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.

"To find her abducted son, rape victim Thea Aubin must uncover the truth about the horrific crime she can't bear to remember. North explores both the real-world and the inner battles of a woman, a man, and a maturing boy. The book is both a fast-paced mystery and a multilevel human drama about regaining the capacity for trust. Ed Sala not only delivers all of this, but also makes the reader care about the characters. Some narrators grab your attention with a sonorous voice and intimate tone but never manage to capture the sense and feeling of a book. Ed Sala captures every nuance from page one, and his gritty voice "grows on you." K.C. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
