It’s a new beginning for bodyguard Atticus Kodiak. Dead to the world, no longer hunted, he has lived with his common-law wife Alena for more than a year in a small town in the Republic of Georgia. But when their new neighbors are brutally murdered, leaving behind their son, it falls to Atticus to rescue him. To do so, he must enter a web that takes him from Russia to Istanbul and that stretches from Dubai to Las Vegas. But what troubles Atticus the most is that Alena—once one of the world’s most dangerous assassins and a woman who fears nothing—is clearly terrified of what he’s uncovered. And as Atticus gets closer to learning why, the closer he gets to destroying the life they have made, and each other. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/19/2014

    " Rucka does his research, and that's one of the things that gives his Atticus Kodiak books such appeal for me. Whether he's explaining how ricochet trajectories work (bullets behave weirdly) or, as in this book, detailing the horrors of the current trade in human beings (often for sex, but other kinds of slavery as well), he delivers the data with a swift authority that never yitches up the telling of his story. Which is to say: He's good and underappreciated. Clearly not everyone's cup of tea, but if you like this sort of thing, Rucka is aces. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joey Cruz | 2/16/2014

    " The (supposed) final book in the Kodiak series. I wont spoil anything, but suffice it to say the story itself is strong enough to overcome the fact that it doesn't bring much new to the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami Habel | 12/31/2013

    " Loved it ....the story is fiction but true and sad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 12/24/2013

    " So nice to catch up with Atticus and Alena again. Even if I do read Mr. Rucka's books too fast. I tried to slow this one down between quilting and knitting, but it was difficult! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 keri. | 12/19/2013

    " okay, NOW Atticus Kodiak and I are done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 12/8/2013

    " I have to say that this was a page turner -- a difficult subject, but Rucka kept compelling me to read 'just one more chapter.' "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patti | 3/29/2013

    " Good book and a great author. I discovered Greg Rucka three years ago and have enjoyed every book he has written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sigrid Ellis | 3/12/2013

    " As usual, I love Rucka's work. All of his characters are three-dimensional, his plots unwind like a watchspring, and the details are amazing. I love this guy's stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jorge Chapa | 3/9/2013

    " A great read for a lazy weekend. I can't believe these haven't been turned into a film yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thacher Cleveland | 9/24/2012

    " Probably the best of the "Post Bodyguard" era Atticus Kodiak, and unlike the last one, it actually has characters from the earlier portions of the series (y'know, those that are still alive). Lots of cool action, great writing and a subject matter that keeps things tense and horrifying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 10/22/2011

    " A fine update to the Atticus Kodiak series, but the human trafficking story is grim. Not for the faint of heart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 9/9/2011

    " An excellent end to my favorite series. If you haven't read the Atticus Kodiak books you're missing out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc Mason | 6/5/2011

    " Excellent tale of one man's journey to save a young girl from sex trafficking. One of Rucka's best efforts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 2/8/2011

    " An easy summer read. Simple characters, straight-forward plot, enough action and suspense to keep the pages turning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 5/11/2010

    " One of the better Atticus Kodiak novels. The pacing of this one seemed perfect and that action and setbacks worked well. Be warned though, the plot of the book, while well done, is a harsh subject.

    Still if you've liked any of Rucka's previous work, then this should be read. "
