  • About the book:

    Reporter Moira Harrison 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.

    My Review:
    This was a great read! I love this genre and this author does a good job with it. The genre is Christian romantic suspense fiction. The characters and plot were interesting and held my attention throughout the book. I liked the interaction between Cal and Moira. There were several twists. The bad guy definitely took me by surprise. It was hard to believe it was him. This is the first book in the Private Justice series featuring Cal and his two business partners in the private eye firm. I can't wait to read the next book. Recommended. :)
