In New York Times best-selling author Kay Hooper's novel, an SCU team investigates a troubling string of disappearances. But how do you find someone who has vanished without a trace?
Something strange is happening in the small mountain town of Serenity, Tennessee. People going on routine errands never reach their destination. It's as if they simply disappear. Over the past few weeks, it's happened to five men and women - and now a child.
The local police chief calls the FBI, and a team from the Special Crimes Unit is immediately sent in. Agents Lucas and Samantha Jordan, partners in work and in life, have very different abilities. Samantha is clairvoyant and Lucas possesses a unique ability to find the lost or abducted. With them are new partners Dante Swann, a medium, and Robbie Hodge, a telepath.
The town is already on the edge of panic, but the mysterious events take a sinister turn when a body unrelated to the missing persons case surfaces and one of the SCU agents vanishes. Now, the team's hunt for the lost has turned into something very personal...and very dangerous.

I listened to the whole book only because I wanted to find out if I was correct in my guess as to why these people were taken. It's amazing that all these people with special gifts or talents are always either extremely handsome or gorgeous beyond belief. It was an okay kind of book.
I haven't read the last few Bishop/Special Crimes Unit so I am not up on all the characters. I was kind of lost wondering if a couple of the people had been in a previous book
I enjoy Joyce Bean and her audio work. She is a very good narrator and I know she does a great job differentiating all of the characters. Her voice is part of the reason I kept listening to this book.
There was more talk than action . I wanted to hear how footsteps in the mud disappeared and what happened after the little girl walked out of her kitchen. How did the missing get where they ended up. How did the UNSUB prepare their hiding place. However, the narration was excellent.
I love Kay Hooper overall, but this was the least interesting novel that she has written. I had a difficult time keeping my attention on the story line. It was very predictable too. I waited for the story line to get interesting but it never really did.
Yes I love the paranormal mysteries that she writes about and all her familiar characters.
I enjoy the paranormal mysteries generally but just had a big disappointment with this one. The writing was not Kay Hooper's best. The predictions by Bishop and Miranda were not hinted at strongly enough. You never got the point of what they were worried about in this book. I know they don't want to state the prediction because they can be changed but it was not even guessable and then you find out why...the book is not well written.
I wouldn't cut any of the characters. The story spent a lot of time explaining the "old faithful" characters and their abilities. There needed to be more demonstration and less "shields up." The explanation just went on and on but not all that much action.
I've never reviewed a book before but this one was not well written and really a poor read/listen so I felt I needed to comment. Generally I buy from my favorite authors without a sample listened to but I will listen to this author's in the future novels that she writes and audio books that I purchase.
I love this story just like all the rest of them! I miss the partner connect In this one a bit but not enough to miss up and excellent read! It was creepy on a basic primeval level. Loved the new characters! Even though I miss Hollis! Can't wait for the next chapter!
