Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information - expensive information - working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now. A Texas oil billionaire has hired her to find his daughter who vanished in Africa four years ago. It’s not her usual line of work, but she can’t resist the challenge. Pulled deep into the mystery of the missing girl, Munroe finds herself back in the lands of her childhood, betrayed, cut off from civilization, and left for dead. If she has any hope of escaping the jungle and the demons that drive her, she must come face-to-face with the past that she’s tried for so long to forget. Gripping, ingenious, and impeccably paced, The Informationist marks the arrival or a thrilling new talent.
Awesome debut for a wonderful new thriller writer
This is a fantastic thriller by any measure, but I'm even more impressed given that this is Stevens's debut novel. Looking forward to the next in the series. The reader is good too--she manages to be interesting and expressive without overdoing it.
I never write review but I had to because I was pleasantly surprised. Good listening. The narrator takes a little use to but in the end is effective in adding to the characters personalities.
Looking forward to the next book
Loved the book and narrator. Very much looking forward to the next book!!
