is full of inspiration, discoveries, and cautionary tales.’ – Carl Wilson, Slate music critic and author of Let’s Talk About Love: A Journey to the End of Taste, one of Billboard’s ‘100 Greatest Music Books of All Time’ ‘Toronto has long been one of North America’s great music cities, but hasn’t got the same credit as L.A., Memphis, Nashville, and others. This book will go a long way towards proving Toronto’s place in the music universe.’ – Alan Cross, host, the Ongoing History of New Music ‘The sweaty, thunderous exhilaration of being in a packed club, in collective thrall to a killer band, extends across generations, platforms, and genre preferences. With this essential book, Jonny has created something that's not just a time capsule, but a time machine.’ – Sarah Liss, author of Army of Lovers
