Vanished by Irene Hannon
A skeptical PI.
And a secret that will shatter lives.
Reporter Moira Harrison is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a lone figure suddenly appears in the beam of her headlights, Moira slams on her brakes - but it's too late. She feels the solid thump against the side of her car before crashing into a tree on the far side of the road.
A man opens her door, tells her he saw everything, and promises to call 911. Then the world fades to black. When she comes to, she is alone. No man. No 911. No injured person. But she can't forget the look of terror she saw on that face in the instant before her headlights swung away. And she can't get anyone to believe her story - except maybe a handsome ex-homicide detective turned private eye, who reluctantly agrees to take on the case.
As clues begin to surface, it becomes obvious that someone doesn't want this mystery solve - and will stop at nothing to protect a shocking secret.
Review: I wish Irene Hannon published a new book every week. I would be a very, very happy girl if that was the case. I know I'm gushing... but she is just such an amazing author! I've read quite a few books lately that I just haven't been able to get excited about. I haven't picked up a book and had fun reading it for months, but I had a lot of fun reading this one.
Hannon is a fabulous writer. Her dialogue is engaging, the plots awesome, she has a great sense of humor, her stories are realistic and smart, and her characters are incredibly engaging. And yes... I do own every single one of her books... and I love them all.
The first book in Hannon's new series, Private Justice, promises to carry as much excitement and entertainment as her Guardians of Justice series. "Vanished" has an explosive start and the action just keeps on rolling in throughout the whole book. There wasn't a boring moment from the first page to the last. I am so excited for this series. An absolute must read!
