January 1, 2013 Private Justice (Book 1)

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.

My take on this book:
"Vanished" is the first book in the Private Justice series by Irene Hannon. This story started off with a literal bang, and while I sort of knew who-dun-it that didn't stop me from being captivated from beginning to end!

Imagine you hit someone with your car, but there is no proof that it ever happened. Weird right well that's just what happens to Moira Harrison and the only person that she can get to believe her is the private eye who just happens to be a former police officer, who she hires to take the case. 

There are plenty of twists and turns involved in the story that kept me turning the pages to see how things would wind up. Overall, a great plot, a slow building romance, along with suspense, mystery and solid characters makes for a great read. If this book is any indicator I predict that Ms. Hannon's new series Private Justice is going to be one of her best series yet!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.

Available January 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group."
