Those who want information turn to Vanessa Michael Munroe, an African-born investigator with a gift for languages and violence. Her latest client is a Texas business tycoon whose stepdaughter disappeared while on a trip to the Dark Continent. Narrator Hillary Huber's smoky voice is perfect for Munroe: subtly sexy with an undercurrent of danger. As Munroe's investigation exposes political, economic, and personal betrayals, her resources and survival instincts are pushed to their limits. Listeners are quickly caught up in this thriller, keying into the emotional complexities of the characters. Whether Munroe is in a luxury hotel in Paris or the snake-infested jungles of Equatorial Guinea, Huber's slight accents serve as guideposts for listeners, distinguishing individuals and adding to the atmosphere.
