From New York Times bestselling author Barry Eisler...Livia Lone is back. For sex-crimes detective Livia Lone, a position with a government anti-trafficking task force is a chance to return to Thailand to ferret out Rithisak Sorm, the 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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barry Eisler.

Williams wrote: ´´This is a play about love in its purest terms.´´ It is also Williams´s robust and persuasive plea for endurance and resistance in the face of human suffering. The earthy widow Maxine Faulk is proprietress of a rundown hotel at the edge of a Mexican cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean where the defrocked Rev. Shannon, his tour group of ladies from a West Texas women´s college, the self-described New England spinster Hannah Jelkes and her ninety-seven-year-old grandfather, Jonathan Coffin (´´the world´s oldest living and practicing poet´´), a family of grotesque Nazi vacationers, and an iguana tied by its throat to the veranda, all find themselves assembled for a rainy and turbulent night. This is the first trade paperback edition of The Night of the Iguana and comes with an Introduction by award-winning playwright Doug Wright, the author´s original Foreword, the short story ´´The Night of the Iguana´´ which was the germ for the play, plus an essay by noted Tennessee Williams scholar, Kenneth Holditch. ´´I´m tired of conducting services in praise and worship of a senile delinquent-yeah, that´s what I said, I shouted! All your Western theologies, the whole mythology of them, are based on the concept of God as a senile delinquent and, by God, I will not and cannot continue to conduct services in praise and worship of this...this...this angry, petulant old man.´´ -The Rev. T. Lawrence Shannon, from The Night of the Iguana
