My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Vanessa Michael Munroe is one of my favorite characters. In The Informationist, she is hired to find a missing daughter. In this book, she's again hired to find and extract a daughter, this time a young girl being hidden by The Chosen, a religious cult operating in Buenos Aires.
Again, she teams up with Miles Bradford and with her friend Logan and two others, travels to South America and infiltrates the cult.
I love the complexity of this character. She grew up with missionaries but ended up living on her own, teaming up with some mercenaries. There, she was trained to be a fighter, and she learned well. She was also tortured on a regular basis by one of the men there - and who she eventually killed. All this creates a fascinating character with unique skills.
