With The Innocent, Taylor Stevens, the bestselling author of The Informationist, returns with another blockbuster thriller featuring the fearless Vanessa Michael Munroe. 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 lives 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.

It's basically drug probl...
Michael Monroe's best friend and most trusted ally, Logan needs help -- he was raised by a cult as were most of his close friends, and despite being free of them for all of his adult life, he's not been able to truly put The Chosen behind him. His friend, Charity, is possibly the only one closer to ...
You need to read the first book in this series The Informationist as it sets up who Michael is and her past, which is basically what caused her to be the character that she is. I also really enjoyed this book (one of the best debuts I have ever read), and I think a must read for those who are lookin...
I will admit, I would probably have enjoyed the *book* more than the audio book. The narrator was a little monotone and drab, in my opinion.
I must say that I liked this book slightly better than the author's first book. What is starting to fear me though is that I am also starting to see hints of formulaic writing in her works and that is never a good sign.
