Vanished, a review
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.
Author Irene Hannon has masterfully written another suspenseful book. I've been a fan of hers, even though I am an avid historical fiction fan since I began reading. The above summary sets you up for a fantastic, well-plotted book. But you won't find yourself in mystery and intrigue until you open this book up- and it's so well worth it! I was drawn to Moira, the heroine, instantly. You're rooting for her, and perhaps you might think she IS crazy but a hero comes around for her nonetheless. The depth of Hannon's characters make this book a keeper. I am excited it's the beginning of a new series!
