    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....

    Story

    I can suspend disbelief well, and I read a lot of stuff that strains believability.

    But this was just silly.

    I admit that I only listened to half of the novel, because I thought it had to get better . . . but it didn't, and I value my time too much to listen to something that is trying to be believable, but isn't.

    Let me give you one small spoiler: the protagonist is supposed to be this very attractive woman . . . but she can easily pass for a guy when she needs to. WHAT???

    (And the reader seemed too melodramatic and breathy for my taste, but maybe it was just because what she was reading was so terrible -- I cannot be sure.)

    I will end the review here. It hurts my head just to think about this audiobook anymore.

    If you want to listen to a good thriller, try something by Alex Berenson, anything by Robert Crais, or one of Lee Child's "Jack Reacher" novels (really - there are lots of books that I REALLY like - JUST NOT THIS ONE!)

    And knowing that this won a "Tournament of Audiobooks," I will say this: I will never again trust the outcome of the "Tournament" in deciding how to invest a credit. (Really - this book is THAT bad.) I guess I am just not with the pack.
