Description - The Informationist by Taylor Stevens

Vanessa Munroe deals in information - covert information. With an extraordinary intellect, a physique that allows her to pass as either male or female, and ruthless martial arts skills, she offers a unique service to anyone - government or individual - who'll pay her. Now Texas oil billionaire Richard Burbank has hired her to find his daughter Emily, who vanished in Africa four years earlier. Where international investigators and local mercenaries have tried and failed, Munroe dredges a cold trail across three continents, deep into the lawless lands of Central Africa. And there things spin out of control. Pulled deep into the mystery of the missing girl, she finds herself cut off from civilization and left for dead. Her only hope of discovering what happened to Emily - and of getting out of Africa alive - is to face up to the violent past that she's tried for so long to forget.

Book Review: The Informationist by Taylor Stevens - Reviewed by (09 Nov 2011)

The Informationist, the debut novel of author Taylor Stevens, introduces us to Vanessa Munroe. Known as 'Michael' in her professional capacity, or 'Essa' to those closest to her, she is fearless, intelligent, driven and constantly fighting to overcome her traumatic childhood experiences.

Michael's job is to obtain information for whoever wants to pay for it. She speaks 22 languages, can kill with her bare hands and uses her androgynous physique in order to obtain what she needs to get the job done.

Her assignment is to locate the missing daughter of oil billionaire Richard Burbank. Emily has been missing for four years after travelling through Africa with two male companions. Michael is his last hope after countless attempts by authorities and mercenaries to locate her have failed.

The readers are taken through the corrupt, lawless, harsh and hostile country of Central Africa. We encounter friends and foes from her past, helpful and friendly locals and law enforcement in every form. Luckily Michael grew up in this environment, so is familiar with the law, territory, customs and politics. But be prepared for twists, turns and unexpected surprises at every page.

This is an incredible story. It is thoroughly researched, engaging, chilling at times, violent at others and the reader gets glimpses behind the tough exterior to the real Vanessa. Taylor Stevens is currently working on her second novel, which will also feature Vanessa Munroe. I eagerly await her next assignment.
