    Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information - expensive information - working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now....

    I love thrillers! Most are somewhat predictable but that's okay; they're still entertaining and worth the time spent. Every now and then one comes along that is very different, and that's what was so great about "The Informationist". Besides a great plot, it was fascinating to read about Africa in such detail. I just loved the book and couldn't put it down. Kudos to Taylor Stevens on her first novel! I'm looking forward to future books about Vanessa. And more Africa, please.

    No one but Stephen King could tell this story about the darkness at the heart of the unknown and our compulsion to investigate the unexplained. With echoes of Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon and the work of Graham Greene, one of the world's great storytellers presents a surprising tale that explores the nature of mystery itself.

    What disappointed you about The Colorado Kid?

    It's a nice little story, but it doesn't really classify as "Hard Case Crime". It was slow and there's no closure.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Where does 11-22-63 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was excellent! I haven't read Stephen King in a while, although I've always been a fan. He just gets so wordy and goes on and on and on at times. Well, I didn't feel that way about this book at all. I was 9 years old when JFK was killed, and it had a huge impact on me. Fast forward 40 years, and I had a chance to visit Dealey Plaza and the Book Depository, etc. Nothing had changed from what I'd seen in the old black and white clips. I could really imagine being there on 11/22/63. Well, the same thing happened reading this book. I thought King did a great job of describing life in the late 50's/early 60's and it brought back so many memories. When I finished the book, I was sad it was over. My husband is listening to it now and enjoying it also.
