With a protagonist identified by publishing-world insiders as "a cross between Jason Bourne and Lisbeth Salander," THE INFORMATIONIST promises to stimulate and entertain. Readers will not believe that this--the first of a proposed trilogy--is Taylor Stevens's first novel, for the plot zooms along as if driven by an experienced road warrior. Vanessa Munroe simply wants to bury the hatchet of her troubled past, but instead a lucrative case tracking down the daughter of an oil tycoon leads her into a dangerous web in which her own childhood trauma butts heads with international plots fueled by greed and corruption.


"Stevens's blazingly brilliant debut introduces a great new action heroine, Vanessa Michael Munroe, who doesn't have to kick over a hornet's nest to get attention, though her feral, take-no-prisoners attitude reflects the fire of Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander." (starred review) 01/03/2011

"[T]he writing is stellar, the heroine grittier than Lara Croft and the African setting so vivid that readers can smell the jungle and feel the heat--a gifted debut with much promise." 01/01/2011

"The action is nonstop and sickeningly realistic, the setting unusual and detailed, the heroine both hard and vulnerable and the ending a big surprise -- do not miss this book." (starred review) - Page Traynor 03/01/2011

"[T]he story packs an adrenaline-filled punch." - Hallie Ephron 04/17/2011
