To find another new series by one of my favorite authors was an early Christmas present I didn't expect. Irene Hannon has outdone herself in Vanished, book one of her new series, Private Justice. Vanished is a tightly plotted, fast-moving mystery that leaves the reader wishing there were at least a couple more chapters to enjoy. In reality, we will be able to observe Moira and Cal at a distance in the next book in this series, which will be out next fall!
Moira is a gutsy reporter who runs into some trouble on a dark and rainy night. She sees a face, but before she can stop, she has hit the person and run off the road. A good Samaritan stops to see how she is and if she were injured - and then disappears. Who was he, and why can't she remember? Moria's instincts as a reporter drive her to hire a private investigator, Cal, to help her solve the mystery.
To say that this is a book I just couldn't put down sounds trite, but it is true. As with other books I have read by Irene Hannon, this is a well written, well researched book that I, for one, will reread just for the pleasure of an enjoyable story.
Vanished is available January 2013 at your favorite bookseller - from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
I received one copy of Vanished for the purpose of sharing Joy In Our Journey's honest review of this book with you. No other compensation was provided.
