The Innocent

Book 3, Vanessa Michael Munroe

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


With The Innocent, Taylor Stevens, the bestselling author of The Informationist, returns with another blockbuster thriller featuring the fearless Vanessa Michael Munroe.
Eight years ago, a man walked five-year-old Hannah out the front doors of her school and spirited her over the Mexican border, taking her into the world of a cult known as The Chosen. For eight years, followers of The Prophet have hidden the child, moving her from country to country, shielding the man who stole her. Now, those who’ve searched the longest know where to find her. They are childhood survivors of The Chosen, thirty-somethings born and raised inside the cult who’ve managed to make lives for themselves on the outside. They understand the mindset, the culture within that world, and turn to Vanessa Michael Munroe for help, knowing that the only possibility of stealing Hannah back and getting her safely out of Argentina is to trust someone who doesn’t trust them, and get Munroe on the inside.
Tautly written, brilliantly paced, and with the same evocation of the exotic combined with chilling violence that made The Informationist such a success, The Innocent confirms Taylor Stevens’ reputation as a thriller writer of the first rank.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 24, 2011 – In Stevens s impressive second Vanessa Michael Munroe novel (after 2010 s The Informationist), Vanessa travels to Buenos Aires in search of a 14-year-old girl, Hannah, who was kidnapped eight years earlier by her mother s boyfriend and hidden among a religious cult known as the Chosen. Aided by security expert Miles Bradford, Vanessa frees Hannah after infiltrating the compound where the girl was being held, setting off a volatile chain of complications. The gripping plot runs on adrenaline as much as does Vanessa, who unleashes her violent tendencies when the powerless are threatened. The neglected daughter of American missionaries, Vanessa knows too well the mind control a closed society exerts over its members. Her career as an informationist, specializing in ferreting out top secrets for corporations and the ber-wealthy, has evolved into her role as accidental assassin. Haunted by her kills, she can t stop meting out her brand of justice. The complicated Vanessa makes for an intriguing heroine at once tough, fearless, vulnerable, and compassionate.

Customer Reviews

The Innocent...

Great story and character. Taylor Stevens is a very enjoyable author. I see people try to compare this character to the Girl trilogy. There is no comparison. They are very different characters. However, same type of feel with intrigue and confident heroine. It is not fair to Taylor Stevens to be compared to Stieg Larsson. Start with the first book of this series; The Informationist. I think you will enjoy!

She did it again!

Taylor Stevens delivered another gripping page turner! I loved every second of this book and could not put it down! I cannot wait for the next book in the series!

The Girl With No Tattoo

Steig Larson has a literary heir. Taylor Stevens has created a character and a story that matches, no, excels Lisbeth Salander. This author, more than any other living author, deserves to be on the best selling list. I vow to read every word she English.
