Once again Irene Hannon has written a nearly perfect book. Within the first few pages of this new series, she has a blam-in-your-face incident that captures your imagination and attention.
Moria and Cal were a great pair and I loved the interaction, especially when they were quoting different philosophers and philosophies. I wish that they had quoted more scriptures though because Cal was written as a believer, and it was unclear if Moria was a believer or not. That annoyed me because it felt like a loose end.
Their budding romance wasn't forced and I liked that fact that it was Moria who was the first to realize her feelings and was subtly trying to get Cal's attentions.
The background characters of Dev and Cooper were good and I can see both of them having their own stories.
I have always enjoyed Irene Hannon's books. She uses very unique plots. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the mystery.
The story starts with a woman on a dark rainy road in the country who accidentally hits a person on the road... at least she thinks she did. The police can't find a body and no one is reported missing...
I love the way Ms. Hannon weaves action, suspense and intrigue together in a great story.
I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The opinion is my own. I can't wait for the next book in this series!
Looking for a suspense writer? Irene Hannon to the rescue once again. Vanished, just the title causes one to desire this novel. The blurb on the back is enough to have you pulling out your wallet, if the name of the author hasn't done that already.
Dramatic, well written with twists and turns and enough uncertainty and suspense on each page to keep you turning it in anticipation. Difficult if not downright impossible to put down. It is a legal thriller, the first in the Private Justice series, but as always, Irene does a fabulous job of making the dark and heavy work of lawyers easily navigable for the uninitiated reader. It does not take Irene many pages to have the reader deeply immersed in reporter Moira's mind, and to feel the frustration of finding no one who believes that she saw what she knows she saw, the terror of the unknown and the disappointment of the roadblocks she encounters. The characters are well rounded, though not all as well liked as Moira, Cal and Dev. Things are not all as they may appear, and the answer is not easily found. Irene Hannon is one author that is on my Keeper shelf.
I received this book free from Revell Publishing and Julie Warkentin for the purpose of reviewing. A postive critique was not required, only an honest one. The opinions stated are my own.
