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.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Sandi | 2/15/2014

    " Not a bad globe trotting, super heroine type thriller when the narrative focused on the current day plot (though the twists and turns were pretty predictable) but really bogged down with all the lead character's tortured past sections. This is another Anthony Award nominee for best first novel and I listened to the audio version read by Hilary Huber who was fine. "

    " This was just up and down for me. It grabbed me at first, but then I got bogged down. I just did not buy the main character's background. All the comparisons to Lisbeth Salander just made it worse for me. Got caught back up in the story but then felt like the book had a weak ending. "

    " Good story but a bit long. I am glad I did the book on Audible and listened to it. I would not have liked actually reading it. Way to much narrative that distracted from the story. All in all a good listen though. "
