"I read "The Doll "in one frenzied, caffeine-fueled sitting, then re-read it slowly and luxuriantly, just for the sheer pleasure of it. Out of everything I've read "ever," if I had to pick a fictional character to have dinner with, Michael Munroe would certainly make my Top 5. . . Stevens excels at depicting pulse-pounding danger, and her prose and plotting are spectacular, especially given her cult background. She was denied all but a sixth-grade education, but her writing places her heads above most authors working in the thriller genre. Only Dan Brown and Lee Child come close; not even the lauded Larsson could turn a phrase or twist a plotline like Stevens can. Really, my only complaint is that I'd like her to please write faster." --"Dallas Morning News"
"Munroe is a sensational character and Stevens is a sensational writer, and together they put "The Doll"high on my books-of-the-year list." --Lee Child, "New York Times" bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
"If you are a fan of Jack Reacher, Lisbeth Salander, or Nina Zero, you need to check out Vanessa Michael Munroe!" --"BookPage "
"If you can stand the heat, Stevens' third thriller is a sizzler." --"Minneapolis""Star Tribune"
"Now for some fun. If you are a thriller buff, and especially if you loved Stieg Larsson's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" you won't want to miss Taylor Stevens newest novel "The Doll."...Her new novel takes readers on a cat-and-mouse trip through Central Europe as Vanessa tries to outrun a villain. And, let's say, a villain you will never forget. Scary as hell!" --"Hudson Valley News"
"What a great gripping novel with a provocative heroine. Taylor Stevens has done it again. This is her third novel and it, too, should be an award winner." --"I Love A Mystery"
"If you're looking for a fast-paced thriller, "The Doll" and the two previous Vanessa Michale Munroe novels are pretty hard to beat." --"Huntington News"
