The Innocent

Taylor Stevens dips into her own past for this one, a story about the extraction of a young girl from a religious cult currently keeping her in Argentina in a house with dozens of other children, some of whom are sexually abused.

The depiction of Michael/Vanessa starts to get a bit tedious, her nightmares ending in knifed up sheets and terrors, killing random street pervs in New York, snapping necks when she stumbles onto an unrelated child abuse case in South America. But the story still has heat, her rage intact, helping her friend Logan get his daughter Hannah out of the cult.
