Reporter Moira Harrison is new on the job in St. Louis, but she’s no rookie to investigative reporting. She knows how to dig for answers and get results. But when she hits a pedestrian on a rainy night in a wooded area—only to have both the victim and the good Samaritan who stopped to assist disappear—she turns to P.I. Cal Burke, an ex-homicide detective, to help her sort out the puzzle. Cal is more than a little skeptical of her story, especially since the police have dismissed it. But as clues begin to surface, bringing them closer to answers, the danger mounts. Because someone doesn’t want this mystery solved—and will stop at nothing to protect a shocking secret that will destroy a life built on lies.
Complex characters create intriguing relationships that make Vanished an exceptional read. The suspense is enthralling with intricate details that gradually lead Moira and Cal closer and closer to the truth...and inevitable danger.
Hannon's pacing is impeccable. Each scene compliments the next, building steadily to a nail-biting conclusion. The romance builds steadily in a realistic way. I appreciate the time the author gave to developing Cal and Moira's relationship. I experienced the nerves, the giddy euphoria, the hesitant hope of new love right along with them.
I'm in awe of the way Hannon's mind works. The suspense details and how she threads them together kept me turning pages. This is the kind of book you want to read in one sitting. And I'm not the only one who thinks so. Amazon has just named Vanished one of the best books of the month and a top ten romance release for January. How's that for a great recommendation?
