(Vanessa Munroe: Book 3)
Vanessa Michael Munroe – fearless heroine of the New York Times bestseller The Informationist – returns in a third gripping thriller for fans of Lisbeth Salander, Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne.
Information specialist Vanessa ‘Michael’ Munroe has a global reputation for getting things done, often dangerous and violent things.
But her reputation has brought her dangerous enemies.
On a busy Dallas street, Munroe is kidnapped by an unseen opponent and thrust into an underground world where women and girls are merchandise and a shadowy figure known as The Doll Maker controls her every move.
Now everything pivots on one simple choice: Munroe must use her unique set of skills to deliver a high-profile young woman into the same nightmare that she once endured, or condemn to torture and certain death the one person she loves above all else.
“Munroe is a sensational character and Stevens is a sensational writer”
“The world may have found its next Lisbeth Salander ”
“One of the best thrillers of the year!”
“Lean and mean thriller featuring Vanessa Michael Munroe … owes much to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. But Stevens stamps the novel with her own bleak, punishing, bullet-flying outlook …Out of that gloomy intensity comes edgy suspense.”
“A globe-trotting thriller. . . . The Informationist is an accessible, crisply told tale”
“Stevens’s blazingly brilliant debut introduces a great new action heroine, Vanessa Michael Munroe, who doesn’t have to kick over a hornet’s nest to get attention, though her feral, take-no-prisoners attitude reflects the fire of Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander….Thriller fans will eagerly await the sequel to this high-octane page-turner.”
“With exotic locations, a twisty plot and pleny of violent action it's a fresh and punchy thriller”
“Written with the muscular force of Lee Child and the political insight of Frederick Forsythe. No wonder Terminator director James Cameron has snapped up film rights”
