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.

    " Exciting and fast-paced, "Vanished" by Irene Hannon grasped my attention at the beginning and didn't let go until the very end. I don't gravitate to suspense and crime dramas in books or on television, so "Vanished" was somewhat of an introduction to the genre. Hannon offered an addictive combination of mystery, romance, and characters with interesting backgrounds. With the exception of a few crime terms and acronyms that were new to me, I was able to easily follow the plot. The mystery was not complex, but there was enough intrigue to keep me turning the pages. For readers who like heart-pounding suspense, "Vanished" may be a bit too light and tame, resembling a Hallmark Channel mystery rather than "CSI." I found the degree of suspense to be ideal for my tastes, and there were moments that I found particularly tense. This was the first novel that I have read by Irene Hannon, but it will not be my last. "Vanished" was a nice diversion from the novels that I usually read. I look forward to reading future installments of the "Private Justice" series and discovering Hannon's other novels.

    " A very strong book, that I read in less than 24 hours because I couldn't put it down. Great characters. Can't wait to read the stories of Cal's two partners, in this new series. One moment in the epilogue gave me chills, although it was foreshadowed earlier in the book and I had expected it. Even so, it punched my emotion button. "

    " Interesting mystery with a bit of thought provoking subject matter. A little cheesiness on the romance part, but still worth the read. "

    " Loved this 1st installment of the Private Justice series and look forward to the development of the characters Dev and Conner in the upcoming installments.

    " Great characters and storyline. A bit predictable, however. Since I'm not much into romantic books, I was surprised that I enjoyed the romantic elements of this one, especially when woven in with the suspense. Overall, a good read. "
