A runaway teen, a desperate sister, and an intrepid PI determined to discover the truth When Laura Griffith's sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a brief note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting ATF agent turned private investigator James Devlin to help. Dev knows time is of the essence with runaways--just forty-eight hours can mean the difference between recovery and ruin.

But the deeper he and Laura dig, the more Dev begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And in the icy winter weather, the trail is going cold . . .

In her latest thrilling read, queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon outdoes herself with a fast-paced tale of fear, deception, and just the right dose of romance.

My Review:

I knew I'd love this book so it is no surprise that Irene Hannon has done it again -- managed to create another breath-stealing, nail-biting, page-turning suspense. I spent most of the read screaming at the characters so excuse me if I'm a bit hoarse. Alas, they all proved to be reader-deaf so my "Stop!" and "Don't open the door!!!!" and "Look in the window!!!" and "Nooooo don't go out there!!!!!" etc were all in vain. I think I need a de-stressing massage after reading Trapped.

Hannon keeps the plot moving at a high powered pace while still managing to create incredible depth in relationships. It's an infuriating combination because you want to race ahead to keep up with the suspense but you also want to slow down and savor the friendships...and romance. A winning combination that is guaranteed to thrill the avid romantic suspense lover.
