The Innocent (Vanessa Michael Munroe #2)The Innocent by Taylor Stevens
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.
