"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 a life 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"--

Az informátor : [bűnügyi regény] by Taylor Stevens( )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in Hungarian and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vérbeli thriller, mely az izgalmakat tekintve a legsikerültebb detektív- és kémregényekkkel vetekszik. A Publishers Weekly kritikusa "a tetovált lányhoz" hasonlítja Taylor Stevens lebilincselő thrillerének főhősét, és joggal. A sebzett lelkű Vanessa Michael Munroe, az információszerzésre specializálódott különleges ügynök egy olajmilliárdos eltűnt lány után nyomoz. "Vanessa Michael Munroe információszerzéssel foglalkozik, és amennyire tudom, ő ebben a legjobb. Az ember megad neki néhány adatot, egy helyszínt vagy bármit, ő pedig megoldja a problémát. Nem számít sem az, hogy milyen nyelven kell megszólnia, sem az, hogy férfiként vagy nőként kell-e megjelennie, sem a szélsőséges időjárás, vagy az, hogy éppen háborús övezetről, katonai diktatúráról van szó... megszerzi a kért információt." Vanessa a törvények nélküli Közép-Afrikában született, és épphogy csak elmúlt tizennégy éves, amikor csatlakozott egy hírhedt fegyvercsempészhez és annak zsoldosseregéhez. Az ő pártfogoltjaként aztán kivívta a dzsungel legveszélyesebb bűnözőinek tiszteletét, ám végül menekülnie kellett, és az Egyesült Államokban kezdett új életet. Legújabb megbízása azonban visszavezeti Afrikába, ahol Vanessának saját múltjával és e múlt máig kísértő szellemeivel is szembe kell néznie

Vanessa Munroe nennt sich "Michael" und geht bei ihren weltweiten Einsätzen auch als junger Mann durch, wenn es ihren Recherchen dient.

Dort sucht sie nach der Stieftochter eines amerikanischen Industriellen, die 4 Jahre zuvor auf einer Abenteuerreise spurlos verschwand. Zu ihrem Ärger muss Munroe, die gewohnt ist, alleine zu arbeiten, einen Vertrauten ihres Mandanten als Begleiter akzeptieren. Am Ziel trifft sie einen alten Bekannten wieder, der ihr bei der unlösbar scheinenden Aufgabe nicht nur wichtige Dienste leistet, sondern auch emotional sehr nahe kommt ... - " ... gespickt ... mit Spannung, bisweilen auch mit Überspannung der Heldenhaftigkeit ihrer ansonsten interessanten Hauptfigur, die sich wie James Bond aus aller Gefahr retten kann. Erfrischender Serien-Thriller-Auftakt für viele Bibliotheken" (R. Schattel, ID-A 30/12). Die Abenteuer dieser Lisbeth Salander im Quadrat liest Sprecher Thomas M. Meinhardt geschmeidig und wohlklingend - fast zu schön
