What the Critics Say

"Switching between past and present, Burke writes a well-paced mystery with a heartrending climax, but her strength is the sympathy and depth with which she describes how the trauma of abduction haunts the victims." (Publishers Weekly)
"...jam-packed with unrelenting suspense...with a charismatic cast of characters and some decidedly unusual psychological overtones." (Booklist)

    "Love this series!"

    The Irene books are a light, easy read that can at times be predictable, but are always enjoyable. I picked up one of the series by accident and have been hooked ever since. I love to read them in print and listen to the audio version as well. In my opinion the narrator is the perfect voice for Irene and reminds me of a smoother version of CJ Critt's narrations. The relationship between Irene and her husband, Frank, is a great addition to the series. I love that he is from Bakersfield (my hometown) and it was really fun to hear some of their back story in this one. I can't wait to start the next one in this series. Definitely would recommend this book, and the series to anyone who likes mysteries.

    "Loved all the new and further developed characters"

    I love characters and evolution of characters. Burke succeeds at that, and with each book, her story telling improves. I can see huge strides in Hocus. In her next book, she's over the top with her story telling. If you want to know people that her star Irene Kelly knows, this is for you.
