I just had the pleasure of reading ‘Vanished’ by Irene Hannon. This is my first Christian based book, and I was a little worried about how the writing would be based on that. I was definitely mistaken, and will no longer ‘judge a book by it’s cover’ lol. The writing, plot and characters were fantastic. The only complaint I have is the ‘bad guy’ wasn’t even that bad. I mean two wrongs do not make a right, but it was a little difficult to not feel for him or understand where his motives came from. All around I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good read, or a kind of softer thriller.
Vanished by Irene Hannon.
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.
