Book Review: Gone Without A Trace

From the Back:

The past is repeating itself--and time is running out
It's been more than two years since homicide detective Livy Reynolds's cousin disappeared from Logan Point. Unlike most people in her hometown, Livy has never believed that Robyn left voluntarily. When Dallas private investigator Alex Jennings contacts her concerning a senator's missing granddaughter who was last seen in Logan Point, Livy notices eerie similarities between the two disappearances. With self-doubt plaguing her and an almost instant dislike of the self-assured PI, she's finding this investigation an uphill battle. But with the prospect of finding her cousin on the horizon, she'll have to find a way to work with Alex--before it's too late.

My Reflections:

Gone Without A Trace is the third book in the Logan Point series, and I must say Patricia Bradley has seceded to make her name onto my "favourite Author" list. 

I absolutely loved getting reacquainted with characters form A Promise to Protect and Shadows of the Past. It is simply fantastic how Patricia Bradley is able to intertwine characters from her series and seamlessly continue the story-line with depth and a multi layered storyline.

Livy Reynolds a Memphis homicide detective. She is a woman who is dedicated, and pushes through tough situations on a daily basis, thing is she just can't seem to dodge the effects of a fatal incident with an unarmed teenager.
Needing a distraction from her own issues she heads to Logan Point, where she meets a certain PI, Alex Jennings who proves to indeed be a distraction. This coupled with an intriguing case sets the stage for an enjoyable and very unpredictable suspense!

Alex Jennings has to prove himself as a reputable PI or else.... He refuses to buckle under the pressure from his family. Can he solve the mystery of where the senator's missing granddaughter is? Is her disappearance the act of a serial killer? Time is of the essence and clues are hard to come by in this small town where there seems to be several plausible suspects.

Riveting suspense and non stop action make this book a pleasure to read.
I must admit I was a tad creeped out by the villain in this novel. Though the scenes are not by any means graphic, you do get a glimpse into the sinister mind of the bad guy, and let me tell you it's not pretty!

One thing that stands out in this book is you really can't predict who the bad guy is. I really thought I had a clue but Bradley is a master at twisting the story so that the reader is kept in the dark. A nice change from most predictable suspense stories where you pretty much know where the story is going. Fabulous job Patricia Bradley, I am waiting eagerly for book 4..

I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Graf-Martin Communications.
Thank you Graf Martin!
