The Doll by Taylor Stevens

On a busy Dallas street, Munroe is kidnapped by an unseen opponent and thrust into an underground world where women and girls are merchandise and a shadowy figure known as The Doll Maker controls her every move. While trusted friends race to unravel where she is and why she was taken, everything pivots on one simple choice: Munroe must use her unique set of skills to deliver a high-profile young woman into the same nightmare that she once endured, or condemn to torture and certain death the one person she loves above all else.

In The Doll, Michael finds herself deep in the world of human trafficking.  One of Hollywood's most famous actresses has been kidnapped for a buyer, but she's proving to be difficult not only because of her fame, but she will not be a victim.  The Doll Maker extorts Michael for her abilities in moving Neva to the buyer or he will kill Logan and sell her niece into the trafficking ring.

I felt like this book was lacking some of the wild excitement the other two books had, but this book had a more contained deep emotional impact.  I really enjoyed Neva, she was a wonderful character.  I also liked that this book focused more on Capstone Security and their American base of operation. 

This was another solid book in the Vanessa Michael Munroe series.  I'm definitely interested in seeing this series continue.  If you haven't read any of these books, they're fantastic for fans of action-thriller genre, or political-thriller genre.  I highly recommend Taylor Stevens' books!
