Publisher's Summary

What will a young man be willing to do to find the lost love of his life?

Karen Glass, an American high school graduate, is visiting a kibbutz in Northern Israel. She meets Mikki who lives on the kibbutz, and they become passionately involved. They fall in love, but on her birthday, while they are on a tour of the Upper Galilee, she suddenly disappears from his car.

Mikki is devastated when the police official investigation is abandoned under questionable circumstances; the motive for the presumed kidnapping is unknown and Karen's fate remains a mystery.

Three years later, a special-forces unit stumbles upon a photo of Karen at the time of her kidnapping. Mikki's faith is finally renewed and he alerts Karen's sister, Lisa. Together they begin a perilous journey across three continents, searching for clues that will shed light on the mystery.

They uncover an ominous family secret that has cast a dark shadow on Karen and Lisa's family for many years, which becomes key to learning the truth.

Disappearance is a suspenseful love story. It will startle you, disconcert you, capture your heart, and keep you wondering how much can be sacrificed in the name of love.

    "A Mystery and Espionage Thriller"

    Disappearance: A Mystery and Espionage Thriller is a great book with interesting characters.
    The story is mainly set in Israel and the United States. The depiction of life on a kibbutz is fascinating. The tenaciousness of the "heroes" in the book is admirable and believable.
    The narrator is very good. He helps set the tone and pace of the tale.

    I love the multiple dimensions that books offer as a place to dwell for moments or the end of time.

    "Intricate and well written"

    This story well written story was a little long but it was an intricate story. I enjoyed being thrust into a different culture with this story... Believable, intense, sad, and tender. I did get lost a few times but found it easy to get back into it after a break.

    The narration was performed well with a soothing, steady voice with great timing. I will look for more from this narrator, perhaps in a different genre.

    "Mystery and espionage thriller"

    The story is well written with a well developed group of main characters. The writers attention to detail with respect to locations,customs and characters makes it easy for the listener in envision. The story in complex with a number of locations and sub plots that weave into the main story. It was easy to be drawn into the story and held interesting twists and turns to hold your interest. It was hard to put down and kept you guessing. Overall an enjoyable listen.
