Book Review: Trapped

Cover Art 

ISBN# 978 0 8007 2124 2

"The queen of inspirational romantic suspense hits a home run with this compelling follow-up to Vanished. Hannon's many fans and readers who enjoy Travis Thasher will want this one."--Library Journal
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 . . .

My Reflections:  

Irene Hannon has produced another fabulous Romantic suspense with "Trapped". I am on a suspense kick and I can say there has been some great books published this month. Trapped is the second book in the "Private Justice" series, and it is every bit as brilliant as her first book Vanished. We get to meet Cal's colleague, James Devlin (Dev) in this second book and the story quickly propels the reader into a world of deceit, fear, love and suspense.

Laura Griffith's life has taken a turn for the worse when her sixteen year old sister comes to live with her. Laura is ill equipped to handle this wild teen resulting in a all out rebellion. Armed with little more than a runaway's note and a referral to Phoenix Inc, Laura is determined to find her sister and quickly. Things turn sinister and time is of the essence.

This book had me a bit creeped out I must admit, it was a bit unnerving to be in the head of the villain, and I am a bit of a wimp when faced with this kind of terrifying behavior. That said you have to hand it to Hannon for her writing skills, she masterfully wrote a book that really had me locking my doors and tossing the book on the floor (I picked it right up, I had to know what happened) So all in all this book held ME captive page after terrifying page. I loved the end and can't wait for book three!

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fast paced Romantic Suspense. Irene Hannon is one of my favorite authors and she has penned another winner with this book!
