In Steven’s debut novel, Vanessa Munroe is an informationist , with an uncanny knack for languages, the ability to fit into any environment and a tortured past. Her current high paying client is the father of Emily Burbank, who disappeared in Africa 4 years ago. The last man to see her is now insane. This is a fast moving, suspenseful book, and Vanessa is a great action heroine. Think Laura Croft with the ability to speak 22 languages. I will definitely read the sequel that’s sure to follow.
