Product Description

Reporter Moira Harrisons is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a confusing detour places her on a rural, wooded road, she's startled by the sudden appearance of a lone figure caught in the beam of her headlights. Though Moira jams on her brakes, the car careens across the wet pavement--and the solid thump against the side of the vehicle tells her she hit the person before she crashes into a tree on the far side of the road.

Publisher's Description

Reporter Moira Harrisons is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a confusing detour places her on a rural, wooded road, she's startled by the sudden appearance of a lone figure caught in the beam of her headlights. Though Moira jams on her brakes, the car careens across the wet pavement--and the solid thump against the side of the vehicle tells her she hit the person before she crashes into a tree on the far side of the road.

A dazed Moira is relieved when a man opens her door, tells her he saw everything, and promises to call 911. Then everything fades to black. When she comes to an hour later, she is alone. No man. No 911. No injured person lying on the side of the road. But she can't forget the look of terror she saw on the person's face in the instant before her headlights swung away. The person she hit had been in trouble. She's sure of it. But she can't get anyone to believe her story--except a handsome former police detective, now a private eye, who agrees to take on the case.

From the very first page, readers will be hooked into this fast-paced story full of shocking secrets from fan-favorite Irene Hannon. Vanished is the exciting first book in the Private Justice series: Three justice seekers who got burned playing by the rules now have a second chance to make things right.

Publishers Weekly

In the first of her new Private Justice series, Hannon (Deadly Pursuit) introduces us to Moira Harrison, a Pulitzer-nominated reporter who finds herself in the midst of her own mystery after an automobile accident she is involved in leaves her searching for a victim who has vanished. Harrison turns for help to Cal Burke, a retired homicide detective who has partnered with Jim Devlin, a former undercover ATF officer, and Connor Sullivan, an ex-Secret Service agent, to establish Phoenix Inc., a detective agency where the pursuit of justice seems to trump either the viability of a case or a client’s ability to pay. Intrigued by strange coincidences she has uncovered, the PIs agree to take on Harrison’s case despite the lack of solid leads. Details emerge slowly, creating a suspenseful thriller that allows the reader to develop theories along with the detectives. Romantic tension underlies Harrison’s and Burke’s relationship from the moment they meet, but the mystery remains central to the well-crafted plot. Hannon’s intricately developed characters struggle with complex moral issues, bringing into question whether the ends ever do justify the means. An engaging, satisfying tale that will no doubt leave readers anxiously anticipating the next installment. (Jan.) 2012 Reed Business Information

    This was the first time to read any of Irene Hannon's work and I am hooked I loved "Vanished" and compare Ms. Hannon's work as good as Dee Henderson's. A thrill ride of suspense on every page. Loved it and will be getting the second in this series.

    Vanished by Irene Hannon is the second book in her Private Justice Series. I like that this book is a stand alone title, meaning I do not have to read the first book in the series to understand this book.

    A teen age runaway meets a friendly gentleman at a homeless shelter during a snowstorm. Her half sister hires a Private Investigator to find her. In the process of investigating, feelings develop between the two. They make a decision not to pursuit a romance until the missing girl is found. Will this girl be found alive or will she be dead? Read Vanished to find out the answer.

    Irene Hannon once again does a masterful job with the second installment of her Private Justice Series. As I said you do not have to read the first book to understand the second book. Each book tells the story of one of the Private Investigators from the PI firm Phoenix Foundation. Characters from the previous book have minor roles in this story, so you do not feel confused.

    The story was well paced, but when you hit the climax of the story you want to finish the story as fast as possible to find out how everything ends. I found myself holding my breath because the action was so intense and compelling. Hannon does a superb job weaving a suspenseful story with a hint at romance. The story focuses on the job that needs to be done-- find the missing teen. Then the story wraps up with a bit of romance for the "icing on the cake". This was a fantastic thriller.

    My thanks to Netgalley and Revell publishers for the complimentary e-book to review.

    Yet another hit by Irene Hannon!

    Laura Griffin never knew raising a teenager would be so hard. But after her free-wheeling mother's death, the public library director agrees to take in 16 year old Darcy, who is her half-sister.

    Streetwise Darcy and Laura clash constantly...until one evening after arriving home from work, Laura finds a note on Darcy's bed - she has run away. Unsure where to begin, Laura calls Darcy's classmate Danny Martin - whose older sister is the administrative assistant for the Phoenix Inc private investigation firm.

    These private investigators are different from most...they all have law enforcement backgrounds, they were classmates in college, and they are all Irish. Their motto is "Justice First" - and they are determined to solve cold cases that law enforcement simply does not have the resources to probe. As a result, they are on very good terms with their local law enforcement.

    This particular book focuses on James Devlin, the mischief maker of the group. In the first book of this series, "Vanished", it is hinted on that something happened to Dev during his days as an undercover ATF agent. As a result, he has lost much of his carefree attitude and feels that God is disgusted with we humans in general.

    Dev is assigned to Laura's case. Although he usually dates superficial party girl types, he is quite attracted to the librarian - who also has some surprising secrets of her own.

    As the days tick by with no sign of finding Darcy, Laura becomes discouraged. But, through a homeless man and a chatty daycare employee, the Phoenix PIs discover the local daycare director - who seems a pillar of the community - is actually hiding many evil secrets. His basement is a chamber of horrors and he is always looking for a girl to "save". And now he has found Darcy....

    As with all of her books, Irene creates characters so believable you feel like you could converse with them (I was yelling at Darcy "Do NOT go in the basement!") Mark Hamilton, the daycare director, is OCD to the nth degree. He makes Captain Ahab look normal. This character is something out of "Criminal Minds". He is truly a freak and has been Irene's scariest villain to date.

    One of the best parts of this series is the verbal sparring between Dev and Nicki (the administrative assistant. Please, Irene, keep this going...it is absolutely priceless and brings needed comic relief. The banter between the three guys and the hapless Nicki (who tries to teach them the niceties of life beyond McDonald's burgers and U2)is great as well.

    The romance between Dev and Laura was wonderful.....and the mentions of Cal's wife Moira (from "Vanished") also adds a nice continuity to the series. I am already anxious to read Connor's story and am just disappointed I must wait until next summer.

    Keep them coming, Irene!
