The Doll, by Taylor Stevens

Vanessa Michael Munroe, a gender-bending bad-a** James (or Jamie?) Bond, is on the case of The Doll Maker- a human trafficker specializing in captured-to-order women.
High octane, violent, and cinematic, this was a quick pulse-pounder, but the plot lacked meat and direction- this was the literary equivalent to a Michael Bay film- lots of explosions, not much characterization.
For a better (and more realistic, and therefore more disturbing) look at human trafficking, read Box 21: A Novel.
