Library Journal Review

Holt's second book in his "Carnivia" trilogy (after The Abomination) accelerates the action and intensifies the violence as the original trio of U.S. Army Second Lt. Holly Boland, Capt. Kat Tapo of the Venice Carabiniere, and Daniele Barbo, programmer of Carnivia.com, begin a desperate search to find a U.S. Army major's kidnapped teenage daughter, snatched during a Venice carnival. The girl's captivity and torture are posted on the Internet and parallels with known CIA detention policy toward its prisoners. At the same time Col. Aldo Piola is investigating the skeletal remains unearthed by protestors at a construction site for a new U.S. Army military base in northern Italy. Soon it becomes apparent that these two cases share a link and that solving the mystery of the buried remains may lead to the reason behind the abduction. Verdict Recommended for fans who want to follow the continuing adventures of the main characters and those who track conspiracy theories.
