Best-selling author Darian North's Violation is a tightly woven, psychologically complex mystery. It is both fast-paced suspense and a heart-rending look at the long term effects of violent crime on its victims. At the age of 17 Thea Auben was raped, beaten and left for dead. Fourteen years later, she lives under an assumed name in a carefully constructed online world. Her only real relationship is with her son David. She has done everything in her power to protect David from the truth about his conception, but he is no longer satisfied by her vague answers about his father. With the help of a cyber-friend, David runs away to discover what his mother is hiding. Now, Thea is forced to confront her past in a desperate search to find David before it is too late. Ed Sala's masterful narration deftly conveys both the unending suspense and raw emotion of Darian North's powerful and deeply moving story.
