Viebury Grove (Method 15/33 series: #2) is the latest from international bestselling author, Shannon Kirk. Fans will be left breathless, as they follow protagonist Lisa Yyland into some of the darkest places on Earth in order to take down a global human trafficking cabal known only as “The Center Ring.”
Recent headlines focusing on the famous and infamous—CEO’s, royalty, politicians—being accused of taking part in decades’ long human trafficking, lend to this novel’s fictionalized focus on a small, but powerful, global human trafficking cabal referred to as The Center Ring, which sells “sexual experiences.” It is the Center Ring that Lisa Yyland has been planning to take down for eighteen years; planning every day since her release from confinement, as she discovered the group was, indeed, connected to her kidnapping at age sixteen. What does eighteen years of planning and collecting assets to catch these horrific people in the act look like? Will her plan work? Will she get revenge? Law enforcements’ good intentions, due process, and procedures seem to fail when put up against the powerful elite in these age-old sick enterprises. Does Lisa’s brand of vigilante justice stand a better chance?
—BOLO Books on Gretchen “If Misery and Sharp Objects and Dolores Claiborne all banged into each other, rolled around on a dangerous cliff and fell into the raging Atlantic Ocean together, a mermaid would rise up from the depths raising this beautiful book to the heavens...All hail to the new dark goddess of fiction. (sorry Gillian Flynn, sorry Stephen King!).” —@Books_Be_Jeweled on In the Vines “Deft...refreshing...Shannon Kirk...is a writer to watch.” —Stylist listing Method 15/33 as one of the 8 best thrillers to bring to the beach “Method 15/33 is a riveting debut novel...Readers will see parallels between [the main character] and Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, both victims who refuse to be victimized...The question is how [she will survive], and watching the answer unfold is like watching a wondrously complicated, well-oiled Rube Goldberg contraption in action. Welcome to a thrilling new voice in crime fiction.” —The Boston Globe
