Review: Citizen Out by Marie Crist

Goodreads: A man patiently watches a group of young girls walk home from school, waiting for the perfect moment to take the one child he has designated as his next victim.

However, what this predator does not know is that he, too, is being stalked. There is someone in the shadows - a trained Citizen - who is ready to make sure that the child under his assigned protection is never harmed.

One pedophile, one abuser, one killer at a time; this Citizen and others like him will take a stand against those who prey on the weak and the innocent.

Kritters Thoughts: A hard subject to read, but one that we all need to think about because it is a form of slavery that still exists in our society - human trafficing. I have watched tv specials and read news stories, but nothing took it home like this book. Not for the faint of heart, this book and subject matter happens every day in many different forms.

The book jumps back in forth between life at the company - ARC, different Citizens hunting Marks, and then the surveillance of one Mark that has been on the hitlist for awhile. I enjoyed the different stories going on at once. The dark and gritty of surveillance and the on the field of the job contrasted completely with the happiness that occurred at the company headquarters. At times, it was hard to hear how nice the on the job was because you knew what their real jobs were.

I definitely enjoyed this one and felt as though it wasn't too hard to read because there were only a few instances where you were reading about being out in the field, most of the book took place at corporate headquarters. I would recommend this book to those who don't mind a little controversy and want a read that may challenge your morals and view points on some tender social issues.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Pages: 228

  1. I don't know if I could read this one given the subject matter. It does, however, sound well-executed.
