What this book is about. 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 individuals – who’ll pay her. Now a Texas oil billionaire has hired her to find his daughter, who vanished in Africa four years earlier. Where international investigators have tried and failed, Munroe follows a cold trail far into the lawless lands of central Africa. And then things spin out of control. Pulled deep into the mystery of the missing girl, Munroe finds herself cut off from civilisation and left for dead. Her only hope of discovering the truth – and getting out of Africa alive – is to face up to the violent past that she’s fought so hard to forget.
How I felt. This book is an introduction to this marvellous character. I admire her power and amazingly kind heart. When I was reading the book I actually felt like I was in Africa, following the character through her journey. Author made every page breath of African spirit. It is very interesting to watch Monroe interact with other characters. The book is intriguing and fast paced, in every chapter there is something happening, it is hard to put it down. There are a lot of twists and turns. It is really easy and interesting to read it. I loved the ending, its well thought through and unexpected. I recommend everyone to give it a go on this great book if you love suspense and adventures.
My Rating. 10/10
